PhaseSpace Inc offered me a full 8-cameras Impulse X2 motion capture system and software to establish collaborations and to continue my research activity in Cyprus.

The Phasespace Impulse X2 system uses 8 cameras that are able to capture 3D motion using modulated LEDs. These cameras contain a pair of linear scanner arrays operating at high frequency each of which can capture the position of any number of bright spots of light as generated by the LEDs. The system offers a fast rate of capture (480Hz) and allows the individual markers to be identified by combining the information from several frames and hence identifying the marker from its unique modulation.

The system is able to capture 3D motion data over time of a single character, maintaining the correct human proportions and the naturalness of the action, while having a realistic motion. The system also offers mobility enabling motion capture sessions to be performed at dance schools and studios.
