Just days after the Tobii TX300 was launched SMI counters with the introduction of the the worlds first 500Hz remote binocular eye tracker. SMI seriously ramps up the competition in the high speed remote systems, surpassing the Tobii TX by a hefty 200Hz. The RED500 has a operating distance of 60-80cm with a 40x40 trackbox at 70cm with a reported accuracy of <0.4 degrees under typical (optimal?) settings. Real-world performance evaluation by independent third party remains to be seen. Not resting on their laurels SMI regains the king-of-the-hill position with an impressive achievement that demonstrates how competitive the field has become. See the technical specs for more information.
