Image Metrics gets new director

Facial motion capture provider Image Metrics has appointed Dave Rolston to its board of directors.

Rolston is currently founder and CEO of Forterra Systems, a developer of educational and business virtual worlds. Prior to that, he was vice president of engineering for ATI, where he was responsible for the design of chips for PCs and game consoles.

"Dave’s extensive experience in many of the entertainment industries we are working in is an invaluable asset to Image Metrics," said Mike Starkenburg, chief operating officer of Image Metrics.

"We are pleased to add his extraordinary technical knowledge to our board as we continue to deliver realistic facial animation for games and films with our proprietary computer vision solution."

Rolston added: "Throughout my career, I have been passionately working on technologies that help to replicate human experiences through computer-created media. Image Metrics’ technology is breaking new ground in facial animation by providing studios with an innovative and cost-effective method for driving more realism into CG faces. I’m excited to support the growth of that technology and their company with my experience."
