UX Designer


Vicon has revolutionized the motion capture (Mocap) industry for over 35 years, by pioneering a range of technologies – from optical to inertial and VR – to allow our customers to capture and analyze motion of all kinds. The VICON Mocap systems consist of specialized cameras that record the movements of markers or sensors attached to the person or object being tracked. The data from the cameras is then processed by Vicon’s proprietary software to create 3D models of the movements. Vicon systems can be used in a variety of applications, including:

1. Entertainment – Work with the leading production studios and game developers to ensure Vicon systems deliver the highest accuracy, flexibility, and performance.

2. Life Sciences – Capture movements of real subjects and provide insights into human motion, to help advance biomechanics, physical therapy, and sports science.

3. Virtual Production – Enable real-time performance capture, pre-visualization, and translation of data into digital animations that are integrated into a virtual environment.

4. Engineering: Provide tracking solutions for leading companies and innovative end users in the engineering industry for many years,

5. Virtual Reality – Create realistic and natural movements for virtual characters and objects and allow users to interact with and manipulate these.

Vicon Motion Systems Ltd is a subsidiary company of Oxford Metrics Plc. We have offices in Yarnton, Denver, Los Angeles & Auckland.
