The GC2 launch monitors use a couple of stereoscopic cameras that are capable of capturing the movement of a ball at 10,000 FPS. This much speed is more than enough to analyze the ball’s launch angle, speed, the direction of spin to simulate the accurate distance the ball travelled. The launch monitor needs no calibration, no marked balls, and can be set in minutes.
