The Active Wand is Vicon's Dynamic Calibration device. Its active markers calibrate both optical and video reference cameras with unparalleled accuracy.
The Vicon Active Wand is the world's first Dynamic Video Calibration device and has been engineered to work brilliantly with Vue. It enables you to achieve unparalleled accuracy with simultaneous multi-plane video calibration across an entire volume.
There's no need for manual marker identification during reference video calibration – the Active Wand LEDs are tracked automatically in your Vicon software. The new combined wand wave calibrates your optical system and Vue or Basler reference video cameras in one easy step. This simple process achieves a highly accurate result providing flawless HD video overlay across the entire volume.
Calibrating your optical system couldn't be easier with the Active Wand. Two operating modes for different light conditions means you can calibrate your motion capture cameras whether you're in a hospital gait lab, a 200 camera studio or outside in the brilliant sunshine.
There's no need for manual marker identification during reference video calibration – the Active Wand LEDs are tracked intelligently. An integrated Photodiode automatically synchronizes the wand to your optical cameras and the Intensity Control allows you to adjust the brightness of the LEDs, so you can adapt them for your specific working environment.
