A number of high profile game and film studios have signed up to use Dutch company Xsens' MVN motion capture technology.

Imageworks and Insomniac are joined by the likes of Sony Pictures in opting for the camera-less system, which offers a portable full-body motion capture solution. MVN was formerly known as Moven

"The flexibility and short turnaround time of the MVN system is unparalleled," said Ted Price, CEO of Insomniac Games, which is currently developing an unannounced title, exclusively for PS3. "With the MVN system, Xsens is changing the rules of the motion capture game: we’re saving time and money."

"Sony Pictures Imageworks and Insomniac Games are leading in their industry. We are very proud to have them as customers," added CEO of Xsens Technologies Casper Peeters. "These studios not only recognise the flexibility, quality and ease of use that Xsens MVN brings, but also its cost efficiency, bringing positive bottom line results."
