Meet our new Smart Sync Box

Our R&D team has been hardworking for a few months prototyping a unique facial mocap shooting assistant.

This little clever electronic device comes with a user-friendly interface that:

  • Handles effective lighting by strobing LED ring(s) synchronized with the shutter of the camera(s).
    Strobing LED rings ensure more consistent illumination conditions and less interference with optical body mocap systems. Also, the actor can easily switches the LED ring(s) on and off when the shooting starts and stops for a maximum comfort.
  • Synchronises several cameras when recording with stereo systems.
  • Lets you monitor and adjust recording settings such as frames per second, exposure time, gain, HMC IDs… directly on the Head Mounted System.
  • Receives information and commands wirelessly from a server using FM band so there is no issue like with traditional wireless systems.  A server can handle up to 8 Smart Sync Boxes with a unique ID.
  • Exchanges information with Dynamixyz video recording and monitoring software, Grabber.

The Smart Sync box will be commercially available as a standalone component and embedded in each Dynamixyz stereo Head Mounted system from beginning of July 2019.

Prices are available upon request.

Live Instant just tracks and retargets any face in real-time

We’ve just launched a new set of real-time solutions with a brand new generic tracking technology named Live Instant, along with our existing specific real-time tracking technology renamed Live Pro.

We’ve received an increasing demand for live-only systems – particularly for VR plays and live events for the last 18 months” – Dr Gaspard Breton, Dynamixyz CEO, says. “That is why we’ve focused on developing a generic tracking technology that can track automatically any face and solve the animation on any rig. Only a small prep of the 3D character’s rig is required.” The technology can also run on low-power devices such as smartphones and tablets.

 

Our R&D team testing Live Instant

This Live Instant solution will be available along with the Live Pro solution. This latter requires some initial setup phase to create the profile of an actor. Both solutions are complementary in a pipeline. Live Instant gives production teams instant previzualisation of facial animation for secondary characters during the shoot whereas Live Pro allows teams to get higher quality results for main characters. Live Instant appears to be a powerful asset for virtual production.
