for Vertical launch angle and ball speed
for ball azimuth (path / horizontal plane)
Data captured: Ball speed, ball path calculated and launch angle
Go here to see how CX1 calculates ball path : CX1 ball path detection method
2. Line scan camera (3000fps)
3. GSA Golf single course software plus E6 single course demo software
4. Lighting system - Infrared LED

Price: $ 1,499.00 .................. Financing available!
Note: CX1 can be upgraded to CX2 or CX3 anytime by just adding more cameras
All CX Systems include IR LED and optional Halogen track lighting.
IR light is invisible to the eye so your enclosure remains dark and the screen image bright
The CX2 is by far our best selling system.
Even if it's price was double what it is, it would still be less than half the price of comparable systems from our competitors.
Data captured: Ball speed, ball path and launch angle
2. Ball path camera with camera mount, cables and lens
Note: Our cameras are professional machine vision cameras.

CX2 draws and fades
The above video shows how fades and draws can be produced with the CX2 system even though CX2 doesn't detect club face so that spin tilt or side spin can be calculated.
The CX2 in Surround casing contains all IR LED, Halogen and Xenon lighting, dual ball tracking cameras, Line scan trigger camera and power supplies.

New user produced CX2 Video using The Golf Club software
Thanks to Keith in Canada for sharing this with us.
CX1 - Vcam
CX2 - Vcam + Hcam
CX3 - Vcam + Hcam + Ccam
PX5 - Vcam + Hcam + PX2 sensor mat
Note: All systems come with SX Line Scan cameras
Principle of operation
The cameras - which are normally in an idle wait state - are triggered by any bright object passing through the line scan area.
Image processing will then detect if the object was a flying or rolling golf ball in the captured frames
and determine the ball speed, path and launch angle. This data is then passed to the game software
which in turn will calculate the ball's flight trajectory and launch the ball in the system.
The above image from the GSA Golf Control Panel is a true live shot from the floor mounted vertical launch angle camera of a ball hit with a 7 iron.
The camera field of view is actually far greater than what is actually required
and captures the player (on the right), the projection screen (on the left) and the floor.
The blue border lines dictate the valid field of view
and the red line dictates the maximum ball height a ball will have to be considered as a rolling ball or sculled shot.
Note that the length of the ball trace is directly proportional to the ball's speed
and providing the camera's exposure time (10 milli seconds here) and the pixel to cm scale (0.2 here) is constant - which it always is - this correlation is constant and consistent.
i.e. no matter what the launch angle is, the length of the ball trace will always be the same for a given ball speed and will always be directly proportional to the ball's speed .
Note the strong contrast between the background and the ball trace.
This is achieved by setting the camera gain high which amplifies the contrast.
The room is actually much lighter so you are not playing in the dark but the camera sees it as very dark due to the fast shutter speed.
The ball is illuminated by the overhead and side mounted halogen and IR LED lamps.
The above video shows what the 3 cameras do in the CX3 system
