VioTrack F coded floor optical camera tracking system based on pre-calibrated coded floor
VioTrack F is the perfect system as a first step into the world of Virtual Production. Due to our precalibrated coded floor, the system can be used directly without marker calibration which allows easy installation and an ultra-short setup time. No need to take time-consuming manual measurements, or to affix markers, just roll out the coded floor, slide the camera over it and it is ready to use. The coded floor always delivers absolute position data. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
It is cost-effectively combined with your existing camera and lens, can be used on any camera support system, also for handheld cameras.
VioTrack R+ markerless optical camera tracking system based on real features in a natural environment.
VioTrack R+, our new all-rounder among optical camera tracking systems, combines the advantages of markerless and marker-based camera tracking in one system. VioTrack R+ analyzes the natural scene in real-time to automatically generate a point-cloud of 3D feature points. VioTrack R+ works without markers and enables tracking within seconds, whether inside your studio or outdoors, for any type of camera or rig.
Conventional markerless tracking systems often fail in situations of critical lighting or complete darkness. Our VioTrack R+ system, with its additional infrared setup, offers strong, sturdy tracking for all lighting conditions.
GhostTrack optical camera tracking system based on GhostFrame
Camera tracking systems determine the pose of the employed camera and support system in order to render the virtual image from the same perspective as the real camera. Traditional tracking systems require new equipment with external sensors at each axis of the individual support system and precise calibrations.
Zoom Lens Calibration
Augmented Reality creates a perfect illusion. It is crucial that virtual objects do not shift in relation to the real environment. To achieve this, you must determine the exact optical properties of your lens and the exact position and orientation of your broadcast camera.
The virtual camera renders the virtual image from the same perspective as the real broadcast lens over the full range of zoom and focus. Accurate lens calibration is mandatory. During the calibration process, you measure the physical parameters of the real lens and build your virtual camera model according to these interior parameters.
The data of all our camera tracking systems can be sent to all classical live broadcast render engines. To be able to connect to Game Engines like Unreal or Unity (page link compatibility),we also provide various render plugins. This enables you to connect to your preferred render engine quickly and easily; and all for them are free of charge.
