Gothenburg, Sweden, June 8, 2020 – Leading motion capture provider, Qualisys, headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, announces the launch of its newest motion analysis camera platform that will shock its competitors – the Arqus. Alluding to, Argus, the Greek god of 100 eyes, the Arqus camera directly reflects the all-seeing nature of the centuries old story.

With industry-leading specs, and unmatched resolution, the all-weather Arqus was carefully designed with the user in mind. Built to be natively waterproof and dustproof, the Arqus protective housing provides excellent portability, sporting an integrated quick-release plate in addition to the standard ¼" tripod mounts

Couple this with a wide array of compatible lenses, a 50% more powerful strobe, OLED display, and embedded active filtering technology, the Arqus platform will always operate where and when you need it to.

The Arqus provides unprecedented accuracy and detail, equipped with a brand new 26 MP full-FOV sensor – an astronomical leap, which surpasses the resolution of any other motion capture camera in the market by 10MP or more. This capability, along with advanced marker detection algorithms, allows for in-depth analyses and insights that would go unnoticed in other mocap cameras; such as the ability to distinguish small markers even in bright sunshine.

The new camera utilizes the same unique daisy-chaining capability as its predecessor, the Miqus, which means significantly fewer cables to worry about. As an example, a 24-camera system from Qualisys results in nearly 80% less cabling than other systems. In terms of portability – you won’t want anything else. For permanent installation – cable clutter is not something you see in Qualisys motion capture labs and studios.

Simply put, the Arqus motion capture camera provides easy to use operation, all-weather capabilities, and sports a collection of industry-leading specifications that makes it the highest-performing piece of motion capture equipment available on the market today.


“When we set out to create the Arqus, one thing was clear, we wanted to make the best camera on the market and I’m happy to say that’s something we did.”
