HitTrax Home, which utilizes the same core computer vision technology that powers the professional HitTrax model used by MLB organizations, is now available for private and residential users, according to the device’s developer, InMotion Systems.
HitTrax batting cage simulators have been rolled out to many Dick’s locations in recent years.
In a statement, InMotion Systems said the HitTrax Home offers an intuitive user-interface that allows the private user to collect advanced hitting metrics and video analysis in real-time via a touch-screen interface. The system also provides the millisecond response time and HD rendering capabilities required to enjoy the patented HitTrax entertainment applications (e.g. HR Challenge, SMASHBall). Players can also participate in online tournaments directly from their home courtesy of the HitTrax Home remote gaming services.
“While HitTrax has been enjoyed by players of all levels through the years, we are particularly excited to launch this new, lower-priced platform for our private users,” states Founder and CEO Mike Donfrancesco. “Due to the pandemic, we’ve seen a considerable increase in requests from the home market and this solution will fill that need. We’re thrilled that we are now able to deliver the same technology used by the professionals directly into the player’s home.”
The HitTrax Home platform will be used as a launching pad for eSport style tournaments, as well as additional services that include guided instruction from professional hitting instructors across the country. These services will be introduced in the coming months. Pricing for the main HitTrax Home platform, including a touch screen computer, starts below $10,000. Custom configurations are also available.
HitTrax systems are deployed worldwide at baseball/softball training facilities, MLB player development centers, college & high school programs, LBE (location-based entertainment) venues, and retail locations.
