Santa Rosa, Calif. – Motion Analysis Corporation revealed an industry first with the release of its premier real-time passive optical motion capture cameras, the Raptor Series, which can be used outdoors as well as indoors without changing any hardware or software.
Motion Analysis has developed an exclusive new proprietary image processing software which is embedded in the Raptor cameras. The Raptor cameras have an enormous amount of onboard computing power in order to accomplish all of the required image processing computations. This new, unique software addresses the various challenges of working outdoors in direct sunlight, as well as indoor environments where reflections and lighting conditions can also affect a capture, while maintaining accuracy and real-time capabilities.
Although the obvious application will be in the sports market for performance assessment and injury prevention, Motion Analysis believes that the ability to use motion capture outdoors will also be valuable for the animation and industrial markets as well.
