View Full Version : motion capture infrastructure

10-14-2010, 06:28 AM
Hello All,

Our university governance is entertaining proposals for an
infrastructure initiative related to the large topic of "imaging". As
part of this topic, a multidisciplinary team of researchers from areas
as varied as arts and design to ergonomics and biomechanics is seeking
to put forth a proposal for a "state-of-the-art" 3D motion capture/
video lab, including space and equipment needs.

I am seeking some information on space needs (dimensions etc),
equipment, and other resource issues from those of you who may have
been involved in such an endeavor. I would also be appreciative to
hear from those of you who have used different motion capture systems,
and from those of you who may have been involved in using motion
capture for entertainment or artistic endeavors.

Thank you in advance for your responses.
