Technical Specification


The ARTTRACK System is our classic optical tracking solution, developed in 1999 and regularly updated to meet current customer needs. It guarantees a high reliability especially in big tracking volumes. It is the best solution for interaction with our Fingertracking and in Motion Capture applications.

ARTTRACK5 is the next generation of our ARTTRACK camera family, the standard for immersive 3D applications in industry and research.

ARTTRACK5’s enhanced features offer higher frame rate and resolution, as well as increased flexibility for all motion tracking applications. Our tradition of creating the world’s most accurate, reliable and stable motion tracking cameras continues.

Please note that ARTTRACK2 and ARTTRACK3 are discontinued.

ART’s unique cave cameras are especially designed for multi-sided projections (e.g. CAVE or I-Space). The camera lenses look through small holes drilled into the corners of the projection screens and make the rest of the tracking system disappear within the virtual landscape.

Our new cave solution ARTTRACK5/C has been improved with a housing construction that is more adjustable and even simpler to install. The small head of the camera with a diameter of only 36.5 mm is connected to the electronic box via a flexible cable which means that the integration of ART motion tracking into your immersive projection system can be neater and less obtrusive than ever before.

ART Controller
Together with ARTTRACK5 we introduce the new ART Controller for ARTTRACK5 systems. The new Controller is available only in a single variant for the housing – it is always rack-mountable (19″ housing). In case no rack will be available at the customer’s site it’s also possible to place the ATC on a table for example – there are rubber feet at its bottom.

If necessary compatibility with current ARTTRACK1/2/3 cameras is given. The user only needs to account for a switch between the ARTTRACK1/2/3 cameras and the Controller.

System Performance

  • Up to 50 cameras possible in one installation (starting with DTrack2 v2.8.1)
  • Fast and easy to calibrate
  • 6DOF measurement with high accuracy
  • Robust against magnetic, electric and acoustic interference
  • No optical crosstalk between cameras
  • Support of wireless active and passive targets
  • Custom-built targets supported
  • External synchronization possible, e.g. shutter glasses
  • Useable with Flystick, Fingertracking and Motion Capture


  • Frame rate up to 300 Hz
  • Sensor resolution 1.3 megapixels (full frame mode)
  • Reduced setup time with only one cable per camera
  • Integrated image processing
  • Support of active and passive targets

As a derivate of the ARTTRACK5 the ARTTRACK5/C model provides all the high-performance features plus:

  • Separate lens head and electronics box
  • Can be used with all multi-sided projection systems
  • Extremely discrete visual appearance due to camera head diameter of only 36.5 mm
  • Tracks a 300% larger volume per camera than TRACKPACK/C

ART Controller

  • Can directly host up to 8 ARTTRACK5 cameras
  • More cameras can be driven with an external PoE+ switch provided by ART
  • Easy remote access through front-end software
  • Data output via Ethernet
  • Simple camera and target management
  • Flexible adjustment of room and body coordinates
  • Convenient configuration management
  • Software Interfaces: trackd, VRPN or direct via SDK
  • Wake on LAN
  • NTP syncronization available
