Leading the Industry in Optical Motion Capture Solutions

Industry Firsts

Motion Analysis Corporation (MAC) has been at the forefront of motion capture technology since its founding over thirty years ago. In 1986, MAC developed the first camera designed and manufactured exclusively for motion capture, the Falcon (pictured at left). Fourteen years later,  the first digital motion capture camera, the Eagle, was introduced at SIGGRAPH 2000.

MAC’s software is no less groundbreaking. Cortex and its predecessor, EVaRT, hold the exclusive trait of presenting a single, integrated user interface to the motion capture technician. Customers do not have to switch in and out of different software programs as they work.

Our cameras and software are backwards compatible – we do not require our customers to upgrade to new cameras in order to use the latest version of Cortex.
