All data is user verifiable

In contrast to most other systems - (especially radar based systems where essentially zero data is user verifiable)

all data with the VisTrak hi-speed camera systems is user verifiable.

i.e. you can see with your own eyes in the shot video playback the real vertical (ball LA) and horizontal (ball path) angles of the shot

plus club face angle at impact to the ball and club path.

Even ball spin can be user verified.

The VisTrak SCX has all the regular club and ball tracking features with video swing playback

In addition, users will be able to view a separate ball spin video - in the top right corner - of the regular shot playback video as shown above.

This feature allows the user to visible see how the ball is spinning and in what directing it is spinning for every shot.

New Ball Spin detection using the ball logo

for overhead SCX and Eagle systems

You can now select the option "Spin line / Logo on ball" to measure ball spin for overhead camera systems (i.e. SCX and Eagle).

As the logo will not always be visible in the frames, the system now automatically scans for 2 adjacent fames showing the ball logo

in all the 16 ball speed frames.

Optional Ball markings

24 Bridgestone spin dot balls

$ 59.98

The SCX requires that the balls have dot markings on them and the camera shutter speed has to be at or below 100 micro seconds

if ball spin is to be measured and not calculated.

If not using the narrow beam IR lights, this will require that the system have to feature additional lighting.

i.e. 8 LED track lights instead the standard 4 track lights

SCX systems view ball from above. Rotation and spin axis is calculated by comparing x and y spin dot deviation positions between frames

Optional Club markings

One or two white strips can be applied to the leading edge of irons and the top edge of woods

in order for the system to detect more precise club face angle, speed and path.

However, the system will also function with regular clubs without these markings.

You can use sticky-back white glossy photo paper as club strips

-

Intel i5 or above Processor with a desktop gaming PC

Warning! Do not use PC's with AMD processors or Laptops!

8GB RAM Nvidia 1070 Graphics Card or equivalent

25GB of Hard Drive Space

Windows 10 or 11 (Required)

Internet Connection

(Required if using 3rd party game software such as E6, TGC or GSPro)

USB3 port (Required)

Note: The cameras are USB3 cameras

and will only run at the correct speed when connected via USB3 cables directly to separate USB3 ports on the PC

Warning

If using 2 cameras, do not connect the cameras together with a Hub !

All cameras must be directly connected to separate USB3 ports on the PC

Use only the supplied powered USB3 extension cables

Warning : Do not use Laptops

Laptop PCs are usually not powerful enough to run the cameras due to the limited band width of the USB 3 bus in laptops

and the gaming software (i.e. E6. TGC, Gs pro etc)

as the demand on the graphics card will be quite great and updating graphics cards on Laptops may not be possible.

 

ProTee VX vs VisTrak SCX

vs

No doubt many readers of this web-site will be asking "so what are the pros and cons of the VisTrak SCX compared to the ProTee VX ?"

As the developer of the SCX system, I will still try to be as unbiased as possible with this short pros and cons summary here.

Point 1: Price

Straight off the bat, the first thing that stands out is the massive price difference between the VX and the SCX.

i.e. the VX at $6,400 is over 3 times the price of the SCX at $1,999.

For those on a tighter budget, this could be a deciding factor.

Point 2: Ball speed, VLA and HLA accuracy

We've got this nailed nicely with the VisTrak EV system (i.e. it's spot on) but the SCX is tad off at the moment.

Current disparity mapping development should fix this soon though.

So, currently, the VX is probably more accurate.

Point 3: Club face angle, path and speed

As long as the setup is correct, the SCX's club data detection is just as accurate as the VX's

Point 4: Spin detection accuracy

Again, we've got this nailed nicely with the VisTrak EV system (i.e. it's spot on) but the SCX is somewhat off at the moment.

Both the SCX and the VX use the ball's logo to determine ball back and side spin, so there shouldn't be a big difference..

Until we can confirm the SCX ball spin accuracy, we'll assume the VX is far more accurate.

Point 5: Image clarity

On the whole, ball and club image clarity is better with the VX compared with the statndard lens SCX.

SCX images using the standard 12mm IR Lens tend to appear a bit more blurry in comparison.

However, this is mainly due to the default SCX exposure time being too long and insufficient lighting with the use of IR Lenses.

If the user defined exposure time on the SCX is reduced to under 150 micro seconds, the motion blur is significantly reduced and thus the images are clearer.

Point 6: Camera FOV

The SCX's FOV with 12mm lenses is significantly smaller than that of the VX.

Uses are thus having to place the ball within a smaller area on the hitting mat

However, the SCX can be fitted with 8mm lenses which will double the FOV

Point 7: Ease of installation and complexity

The VX has the upper hand on this. The SCX requires quite a bit more time to setup

Point 8: Weight

Compared to the SCX (a real light weight here, weighing in at just 4 lbs) the VX appears to be pretty heavy ( not sure exactly what it is, but I was told upwards of 30 lbs).

Point 9: Looks.

While the VX comes in nice looking case, the standard SCX is just a track.

Still looks pretty good though with its bright green or blue "ball detected and system ready" LED strip light.

Note that the SCX is also available with a frame case for an additional $700.

Point 10: Ball launch lag time.

The VX is amazingly fast with little to no lag time between ball strike and ball launch in the system.

The SCX (with an approximate 1.5 second lag time) is about the same as a Trackman in this area.

See the $20,000 Trackman ball launch lag time in the above video.

BTW I think a small lag time is good thing because you then have time to look up and see how the ball launches from ground.

Otherwise, by the time you look up, the ball is already half-way down the fairway.

Point 11: Versatility.

The SCX has the upper-hand here because the cameras are accessible and can be re-mounted into different configurations.

For example you can re-mount one SCX camera to the center of the ceiling and the other at floor level

so that the camera views the ball from the side (showing attack angle) as well as from above.

Point 12: Color option

The SCX can run with color cameras, whereas - to the best of our knowledge at least - the VX only features monochrome cameras

.

Point 13: Camera frame rate

The SCX can run both cameras at full 1500 fps. Not sure what the frame rate is for the VX but I assume it's similar or higher

Point 14: Camera resolution

The SCX cameras have a max resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

Not sure what the resolution of the VX cameras are but it is assumed they are far higher. At least 1280 x 1024 or even more.

Point 15: Lighting

The standard SCX comes with 4 500k LED visible light track lights.

The SCX cased version comes with with 2 24 IR LED lights in addition to the 4 track lights

To the best of our knowledge, the VX features 2 very high power IR LED lights.

The VX IR lights seem to be far more powerful than the SCX IR lights (either that or the VX cameras are more sensitive to IR light than the SCX cameras).

Point 16: Cabling

While the VX only requires 1 Cat cable to be connected to the PC

the SCX requires 2 USB3 cables (36ft with supplied power adapters)

Bottom line:

The VX beats the SCX on most points here (at least at present anyway) except the price.

So, if you're looking for the best and can afford the price, then the ProTee VX is the hands down winner.

On the other hand, if price is an issue, then nothing on the market today beats the SCX

for an overhead mounted hi-speed camera system in the $2,000 range.

In fact, the SCX is the only hi-speed overhead camera tracking system in this price range.

No one else even comes close!

Hope this small summary helps in your decision.
