Why use motion capture?
It has long been recognized that pitching is a complex movement that involves rotations in several planes, making it hard to impossible to accurately asses a pitcher’s movement with 2D systems such as video cameras. In addition to the complexity of the movement, elite pitchers may reach hand and ball speeds well above 80 mph and shoulder internal rotation velocities above 5000 degrees/second, demanding fast capture rates and short exposure times.
Accurately capture Baseball motion with Qualisys 3D technology
Motion capture combines the views of multiple cameras to track the three-dimensional movement of markers that are placed on the athlete’s body or equipment. Qualisys cameras operate at up to 1100 Hz at full field of view so you can be sure that you don’t miss any subtle details of the athletes’s movement.
