Falcon Eye low cost high speed usb 2.0 camera

Falcon Eye - low cost high speed camera is research project created by members and associate members of professional association Sport diagnostic center Sabac. Idea was to create affordable low cost camera for students of sport and physical education science in order to capture/record slow and fast sport movements. Nowadays it is modern, usb 2.0, tripod mount, manual lens, high speed (60fps and 100fps) and easy use and transport camera.

Background - Project unofficially started at 2012 when members started to use Kinovea (1) - open source software for capturing and analysis of human movement in sport. There was several issues as fast sport movements and marker tracking not possible to do with 30fps web cameras, solving them and knowing there is no budget for purchase of high-end industrial high speed cameras, there was one solution, to make own product.

Falcon Eye – technical specification - Vision technology based on OmniVision video sensor, model OV2710, which provide 2.0MP at supported image formats: MJPEG and YUV2(YUYU). Free drive video protocol: usb video class UVC, it has automatic control for exposure, white balance and gain, and manual settings for: brightness, contrast, color saturation, tone definition, gamma, white balance, backlight, sharpness, contrast and exposure. Supported recording resolution are: 320X240@100fps, 352X288@100fps, 640X480@100fps, 800X600@60fps, 1024X768@30fps, 1280X720@60fps, 1280X1024@30fps and 1920X1080@30fps. Casing: black anodized aluminum, 56x56x34mm (HxWxD) without the lens Weight: 205g camera without the lens, 55g lens – 260g complete Lens specification: CS mount, focal length 2.8 ~ 12mm, aperture F1.4, manual settings: iris, zoom and focus. Operating conditions: -20 +60 . ℃ Connection: USB 2.0 female port positioned on rear camera side. Compatible: with Kinovea (open source and free sport video analysis tool www.kinovea.org) Start package include: two usb 2.0 high speed cables (starter usb 2.0 cable 1.8m male-male usb connector, extension usb 2.0 cable 3m male-female usb connector), lens, lens cap and transport bag.
Camera spocial features: manual CS lens, tripod mount on the camera top and bottom, robust black anodized casing and usb 2.0 female port
Members - Milan Djupovac, project leader passionated with sport measuring devices created project and gather all team members together, most time doing communication and project management. Jelena Stosic, master degree in sport science, motivating and pushing project with her knowledge from biomechanics and motor control. Ivan Misic and Zivan Milosevic, colleagues who was incharged for all camera tests in real conditions, tons of videos done in all project phases. Zoran Jevtic, gave a lot impact in product creation, with his basic knowledge in electronics and mechanics, was involved in camera casing design, signal transport, mechanical test after production and other technical issues. All members are faculty deegre in sport and physical education science. Associate members - Without of them project would never see day light, five of them gave their best knowledge to support project development. Joan Charmant​, Kinovea project leader, open source software for human motion capturing and analysis, advising members about technical details, giving camera module review ​and providing other technical details played important role in camera development. Zoran Dobrin, faculty degree in electronics, worked on various technical details, especially on signal transfer, development and production of pcb port module, camera casing design and more preproduction and posproduction activities.​ Miro Rabrenovic​, faculty degree mechanical engineer, done his work in design, development and production of camera casing, there was 5 predesigns and 3 prototypes of camera casing before final version.​ Marko Gavrilovic, architect​, put final touches in project, project graphic design charmed all members with half-falcon eye graphic and Adamant BG font style.

Falcon Eye camera is compatible with following software (please check software required configuration): APAS - Ariel Performance Analysis System 14.1.5 (older versions not tested), Dartfish 9.2 (older versions not tested), Kinovea 0.8.25 (older versions not tested)...

"Very good camera for biomechanical analysis of movement characteristics. Those video records, using the Falcon Eye high-speed camera, are compatible with many programs for kinematics analysis of movements, such as Dartfish, AMTI, APAS and others. I am pleased to recommend Falcon Eye camera for everyone involved in biomechanical video analysis of human movement, whether professional or amateur." Ratko Stankovic, professor of biomechanics at Faculty of sport and physical education in Nis, Serbia.
''The Falcon Eye presents a promissing alternative to expencive high speed cameras. Additonal development and validation should further improve usability of the Cameras in the 3D Kinematrographic analysis.'' Dragan Mirkov, Professor at University of Belgrade, Faculty of Sport and Physical Education
''The Falcon Eye is a great camera already proving it's value in motion analysis in sports. The camera works great with freeware making it a very inexpensive and accessible setup for private practices (physio, osteo, etc.) as well as for personal trainers and sportclubs.'' Maarten Gijssel, Clinical Health Scientist/ MSPT
