Stage 1 is 150 feet by 70 feet with a 25-foot ceiling and is designed for large-scale, high-character count, realtime capture. The stage is set up to provide a 45-foot by 35-foot capture volume and can be expanded beyond 100 feet by 50 feet for even larger volume motion capture. Stage 2 is the same size and is designed to record audio during capture sessions.
In addition to the Vicon and House of Moves motion capture production services team, Vicon product developers and engineers are also on site, providing access to the latest technology from the company.
“Motion capture is becoming a huge integral part of today’s movies, game titles and commercials, all of which are demanding multiple actor, realtime pre-visualization and complete performance capture,” says Gary Roberts, VP of production for the Vicon feature unit and House of Moves. “Customers and prospects at the new studio will reap the benefits of a facility where manufacturing, development and production are steps away from each other.”
The building offers an array of customer-focused amenities. And those considering purchasing a Vicon system can evaluate it in a real-world, working environment.
“Potential customers will have the chance to capture data in a production environment and talk to production and development staff to better understand how Vicon solves their own production challenges,” explains Jon Damush, VP/GM of Vicon’s entertainment division. “We are also able to offer our customers the ability to use our stage when their own capacity is exceeded.”
