Two High Speed Cameras work simultaneously at separate 90 degree angles to create the world's most accurate 3 dimensional ball flight model. The micro cameras utilise high quality CMOS sensors, capturing up to 1,000 frames per second produced at 60Hz. With each powerful lens producing a wide telephoto angle of view, capturing multiple images of the ball from impact, through the air and towards the screen. Tracking the golf ball very accurately in up to 30 separate positions, from original strike point for 3m or 10 feet of the ball flight. Whilst the golf club is also tracked for 0.6m or 2 feet, before impact on the follow through. This enables the simulator software to exactly mirror the golfer's ball flight and swing performance.
The overhead high speed camera tracks the ball from impact and alerts the software that the ball has been hit. At the same time it records the exact data relating to the horizontal launch angle, club speed, ball spin, swing path and face angle relative to the target line. This camera is also used for putting when the software is in putting mode. The data is sent at high speed via a USB2 interface to the computer's enhanced host controller, enabling the software to instantly produce the 3 dimensional ball flight.
The side high speed camera constantly tracks the golf ball from impact as it travels towards the screen. Accurately measuring the vertical launch angle, the ball speed and the ball spin to the point that all bad and good shots are registered producing the very highest of lob shots to the shots hit along the ground. In game play or practice, the choice of using a wedge or a seven iron from off the green illustrates this performance of producing the shots and trajectory you would expect to see. The ball speed is so accurately measured to produce the carry of the ball through the air.
