The Company

Pioneering markerless motion capture technology.

KinaTrax, Inc. brings next generation markerless motion capture technology out of the academic arena and into the real world. Professional baseball offers the right mix of environment and opportunity to foster this incredible mission. We now have systems operating in several Major League Baseball ballparks.

We’ve also partnered with C-Motion, Inc. Together, we will deliver complex and comprehensive biomechanics analyses of data through its Visual3D software platform. As technologies evolve, we will push the boundaries of motion capture capabilities.

Kevin Pesenecker, Field Service Engineer

Kevin grew up in Vermont and Rhode Island. He started out in his career working for an offset printing company, and after working in the darkroom making printing plates for a while he helped install and operate their first digital direct to negative imaging system. Kevin worked with multiple companies installing and maintaining photographic imaging systems for almost five years until they became obsolete. He found himself in Crestone Colorado where he has called home for the last 17 years. There, he worked developing websites and learning about network technologies and then helped found an internet service provider that grew into Colorado Central Telecom serving over 4800 customers. For the majority of the last 11 years, Kevin has served as a network administrator, field service engineer, and all-around fix-it guy for the 100+ location network covering an area the size of the state of New Jersey in Southern Colorado.

Corey Schwait, Field Service Engineer

Corey manages the planning and coordination of the KinaTrax motion capture system installations at stadiums.

Corey holds a BS in Management Information Systems with a concentration in Information Technology from Florida Atlantic University. He has several years of experience managing onsite installation of camera systems, access control systems, and network infrastructure as well as server administration, hosted VOIP solutions, network administration, and enterprise wireless networking.
