We recommend to connect the Quantum Mocap Metagloves wired to the Bodypack for the best possible data. The gloves can also be used wireless by connecting the Metagloves wireless dongle to the Bodypack.

You can use your Quantum dongle on the external computer you use to remotely control and record with the Bodypack.

Timecode & Sync

Connect a timecode generator and USB audio interface, and configure timecode and sync on the Bodypack.

Wearing & Mounting

The back of the Bodypack is lined with velcro (hook) and can be attached to any velcro (loop) surface.

The optional MANUS Bodypack Belt comes with a dedicated velcro (loop) patch to attach the Bodypack to. The Bodypack Belt also features a power bank pouch and elastic bands for timecode equipment.

When using the Bodypack Belt on top of a velcro (loop) motion capture suit, the velcro (hook) strips on the inside of the Bodypack Belt can be connected to the suit for optimal wearing comfort.

We recommend routing the USB cables for the gloves through the mocap suit or by using velcro on the outside of the suit to secure the cables.

When using the Bodypack without the Bodypack Belt, make sure the Bodypack can ventilate itself properly and the antennas are not obscured.


Configure the Bodypack to connect to your Wi-Fi network to enable remote control and remote recording.
