MADRIX 5 Script

 

 

Introduction

BlackTrax by CAST Software is a real-time, vision-based tracking system. The data it provides can be used in MADRIX 5.

Currently, you need to use MADRIX 5 Script in order to let both systems, MADRIX 5 and BlackTrax, work together.
MADRIX 5 is using the real-time tracking protocol for the integration in order to receive positional data (RTTrPM).

BlackTrax requires a corresponding hardware system, which needs to be configured and fully operational. Alternatively, a software simulator is available.

Troubleshooting

The recommended minimum version is 2.4.2.
Please use the BigEndian setting when using BlackTrax in version 2.4.2 or lower.
When you think that the X-axis and the Y-axis are reversed, you may choose which coordinate system to use in your tracking adapter:
- Stage (left-hand coordinate system) or
- Screen (right-hand coordinate system) [which is recommended].
BlackTrax currently supports up to 85 beacons or 255 tracking points.
