Visualeyez VZ4000v, at half the form factor!
Effectively measuring only 62cm in length and weighing in at 2.2kgs (4.9lbs), the VZ4050 offers real-time active optical
motion capture through the patented 90° wide-angle technology.
Markers can be sensed from as close as 25cm and as far as 7m away. A single VZ4050 can be used to capture 3D motion data from up to 512 uniquely identified markers in real-time, and multiple VZ4050 units can be strung together to capture a larger area or motions from multiple subjects and objects.
All VZ4050 trackers come with the new 'Distributed Tactile Feedback' capability. This allows them to activate the vibrator-equipped markers to vibrate and thus provide tactile stimuli or cues to motion capture subject(s).
The new small form factor at 62cm opens up real-time capture research possibilities in areas such as human factor engineering, cockpit pilot-instrument interaction, car driver-dashboard interaction analysis, in-vehicle crash test monitoring, Virtual Reality, Virtual Training, Augmented Reality, etc. This is further facilitated by PTI's unique Automatic and Continuous Multi-Tracker System Calibration capability provided through VZAutoCal and by the latest Instant Continuous Multi-Tracker System Calibration capability provided through VZInstaCal for flexible environments.
Each VZ4050 tracker features a thermal-cycled rigid carbon composite construction for permanent calibration accuracy and stability, with a lightweight aluminum shell. The optional elegantly designed custom aluminum tripod also doubles as a heavy duty protective case during tracker transportation.
