In response to demand from customers in its respective market, this update also includes Chinese (simplified) language support in both Analyze and Animate software interfaces.
Furthermore, MVN 2019 adds a number of other improvements. ‘In-capture’ enhancements include a revised approach to the biomechanical model for pelvis and head positioning and redefined foot details for gait analysis. Post-capture, the update allows users to plot multiple parameters onto graphs for analysis and the possibility to swap trackers for on-body recorded files.
A higher ground
MVN 2019 is Xsens' proprietary motion capture software. It is used in conjunction with Xsens MVN suits and hardware to record, monitor and analyze movement. Xsens MVN solutions are based on fusing inertial technologies such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers to capture movement.
The benefit to users of an inertial motion capture suit is that they can capture anywhere, in any environment, with total confidence – and without the need for markers, volumes and cameras or extensive post-capture clean-up or editing.
The Xsens MVN 2019 update is available for all existing customers with a valid support contract and will be shipped as standard with every new Xsens purchase.
Hein Beute, Product Manager at Xsens, comments: “Since our groundbreaking 2018 release, we have observed content creation studios and academic research departments are adopting inertial motion capture into their ‘tool set’ at an ever increasing rate as the standard of quality in the data recorded has reached such high levels”. The MVN 2019 software update showcases our commitment to continuous product improvement and innovation. We love seeing what our customers achieve with our tech and our teams at Xsens will continue to keep pushing what is possible in inertial motion capture.”
