What is better - Photometric or Doppler technology?Updated 2 years ago

Launch monitors can be split into two categories; photometric and doppler radar. Photometric launch monitors, such as the Skytrak, use photographic based technology to track the ball for a short distance (1-2m) then calculates the rest of the shot using complicated but highly accurate algorithms. Photometric based launch monitors are great for indoor setups with limited space. Doppler radar launch monitors such as FlightScope Mevo+ use radar technology, similar to those used on aircraft, to track the ball for longer distances. Radar launch monitors are great for indoor & outdoor setups, but require a little more space to operate.
