This means that it can be set up automatically and within a very short period of time. It delivers the highest precision for all Virtual Productions and can be built into any xR stage and setup.
Only GhostFrame LED panels needed for tracking - nothing else
GhosTrack only requires GhostFrame LED panels for perfect camera tracking. No further structures, markers, reference objects on the studio ceiling, floor or wall are necessary. It is quick and easy to install and requires little to no setup time. It is particularly suitable for short-term events and rentals.
high precision for high quality productions
GhosTrack offers highest precision for calculating the exact camera position. Especially for set extensions, the virtual graphics must be continued beyond the LED panels. GhosTrack uses the hidden patterns of the GhostFrame Technology precisely at these seams and adapts the virtual objects as best as possible.
perfect for use in closed LED caves
Allows camera tracking even for nearly closed LED caves, where the backwalls and maybe even the ceiling or floor is covered with LED panels. In such an environment, marker-based optical camera tracking systems or additional sensor cameras for outside-in tracking cannot be used without interference. But the hidden tracking information of GhostFrame turns every LED panel into a reference object for camera tracking. GhosTrack works where other systems fail.
GhosTrack’s hardware set-up is very easy. Only the sensor unit and the lens are connected to the Mini Workstation during setup. The Mini Workstation uses a Linux operating system specially designed for the real-time needs of our image processing software. The complete camera tracking data is sent to the graphics renderers through a regular Ethernet network.
There is also a special TTL (Through the Lens) setup available. Here, the sensor unit or tracking camera is not needed. Just the video of the broadcast camera and its lens data need to be transmitted to the Mini Workstation. This allows for very easy setups and even downstream applications (Tracking hardware being at a different location).
