Vitec Videocom Partners with Vizrt To Expand Ncam Worldwide


Vitec Videocom has partnered with Vizrt to bolster the global reach of Ncam’s real-time virtual camera-tracking technology.

Ncam Live is a unique camera tracking system that offers broadcast productions virtual and augmented graphic technology. The device uses a lightweight sensor bar attached to a camera to track natural markers in the environment, allowing the camera to move freely in all locations while generating a continuous stream of precise positional information that can feed all industry standard graphics engines.

“We have worked with Ncam for more than two years since they were the first company on the market with unrestricted augmented reality capabilities,” said Francois Laborie, Vizrt CCO.  “When doing outdoor augmented reality, no other system has proven to be as stable and robust, making Ncam an obvious choice as a preferred partner for real-time virtual tracking technology.”

Vizrt will sell, service and support Ncam products worldwide as part of the agreement.

The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
