OXFORD, UK — Motion capture technology specialist Vicon (www.vicon.com) has launched two new cameras — Vero and Vue — which join the company’s flagship camera, Vantage, to form a new product family.
Vero is an optical high-resolution camera range that is powerful and flexibility, while also cost effective. Based on the company’s Vantage technology, Vero is well suited for a range of applications. The camera features on-board sensors that continuously monitor performance, camera position and temperature, enabling the system operator to ensure optimal performance at all times.
The Vero range includes a custom-made variable focus lens that delivers an optimized field of view, as well as a 2.2 megapixel camera. The system is well suited for capturing fast sport movements and multiple actors or objects with very 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.
Vue is a full high definition synchronized video camera that provides clear and precise video footage in the mocap volume. In addition to incorporating the sharpest video image into the motion capture volume, Vue also enables seamless calibration between optical and video volumes, ensuring the optical and video views are perfectly aligned to capture the finest of details.
“The launch of Vero and Vue continues our ongoing commitment to delivering flexible yet powerful solutions to the motion capture community,” says Imogen Moorhouse, CEO, Vicon. “The intuitive Vero system delivers more pixels for its price, making Vicon high-quality motion capture more efficient and cost effective.”
