Date:10/15/2009

Vicon, developer of motion capture products for the life science, engineering and entertainment industries, announced today they have signed an intellectual property (IP) license agreement with Microsoft Corp. allowing Vicon to manufacture and sell devices incorporating Microsoft’s SenseCam technology worldwide.

Oxford UK (PRWeb UK) October 15, 2009 -- Vicon, developer of motion capture products for the life science, engineering and entertainment industries, announced today they have signed an intellectual property (IP) license agreement with Microsoft Corp. allowing Vicon to manufacture and sell devices incorporating Microsoft’s SenseCam technology worldwide.

SenseCam is a wearable digital camera that takes photographs automatically, without user intervention. Developed by Microsoft Research Cambridge, the device is most commonly used by medical researchers as an aid for people with memory loss, but has great potential in a number of different application areas. Research into these areas will be possible now that it will be more widely available.

Vicon will be unveiling a new device, based on the existing SenseCam technology, on its stand #1413 at the annual Neuroscience Conference in Chicago on 17-21 October.

Andrew Herbert, Distinguished Engineer and Managing Director, Microsoft Research Cambridge said, “Microsoft’s willingness to license intellectual property arising from its research enables partner companies to bring innovative products to market. This agreement represents the next stage in the life of SenseCam and will bring the device to a broader community.”

“We’d like to thank Microsoft and Microsoft Research Cambridge for allowing Vicon to get involved in such an important product that can support a variety of researchers, including those investigating memory-loss,” said Douglas Reinke, CEO and President at Vicon. “We’re honoured to work with Microsoft and to build on the amazing work they have done with SenseCam over the past five years.

“The license agreement means we’re the first company to be able to deliver this ground breaking technology to a wider audience,” added Imogen Moorhouse, Managing Director at Vicon. “We’re looking forward to working closely with Microsoft and the researchers that have been using SenseCam Project technology and continuing to move it forward.”
