Thanks to the NaturalPoint Track IR 5, you will experience 3D on a flat screen, allowing for full immersion in the game. Where the Track IR 4 already was an advanced piece of technology, the Track IR 5 takes it a step further. Thanks to a wider field of view of 51.7??, a frequency of 120 frames per second and a response time of only nine milliseconds, you can look around your game or simulation smoothly without noticeable delay. The Track IR has six degrees of motion freedom (6DOF), which are: the X, Y and Z axes, and pitch, roll and yaw. With the Track IR, NaturalPoint creates a 3D experience on a flat screen, giving meaning to their catchphrase: 'Put your head in the game'.
With the help of reflected infrared light in the vector clip (provided as standard) on the front of a baseball cap, or the track clip pro (sold separately) on the front of your headset, the Track IR determines the position of your head. When your head position changes (e.g. by looking up), you will look around your game or simulation within the confines of the Track IR 5 (and of course your computer screen). You will never have to guess when to turn to end up right on the centre line, because you can simply look and see for yourself.
Using the powerful (downloadable) software, you can set up the TrackIR 5 exactly as you want. The sensitivity and speed of each axis is individually adjustable: linear or exponential. You can, of course, also use the standard profiles that are being installed.
The TrackIR 5 is not only suitable for flight simulators, but also for shooters, racing games and other simulation games such as Farming Simulator, Truck Simulator or OMSI Bus Simulator. Currently, more than 200 games are officially supported and this number continues to increase.
