Vicon Acquires Peak Performance

Motion-capture technology leader Vicon Motion Systems has acquired the business and assets of Peak Performance Technologies Inc., a Denver, Col.-based mo-cap products provider specializing in motion measurement and analysis in sports performance and animal science.

Julian Morris, CEO of Vicon’s parent company, OMG Group, comments, “We believe that this is an excellent acquisition for the group, bringing expansion into the sports market and video-based motion capture. Peak and Vicon, together, provide a compelling proposition across a wide market and product range.”

Vicon is the maker of the first 4 million-pixel motion capture camera. The company says the combination Peak’s strength in video-based motion measurement and Vicon’s high-accuracy motion systems allows customers to satisfy all their tracking and analysis needs from a single company. With more than 700 customers worldwide, Peak also complements Vicon’s existing presence in life sciences, animation and engineering.

Based in Oxford, England and California, OMG has customers in more than 35 countries and trades through a number of operating subsidiaries in the name of Vicon Motion Systems, 2d3 and House of Moves in the U.K. and U.S., and through a network of distributors in other major countries.
