Vicon, a world leader in motion capture, today announced a new contract to deploy its cutting-edge Vantage cameras and software for virtual production. Together and working with leading visual effects company DNEG, Dimension will leverage its volumetric and real-time development capabilities and Vicon’s tracking of both rigid object and fully body subjects for several high-profile virtual production projects, including a major motion picture and a 10-hour TV series.
Vicon is equipping Dimension with 44 Vicon Vantage 16 cameras and 12 Vicon Vantage 5 cameras, as well as Vicon’s Shōgun software, and we will enable production to turn our creative visions into reality by offering our ground-breaking virtual production capabilities including in-camera VFX (ICVFX) and Simulcam.
Steve Jelley, joint managing director, Dimension, comments: “We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best possible virtual production experiences across virtual art and on-set services, and in particular managing and operating complex technology stacks to display high quality real-time virtual scenes on LED walls or successfully integrating solutions such as Simulcam into film production.
"Our work requires the right motion capture technology. It must not only deliver the highest accuracy and performance, but also provide a diverse range of capabilities across the whole virtual production pipeline, including ICVFX and Simulcam. With extensive experience in VFX and motion capture technology, Vicon’s industry-leading solutions enable us to support partners like DNEG in pushing the boundaries of entertainment and bringing their creative ideas to life.”
