Free camera movement, even for hand-held shots

Pixotope optical camera tracking systems accurately calculate the 3D position and orientation of the camera body itself. This enables any kind of camera movement within the tracking area, also suitable for hand-held cameras. The additional integration of pre-calibrated zoom lens data allows random zoom and focus settings regardless of the camera movements.

Works on any support system

Pixotope optical camera tracking systems measure the position and orientation of the camera body itself and work independently of the camera support system which is currently being applied. Now, you can simply choose between using a tripod, pedestal, dolly, jib arm, crane, Steadicam or even a hand-held camera. Should you choose to switch to a new or rented support system to suit your clients’ needs. There is no need to purchase an additional specialized support system, simply upgrade your existing one.

GhosTrack optical camera tracking system based on GhostFrame

The optical camera tracking system GhosTrack makes perfect use of the patented GhostFrame technology. To calculate the pose of the camera, it uses hidden information of GhostFrame LED panels (see ghostframe.com for more details about GhostFrame).

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.
