Pixomondo selects Vicon for virtual production stages


Vicon has secured several contracts to power Pixomondo award-winning’s virtual production solutions.

The specialist in motion measurement will provide a combination of 105 Vicon Viper X and 20 Vero cameras, plus Shōgun software, facilitating high-precision, live-camera tracking and in-camera visual effects.

Virtual production techniques including camera tracking for in-camera visual effects, allow directors, production designers and VFX supervisors to view their projects live on set, so that they can react and make changes as needed, rather than having to wait until post-production.

Pixomondo, which has won Oscars and Emmys, has studios throughout North America and Europe, with three proprietary LED stages for virtual production in Toronto and Vancouver.

“We were pleased to find a motion capture company that focuses on camera tracking, which is very important for Pixomondo’s Virtual Production stages,” said Josh Kerekes, director of virtual production at Pixomondo. “It was impressive to see how Vicon’s software and roadmaps were geared toward virtual production and could be custom-tailored to suit our needs. Vicon is forward-thinking with software and hardware – particularly the thorough documentation and intuitive calibration process – which has enabled the Pixomondo team to easily configure entire systems within 48 hours of unboxing.”

Vicon’s director of sales, Jeffrey Ovadya, said: “Virtual production is providing a new realm of possibilities for those in the TV and film production space, with the real-time animation capture that it affords pushing filmmaking to the next level. It is a tremendous endorsement of our technology that we have been trusted by Pixomondo to support its impressive virtual production capabilities, and we look forward to working with them in bringing the world’s biggest productions to life.”
