OXFORD, UKMotion capture technology provider Vocon has launched Valkyrie, its new flagship camera range, featuring four models designed to deliver the world’s highest quality performance in motion capture systems.
Designed to work in harmony with Vicon’s powerful software solutions for the life sciences, visual effects, location-based virtual reality and engineering industries, Vocon bills Valkyrie as a best-of-breed ecosystem for motion capture users.
The range includes a 26-megapixel (MP) model and a high-speed shooting mode up to 2,000 frames per second (FPS).
Vocon also reported that Valkyrie-compatible systems will power motion capture projects with robust data without the need for further processing or “cleaning.” The improved self-healing and calibration allow Vicon’s customers to focus on their work rather than the technology.
Valkyrie empowers filmmakers and game designers to create increasingly realistic and immersive experiences.
The full Valkyrie range includes:
- VK26 – the flagship model capable of covering the largest volumes in incredible detail with its 26MP and native 150FPS, ideal for demanding applications such as virtual production and in-camera VFX
- VK16 – offers the highest frame rate per megapixel, at 16 MP with a native 300FPS, designed to support complex biomechanical modeling and engineering use cases
- VK8 – offers both the highest native frame rate at 500FPS and the best cost per megapixel at 8MP, enabling the fastest moving athletes and objects (football, baseball, etc.)
- VK-X – supports the most compelling and responsive VR experiences and applications using active markers
