MARKER TRACKING

IMMUNE TO CHANGES IN LIGHT CONDITIONS

Our top-notch optical camera tracking system is simple to use and adapts effortlessly to changes in light conditions. The Marker Edition is versatile, supporting various marker patterns tailored to your specific environment.
 
It excels in different lighting conditions, using infrared retro-reflective markers for optimal performance and  infrared markers for seamless chroma keying in green/blue screen setups.  Even if some of the markers have been partially covered for whatever reason, Marker Edition will have no difficulty calculating the actual absolute camera position instantly.
 
Your graphics will always be positioned precisely in the same place; there is no need for any further adjustments.

Sensor

tracking

This system features a compact optical sensor securely mounted on your broadcast camera, making it easy to aim at walls or ceilings, even on uneven surfaces. 
 
The sensor unit stands out in detecting unique visual markers, ensuring precise measurement of your camera's position and orientation. With 6 degrees of freedom, your camera can move freely in any position or rotation, perfect for dynamic hand-held shots. 
 
The visual information of the sensor camera is required to determine the camera tracking data. Like the human eye, the sensor camera might be blind when using low-light conditions or blinded when using changing show-lights.
 
To overcome these limitations, the sensor camera can be equipped with an additional infrared LED ring light. It illuminates the retroreflective markers, which reflect the light perfectly to the sensor camera. Now, the sensor camera works regardless of the environmental light, without jerkiness or failures.
