Experience the Active Marker Advantage

Our Intelligent Active Marker System is unrivaled in speed, precision, and flexibility.

Unique Marker IDs

Spend more time capturing and less time cleaning up data. Our Active LED markers eliminate marker-swap making the Impulse X2E system ideal for multi-actor, mass-produced props, and real-time tracking applications.

960 FPS Capture

PhaseSpace's patented tracking system delivers ultra low latency, high precision data in real-time. This makes PhaseSpace perfect for Virtual Reality, Biomechanical Engineering, and Robotics.

Capture Outdoors

Capturing in direct sunlight? No problem. PhaseSpace has the widest operating range, so you can leave the controlled environment and capture your data in the field.

The Fastest Real-Time Motion Capture System on the Planet.

No other motion capture system can come close to the Impulse X2E capture rate of 960 frames per second at full 13MP resolution. That means you don’t have to choose between speed and resolution: You get the best of both worlds. Whether it’s Virtual Reality Entertainment or Biomechanical Engineering, the most demanding customers use PhaseSpace for its superior speed and precision.

The Highest Resolution Sensors Ever in a Motion Capture Camera.

The Impulse X2E system captures at an astonishing 36,000 x 36,000 sub-pixel resolution in HDR. (1,300 MP) That’s roughly 100 times the resolution of most motion capture cameras. What’s our secret?  We use customized linear detectors instead of RGB cameras like other mocap systems. This equates to unparalleled tracking precision at full speed. (Down to 20µ at 960 Hz)
