High-speed video is displayed live and automatically captured from multiple views. A 1012-point pressure and balance mat displays and captures the pressure in your feet, the width of your stance, and the center of your mass completely synchronized throughout the swing with the high-speed video. The data from the latest Doppler radar launch monitors is fully integrated in the Nicklaus Academies Analysis Software with the above visual tools to deliver a seamless display all the information necessary to assess and adjust one's swing.
A MotionGolf 3-D Imaging Studio provides the ultimate in analysis. 6 high-speed camera / computers capture 31 reflectors placed on the student and the control club - and convert this information into a fully animated, 3-dimentional figure. The animated figure can now be rotated to see any view imaginable. Angles and percentages can be instantly displayed to provide a perspective of the golf swing never before imagined. The MotionGolf 3-D Imaging Studio is the only one in Nevada and the surrounding states including Arizona, California, New Mexico and Utah.
