Artanim is a leading center in motion capture technologies. The non-profit foundation was founded in 2011 by three motion capture specialists: Caecilia Charbonnier, Clementine Lo and Sylvain Chagué.
The foundation conducts three types of activities linked to motion capture. First, it carries out research activities in the field of Computer Graphics according to two strategic axes of research: medical research and virtual/augmented reality applications. Second, Artanim develops award-winning interactive installations that can exploit the potential of virtual and augmented reality, user performance and interactive control to provide new ways of experiencing digital content. Finally, the team collaborates with professional schools and universities to add motion capture courses or workshops to their educational program.
Unfortunately small production companies have limited access to motion capture. As one of the largest motion capture centers in Switzerland, Artanim hopes to make this technology more accessible and encourage its use in various audiovisual content. The foundation also develops cultural events where motion capture can be used to create new expression and interaction modes.
Thanks to an interdisciplinary profile and a good understanding of the industry and its challenges, Artanim has become over the years a partner of choice. Notably, being more application-oriented than just focused on fundamental research, the foundation has acquired a unique expertise in mastering the challenges of transforming technology into products. For instance, Artanim is behind the VR technology driving Dreamscape Immersive, which is the product of 8-years of R&D to create the ultimate immersive experience for their worldwide location-based VR entertainment centers, as well as for their innovative educational and training programs.
