Faceware to target Japan and China with its motion capture technology
Asian markets ahoy!
Faceware has announced that it will be targeting Asian region with its motion capture technology. It has signed two new resellers Japan?s Crescent Inc. for the Japanese market and Beijing Ou-Lei Technology, Co, Ltd., a successful supplier of entertainment equipment & solutions in China.
The company explains why it chose these two resellers:
“We have been selling directly to those markets for a few years, but given the increasing demand and the time differences, it made more sense to partner with companies that know the market and offer complementary technologies to ours,” said Peter Busch, vice president of business development at Faceware Technologies.
“In Crescent and Beijing Ou-Lei Technology, we?ve found two strong partners with deep ties to their countries? entertainment markets.”
“Crescent is the exclusive distributor of the world-leading Vicon Motion Capture Systems to the entertainment market,” said Hajime Kotani, founder of Crescent Inc. “Faceware’s technology not only offers high-quality, markerless facial motion capture; its ability to work seamlessly with Vicon’s systems allows us to offer animation studios a far more complete solution for performance capture.”
Adds Lei Xi, vice president at Beijing Ou-Lei Technology, Co, Ltd.: “Marker-based facial motion capture systems are not accurate and very difficult to use. That is the primary reason we decided to work with Faceware Technologies.”
Basic software is free of charge but if you want it for professional use, you gotta pay.
