The DI4D HMC (Head-Mounted Camera) is an industry-leading solution that can be used to capture 4D facial-performance data from multiple actors alongside full-body motion capture. The DI4D HMC system is wireless, lightweight and comfortable, allowing actors to roam freely without inhibiting their performance. The sculpted design and markerless technology also feels much less intrusive for the actor, enabling them to focus on acting and forget about the technology.
Fitted with a stereo pair of 4MP cameras, the system is built with synchronised, on-board strobed LED illumination which ensure excellent camera focus and equal illumination across the face that doesn’t artificially increase brightness. The DI4D HMC has an easily adjustable head rig with an innovative head-band and boom design. This eliminates pinch points for greater subject comfort and excellent camera stability.
The DI4D HMC is fitted with a stereo pair of 4MP cameras that capture at a resolution of 3mp at 60 FPS, up to 1536 x 2048 high frame rate, producing sharp, high quality images per frame, with easily adjustable focus. It is built with synchronised, on-board strobed LED diffuse panel illumination to create equal illumination across the actors face, with no motion blur.
Built for comfort, the DI4D HMC is both lightweight and adjustable and the innovative padding moulds using our innovative wire tensioning fit system, to ensure helmets can be removed and fitted quickly and repeatedly, offers a bespoke fit. The adjustable head rig includes an innovative head band and rigid carbon fibre boom design, eliminates pinch points for greater subject comfort and excellent camera stability and fit. It is also completely marker free and wireless with a lightweight wearable rear or front mounted battery pack and recorder, enabling the actor to roam freely.
The DI4D HMC is quick and easy to set up, providing consistently sharp images for a maximum record time of 6 hours via easy adjustable focus rings and a 6-way camera adjustment for precise positioning. It offers a customisable file naming scheme making it easy to find content through a recorder information screen and a secondary live image feed accessible from any web browser. The rechargeable battery provides up to 3 hours of continuous wireless operation and is hot swappable to ensure minimum interruptions to shooting.
Our unique software enables anyone to remotely control multiple HMCs in a production environment and confidently capture content with DI4Dlive, simplifying the process of monitoring, recording, reviewing and managing multiple takes across multiple DI4D HMCs. DI4Dlive provides features to optimise 4D performance capture, including built in camera calibration and 4D reconstruction. The videos captured by the HMCs are compatible with third party animation solutions.
