OptiTrack Prime Color

250 FPS

1080p Resolution

H.264 Compression

Cinema quality color reference video.

Motion capture has never looked better. The Prime Color is fully image and color corrected to deliver a pristine reference image. Fast enough to capture any motion, in any environment.

Real-time intraframe compression.

Data compression is handled on board the Prime Color, rather than on the PC—simultaneously lowering latency and improving video quality. Intraframe compression means that each and every frame of video contains it’s own information, providing the best possible image.

No limitations on data capture/transmission.

20 MB/s up to 1 GB/s to achieve ideal data rates and capture quality. Up to 8 cameras via 10 Gb/s link can be used simultaneously. Direct to PC recording allows for longer recording sessions.


Up to 500 frames per second.

The Prime Color can capture your content at 1080p (250 FPS). Advanced windowing provides for recording capability at 720p (360 FPS) and 540p (500 FPS) as well.


Sync multiple cameras.

Capture every angle of your subject in motion for complete analysis and artistic expression. Motive allows automatic syncing of up to 8 Prime Color cameras to enable multiple views and creative compositions.


Fast glass lenses.

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.


Image Circles

The Prime Color is compatible with 1 inch, ⅔ inch, and ½ inch lenses, enabling creative expression and matching your Prime Color to your technical needs. Lenses with smaller image circles limits the maximum resolution possible on the Prime Color. Other lenses available by request.


eStrobes

The perfect companion to the Prime Color, the eStrobe allows you to stop motion like never before. This powerful LED light strobe syncs to the Prime Color allowing for maximum efficiency and features global shutter control for precise light management. Multiple eStrobes can be combined to increase the overall light output for your recording session.


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.


Ethernet connectivity.

Like the Prime series motion capture cameras, the Color is powered by PoE+ by way of a simple ethernet cable—simplifying setup and allowing simple integration with your existing motion capture setup.


Flexible compatibility, for growth over time.

All Prime series cameras can work together in one seamless system.


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.
