Pixomondo to deploy Vicon solution for virtual production stages

The VFX giant’s partnership with Vicon reflects its ambitious expansion plans in the virtual production space

Oxford, UK – 12 May 2022 – Vicon, a world leader in motion measurement, has been awarded multiple contracts by virtual production, visualisation, and visual effects company Pixomondo to power its award-winning virtual production solutions.

Oscar and Emmy-winning Pixomondo, has studios throughout North America and Europe, with three proprietary LED stages for virtual production located in Toronto and Vancouver, with plans for European stages. The virtual production stages will house a powerful combination of 105 Vicon Viper X and 20 Vero cameras plus Shōgun software, enabling high precision live camera tracking and in-camera visual effects.

Virtual production techniques including camera tracking for in-camera visual effects (ICVFX), allow Directors, Production Designers and VFX Supervisors to view their projects live on-set to quickly react and make changes as needed, rather than having to wait until post-production.

Josh Kerekes, Director of Virtual Production at Pixomondo, said: “We were pleased to find a motion capture company that focuses on camera tracking, which is very important for Pixomondo’s Virtual Production stages. It was impressive to see how Vicon’s software and roadmaps were geared toward virtual production and could be custom-tailored to suit our needs. Vicon is very forward-thinking with software and hardware -- particularly the thorough documentation and intuitive calibration process -- which has enabled the Pixomondo team to easily configure entire systems within 48hours of unboxing.”

Jeffrey Ovadya, Director of Sales at Vicon, said: “Virtual production is providing a new realm of possibilities for those in the TV and film production space, with the real-time animation capture that it affords pushing filmmaking to the next level. It is a tremendous endorsement of our technology that we have been trusted by Pixomondo to support their impressive virtual production capabilities, and we look forward to working with them in bringing the world’s biggest productions to life”.
