Affordable, tethered tracker for capturing human motions. Developed with animators world-wide, MotionSTAR is a "turn-key" motion-capture solution when purchased with appropriate animation software and workstation. It comes in a fully-integrated enclosure with a fast Ethernet interface to your computer.
Our PC base-station hauses all electronics and a high speed interface to your host computer. Each sensor is connected to the chassis by a 35-foot cable and can be bundled together for unhindered performance.
Ascension Technologies Corporation discontinued the production of the MotionSTAR. Replacement products are the 3D Guidance trakSTAR / driveBAY.
