Use with recoil laser devices:
The LASR Classic Advanced Camera is capable of a very high framerate (320x240 @200FPS) which is required to reliably and accurately detect impacts from recoil devices. This is due to the mechanical movement of the device, which causes extremely fast mechanical movement of the laser, which in turn causes normal 30FPS webcams to not be able to reliably and accurately detect those impacts.
When used in high framerate mode, the LASR software will automatically provide a framerate testing tool (to ensure your computer is keeping up), modify shot detection, and modify various background functions in order to ensure the best performance with the high framerate.
The LASR Classic Advanced Camera ensures compatibility with ANY recoil laser training device, including those with infrared lasers. We offer some recoil laser training devices in our online shop, which are based on modified airsoft devices, but this will also work with other recoil devices such as Dvorak and Coolfire.
"Need to know" for recoil users:
(None of the following applies for anything other than recoil devices)
The minimum system requirements are increased when using recoil devices:
Minimum CPU: 1.8 GHZ dual-core hyperthreaded or better
Minimum RAM: 4 GB or more
Recommended CPU: Full quad-core 2.0 GHz processor or better
CPUs with a TDP of 15W or lower are not recommended. A discrete GPU can improve performance in some cases.
If you are not sure your computer can meet these requirements, we do have a 30 day return policy if it does not work for you.
We have also found that, due to the mechanical movement of recoil devices, typical maximum distance for camera to target is 5 feet, and maximum shooter to target distance is 15 feet. These are general recommendations, regardless of what target solution you use with recoil devices (not specific to LASR), but may vary depending on the specific recoil device. The shooter can still move around, use cover, etc.
We also recommend using the reduced size targets we offer in our online shop, or something similar, with recoil devices, for both training value (distance limitations above), and reliability of shot detection. A tripod is also recommended, as shot detection is more sensitive when in the high framerate mode.
