Xsens Redesigns Its Mocap Product Line

ENSCHEDE, THE NETHERLANDS    Xsens ,   an innovator in 3D inertial motion tracking technology, has introduced a new wearable motion-capture product line to deliver fast, production-ready 3D data to professional animators at a more affordable price.  

Featuring two fully redesigned systems and a 4.0 version of its software, the new Xsens MVN product line brings faster setups, cleaner data, and tougher materials designed for daily use in demanding production environments. With customers actively engaging in the product design process, the updated Xsens MVN line brings accessibility and high-quality performance to a production-ready workflow.

MVN Link: Xsens’ full-body , camera-less mocap suit has been rebuilt to handle more strenuous conditions. Kevlar reinforced wires, ultra-small and lightweight trackers, fast on-body data buffering, and a battery life of 9.5 hours round out a robust design that is ready for any on-set production. 

MVN Awinda: Xsens’ strap-based system is ideal for animators who want to capture motions on the fly. Individual wireless motion trackers are attached to straps that can be quickly snapped on over clothes or easily exchanged among actors to recording for up to 6.5 hours. 

MVN Studio 4.0: Xsens’ widely used software package featuring patented 3D motion tracking technologies. Thanks to a massive update to Xsens’ mocap engine, it now tracks height in real-time and delivers exceptionally clean data. 

The MVN Studio pipeline integration has also been greatly expanded to solidify its mocap data in VFX and animation workflows. Now MVN Studio is even more accessible to industry-standard software pipelines such as Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, MotionBuilder, Houdini, UDK and Unity3D.

Users can start working with Xsens MVN beginning at $12,000.
