Half-Pipe Demos in OptiTrack SIGGRAPH Booth Showcase Robust Capabilities of Motion Capture System lunedý, 22 Luglio 2013 - 02:00 PM - 7 Months, 3 ago - 12 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Anaheim, California--July 22, 2013) Motion capture provider OptiTrack is featuring markered skateboarders shredding a half-pipe in its booth (#535) at the SIGGRAPH Conference in Anaheim, Calif. from July 23-25, 2013. The custom 30’x20’ setup maximizes the available capture volume by leveraging the wide-angle capabilities of 24 Prime 17W cameras powered by recently released Motive:Body software. Specially engineered skateboards featuring LED markers embedded on the decks, trucks and wheels allow them to be tracked alongside the skateboarders’ movements and will be captured, delivered and rendered in real time in the first live demonstration of its kind. Also performing with the skateboarders will be an expert quad roller skater. “OptiTrack’s core technology is remarkably extensible,” said Brian Nilles, Chief Strategy Officer. “Motion capture setups that were formerly considered to be very difficult and unthinkable in live exhibition settings are just really easy for OptiTrack systems. The skate ramp is a great example of the Prime 17W’s ability to pack large capture volumes into small spaces, and the SIGGRAPH show will feature an all real-time performance in the half pipe with multiple performance types in just a 30’x20’ space.”
