From creating advanced animation tools for feature films to helping golfers develop a perfect swing, OptiTrack is blazing new ground in motion capture technology across multiple markets. Today’s announcement of the S250eEthernet camera takes OptiTrack to an entirely new level as they break price-performance records for motion capture cameras. Offering exceptional speed, precision, scalability, processing and flexibility, the S250e is available at the lowest price point on the market.
The first full-feature motion capture camera for under $2,000, the S250e boasts many technological advancements including its small size, on-board image processing, software-controlled IR filter switching and some of the most advanced M12 lenses in the world. In addition, OptiTrack customers now have the ability to expand up to as many as 96 cameras in a single volume.
Benefits to the S250e motion capture camera include:
Speed: The S250e is capable of capturing exceptionally fast moving objects with its global shutter imager and 250 FPS capture speed. Precision: Providing 832 x 832 pixels of Super VGA resolution and some of the most advanced M12 lenses in the world, the S250e can track markers down to sub-millimeter movement with repeatable accuracy. Scalability: S250e systems can integrate up to 96 cameras with ease, due to the scalability, range and speed of Ethernet data transmission. Additionally, the S250e is powered over Ethernet, so only one cable is needed for each camera. Processing: The S250e can send a variety of pre-processed image types to the PC, resulting in decreased bandwidth and CPU load, and more efficient motion tracking. Imaging modes include raw and MJPEG-compressed grayscale, precision grayscale, hardware object and segment. Flexibility: Filter switcher technology enables the camera to be quickly and remotely modified to filter or capture visible light in addition to IR, allowing the customer to utilize the same S250e camera for both infrared motion tracking and visible spectrum scene video.
