Vicon teams up with TEC


Motion capture technology specialist Vicon has entered into a partnership with the Technicolor Experience Center (TEC) in Los Angeles.

While Vicon develops motion capture (mocap) products and services for the entertainment, engineering, virtual reality and life science industries, the TEC has invested in 28 Vicon Vantage cameras, which will allow it to continue to develop content, platforms and technology for virtual reality, augmented reality and other evolving media applications.

“Vicon has a critically important role to play as part of the TEC community,” said Marcie Jastrow, SVP of Immersive Media at Technicolor and Head of the Technicolor Experience Center.

“Vicon is a leader in motion capture technology that ensures storytellers deliver experiences of the highest quality and artistic intent. Our partnership with Vicon represents another step in the continuum of the TEC’s vision to create the future of immersive experiences through collaboration with best-in-breed innovators,” he added.

As immersive experiences continue to evolve, so do the technologies that help shape the stories they tell. Vicon mocap technology is designed with today’s needs and tomorrow’s desires in mind to enable facilities like TEC to deliver stories in new and more immersive ways.

Intelligently designed to work cohesively with all aspects of animation and film production, Vicon Vantage offers TEC the most powerful processing algorithms and electronics, combined with industry-leading tracking and data fidelity.

Vantage continuously monitors its performance with a host of sensors that allow technicians visual feedback through the on-board camera display, in the software, and on Vicon’s Control app.
