The perfect blend of range, speed, and FOV. Edge-to-edge coverage across any capture area while delivering stunning camera-to-marker range and 3D accuracy.


Primex equals precision. In-house designed low distortion lenses and true 10-bit grayscale depth reduces quantization noise and improves precision—resulting in perfectly crisp and beautiful images, better centroids and better 3D accuracy.

Megapixels matter, but image quality matters more.


 Intuitive and elegant designed cameraIntuitive & elegant design. In designing the Primex series, we considered the complete lifetime of a motion capture camera—from unboxing to setup, capture, and teardown. Each process is elegantly accommodated with a nod to simplicity and usability.


360 FPS

High frame-rate capture.
 The Primex 22’s 360 FPS capture rate and image stopping global shutter can be used when your application requires Prime Series precision for movement speeds above 150mph.


Active and passive markers




Tracks Passive and Active Markers
 with positional errors less than +/-0.15mm and rotational errors less than 0.5 degrees. For some tracking applications, customers find benefit in using a combination of active and passive markers.




 Mix and match cameras. Any camera in the Prime and Primex family can be used together to create the optimal configuration for any use case. That is 11 different cameras that can be chosen to deliver the highest 3D accuracy in any environment.

6.8mm lens



“Fast glass” 6.8mm lens. We custom design our own super low distortion, “fast glass” lenses for optimal marker tracking. The Primex 22’s F#1.6 lens is treated with a wide band anti-reflective coating, which dramatically increases light transmission to the imager, yielding larger volumes and more precise 3D data.


 Volume FOV


Maximize volume size in smaller spaces. Primex 22 boasts a ultra-wide angle format and impressive range—two features that do not co-exist in any other brand of motion capture camera. It delivers impressive capture volumes with edge to edge coverage in labs and studios under 50’, and much larger measurement areas with overhead camera setups.


Powerful on-board image processing. All OptiTrack cameras feature integrated image processing. The algorithms which identify markers and marker centers, and the sequence of data delivery are important steps to achieve both world leading accuracy and low latency.

Status Indicator


On-camera status indicator. Your OptiTrack system will let you know what it’s up to with the user definable color LED indicator surrounding the lens. Recording a performance? Everyone on set knows the system is recording. Select a camera? It instantly changes color. Have your own idea? Simple software controls help you make it so.




New, higher output strobe. Ultra high power LEDs provide improved range for any given shutter setting. The world's longest range motion capture camera just got even better.






Full resolution grayscale reference video. All Primex cameras can be used as a reference video source - with synchronized, calibrated 3D overlay. Deliver and/or record full resolution, full frame rate video with 3D overlay of markers, rigid bodies, skeletons, etc.



Red camera


External sync in/out, Genlock, and Time Code. Synchronize any Prime and Primex cameras to any signal or source with the eSync 2 with all the functionality and flexibility you’d expect with a professional tracking system. Cameras sync to dozens of sources including a professional cameras’ Genlock signal, where record and other event triggering can be managed from general purpose inputs and software commands.


Use the sync output signal as a master or to trigger force plates, EMGs and National Instrument DAQs for flexible yet precise hardware synchronization. Highly accurate frame timing can also be achieved with SMTPE Time Code for ease in editing and logging. OptiTrack’s free and open SDK allows for further customization within the timing protocols.






Expert system configuration for any space. OptiTrack has built over 10,000 tracking systems in areas of all shapes and sizes. Our experts can help guide you on the most economical and suitable tracking system for your needs—for today and the future.

Before Continuous Calibration





It’s more than just cameras. In addition to the essentials to which you’ve grown accustomed, you’ll also discover several new software features that will make you wonder how you ever got along without them.

After Continuous Calibration



Enjoy innovations like our Continuous Calibration, where a wand wave is required on first installation only, then calibrates automatically just by using the system. No longer does the calibration degrade over time, temperature change, or after cameras are bumped
