Oxford, UK — Vicon has signed an agreement to become the main motion capture (mocap) technology supplier to The Imaginarium — a London-based studio, co-founded by actor/director Andy Serkis and film producer Jonathan Cavendish. The studio offers performance capture consultancy and production services to film studios, television and video game companies, as well as developing its own work.
Academy awardÂ®-winning company, Vicon is supplying 80 of its most advanced T160 motion capture cameras and new Blade software. The Imaginarium is also participating in an alpha project to provide input on Vicon’s next major entertainment software release, due to be announced later this year.
The 16 megapixel cameras and latest software will enable The Imaginarium to deliver high quality data which, combined with the Studio’s unique creative direction, will make it one of the world’s leading performance capture studios.
