With over eight years of development, the Faceware Headcam systems capture crystal-clear video reference of any acting performance that is ideal for use in Faceware’s software products. Two main hardware options are now available for rent or purchase: the entry-level GoPro® Headcam Kit and the Professional Headcam System.
The GoPro® Headcam Kit offers a one-size-fits-all helmet with three camera- mounting options and includes everything budget-conscious users need for facial performance capture-- including a license of Analyzer 2.0 Lite and Retargeter 4.0 Lite. It can also be combined with the GoPro® iOS, Windows, and Android app for remote start and stop as well as remote monitoring and easy camera framing.
The Professional Headcam System (from $300 rental per day) is a sturdy, professional-grade system that offers multiple helmet, padding, lens, mounting bar and capture options for ultimate adaptability on-set. With a unique drop-arm design, easy access to CCU settings, and maximum stability, the system captures high-quality facial data in any size volume, looking in any direction. The entire system is lightweight for long-term actor comfort-- weighing in at just 15 ounces for the camera, mounting arm and helmet and 27 ounces for the camera belt, CCU, battery, and cabling. There are options for rental or purchase of the Professional Headcam system.
