Qualisys is now shipping its long awaited motion capture camera, the Oqus 7+, to customers worldwide.
– The demand for Oqus 7+ motion capture systems has been very high, and some effort will be needed to ship all orders on time. The first batch was sent last week, and new cameras will be shipped continuously during the coming weeks to meet pre-orders, CTO Magnus Berlander explains.
Qualisys’ new premium mocap camera
As the latest addition to the Oqus family of motion capture products, the Oqus 7+ becomes Qualisys’ new premium camera offer.
– The mocap industry has a void in high resolution, high speed cameras. Now we are filling that void with a capable camera, CTO Magnus Berlander explains.
The new camera will be used by researchers, biomechanists and engineers who are interested in studying the movement and position of any type of physical object, living or inanimate. The new technology will allow Qualisys’ customers to measure motion in greater detail than previously, both in speed and accuracy.
The Oqus 7+ is equipped with a 12 megapixel sensor that allows a marker capture rate of 300 frames per second at full resolution – or a pixel rate of 3.6 gigapixels per second – the highest pixel rate in the industry. The high resolution allows the use of smaller marker sizes as well as greater measurement distances than previous camera models are capable of. Coupled with a new wide angle lens option, Qualisys can now offer field of views up to 70 degrees. The new wide angle lens is a great companion with the camera’s high resolution sensor, allowing maximum volume coverage.
The Oqus 7+ is equipped with motorized lenses, another new capability that allows for faster setup times and increased workflow. The camera also features a high-speed mode, where the resolution can be downsampled while retaining full field of view. The high-speed mode allows the camera to capture markers in 1 100 frames per second with a 3 megapixel resolution.
– We expect improved results in every field, from golf, running and cricket analysis in sports science to research and development in the marine and engineering sector as well as in gait, rehabilitation and other medical fields, CTO Magnus Berlander states.
