Vicon, which makes precision motion tracking systems and match-moving software, will be at SIGGRAPH this year showing its two new camera families, Vero and Vue. The new offerings join Vicon’s flagship camera, Vantage.
Vero is a range of high-def, synchronized optical video cameras for providing realtime video footage and 3D overlay in motion capture. Designed as an economical system for many types of applications, the Vero range includes a custom 6-12 mm variable focus lens that delivers an optimized field of view, as well as 2.2 megapixel resolution at 330Hz.
With these features, users can capture fast sport movements and multiple actors, drones or robots with low latency. The range also includes a 1.3 megapixel camera. 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 HD resolution and variable focal lengths, the Vicon Vue camera incorporates a sharp video image into the motion capture volume. It also enables seamless calibration between optical and video volumes, ensuring the optical and video views are aligned to capture fine details.
