The new Xsens MVN 每 Revolutionize professional motion capture


The new Xsens MVN 每 Revolutionize professional motion capture

Customer Insights Drive Motion Capture Enhancements for Ease of Use, Toughness and Production-Quality Data; Pricing Starts at 75 Percent Less

Xsens, the leading innovator in 3D inertial motion tracking technology, introduces a new wearable motion capture product line to deliver, fast, production-ready 3D data to professional animators at a more affordable price.

Featuring two fully redesigned systems and a 4.0 version of its software, the new Xsens MVN product line brings faster set-ups, cleaner data, and tougher materials designed for daily use in demanding production environments. With customers actively engaging in the product design process, the updated Xsens MVN line brings accessibility and high-quality performance to a production-ready workflow.

※We started using the MVN system over five years ago while working on &Paul* and have continued to use it ever since,§ says Simon Kay, motion capture supervisor at Double Negative. ※Xsens MVN has been a fantastic tool for previs and animation blocking. After experiencing the new MVN systems first hand, we can*t wait to introduce it into our production pipeline.§

※From the first moment we used the new system, we were amazed how intuitive it was and we were able to set it up in no time,§ says Alex Kiesl, creative director of Unexpected. ※The new features and possibilities are really compelling, we now love it even more!§

※The portability of the MVN system allows us to get true interplay between a CG character and the rest of the cast,§ says Webster Colcord, motion capture specialist on &Ted*. ※This is particularly important in comedy, where improvisation and timing are everything.§

The New Xsens MVN Product Line:

The three pillars of quality data, robust hardware and easier interactivity led Xsens to redesign its motion capture systems and software into a production-ready solution:

MVN Link: Xsens* full-body, camera-less mocap suit has been rebuilt to handle more strenuous conditions. Kevlar reinforced wires, ultra-small and lightweight trackers, fast on-body data buffering, and a battery life of 9.5 hours round out a robust design that is ready for any on-set production.

MVN Awinda: Xsens* strap-based system is ideal for animators who want to capture motions on the fly. Individual wireless motion trackers are attached to straps that can be quickly snapped on over clothes or easily exchanged among actors to recording for up to 6.5 hours.

MVN Studio 4.0: Xsens* widely used software package featuring patented 3D motion tracking technologies. Thanks to a massive update to Xsens* mocap engine, it now tracks height in real-time and delivers exceptionally clean data.

The MVN Studio pipeline integration has also been greatly expanded to solidify its mocap data in VFX and animation workflows. Now MVN Studio is even more accessible to industry-standard software pipelines such as Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, MotionBuilder, Houdini, UDK and Unity3D.

※Seven years after developing the world*s first inertial motion capture suit that quickly became the industry de facto standard tool for animators, Xsens has once again taken the motion capture market in an exciting new direction,§ says Hein Beute, product manager for Xsens. ※Motion capture is now affordable and accessible anywhere in its easiest and most powerful form yet. All you need is an idea.§
