Nexus Insight

A powerful new reporting tool for life sciences



Introducing Vicon’s powerful new life sciences reporting tool, Nexus Insight. Built based on dialogue with our community, Nexus Insight simplifies reporting, saves time, and gives you control of your data, all within Vicon’s best-in-class motion capture ecosystem.

Whether you choose to use our automated reporting tools or create your own custom templates, Nexus Insight will bring clarity to your reporting, making it easier to visualize, interpret, share and compare your data.

Nexus Insight gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your sensitive data is secure. Store your data offline, and use Moveshelf’s tried and tested technology for remote sharing when it’s time to collaborate.


“One of the key things that we can do with Nexus Insight is use it to produce reports that an athlete can take away. Users now have these simple steps to go through using this tool which integrates really nicely into Nexus itself. That’s just another example of Vicon being one step ahead of us, producing the next technology that will be really valuable to us moving forward.”

Simon Briley, Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics

University of Derby

“This tool can be used effectively to illustrate key findings in an accessible way while still allowing the possibility for deeper exploration. Within teaching, this could enable students to interact with graphs alongside interactive 3D Vicon data and produce automated reports based on sample data collection procedures for analysis and feedback within sessions. I’m excited to see what comes next and what users can do with it. Hopefully, it can play a small part in continuing to spread our great science of biomechanics to the wider world.”

Stuart McErlain-Naylor, Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics

Loughborough University

“Nexus Insight is an obvious progression for the Nexus suite of products. Vicon has always been an industry leader with their motion capture ecosystem, but with Nexus Insight, we will now be able to streamline our data capture, processing, and reporting. The interface is simple to use and the customizability of the templates is a real plus, without losing any richness of data. Nexus Insight will be a game-changer for me and my team to be able to quickly produce simple, yet sophisticated reports for coaches, collaborators, and participants.”

How do I set up my network card?

1. Open the Network and Sharing Center and navigate to Change Adapter Settings. Vicon Vantage/Vero cameras are designated to one port.  For each Vue (or Bonita Video) camera connected, there will be additional network port used.

2. Right click on the proper port and go into the Properties. The Local Area Connection Properties window will open. Make sure only Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) is selected.

3. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) from the list and select Properties to assign the proper IP address.

a .Vantage/Vero cameras will have the following IP Address: and Subnet Mask of:

b. The first VUE camera will have the following IP Address: and Subnet Mask of

c. Any additional VUE cameras the last IP value is incrementally increased by one. For example, the second VUE camera will be

Select OK to close out of the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties.  And OK again to close out of the Local Area Connection Properties.  This will make sure all changes have been saved.

4. Feel free to rename the network port so it is easily identifiable. Such as ViconMX, VUE1 or VUE2
