THE FIRST COMPLETE LBVR SOLUTION HAS EVERYTHING NEEDED TO POWER LOCATION-BASED VR TRACKING
Vicon Origin revealed
Vicon has announced the release of Origin, a location-based virtual reality (LBVR) system that blends Vicon’s tracking abilities with tools that make it easy for anyone to set up and operate. the new solution has been designed to empower Vr creators big and small, by offering unparalleled quality and reliability.
“the location-based Vr industry is poised to explode, but for fans and developers to really embrace it, the experience needs to be flawless,” says dreamscape immersive co-founder and CTO Caecilia Charbonnier. “when Vicon first approached us about working with them on Origin we demanded the highest level of precision, and Vicon did not disappoint.”
Origin includes three brand-new pieces of hardware, along with software created specifically for Vicon’s new LBVR system. Following three years of development alongside creators like dreamscape immersive, Origin contains everything needed to drive a fully immersive experience.
Multiple participants can appear simultaneously in the LBVR environment, each with fully animated avatars driven by evoke’s real-time tracking. they can interact with and react to others based on movements. tools and props can use clusters as well, allowing them to be passed between participants for immersion.
“we have decades of experience creating optical motion capture systems in the world, so the expansion into LBVR was natural,” says Vicon CEO imogen Moorhouse. “Origin has been perfected over the last few years, built upon the foundation of our proven solutions, and designed to meet the needs of this exciting industry.”
