The Owl Digital RealTime System consists of Owl Digital Cameras and Cortex software that captures complex motion with extreme accuracy. Real-time capabilities allow our customers to see capture results at the same instant as the subject is performing a specific task. The system's power, ease of operation, simplified set up, and extreme accuracy have made the Motion Analysis Owl Digital RealTime System an economical choice for those who want the benefits of digital technology.
The Owl Digital Camera, with a 640 x 480 full resolution at up to 200 frames per second, offers the motion capture industry the benefit of all-digital technology at an economical price for smaller environments.
The Owl Digital Cameras provide today's motion capture technicians with a tool that assures reliable and accurate data. With digital technology there is no degradation of the signal over distance, less noise, and no resampling of data on another piece of electronics.
The Owl Digital Camera signal goes directly to the tracking computer via an Ethernet connection. The signal processing is embedded in the camera. This streamlined system of motion capture from camera to computer means less hardware and less potential for equipment problems. The FPGA (field programmable field array) built into the Owl is software and firmware upgradeable via the Internet - you don't even have to take the cameras down!
Cortex provides a user with a simple and powerful interface. Under a single software environment you can set up, calibrate, capture motion in real-time, capture motion for post processing, edit and save data in the format of your choice.
A dual monitor option provides the motion capture technician with a full view of the active capture display and graphic panels on one monitor while viewing application forms and panels on another monitor.
