Sound & Motion
Create original sound from motion, invent new instruments and discover how music influences the human body. Qualisys motion capture systems are ideal for motion-dependent music applications.
Sound & Music reseARCh
Qualisys offers a complete solution for high-end sound applications for reseARChers, a system with synchronized sound and kinematics. It is based on the QTM software and the Oqus cameras with integrated support for Open Sound Control, a protocol commonly used to communicate with multimedia devices.
Oqus cameras have the ability to receive a hardware synchronization signal of any frequency (up to 50 kHz) and have its internal clock locked-on to the external source. The external clock source frequency can be either higher or lower than the desired motion capture frequency. The Oqus camera can also time-stamp its capture with the SMPTE signal. In addition to the ability to synchronize to an external source, the Oqus system is also capable of synchronizing any external equipment at a frequency independent of the motion capture frequency.
Qualisys Track Manager, QTM, has native support for streaming data over Open Sound Control. The stream of identified 3D data, 6DOF data and/or analog data can be packaged in OSC messages for transport over UDP/IP to an OSC aware software such as Max/MSP/Jitter. Besides the OSC stream, QTM also has several ways of feeding data to external applications for processing, such as Matlab.
