Good things come in fours.

Four models. Four impressive takes on motion capture.

The platform provides superior resolution, maxed out frame rates and anything in-between. More importantly, Arqus advanced marker detection algorithms provide exceptional accuracy.

ArqusA*

The industry’s highest-performing motion capture camera platform.

The most Arqurate camera in the world.

Accuracy is very important to us. That’s why we made Arqus our most accurate camera to date.

We've also launched the highest resolution camera in the industry – by a mile.

3D resolution1

0.03 mm – 0.06 mm

With great power comes great distances.

With it, the Arqus can detect passive markers as far as 50 m (165 ft)2.

Our most powerful strobe yet.

Arqus is driven by 24 high power LEDs and is 50% more powerful than previous models.

Our philosophy

Be safe. Use protection.

The clear choice for tough environments.

The Arqus family include models with protected housing that's specifically built to withstand any type of weather it may encounter.

Designed to be natively waterproof and dustproof, and with an extended temperature range, the camera will operate where you need it to.

Great for the great outdoors.

Our most outdoor capable camera yet.

The weather protection combined with its high-power strobe alongside the embedded Active filtering technology and the Sun filter, allows the camera to distinguish markers from the background even in the brightest of sunshine.

The sum of all this means that the Arqus cameras can be used in pretty much any environment you could imagine recording in.

Less cabling with daisy-chaining.

Simply connect one camera with the previous one.

Just like this.

Enjoy up to 80% less cabling with Daisy chaining.

The development

The only camera with an integrated quick release plate.

No more looking for that missing quick release plate. We got it built in.

The tripod mount of the Arqus makes every-day use of your portable motion capture system super easy.

Besides the standard 1/4" tripod mounts, the housing has an integrated quick-release plate compatible with most available tripod heads.

Scandinavian design. Global commitment.

30 years of building cameras. 30 years of happy customers.
