Before you can use your Vicon Nexus system, you must configure the system for motion capture. After this, you prepare a hierarchy of folders in which to store all the files associated with your motion capture trials.

These procedures are explained in the following topics:

Before you begin to configure your Vicon system, ensure that:

  • Your Vicon system hardware (including the Vicon cameras, Vicon connectivity units, and any supported third-party devices) must be set up and connected and Nexus must be installed and licensed. Your Vicon system may have been professionally installed by a Vicon Support engineer. If you are installing the system yourself, for full details on installing system hardware, see the Vicon documentation that was supplied with your hardware, and for installing and licensing the software, see Installing and licensing Vicon Nexus.
  • Vicon Nexus software is licensed using Safenet licensing and the VAULT licensing system. Ensure that the licensing drivers are installed on the host PC, and that the dongle is plugged into an appropriate port (parallel or USB) on the computer while you are running the application software.
  • The IP address for the Ethernet card on the host PC must be set to 192.168.10.1 using the default IP address range (for details, see the Vicon documentation website).
