Press release   •   Mar 15, 2018 08:55 GMT

The newest addition to the Qualisys Miqus motion capture camera collection reveals a camera that is best in its class when it comes to portable and affordable mocap.

Gothenburg, Sweden, March 19, 2018 – Qualisys, the leading provider of precision motion capture technology, today announced the launch of Miqus 5 (M5) - the latest model in the company’s portable and affordable Miqus camera line. Read more

The Miqus M5 proves that Miqus cameras are becoming even more sophisticated. With a resolution of 4 megapixels capturing at a frequency of 180 frames per second – 360 frames per second in high-speed mode - its specifications compare to those of Qualisys’ high end camera line: the Oqus.

In fact, the Miqus M5 exactly matches the resolution and frame rate of the Oqus 5+ model. Oqus cameras are known to capture in any environment, with durable outdoor capabilities and covered IP67 protected hardware. The Miqus meanwhile, though not recommended for outdoor capture, contains powerful and nimble technology, fitting all the essential motion capture functionality in a small and lightweight camera body.

The Miqus M5 is best-in-class when it comes to latency and speed, but comes at a competitive price that makes it fit more budgets, giving more organizations than ever the opportunity to discover the power and simplicity of a Qualisys mocap system.

Qualisys has already launched two new products this year - the Oqus 6+ and Miqus Color Video, both of which have been well received by the market. The Oqus 6+ is an Oqus camera that reflects advanced resolution and frequency without breaking the bank. Miqus Video integrates with Miqus infrared cameras using the same connection. When calibrated together, it streams perfectly synchronized video for 3D data overlay.

With three new breakthrough releases delivered thus far in 2018, Qualisys continues to reveal its rapid advancement in mocap technology.
