Intelligence Accelerated

This upgrade to all Vantage cameras adds Vicon’s new High-Speed mode expanding capabilities for all customers.  Users can easily switch between the existing windowing mode or High-Speed mode; whichever meets the needs of their motion capture.


Windowing enables your camera to speed up by narrowing the field of view, ensuring incredible fidelity while tracking high-velocity subjects such as drones and athletes.

High-Speed Mode

The new Vantage+ High-Speed Mode tracks at leading-edge speeds over larger volumes by preserving field of view while selectively reducing pixel count.

Vantage+ doesn’t just enable you to capture at remarkable speeds, it gives you the flexibility to choose how you do it.


Power, Intelligence, Speed, Freedom


The power to capture is in your hands.

The most powerful processing algorithms and electronics, industry-leading tracking, and data fidelity as well as ongoing development mean motion capture keeps moving forward. Advances in Vicon’s technology IP allow Vantage+ to hit resolution and speed sweet spots that make it truly unique.

Do more with Vantage+

Onboard sensors, LEDs, and a digital display are intelligently combined to provide you with up-to-the-minute system status and feedback on the fly, so you can capture your data with the peace of mind that everything is as it should be.

Let your system do the hard work

Vantage+ works with Vicon’s powerful software platforms to enable a light touch while you’re running a capture session, freeing you up to focus on getting results. Bump detection means that the system knows when a camera needs recalibrating and auto-heals without operator input. If a camera is upside down, your system will notice and reorient the image.

Free yourself from the capture PC

Vicon’s Control app saves you time during camera set-up and captures with its easy to use intuitive interface. Change camera settings, calibrate the system and start or stop capture all from the palm of your hand.
