OptiTrack and StretchSense Ink Global Reseller Agreement and Form Strategic Partnership to Create Smoother Workflows for Game and Film Studios
CORVALLIS, OREGON —December 16, 2021 — OptiTrack (NaturalPoint), a worldwide leader in 3D tracking systems, has formally agreed with StretchSense to become a global authorized reseller of StretchSense’s hand and finger motion capture solution.
The strategic partnership includes both technology and channel benefits. OptiTrack will become a reseller of StretchSense gloves, giving customers the opportunity to buy a complete body and hand motion capture solution through a single channel. Customers can then use OptiTrack’s optical body capture with StretchSense hands as one, bringing simplicity to the often-complex motion capture technology set.
In addition, the two companies have been working together on a new integration to create smoother workflows for game and film studios alike, allowing for more speed and accuracy throughout the creative and production process, as well as minimizing clean-up in post-production.
Expanding Partnership with Continued Focus on Customer Success
Today’s announcement builds on the existing relationship between OptiTrack and StretchSense, with the impetus for partnership being twofold: 1) demand from the mutual customer base, and, 2) a shared vision for advancing the state of the art in emerging motion capture applications.
StretchSense joins OptiTrack at the 2022 Game Developers Conference (GDC) March 21-25 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
