Vicon’s latest flagship Valkyrie solution and proven Shōgun software to power Croatian motion capture studio

17 May 2023 - Oxford Metrics plc (LSE: OMG), the smart sensing software company servicing life sciences, entertainment, and engineering markets, is pleased to announce that Vicon, a world leader in motion measurement, has won a contract with Digital Kinetics, to deploy Vicon’s world-leading Valkyrie solution in combination with Vicon’s proven Shōgun software platform.

Based in Zagreb, Digital Kinetics’ motion capture stage boasts 300 square metres of studio space and is now fully equipped with 24 Vicon Valkyrie 26MP cameras to ensure the highest quality capturing results for its growing client list across the gaming and film industries. With the combination of the Valkyrie cameras and Shōgun, Digital Kinetics can offer services right across the production process. The new stage is fully capable of delivering the very best motion capture and virtual production services, available to both the local and international entertainment industries.

Launched in 2022, the VK26 is the flagship model of the Valkyrie range, offering 26MP resolution across an amazing field of view. It has been specifically designed for highly demanding applications, including full body and high-resolution finger performance capture, virtual production, and In-Camera VFX (ICVFX) for AAA films and games.

Veselin Krstovski, Mocap Producer at Digital Kinetics, said: “As a new, but rapidly growing studio, having the latest technology is vital to us. It allows us to address more complex projects, opening lots of new opportunities for our business. I don’t think there is anything that we can’t do with the Vicon system – it tracks our actors in incredible detail, produces exceptionally clean data, and the support from Vicon is second to none.”

Nick Bolton, CEO of Oxford Metrics said: “As the visual effects sector continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in motion capture, increasingly, filmmakers and game designers need technologies that truly sense and capture every dimension of their subjects more accurately to real life. With Valkyrie and Shōgun, Digital Kinetics is offering truly state-of-the-art services from day one. Demonstrating the advantages of innovative technology like Valkyrie, Digital Kinetics have already reported lightning quick production times – which is enabling them to rapidly meet their client demands. We wish the team luck and look forward to seeing what they achieve as one of our first Valkyrie users.”
