Released as oARo’s latest innovation for Virtual Production, our EZtrack Hub for camera tracking relies on a compact system unit that is operated by an intuitive interface. The solution delivers accurate tracking, compatibility with multiple tracking standards, image sync, zoom/focus data acquisition, communication with world-class 3D engines as well as objects or talents tracking in real-time.
Fast set-up, easy-to-deploy camera and objects tracking in real-time 3D
Designed to convey accurate camera tracking over a portable set-up, EZtrack® meets the needs of creative teams looking for a Plug&Play solution, promising quick deployment of their Virtual Studio.
VIRTUAL PRODUCTIONS ENTHUSIASTS: SAY HELLO TO EZtrack®!
THE SHORTEST PATH TO CAMERA TRACKING
Operating like a “Hub”, the EZtrack® Core System Unit processes the tracked data in real-time before sending it to the 3D rendering station. From live tracking to 3D compositing, the process remains straightforward and promises a complete control at every step.
SCALABLE HUB PROVIDED OUT OF THE BOX
The central node of your cameras rig that makes the difference!
Why should have to stick to one tracking technology when you could simply switch to another that would better fit your cameras rig, at time of shooting your project?
Unless other tracking solutions out now, EZtrack® has been engineered with the unique promise of providing virtual studios with a truly scalable and ‘open’ camera tracking environment.
Presented as a ‘Hub’, the system intends to support, aggregate and interface with only the best tracking standards currently available on the market, while already looking at those from tomorrow.
OPTICAL & MOTION CAPTURE TRACKING STANDARDS
Antilatency tracking core is now supported over the EZtrack® system unit. Our R&D is working hard to support other yet world-class tracking standards!Learn more details
XR-LEADING & HYBRID TRACKING STANDARDS
Aggregate mechanical with optical modules, over the Free-D protocol. EZtrack® intends to comply with proven standards from leading VR/AR/XR manufacturersLearn more details
PREMIUM FEATURES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
ONE UNIFIED INTERFACE
Send tracking data over FreeD protocol or with the LiveLink plugin for Unreal. EZtrack® intuitive interface displays all tracking information in a one-tab screen.
LENS DATA ACQUISITION
EZtrack® reads zoom/focus data from a wide range of digitally encoded lenses (Canon, Fujinon, Angénieux) as well as prime lenses thanks to external encoders
GENLOCK SUPPORT ACROSS THE RIG
EZtrack® processes the Genlock signal generated across the cameras rig, as such feature is especially useful for live-to-air applications
Operate the camera tracking via a dedicated WebApp accessible from any computer or tablet on your network, even if control room is away the set
Achieving an excellent value for money, the solution has been especially engineered to be lighter and easier to use than other tracking products, thus enabling quick deployment of your virtual studio set-up with significantly less efforts.
Designed for mastered virtual studio conditions without many reflective surfaces, every EZtrack® Core System Unit can handle up to 1 camera rig and up to 2 objects or live talents tracking.
Discover EZtrack® use-cases
From live TV sets to On-Set Previs, EZtrack® can be interfaced with multiple configurations :
– Virtual Studio setup for Live show/Live Entertainment in Augmented Reality (AR)
– Camera tracking : steadycams and handheld cameras, dollies, small cranes
-Objects tracking : 3D assets insertion, virtual accessories
-Talent tracking: automatic depth compositing
200 x 150 x 65 mm
Genlock input to sync camera tracking / Black burst and tri level
Motorized & encoded lines from Canon, Fujinon, Angénieux over their data/virtual port interface
Up to 3 trackers inputs supported per unit
External Encoders Support
Dedicated input supporting Encodacam Nano wheeled encoders for zoom/focus data aquisition
H/W + Software Set-up
WORLD-CLASS RENDER ENGINES SUPPORT
Operating over the standardized yet proven Free-D protocol to transmit tracking data in real-time, EZtrack® has been designed with the Plug&Play factor in mind as the system does interface with the live 3D engine standards of today, while looking at those of tomorrow.
Track your cameras either over any classic green screen cyclorama
Or interface the system with any LED-based rigs using the Display plugin for Unreal: EZtrack® can be set-up either way!
We provide a unique WebApp to entirely remote control the tracking duties across your camera(s) rig. The EZtrack® App does feature:
– An intuitive interface displaying all useful tracking information being centralized in one-tab screen.
– Accessible from any computer on the studio network, even from your smartphone or tablet!
– Rest API is included for custom pipeline integration.
Data acquisition from Broadcast/Encoded lenses
Thanks to its proprietary interface, our System Hub natively supports motorized/digitally encoded lenses to get raw zoom and focus data at fingertips! EZtrack® can be interfaced with lenses from Canon, Fujinon and Angénieux thanks to a single Hirose cable that will connect to the data port.
Interface with Prime lenses and follow-focus
For non-encoded lenses or Prime lenses for Cinema, EZtrack® can be interfaced with external wheeled encoders as we can provide Encodacam ‘Nano’ encoders from our primary US Partner General Lift! The EZtrack® System Hub can also support specific follow-focus systems such as Preston.
