Course description and Schedule
Information about MPI
Simi Motion Real Time Tracking
Simi now offers a tracking module which automatically tracks highly visible reflective markers on recorded video in real time. Markers are automatically detected and tracked by the software thus requiring the user to only identify the already tracked markers. The new real time tracking saves time and relegates the old manual marker tracking to the past.
With the new real time tracking, movements can be tracked and analyzed even faster. Since the Simi system is still video based you have the added advantage to edit data post tracking.
New systems in experimental neurology
New systems for the analysis of mice and rats in experimental neurology have been established at the University of Louisville as well as in other clinics.
Video based motion analysis systems are being used to work on research projects in experimental neurology.
The systems contain on one hand a mobile system with 2 cameras at 200 and 100 fps and on the other hand a desktop system with 4 cameras at 100 fps.
Appenzeller Sport AG Simi’s new cooperation partner in Switzerland
Appenzellerland Sport AG is our new cooperation partner in Switzerland. This cooperation is aimed at marketing Simi products there as well as customer training and support in Switzerland.
Friendly Sensors Simi’s new marketing and technology partner
Simi and Friendly Sensors have agreed on a global cooperation. The Friendly Sensors system enables mobile monitoring of Simi Motion analysis results.
New Simi 8 x 200 fps systems, 640 x 480 pixels
We can also offer a complete system which captures data synchronously using up to 8 cameras at 200 fps and a resolution of 640 x 480 and saves it directly to the hard disk. The complete system is run on a computer specially configured by Simi. One of the first customers to buy this system was the University of Stanford. For further details please contact our Sales Team
Aspire Center chooses Simi Solutions
The Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence in Qatar has decided to equip its sports facilities with Simi Motion analysis systems, including for example the solution with four 500 fps cameras at a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.
We can now offer existing Simi Motion customers additional analysis modules for marker capture and data evaluation. This allows more analysts to work on the recorded data at the same time. Video and analog data can be imported and exported, but these must have been recorded using the basic Simi model.
Additional analysis license for 2D Motion: 2900 Euros
Additional analysis license for 3D Motion: 1400 Euros
These analysis licenses can only be used with an existing basic module, but they can also be augmented by other Simi licenses. For further information and ordering please contact Sales Team

Motion capturing for everyone! (07/2006)
Introductory offer for universities and colleges: we are selling our motion capture software Simi MotionCapture3D to academic institutions at a special introductory price up until 31.10.2006.
Motion capturing appeals more and more to the producers of animated sequences for games, films and television. This is because this process is much faster and provides natural looking movements which are almost impossible to produce using conventional hand-drawn character animation.
Unfortunately, because of the high costs involved, motion capturing has been used very rarely or only at the top end of the market and few people have had the opportunity to use the software.
In line with our motto “Motion capturing for everyone” we are selling our software solution MotionCapture3D at a special introductory price until 31.10.2006. Make sure to get your licences now and let your students of today learn the techniques of tomorrow.

"...You could do a shoot and produce data in an hour." (02/2006)
The magazine "3D World - The magazine for 3D artists" put the Simi MotionCapture3D software to the test.
To find the answer to the question: "What is the quality of the data which can be produced using Simi MotionCapture3D?" the authors described how to operate Simi MotionCapture3D and the benefits and drawbacks of working with the software were highlighted.
The magazine came to the conclusion that it was possible to gain very good 3D data for realistic animations with Simi MotionCapture3D. The amount of time saved in comparison to other animation processes was confirmed and the low purchase costs were commented upon positively.
This article appears on page 86 of the February 2006 edition of the magazine "3D World - The magazine for 3D artists".

Recorded objects are automatically named after the file name of the video. It is also possible to blend in extra guide lines during capture.|
Simi news (05/2005)
In cooperation with the Bavarian Olympic Training Center and the Technical Universities of Munich and Freiburg, Simi has completed a unique project at the world-famous ski jumps in Oberstdorf and Hinterzarten. Athletes at the venue of the Four Hills Tournament can now be recorded and analyzed with 14 AMTI force plates as well as two synchronous Basler high-speed cameras. The software has been specially customized to meet the needs of trainers. Simpler automatic recording options operated by remote control and automatic report generation are available. We are delighted with the success of the cooperation of all the parties who worked on the project and anticipate many informative analyses.
We are very pleased to have gained the University Claude Bernard of Lyon and the University of Bourgogne as new customers and look forward to successful cooperation with these highly regarded universities.
