Raptor Series Provides Flexibility of Outdoor and Indoor Motion Capture

SANTA ROSA, CA – April 28, 2010 – Motion Analysis Corporation today announced
an industry first with the release of its premier real-time passive optical
motion capture cameras, the Raptor Series, which can be used outdoors as well
as indoors without changing any hardware or software.

Motion Analysis has developed an exclusive new proprietary image processing
software which is embedded in the Raptor cameras. The Raptor cameras have an
enormous amount of onboard computing power in order to accomplish all of the
required image processing computations. This new, exclusive software addresses
the various challenges of working outdoors in direct sunlight as well as
indoor environments where reflections and lighting conditions can also affect
a capture, while maintaining extreme accuracy and real-time capabilities.

without compromising the superior accuracy and real-time, high data throughput
customers have come to expect from all Motion Analysis cameras,” said Shel
Fung, Senior VP of Engineering. “The results speak for themselves there has
been no degradation of performance when these cameras are used in an outdoor

Although the obvious application will be in the sports market for performance
assessment and injury prevention, Motion Analysis believes that the ability to
use motion capture outdoors will also be valuable for the animation and
industrial markets as well.

“This is a major industry breakthrough,” Tom Whitaker, CEO of Motion Analysis,
commented. “Mocap users have always wanted to take their systems outdoors but
have been prevented from doing so. Until now.”
