Company Summary

Measuring the motion of humans and technical processes is important in many industries. Notably the entertainment industry relies heavily on motion tracking for synthesizing virtual characters. Further applications exist in medicine, in sports, in factory planning, and even in veterenary medicine. The Captury offers software and hardware solutions to make capturing these motions easier, faster, or in many situations possible at all.
