Introducing the first in a line of designer cams for head tracking to give your simpit a truly unique look, and provide the best possible tracking performance available on the market when paired with the high performance IRTrackStar led clip, and Opentrack software, for a complete head tracking package. The IRCam Deco will be followed by the IRCam Modern, IRCam Flight, and IRCam Cosmo. These cams will be released later in 24'. 

 

Overview

The IRCam Deco utilizes a brushed aluminum face plate design with CNC milled etchings, and a sleak teardrop body optionally painted in a glossy clear coat of polyurethane, the IRCam Deco is by far the most unique and design centric cam available for head tracking. Designed to stand apart from the ordinary and to compliment your simpit, the IRCam Deco is also durable and adaptable.

 

The IRCam Deco is now available for orders, and supplies are limited. Please expect extended lead times between 3 to 6 weeks during the initial months after release. I will try to keep the expected lead times updated and as accurate as possible, but please understand that delays may occur due to the lengthy lead times on the materials. If you have any questions, or just want an update at any point during the order process, please feel free to contact me any time using the chat button at the bottom right of the page. If I don't immediately respond, you'll receive an email as soon as I do as long as you provided your email in the chat window. 

 

The IRCam Deco utilizes a 120hz cam with the powerful OV9281 sensor, a 6ft hardwired and braided USB cable (custom lengths available upon request), 1/4 20 UNC standard cam mounting nut mounted to a bespoke R&JSimTech mounting system, and a standard M12 style lens (1/4" sensor).

 

Performance

The 120hz cam is capable of providing approximately 100fps depending on your system specs. While the cam is rated at 120 fps, I have yet to see it achieve those speeds. It does vary based on system performance, but should fall in the 70-100fps range. (limitation of windows drivers and Opentrack software) Which is more than enough for ultra smooth tracking. Please refer to the IRCam Guide for instructions on setting up the cam and Opentrack properly. 

 

Mounting options 

The included custom mount is designed to adjust 40° in pitch and 20° in yaw movement. (angles beyond this are not ideally suited to head tracking) It's adaptable to a wide range of screen shapes with 4 adjustment points, tightened using knurled thumb screws. The mount is CNC milled from aluminum with black resin forming components, and is designed to be as adaptable as possible. Should your screen configuration have any compatability issues with the profile of the resting points on the cams front arms, take photos and measurements and I will send a custom lower portion of the mount arms with the modified profile for only the cost of shipping. 

There is a wide variety of 1/4 20 UNC webcam mounts available from various manufacturers that will work with the IRCam Deco. So if the included mounting system doesn't work with your setup, you can also source a custom mount to tailor it to your needs. The cam will also mount to anything that has a 1/4" bolt hole available to bolt it to. 

 

Lenses

There are 2 options for lenses available. The 58° FoV lens is ideal for seating positions where the leds of the head tracker are less than 45" in distance to the cam lens. For seating positions 45" or farther from the cam lens, the 40° FoV is the ideal choice. The lenses are interchangeable, so should your desktop or cockpit configuration change you can contact me to place an order for the appropriate lens. I can also provide links to purchase them on Amazon as well. 

 

Coating

You also have the option of adding a polyurethane coating which gives the body a deep, high gloss finish. The plastic body is sanded before application of the poly which results in a black painted appearance. This coating is very durable and will help protect your investment in addition to looking fantastic. 

 

Painting

The body and front face shroud get two primer coats, three coats of metallic paint, airbrushed to provide a smooth even coating, followed by two coats of polyurethane for a thick, glossy, durable finish. The primary colors available are light gold metallic, copper metallic, bronze metallic, metallic red, metallic blue, metallic purple, and sterling silver. Photos of a couple colors are available above. I can paint them virtually any color, but there may be an additional charge for colors not listed here. 

If you select the painted option, please contact me using the chat button at the bottom right of the page and let me know what color you would like so that I may make a note on your order. 

 

Bundle

If you're looking for a complete tracking package, be sure to bundle you're new IRCam Deco with the IRTrackStar for the highest performing tracking package on the market. 

 

Compatibility

The IRCam Deco is designed to function in a package with the IRTrackStar and the free to download Opentrack software. This is the best performing combination of head tracking hardware and software currently available, full stop. This package provides lower latency and a wider tracking range than Tobii. A wider tracking range and more precision than TrackIR. It's more durable than all the options out there, and the most thoughtfully and creatively engineered hardware available for head tracking. 

Please note that the IRCam Deco is NOT compatible with Trackir software. While you may use any led clip, even the one that comes with TrackIR, I highly recommend the IRTrackStar to provide the best possible tracking performance. 

Alternatively, you may also utilize Opentrack's face tracking algorithm by simply removing the infrared cap from the IRCam Deco. While this doesn't provide the tracking performance of infrared tracking, it is a budget friendly way to step into head tracking by using the cam by itself, and adding an IRTrackStar later.

 

Cancelations

Due to the cost of the materials of these cams, and their bespoke, low volume, built-to-order nature, cancelations are not allowed on the IRCam Deco. Please only place an order if you're sure you want it.

You gotta get this

If this was only the mount you should buy it. This is a brilliant design from a usability perspective as well as a great visual addition to your simpit. The mount is solid. Once you set it up it is going nowhere. The cam is great. Easy to focus and very fast response time and resolution. Works great on a Mac as well as a PC. The support is amazing never a long wait. Soon this site will have extensive instructions for setting up the Open Source software. I have the headtracker and the cam and man what an improvement from the previous equipment I was using.
