Vicon Launches Two New Cameras to Boost the Flexibility of Motion Capture
Oxford, UK – 1 June 2016 - Vicon, the motion capture technology specialist for the entertainment, engineering and life science industries, today announced the launch of two new cameras, Vero and Vue. The new cameras will join Vicon’s flagship camera, Vantage, to form a new product family. Vero is an optical high-resolution camera range, offering a new level of power, performance, flexibility and value for money in the motion capture market. Vue is the industry’s first full High Definition synchronised video camera, providing clear and precise video footage in the mocap volume.
Based on the industry-leading technology of Vicon’s flagship camera platform Vantage, Vero provides an affordable system suited to a wide range of applications. From robotics to visual effects, the need for up-to-the-minute information during motion capture shoots has never been greater. To meet this need, Vero features on-board sensors that continuously monitor performance, camera position and temperature, enabling the system operator to ensure optimal performance at all times.
The Vero range includes a custom-made variable focus lens that delivers an optimised field of view, as well as an industry-leading 2.2 megapixel camera. The highly efficient and flexible system makes it ideal for capturing fast sport movements and multiple actors or objects with very low latency. The range also includes a powerful 1.3 megapixel camera, and delivers resolution and speed at an unrivalled price point. Vero is compatible with existing Vicon T-series, Bonita and Vantage cameras as well as Vicon’s Control app, which allows users to calibrate the system and make adjustments on the fly.
With full High Definition resolution, Vicon Vue incorporates the sharpest video image into the motion capture volume. It also enables seamless calibration between optical and video volumes, ensuring the optical and video views are perfectly aligned to capture the finest of details.
“The launch of Vero and Vue continues our ongoing commitment to delivering flexible yet powerful solutions to the motion capture community,” said Imogen Moorhouse, CEO, Vicon. “The intuitive Vero system delivers more pixels for its price, making Vicon high-quality motion capture more efficient and cost effective.”
