  • Matlab PiG no longer crashes when output values are indeterminate
  • Trial captures will not be abandoned when using capture before start with subsampled video
  • Graph horizontal range no longer becomes spontaneously unlocked
  • Nexus is more robust when opening an invalid C3D file

Known Issues:

  1. When collecting IMU sensor data at higher frequencies (500Hz), exceptionally long trial ( >30 mins) may show less reliable optical - IMU frame alignment.

  2. IMU sensor may require a manual re-connect in Nexus if they are out of communication range (Bluetooth) for an extended period.

  3. If streaming preview frame from an IMU sensor are not available at the time a trial capture is started, then data for that sensor may not be available in the trial.


  • Nexus 2.x Safenet license

  • For the ProCalc pipeline operation - ProCal 1.2 must be installed.

  • IMU Sensors are ONLY supported in Windows 10 (64bit).

  • Nexus Recommended and fully supported in Windows 10 (64bit) -- with .NET Framework 4.5 and above.
