Active LED Calibration Wand when working only with Custom Active Markers (LED's)

Post by JosephMatan » Mon Feb 03, 2020 7:53 am

Hi,

I've a setup of Prime 17W cameras, and all the rigid bodies I'm working with are built from Custom Active Markers (LED's). I don't use passive/reflecting markers at all.
Does my setup should be calibrated with an Active LED Calibration Wand ?

Thanks,
Joseph

Hi Joseph,

You can calibrate your volume using the normal passive wand. The LEDs you are using will simply track as though they are passive markers, since they should utilize continuous illumination as the passive markers do.

The active wand is more for volumes that push the limits on maximums distance, or where the cameras may not have the IR ring to emit their own light.

Best,
Steven
