the most cost-effective means of tracking full-body motions in
the world today. Developed with animators world-wide,
MotionStar is a "turn-key" motion-capture solution when
purchased with appropriate animation software and workstation.
It comes in a fully-integrated enclosure with a fast Ethernet
interface to your computer.
The rack-mounted chassis houses all electronics and a high
speed interface to your host computer. Each sensor is
connected to the chassis by a 35-foot cable and can be bundled
together for unhindered performance.
MotionStar Wireless 2
MotionStar Wireless 2 with new and improved Advanced DC
Tracking Technology and our Environmental Analyzer, which we
will loan to you, overcomes the metal, noise and accuracy
problems that once plagued magnetic mocap.
Use it to capture the full-body motions of as many as five
performers in real time for multiple character interaction.
Without occlusion or perceptible lag. No other motion-capture
system in the world captures as many performers as quickly and
accurately as MotionStar Wireless 2.
ReActor2 captures the movements of an untethered performer ?
free to move in a capture area bordered by modular bars that
fasten together. The digital detectors embedded in the frame
provide full coverage of performers while minimizing blocked
markers. The Instant Marker Recognition instantly reacquires
blocked markers for clean data. This means less post
processing and a more efficient motion capture pipeline.
A precise optical tracker for the most demanding tracking
environments. Designed for head and object tracking in
simulator, medical and 3D visualization applications.
laserBIRD 2 continuously scans the work space enabling its
sensor to instantly sense emitted laser beams. Signals are
then directed back to the scanner's DSP electronics for
processing and output of position and orientation data to a
Flock of Birds
The Flock can be configured to track from one to four sensors
simultaneously with one or more RS-232 interfaces to a host
computer. Long range coverage is easily added by "clicking in"
our Extended-Range Transmitter (ERT/ERC). For high speed
operations, add more RS-232 ports and use our Fast Bird Bus (FBB).
Nest of BIRDS
The Nest of Birds simultaneously tracks the position and
orientation of up to 4 sensors, providing high speed, accurate
tracking data. Plugging directly into a USB or RS-232
interface, the Nest's installation CD lets you get up and
running fast! Ascension's DC magnetic tracking technology
allows the Nest to accurately track with minimal interference
by conductive metals.
DC Magnetic tracker with an electronics card powered by the
PCI bus on your personal computer. pciBIRD works with 1 or 2
sensors, either 8mm or 25 mm in diameter.
miniBIRD offers full functionality of our other DC magnetic
trackers, with miniaturized sensors as small as 5mm wide. The
miniBIRD 800 is also available as an ISA-based configuration
that supports simultaneous tracking of two 8mm sensors.
Miniaturized Sensors for IntraBody Navigation and Localization
Locating medical instruments in 3D space is a key requirement
for image-guided procedures.
With that knowledge, clinicians can display an overlay of
instrument coordinates onto pre-operative scans or real-time
images. They also can guide tools to anatomical targets for
intervention and delivery of therapeutic agents. Combined with
imaging modalities, the tracker lets clinicians "see" through
the patient for internal guidance and navigation.
Because targeting devices must function within the human body
and be metal tolerant, there is an emerging need for new
tracking technology. It must be accurate, unobtrusive and
unaffected by line-of-sight or environmental issues.
microBIRD is a new Ascension tracker that meets these
Features include 6 DOF DC magnetic tracker with a sensor
diameter of just 1.3 mm - small enough for insertion into 4
French catheters. It also offers conductive metal immunity.
