Control connects wirelessly to Vicon Tracker and streams camera data to your mobile or tablet, enabling a single user to change camera settings, calibrate the system, and start or stop capture from anywhere in the volume.

Before you can use your iOS device with Tracker, you must pair it with the PC that is running Tracker (the Vicon host PC).

To connect an iOS device running the Vicon Control app to Tracker on a Vicon host PC:

  1. Ensure that your iOS device is connected to a Wifi access point that is on the same subnet as the Vicon host PC.
  2. On the Vicon host PC, ensure that the required connection is used, that Tracker is running, and the system is connected.
  3. On the device, open the Vicon Control app.
    The connection to Tracker is displayed on the initial Control screen:
  4. Tap the Tracker icon.
    You are alerted that you must authorize the connection on the Vicon host PC before you can continue.
