VisTrak SCX xenon

$3,999.00

Expected release date:1st quarter 2023

Nearest competitor: Uneekor Eye XO at $10,000

Note: the regular SCX can be upgraded to SCX Xenon specs at a later date for $1,000

How the SCX Xenon measures ball spin without real dot markings.

The method compares and matches dimple patterns of two ball images.

Using two fast hi-resolution images of the ball in flight,

a dot matrix is used to sample the gray-scale level of every virtual dot in the image of the ball.

Thereafter, a series dot pattern matching processes of the two ball images

- involving multiple rotation and x,y shifting steps - are performed.

The result of the matching process then determines the amount of ball rotation and its direction within the time of the 2 frames.

From these results, spin rate, side spin and spin axis can be calculated.

Note that in order to obtain very sharp images of the ball without any motion blur,

the camera exposure time has to be set very low (around 90 micro-seconds).

At this very short exposure time, regular IR lighting will not be able to illuminate the ball sufficiently.

Thus, IR Xenon flash units are used.

SCX to SCX Xenon upgrade

Purchasers of the regular SCX will be able to upgrade their system to SCX Xenon specs

at a later date by adding the IR Xenon flash unit if desired.

SCX IR dual flash unit

$1,000.00

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.

Ball spin is usually calculated from ball and club data so that you can use regular unmarked balls.

However, you can also use marked balls in order the view the spin in the shot video playback

and optionally choose that the system measures ball spin from the markings.

Note that in this case, the system will require additional IR or Halogen light in order to measure ball spin from spin dot markings on the ball.

Use 50 or 75 watt narrow beam halogen bulbs with track lighting

Instead of IR LED, you can also use all Halogen lighting

Optional Ball markings

24 Bridgestone spin dot balls

$ 59.98

Optional Club markings

How the AOA strip works:

The AOA strip has an overall known length and a known length when viewed from overhead with a known club loft.

If striking the ball on the down swing, the length will appear to shorter, and appear longer if hit on the up swing.

Based on this, AOA can be calculated.

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

Measured Ball Spin and Club detection without markings on balls and clubs

The new ASD and ACD software detects both ball spin and club data without markings

Note: Ball spin detection without markings requires the IR Xenon Flash

SCX Dynamic ROI (Region of Interest)

The Dynamic ROI feature allows the user to place the ball in a 2ft wide area on the hitting surface

VisTrak AOA

AOA launch angle and club loft comparisons are shown

The red balls show what the launch angle would be if ball was struck square to the ball so that the LA would equal the loft of the club

The white balls show what the actual LA was for the shot.

VisTrak SCX/Eagle ball spin calculation

Note that ball spin is usually calculated from ball and club data so that you can use regular unmarked balls.

However, when using dot marked balls and additional lighting,

spin rate can be calculated by measuring the distance and direction the dots have moved from one frame to the next.

Add your cameras to the SCX case

Includes all 3 IR LED panels (972 LEDS), power supplies, camera mounts, IR front panel, ceiling mount and cables

$ 1,299

 

VisTrak SCX case without LED lights

$ 899

Non-cased camera systems vs. cased systems

SCX cased $2,999

-

SCX non-cased - from $1,299

Advantages of non-cased camera systems:

1. Straight off the bat, non-cased camera systems are almost half the price of cased systems

Reason: while it takes some 15 hours to assemble a cased system, a non-cased camera system takes only 15 minutes.

2. Non cased cameras are far easier to mount

The SCX total weight is over 15lbs and probably requires 2 people on a step ladder to mount,

whereas a camera only weighs a few ounces and can easily be mounted by a single person.

3. Non cased cameras are far easier to aim and focus adjust

Access to the camera's mount and lens focus dial is far easier if the camera is not cased.

4. Non cased cameras allow the user to swap cameras around in different configurations to change to different systems

For example, you can setup the cameras as an SCX, EVi, KX, or LX system simply by re-mounting the cameras and lighting.

In a cased system, the cameras and lighting are fixed for the particular system the case was designed for.

5. Fast lead and shipment times

While cased products can take well up to 4 weeks to ship, cameras are usually shipped within 24 to 48 hours.

6. No requirement to sign a sales agreement

As the value of just the cameras is a lot lower than the cased version, we can take the risk of selling the product without a sales agreement.

One of the many reasons for this is that fully cased products that weigh as much as 15 lbs can easily be damaged during transport

- seemingly no matter how well they are packed -

and often a return cased product is nowhere near as well packed and thus far more likely to be damaged.

End result is that we can get a damaged unsellable product back that results in a total loss for us.

Whereas the chances of single small and light weight camera being damaged during transport is almost non existent.

Advantages of cased camera systems:

1. Other than some may say they look better, I can't really think of any great advantage
