Move. Track. Learn.

Vicon’s app for biomechanical insights in the field – find out more and download the latest version here.



Download Desktop Version


Working seamlessly with Vicon’s Blue Trident sensors, Capture.U offers real-time data overlaid on video, allowing you to make informed decisions right where you need it – on the pitch, trackside, poolside, courtside or in the lab.

Capture.U allows biomechanists, researchers, coaches and sports teams to analyze subject or athlete movement by assessing live information. The app provides easy access to biomechanical insights from your Blue Trident sensor.

You can collect and analyze data in the field using the app’s capture modes, offering a variety of different ways to record and measure movement – and we’re adding new modes and tools all the time. The latest addition to Capture.U 1.1 offers an Augmented Reality (AR) mode that overlays an avatar or skeleton on real-time video, opening up a new way to review movement.

Download the Capture.U app free from the Apple App store.

Analyze data in the office or back in the lab with the Desktop version. Find it in the download tab of the Technical Information section below.

Simple to use

We provide a quick start guide in the box for Capture.U when you buy Blue Trident, however, we’re sure you won’t need to use it much, as it’s possible to start capturing activities straight away.

Data overlaid on your video capture.


New visualization tools

Take advantage of the latest technology available in the market – Vicon is the first motion capture company to provide access to Augmented Reality for sports in an easy-to-use app. Analyze movement with different modes so you can decide what is right for you.

New in Capture.U 1.1 – AR visualization

Vicon is the first motion capture company to provide access to insights from Apple’s Augmented Reality Kit (ARKit 3) to evaluate movement data with our new in-the-field visualization tool.

You can now display 2D and/or 3D visualizations of your athlete’s movements, either overlaid or offset on real-time video for immediate, intuitive insights into athlete performance in the field.

Using Apple’s ARKit you can also capture and review data on specific joint angles, measured in degrees, in real-time with video overlay capability. Set an objective benchmark and the app will trigger an audio alert when the threshold is exceeded.


Capture modes

There are a range of tailored ways to capture data, so you can gain a deep understanding of movement and review performance as it happens, when you’re track-side. Share insights with your athletes or subjects to help secure buy-in to the training program.

  • Capture to Sensor

    Use this mode to capture information from sports such as long-distance running, outside of Bluetooth range – or for a higher sensor count, to capture larger numbers of athletes, simultaneously. It’s also perfect for sports where you can’t stream data over Bluetooth, such as swimming.

  • Capture to Device

    Use this mode to collect data from more than two sensors, and when you want the convenience of storing data on your in-field iOS device.

    View Image
  • Real-time Insight

    Use this mode with one or two sensors to understand any movement and review performance as it happens. You’re able to see the data overlaid on the live video and can create a report to share with your athlete or subject for later review.

“Many movements made at high speed or involving the highest peak forces, such as changes of direction, sudden decelerations, landing and even sprinting, can lead to sensor clipping and loss of data. Having high g capability with the new sensor allows us to quantify and thereby gain a better understanding of these movements, improving insight into the preparation required for our athletes.”

Andrew Gray
High Performance Manager, Cronulla Sharks

“We are investigating the suitability of Vicon’s next generation sensors for a range of sports applications from cricket illegal action detection to injury prevention in junior cricket fast bowlers, specifically for monitoring shoulder, trunk and pelvis rotations. We are also evaluating how sports like AFL and soccer might adopt and use this higher specification sensor.”

Jacqueline Alderson
Assistant Professor, University of Western Australia

“I believe that real time feedback must become the new normal as human sensor technology continues to evolve. Being able to understand performance as it happens, and subsequently make changes throughout a session if required, significantly upgrades our ability to care for our athletes.”

Andrew Gray
High Performance Manager, Cronulla Sharks

“Vicon’s new technology is very exciting, especially the integration of video with the live IMU data feed. This is a game changer for those working with athletes in the field. We want the numbers but for the athlete and coach the vision is everything.”
