Location: System Preparation Tools pane > Manage Camera Calibration section > Auto number cameras button

The Auto number cameras button enables you to quickly number the currently connected Vicon cameras in ascending order, according to their position in the capture volume.

Automatic numbering starts with the camera that is furthest from the volume origin. The cameras are then numbered in a clockwise direction around the volume. If your cameras are positioned at different levels, the cameras in the level that contains the most cameras are numbered first.

To automatically number Vicon cameras:

  1. Ensure Nexus is in Live mode and that you have aimed the cameras (see Aim Vicon cameras).


    You can auto-number the cameras at any point after you have performed the Aim Cameras operation: you do not need to perform a complete camera calibration to auto-number the cameras.

  2. On the System Resources tab, ensure you can see a list of Vicon cameras.

  3. On the System Preparation Tools pane, in the Manage Camera Calibration section, click Auto number cameras.
    The cameras are automatically numbered in ascending order, according to their position in the volume.
  4. In the volume, check that the cameras are now numbered as required.
