The number of markers that the OptiTrack is capable of tracking depends on the size of the markers and the distance they are from the camera. At a distance of four feet, the FLEX:C120 can track at least 40 half-inch markers and the V100 cameras can track at least 80 half-inch markers.

Thanks for the response Vincent, but I'm confused. Do you mean "at least" or the maximum? -- I'm writing software and need to know the maximum amount of space I'll have to allocate.

Larry, if you are allocating space in your software then 80 is probably a good upper limit.
