Imagineer Announces Partnerships
Guildford, UK -- Imagineer Systems (www.imagineersystems.com) announced a series of licensing agreements and strategic partnerships that significantly expand market presence for its flagship Planar Tracking technology into high end post production and finishing markets, as well as into consumer/prosumer content creation markets. At IBC 2012 in Amsterdam this week, Imagineer will announce strategic partnerships with Quantel, ASSIMILATE SCRATCH and FXhome - all of whom are licensing or supporting Imagineer’s Planar Tracking technology from mocha to bring its award-winning motion tracking technology into new products.
Additionally, since its release at NAB 2012 earlier this year of mocha AE v3 and mocha Pro v3, mocha and its signature Planar Tracking technology have quickly become popular among Hollywood’s leading post production houses and VFX artists, and has been shortlisted to win a Scientific and Technical Award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Imagineer Systems will also be participating in the 5th Annual Amsterdam SuperMeet on September 9, 2012. The team from Imagineer will be on hand to preview the forthcoming mocha Pro, v3.1.

Strategic Partnerships Announced at IBC 2012
At IBC 2012 Quantel and Imagineer have announced that Quantel has integrated the mocha Planar Tracker into the Quantel color and finishing toolset. The mocha Planar Tracker is fully integrated into the Quantel multilayer timeline and will be instantly available regardless of the task at hand. The mocha Planar Tracker will be a free upgrade for all systems running Quantel V5 software from the end of October 2012.
“mocha’s terrier-like tracking capabilities are a great addition to the Quantel color and finishing toolset and will make post sessions even more productive and creative,” said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director.
Imagineer Systems also announced new Planar Tracking data export capability for ASSIMILATE SCRATCH users from Imagineer System's mocha Pro v3.1. With this agreement, mocha now offers new support and process for SCRATCH users to import mocha's planar tracking data for transform, scale, rotation and corner pin perspective. With the new mocha Pro to SCRATCH workflow, artists can seamlessly tackle the most difficult motion tracking shots for screen inserts, match moves, set extensions and image stabilization. SCRATCH v7 will be shipping in Q4 2012.
"Together, SCRATCH and mocha Pro are the perfect combination for delivering highest quality, effects driven content. For years SCRATCH artists have asked for the ability to access mocha's powerful planar tracking data within SCRATCH. We are very pleased to be working with the team at ASSIMILATE to help deliver this useful new feature to the users,” said Ross Shain, chief marketing officer, Imagineer Systems.
