PhaseSpace motion capture Product Impulse X2


PhaseSpace motion capture Impulse X2 Splash

PhaseSpace has revolutionized the motion capture process into one that is easy, affordable and fast. PhaseSpace's patented Active LED technology and sophisticated real-time processing eliminates marker-swapping and significantly reduces drop-outs.The Impulse X2 is the next step in the evolution of the Impulse Motion Capture System, which is recognized as the industry's most advanced tracking solution.

Advantages of the Impulse X2 System

  • Real-time tracking of multiple subjects & objects
  • Patented active marker technology eliminates marker-swapping for cleaner data
  • Solid, precise motion data with sub-millimeter resolution
  • Streamlined operation means a single person can setup and run the system
  • Portable system enabling indoor and outdoor motion capture
  • 960Hz capture rate accurately tracks the fastest motions
  • Stream motion data directly into third-party software such as MotionBuilder, JACK, Visual3D, etc...

Flexible, Scalable and Powerful

  • Capture up to 8 human subjects (body and fingers), more with multiple systems
  • Track very high speed motion at up to 960 frames per second
  • Capture spaces can be anywhere from 8'x8' to 50'x50', even larger with overlapping camera setups or multiple systems
  • Easy, smooth set up and operation
  • Scales from 2 cameras to 48+ cameras
  • Unsurpassed customer service and support
  • Used by demanding, high-profile customers including NASA, Naval Research Lab, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Disney, Harmonix, University of Cambridge, Stanford, and UC Berkeley

PhaseSpace motion capture Impulse X2 hardware

The Impulse X2 motion capture system has some of the most sophisticated and advanced hardware available. All of this technology was designed to make motion capture easier and more reliable. PhaseSpace has taken the hard work away from the user and packed it into the hardware. The entire system consists of only a few robust, portable elements.


    Dimensions: 108 mm x 92 mm x 57 mm (4.25" x 3.62" x 2.25")
    Weight: 380 grams (13.4 ounces)
    Each camera achieves an Optical Resolution of 3600 x 3600 (12 Megapixel) using two linear detectors with 16-bit dynamic range. Onboard processors produce an impressive Subpixel Resolution of 30,000 x 30,000 at 960 Hz.

    Dimensions: 126 mm x 70 mm x 25 mm (5" x 2.75" x 0.85")
    Weight: 90 grams (0.2lbs)
    The LED Controller, an RF transceiver, utilizes an onboard microprocessor to control up to 72 LEDs. Battery life is 2 to 4 hours of continual use, up to 8 hours of typical use.

    Dimensions: 20 mm x 14 mm x 3.2 mm (0.8" x 0.55")
    Weight: 4.5 grams (0.01lbs)
    Each LED modulates at a unique frequency resulting in a unique digital ID. LEDs are available in Red visible and Infra-red versions.

    Dimensions: 44.76 x 17.78 x 45.43cm (17.6 x 7 x 17.9in)
    Weight: Starting at 10.7 kg
    Processor: Intel Quad Core
    Chipset:Intel 3450 Chipset
    Memory: 4GB
    Integrated PhaseSpace HUB
    Network: Gigabit
    Built-in 2.4 Ghz Transceiver synchronizes the LED controllers with the server.

    Dimensions: 96.5 x 3.8 x 3.8cm (38 x 1.5 x 1.5in)
    The calibration wand serves as the principal tool used to accurately calibrate the system. The calibration wand allows a user to calibrate the given capture area in a matter of minutes.
