The spotLIGHT™ real-time IR motion capture camera system provides wireless real-time 6DoF tracking of motion throughout a very large measurement volume. Designed for expansive tracking applications in Military Simulation and Biomechanics Research, the spotLIGHT camera provides exceptional resolution and range and a wide field of view that captures the most subtle and precise of movements.
The spotLIGHT features a single camera-to-marker tracking range of up to 100 feet; even at that distance, it delivers exceptional pixel processing performance. Two or more spotLIGHT cameras are linked to create the measurement volume, with fast update rates and low latency maintained throughout. Multiple objects/subjects (via attached passive IR markers) can be tracked at once. The system can be scaled to meet different tracking volume and accuracy requirements. A key advantage of the spotLIGHT system is its ability to provide a high accuracy rate across multiple markers within a multi-camera configuration, as opposed to just a single marker.
Designed for ease-of-use and flexible configuration, the spotLIGHT is based on a plug-in software architecture that allows for greater system customization.
Ascension Technologies Corporation discontinued the production of the spotLIGHT. Replacement products are the 3D Guidance trakSTAR / driveBAY.
