OptiTrack Shows Large Volume Mocap Solution

Category: Siggraph
LOS ANGELES — OptiTrack (www.optitrack.com) has expanded to the high-end motion capture market with the introduction of the Prime Series, a new family of motion capture cameras tailored specifically to large-volume capture. Offering capture volumes that extend up to 150-feet, the 4.1MP Prime 41 provides VFX studios and game developers with the tracking technology necessary for the most ambitious motion tracking and capture applications.

“The Prime Series rewrites the rules around performance and usability for high-end motion capture projects,” said Brian Nilles, OptiTrack’s chief strategy officer. “We listened to our user base, and then designed a camera series that simply and elegantly goes to work from the moment it comes out of the box. It’s simpler to set up, easier to operate and is best in class in terms that matter for precision 3D tracking. And because we ship more cameras than anyone else in the world, our component buying power and in-house manufacturing facilities enable us to provide this level of performance at 1/3 the price of others.”



The Prime 41 enables capture volumes of up to 75-feet by 150-feet. The 4.1MP cameras offer a camera to marker range of more than 80 feet, and their infrared strobes are usable with other film/video/photography gear. The cameras have a capture rate of 180fps, and offer simultaneous body and finger tracking. The system can even be used outdoors and features a simple and quick single user set up. Genlock, SMPTE Time Code and external sync is also provided.

The Prime 41 is available now and is priced at $4,999 each.
