Hoffman Estates, IL – Red Eye Studio, the Midwest’s most experienced motion capture studio, is the first company in North America to purchase the T160 camera system, the latest in motion capture equipment from Vicon Motion Systems.

Using this state-of-the-art motion capture equipment, Red Eye Studio is able to further refine its innovative approach to motion capture that allows the capture of every nuance of human motion in real-time, including multiple subjects, props, stunt rigs, and a full range of detailed, emotive facial motion. The precision of the captured data afforded by these systems is paramount when recreating the performances of the world’s top athletes, actors, and performers.

The T160 cameras offer an unmatched 16 megapixels of resolution, providing crystal clear data and full-frame capture speeds of up to 120fps. The cameras offer four times more resolution than any other motion capture system currently on the market.

“Next-Gen games ought to have Next-Gen motion capture,” said David Lapekas, Studio Director at Red Eye. “With our new cameras, we will be the first to be able to provide that.”

"The new camera system is truly remarkable. We have quadrupled our resolution and the data is unbelievably clean," said Lapekas. "We are tremendously excited about the new capabilities; we were already the only motion capture studio to focus on game-ready animation. But gamers are going to be ecstatic about the new level of realism and detail they are going to benefit from. It is a new gaming experience altogether.”

“We are thrilled that Red Eye Studio is the first motion-capture company in North America to install our MX T-Series system and are working collaboratively with them to integrate new and unprecedented advances into their production pipeline. We’ve been working with Red Eye Studio for over seven years, and look forward to seeing the world-class content they’ll be producing with the new T160 cameras for their clients”, said Robin Pengelly, Senior Vice President, VICON.

Red Eye Studio will be demonstrating its motion capture capabilities in Booth 1455 at Siggraph 2008 in August, as well as showcase its extensive portfolio that includes work from Bioshock, The Conduit, Prey, and Ballers: Chosen One.
