The OptiTrack Prime 13W is an ultra-wide angle camera offering high precision megapixel resolution, 240 FPS capture rate, low latency real time output and the flexibility of a Ethernet/PoE interface.
Ultra-wide FOV for optical tracking in CAVEs and other compact spaces.
Ultra-wide angle capture
The OptiTrack Prime 13W’s 82° × 70° FOV is specifically tuned for tracking almost every inch of smaller spaces, such as CAVEs, powerwalls, HMD environments, small gait labs, and other compact installations.
At double the resolution of the S250e, the OptiTrack Prime 13W’s 1.3 MP imager provides excellent 3D precision throughout its expansive coverage.
Scalable GigE/PoE interface
A Ethernet/PoE interface offers a long-range alternative to our USB-based Flex 13, ideal for home-running cables to a control room that’s removed from your VR environment.
240 FPS tracking
Track fast-moving objects and synchronize with third-party lab tools with the OptiTrack Prime 13W’s 240 FPS capture speed, global shutter and low latency real time output.
Low distortion 3.5mm M12 lens
We custom design our own super low distortion, “fast glass” lenses, which include wide band anti-reflective coating for increased light transmission, yielding larger volumes and cleaner data.
Alternate between IR and visible spectrum imaging with our Filter Switcher technology, or select a band-pass filter to eliminate interference from other light sources even more thoroughly.
Discreet form & function
The OptiTrack Prime 13W’s diminutive 2.7″ square signature and invisible 850nm IR illumination are perfect for applications that require a nearly invisible tracking system.
Intuitive & elegant design
In designing the Prime series, we considered the complete lifetime of a motion capture camera—from unboxing to setup, capture, and teardown. Each process is accommodated with a nod to simplicity and usability.
Aim Assist for single user setup
Bring the camera to view in software and optimize camera settings for aiming with one button press. Aim Assist enables a single operator to configure a system in minutes, without ever touching the software interface.
On-camera status indicator
Monitor camera health and activity based on a ring of customizable RGB LEDs mounted on the camera face. As camera status changes, so does the indicator ring.
On-camera image processing
Our low latency, on-camera image analysis delivers clean, reliable data to your PC for efficient marker solving and reference video. Image processing types include:
Synchronized, calibrated reference video
As with all OptiTrack cameras, any OptiTrack Prime 13 can be converted from a tracking camera into a synchronized, calibrated reference camera with a single mouse click. Because the cameras remain calibrated while in reference mode, 3D data can be overlaid on the video for real-time previs and assistance with post.
On-camera MJPEG compression
MJPEG compression delivers full frame-rate video with 1/10th the bandwidth of raw grayscale, enabling numerous cameras to operate in reference mode, simultaneously.
Raw Grayscale 30 MB/s
MJPEG 3 MB/s
Synchronize to external devices
Synchronize to almost any signal or source with the eSync 2. Cameras can be in sync to sources such as a professional video Genlock signal, and can also be triggered to record from general purpose inputs and software commands. Use the sync output signal or trigger with a DAQ for biomechanical force plate data alignment. Highly accurate frame timing can also be achieved with SMTPE Time Code for ease in editing and logging.
OEM & computer vision integration
Incorporate OptiTrack Prime 13W cameras into OEM or computer vision applications via the free Camera SDK, a C/C++ interface for control of and access to raw camera frames, image processing modes, camera settings, 2D object data, and camera synchronization.
