Program Title:  Markerless Motion Imaging and Real Time 3D Tracking Data for Digital Media Production and Entertainment

Presented by: Alex Czarowicz, VP Sales, Organic Motion, Inc.

About the Program:

This program will feature recent work regarding markerless motion tracking systems that employ motion imaging and computer vision technology enabling computers to cognitively “see” people’s complex movements and generate accurate 3D tracking data in real-time, all without body suits or tracking devices. Organic Motion, Inc. is a software company that specializes in these types of computer vision systems for human tracking and real-time, marker-less 3D motion capture and scanning. The program will explain how this technology works and provide a live web-based demonstration of Organic Motion’s technology and its integration to other applications such as Autodesk MotionBuilder™ and MotionMonitor.™ The audience will be able to experience first-hand demonstrations of animation and bio-mechanic applications used in a variety of digital media environments, including motion picture, videogame and sports applications.  In addition, this program will also touch on how this technology applies to other markets such as education, training, simulation and other types of live interactive public venues.
