High-visibility active strand
SuperNova builds on the success of Vicon’s Nova LED solution to offer next-gen active tracking of props and objects in large and occluded environments. Designed in direct response to the increased sizes and complexity of motion capture volumes seen in virtual production, our newly developed optic enables 270-degree visibility at stable ranges of over fifteen meters – almost double that of the previous generation.
While SuperNova builds on the performance of its predecessor, compatibility and customization remain at the heart of its design. Users can create marker layouts that suit their specific object needs and power the strand using a wide range of off-the-shelf USB battery packs.
By combining high performance with easy customization, SuperNova actively improves the quality of tracking data across a variety of scenarios, streamlining your experience on-set or while running location-based VR sessions.

No. Because SuperNova is always on and does not strobe, there is no need to worry about sync.
No. Once the LED string has been built and powered – you are good to go.
This device is only intended to be attached to rigid objects such as film cameras and props. If you have any queries on the safe use of the device, please contact [email protected].
Yes, however if you have unique requirements then we suggest you first contact [email protected] so our support team can advise on the most appropriate approach for your specific needs.
No, but thicker wires are needed for very long distances and this can therefore impact how easily they attach to the bases. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
Yes, but in most cases it’s highly unlikely that you’d be so far away that this is a concern. In most instances, users. Think about the location of your power, rather than distance.
Yes. The further away a string of markers is from a camera, the closer each will appear to the others on the string and therefore become more difficult to distinguish. This is especially important in scenarios where you wish to track multiple objects, as the uniqueness of the marker layout is critical.
We advise that you consider the average viewing distance for your intended purpose and make sure markers are further away in larger volumes. Please contact [email protected] for help with your specific situation.
