COPENHAGEN, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trackman, which revolutionized the game of golf with its patented optically enhanced radar tracking (OERT) technology, announced today the arrival of Trackman iO — the company’s first purpose-built product for indoor golf.
The new Trackman iO enters a powerful product lineup next to the iconic Trackman 4 and reinforces Trackman’s position as the market leader in indoor golf. The largest indoor golf chains, leading golf retailers and top golf clubs — along with thousands of private owners — have already invested in Trackman 4 simulator solutions. Now Trackman iO opens the door for even more players to experience the unique thrills and challenges of indoor golf powered by Trackman.
“When we started Trackman 20 years ago, I never imagined golf simulators would become a cornerstone of our business,” said Trackman co-founder and CEO Klaus Eldrup-Jørgensen. “For so long indoor golf was gimmicky and far away from the real game. But our team has changed that perception in a big way, and with Trackman iO we are taking the next step in an exciting journey.”
Trackman iO combines radar and high-speed infrared imaging to capture the full range of ball data and select club data, without the need for extra lighting. While Trackman 4 is positioned at ground level, Trackman iO is mounted above the hitting area. This means there are no minimum space requirements in front of or behind the ball. All you need is enough room to swing the club.
“We didn’t develop Trackman iO to replace the Trackman 4,” said Fredrik Tuxen, Trackman inventor and CTO. “We developed Trackman iO to be the best possible product for indoor golf. To create the most enjoyable and hassle-free indoor golf experience. To precisely replicate the results you would get outside — all in a compact, elegant device. And we believe that is exactly what we have done.”
Added Tuxen: “Both Trackman 4 and Trackman iO are truly great indoor golf tracking engines. If your main focus is practice, player development and fitting, or you enjoy the versatility of both indoor and outdoor use, Trackman 4 will typically be the go-to product. If your focus is on playing virtual golf and entertainment games at home, Trackman iO might end up as the more likely choice.”
The Trackman iO Home bundle, which includes 30 virtual golf courses, three top games and access to the full range of Trackman quality ball data, starts at $13,995 (USD). Home Complete and Commercial bundles, which include 300+ virtual courses, all games, all ball data and select club data, start at $21,495. The Commercial package also includes access to business management tools at no extra charge.
“Our products are the best in the market, and the best comes at a premium,” Eldrup-Jørgensen said. “With Trackman iO, we are thrilled to make Trackman simulators more affordable for home owners and invite more golfers to experience the best way to play indoors.”
