Digital Kinetics, a new motion capture and virtual production studio based has officially opened in Zagreb, Croatia.
The facility is one of the first studios in the world to deploy Vicon’s Valkyrie cameras in combination with the company’s Shōgun software platform.
The 300 square metres studio space is equipped with 24 Vicon Valkyrie 26MP cameras. Launched in 2022, the VK26 is the flagship model of the Valkyrie range, offering 26MP resolution. It has been specifically designed for virtual production, and in-camera VFX (ICVFX) for high-end productions.
Veselin Krstovski, mocap producer at Digital Kinetics, said: “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.”
Andy Ray, sales director at Vicon, added: “Built on nearly four decades of Vicon expertise, the capabilities and the robustness of the combined Valkyrie and Shōgun system, are designed to help studios of any size optimise capture and processing for maximum quality results. It is fantastic to see an up-and-coming studio like Digital Kinetics go live with their new Valkyrie-enabled system.
“With Valkyrie and Shōgun, Digital Kinetics is offering truly state-of-the-art services from day one. Demonstrating the advantages of innovative technology like Valkyrie, Digital Kinetics have already reported lightning quick production times – which is enabling them to rapidly meet their client demands,” added Ray.
