Digital Kinetics Deploys Vicon’s Valkyrie and Shōgun

Croatia-based studio creates cutting-edge motion capture stage to deliver mocap and virtual production services to local and international entertainment industries.

Croatia-based motion-capture studio Digital Kinetics has announced their new deployment of Vicon’s Valkyrie cameras in combination with Vicon’s Shōgun software platform. Delivered with Italian-based motion-capture company and Vicon distributor GPEM, using the cameras and software platform, the stage enables delivery of cutting-edge motion-capture and virtual production services to both the local and international entertainment industries.

Digital Kinetics mocap producer Veselin Krstovski commented, “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.”

The Digital Kinetics motion-capture stage boasts 300 square meters of studio space equipped with 24 Vicon Valkyrie 26MP cameras offering high-quality capturing results for its clients across the game and film industries.

It is fantastic to see an up-and-coming studio like Digital Kinetics go live with their new Valkyrie-enabled system.
