Industry-leading precision. The world’s most accurate large-scale 3D measurement system was built with Prime 41 technology. Its successor, the Primex, has since improved it!

  • Resolution: 2048 x 2048
  • Refreshment: 180 FPS (native) Max 250 FPS
  • Latency: 5.5 ms at 180 FPS
  • Accuracy +/- 0.10 mm
  • Tracking distance up to 45 m in active markers!


Available on backorder

The Optitrack Prime 41 camera gets a facelift with the new Prime x 41 and gains in flexibility!

Inside or outside? Why choose the Prime X 41 can do it all!

Outdoor capture ready to use. Prime x 41 expands its tracking range and becomes the world record for marker size for outdoor capture as well. For passive markers, the outdoor range (full sun, noon) is approximately 50ft (16m). For Signature Pulse Active technology, the range is> 70 ‘(21 m).

The Prime x camera line = precision . In-house designed low-distortion lenses and true 10-bit grayscale depth reduce quantization noise and improve accuracy, resulting in crisp, beautiful images, better centroids, and better 3D accuracy .

“The amount of megapixels matters, but the quality of the picture matters more.”


Intuitive and stylish camera

Intuitive and elegant design. When designing the Prime x series, we took into account the full lifespan of a motion capture camera, from unboxing to setup, capture and tear down. Each process is elegantly tailored with a nod to simplicity and user-friendliness.
Powerful on-board image processing. All OptiTrack cameras have integrated image processing. The algorithms that identify markers and marker centers, and the sequence of data delivery are important steps in achieving both peak accuracy and low latency. Object imaging mode


Active and passive markers Tracks passive and active markers with position errors less than +/- 0.15mm and rotational errors less than 0.5 degrees. For some tracking applications, customers find it beneficial to use a combination of active and passive markers.


Status indicator Camera Status Indicator.Your OptiTrack system will tell you what’s going on with the user-definable color LED indicator surrounding the lens. Record a performance? Everyone on the set knows the system is recording. Select a camera? It instantly changes color. Do you have your own idea? Simple software controls help you do that.

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

Mix and Match Cameras Any camera in the Prime and Prime x family can be used together to create the optimal setup for any use case. These are 11 different cameras that can be chosen to provide the highest 3D precision in any environment. PrimeX series cameras


6.8mm lens 6.8mm “fast glass” lens. We custom design our own ultra low distortion “fast glass” lenses for optimal marker tracking. The Prime x 41’sF # 1.8 lens is coated with a broadband anti-reflective coating, which dramatically increases light transmission to the imager, producing larger volumes and more accurate 3D data.


Easy Installation. Aiming aid and easy-to-access lens controls make the Prime x 41 quick and easy to set up. Motor aiming aid
Scope Full resolution grayscale reference video All Prime x cameras can be used as a reference video source – with synchronized and calibrated 3D overlay. Stream and / or record full resolution, full frame rate video with 3D overlay of markers, rigid bodies, skeletons, etc.

External I / O Synchronization, Genlock and Time Code. Synchronize all Prime and Prime x cameras to any signal or source with theeSync 2 with all the features and flexibility you expect from a professional tracking system. The cameras sync with dozens of sources, including the Genlock signal from a professional camera, where recording and triggering other events can be managed from general-purpose inputs and software controls.

Use the sync output signal as a master or to trigger National Instrument force plates, EMGs, and DAQs for flexible yet precise hardware sync. Very precise frame synchronization can also be achieved with SMTPE timecode for easy editing and logging. OptiTrack’s free and open SDK allows for further customization of synchronization protocols.

Configuration of the expert system for any space. OptiTrack has built over 10,000 tracking systems in areas of all shapes and sizes. Our experts can help you find the most cost-effective tracking system that best suits your needs, now and in the future. Volume configuration

After continuous calibration

It’s more than just cameras. In addition to the essentials that you have become accustomed to, you will also discover several new software features that will make you wonder how you ever did without. Take advantage of innovations like our continuous calibration, where a wand wave is required during first time installation only, then automatically calibrates just using the system. Calibration no longer degrades over time, temperature changes, or after camera shock
