Volumetric Capture Cameras for High-Quality 3D Content Generation

Volumetric capture is the process for capturing human performances in real-time to bring them into virtual worlds. This is achieved by using multiple accurately synchronized cameras to capture the environment from many angles or vantage points. The captured data is then processed to form a 3D avatar of the subject that can be viewed from all angles.

As a premier supplier of volumetric capture cameras, accessories, and software Emergent’s products have been used by numerous tier 1 companies who have created capture studios and laboratories with as many as 250 cameras in a system.

Our high-speed cameras utilize the latest sensor technology from Sony and Gpixel. These industrial grade sensors are designed for the most demanding VR, AR, and MR applications. Sensors from the Sony Pregius S family and the Gpixel GMAX and Gsprint series offer excellent image quality to capture every life-like detail, for example hair or skin texture, to render hyper realistic models. They also provide high-frame rates to reliably capture every movement of the model in real-time. All feature a global shutter CMOS to eliminate motion distortion.

With resolutions from 0.5 to 65 megapixels and frame rates to 1,594 fps we offer a wide range of cameras to suit your specific application requirements.


Because VR, AR, and MR applications are data intensive, cameras with high-bandwidth digital output interfaces are most commonly used. We are the award-winning pioneer for 10GigE, 25GigE, 50GigE, and 100GigE. Based on SFP+, SFP28, and QSFP28 interfaces our cameras outperform competing interfaces like CoaXPress (CXP) with up to 12,500 Mbytes/s bandwidth available.

In addition, we take responsibility for the complete solution by developing technologies to keep the server-side CPU utilization and latency to incredibly low levels. This results in less than 1% CPU utilization and approximately only 100μs added latency.


Volumetric capture relies on multiple cameras to capture image data of a model. Emergent provides several options to tightly control the timing synchronization between cameras including Precision Time Protocol (PTP), and hardware triggering, delivering reliable microsecond accuracies with minimal effort.


Our cameras are GigE Vision and Genicam compliant. This means they can be used with standard hardware, cables, and any GigE Vision compatible software for simplified and low-cost integration.
Emergent’s own software solution (eCapture viewer software and eSDK) supports Windows 10 and Ubuntu, RedHat, and CentOS Linux.

Because our cameras are based on SFP+, SFP28 and QSFP28 we offer several options to support cable lengths of up to 10kms.
