VIRTUAL PRODUCTIONS ENTHUSIASTS: SAY HELLO TO EZtrack®!

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.

THE SHORTEST PATH TO CAMERA TRACKING

EZtrack® schema
Operating like a “Hub”, the EZtrack® 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!
