The webcam, which takes up to 30 frames a second, makes it possible to film the athletes while they are doing tests. The images, automatically synchronized with the numerical data and graphics, will be saved in the database and will always be available for analysis or comparison. Optojump supports up to two Webcams and the software supports only particular brands and models supplied by us (as the hardware and drivers must have particular features).
The difference is in the physical distance between the LEDs that make up Optojump’s optics. The one-meter bars contain 33 LEDs in the “3 cm” version and 96 in the “1 cm” version. This determines the resolution of the system (and for example the margin of error in the calculation of the length of a step). From this it can be deduced that the “1 cm” system has a precision three times greater than than the “3 cm” system.
A "normal" desktop or notebook with Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Vista SP2 or Windows 7 OS is usually enough to run Optojump Next software without problems. Please run Windows Update before the software setup.
Minumum and suggested requirements are:
Microsoft XP SP3
Vista/7 (32 o 64 bit)
(512 Mb or higher)
(OptoJump + 2 webcams)
You can even run the software on less powerful PCs (like netbooks) with some limitations: you don't see real-time video from webcam but you can save and see later the movie.
Optojump Next need Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (automatically installed from our setup if not found on the pc)
Optojump Next software was developed on Windows Systems with the Microsoft .Net Framework. There is no native version for Apple OSX
It is possible to run Microsoft Windows in native mode (boot camp) or in virtualized environments (Vmware, Parallels, etc.) on modern Apple computers. Therefore, the answer is YES.
We have done some tests with OptoJump Next Software on a Apple Mac Book Pro (2011 machine with i7, 8Gb Ram, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8).
The software runs very smoothly and without problems with a virtual machine hosted inside VMware Fusion 3.1.4 (Windows 7 Pro 64bit 1 core, 1.5GB di RAM).
We tested only 1 webcam (Logitech C920) instead of two, due the lack of third Usb port.
