MVN 2019.1 (Beta) introduces a new feature called Wireless OBR. This feature makes it possible to setup multiple Bodypacks for On Body Recording through your wireless connection. It also timesyncs the data between all the selected Bodypacks.
- in this MVN Beta release the Remote OBR feature is currently named Wireless OBR. This will change to Remote OBR in future releases.
- The Firmware on the Bodypack requires an update (see https://base.xsens.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001481789-Release-Notes-MVN-Software)
Setup Wireless OBR
You can find the Wireless OBR feature in MVN under OBR > Wireless OBR. This will bring up the Bodypack Configuration window (see image below)
You can add bodypacks by connecting them to your wireless connection (e.g. access point).
In the Bodypack Configuration window (left) you have the following information:
- Selection and Status of Bodypack
- Bodypack ID
- Bodypack Name
- Recording state
- Remaining battery life
- Connection power
- Recording time left (HH:MM:SS)
- The sync status of the connection
Selecting a Bodypack in the Bodypack Configuration window (image below, A) will bring up the System Configuration window (image below, B).
The On/Off toggle button should automatically be set to On (this enables Wireless OBR functionality).
Once all Bodypacks are setup properly, you can start the OBR session by pressing the Start Recording button.
The recording will start after the set Recording Delay. To ensure the time synchronisation between Bodypacks, it is important set the Recording Delay higher than 0 s.
- The calibration process is the same as in regular OBR (except that the recording is started wirelessly).
- The import files process is the same as regular OBR.
You can stop the OBR session by pressing the Stop Recording button. Afterwards you can access and use the data the same way as in regular OBR.
To disable the Wireless OBR functionality, you can press the On/Off toggle button to Off.
