Smarter Networking-GigE Ethernet streams data 10 times faster at 1000Mb per second.
Super Sampling-reduces the effort required to fix misidentified markers when they're moving fast.
2D Onboard Tracking-Camera hardware processes 2D tracking from marker trajectories, ensuring better reconstruction data in real time. Backwards Compatibility-The T-Series has been designed to work withprevious model VICON MX cameras.
High Power Strobe-All T-Series strobes use a new design LED matrix available as either visible red or near infrared LEDs.
New Camera Design-Sleek new camera design can be fitted with a wide range of lenses including 8.5mm, 9mm, and 12.5 mm lenses.
