OptiTrack Launches Prime 17W Motion Capture Camera | UAS | Scoop.it

Posted by Below the Line Staff on March 25, 2013 • 


"OptiTrack announced the launch of its Prime 17W motion capture camera – the latest offering in the company’s Prime Series line of high performance motion capture and tracking cameras. With 1.7 Megapixels (MP) and a wide-angle field of view (FOV), the Prime 17W is designed to maximize coverage in a variety of volumes.

 

The Prime 17W’s 70° by 51° field of view and 50 foot range offers users flexible deployment and configuration options. Though high camera counts are supported, the wide angle FOV is designed to deliver clean, continuous data with fewer cameras. Also capable of tracking exceptionally fast moving objects, the Prime 17W’s global shutter and 360 fps full resolution capture rate make it ideally suited for UAV, robotic and sports tracking and other demanding high-speed applications."

GraphicSpeak » Autodesk acquires Allpoint for 3D LIDAR expertise | UAS | Scoop.it

Autodesk continues its investment in Reality Capture; other recent acquisitions include Alice Labs and RealViz. Autodesk defines Reality Capture as the practice of creating digital models of physical objects and spaces using photography, laser scanning, and other technologies.

Allpoint brings several significant pieces of the puzzle to Autodesk, including large-scale 3D scan data registration, an area of significant research focus but little commercial application.
