InterSense Introduces IS-900 VCam(TM) Virtual Camera Tracking System

InterSense IS-900 VCamInertial-ultrasonic virtual camera tracking offers unique solution for pre-visualization of virtual content in real-time, at production resolution

Los Angeles, CA, SIGGRAPH — August 11, 2008 — InterSense Incorporated, a market leader in precision motion technology, today announced its IS-900 VCam(TM) Virtual Camera Tracking System, a precision, inertial-ultrasonic virtual camera tracking system for use in the pre-visualization of virtual content. Combining InterSense’s industry leading motion tracking technology with powerful virtual production software, the new system enables producers of animated & 3D feature film, game and video to increase productivity, streamline workflow and lower production costs.

The IS-900 VCam provides a simple and natural way to create the realism of handheld and steady-cam operator moves from a virtual camera. Pre-visualization of virtual content occurs in real-time, at pre-viz resolution, providing the director with flexibility and creativity previously unavailable.

The system features InterSense’s MicroTrax 6-DOF motion tracking sensors directly integrated into a production camera body with Autodesk® MotionBuilder® functions mapped to the camera’s interface controls. A 3-axis analog joystick added to the VCam allows translation, rotation and scaling of the virtual environment in MotionBuilder to help set-up or scout a virtual shot. In addition, buttons on the camera for zoom, play, record and jog transfer total production control to the camera operator. Remote video or wireless options are also available, adding further freedom and flexibility.

“VFX supervisors, directors and producers can now save hours in production time by directly scouting virtual shots, or trying multiple camera moves, without key framing or pre-programming camera paths,? stated Dean Wormell, director of application marketing at InterSense. “The system establishes a ground-breaking process for creating content for feature films and games and puts tremendous, interactive control in the hands of the director.?

The VCam is immediately available from InterSense. For pricing and further details contact InterSense sales at sales@intersense.com or +1 781 541 7650.
