About this guide

This guide contains instructions on using Vicon Nexus. It explains configuring your Vicon system within Nexus and the basic tasks that make up the everyday Nexus workflow. It assumes you have already installed and licensed Nexus and set up your Vicon system hardware. If you need information about these procedures, see Installing and licensing Vicon Nexus and/or the Vicon documentation that was supplied with your hardware, or for help with how to connect up your Vicon system, see Vicon system configuration and connection examples. You can also contact Vicon Support.

Videos of many of the procedures described in this guide, including many additional tips and examples, are available from the

Vicon Nexus 2 Tutorials playlist

 on YouTube, beginning with system calibration.

As the videos were recorded using an earlier version of Nexus 2, you may notice small differences in the user interface.
