ONE HUB, SEVERAL TRACKING COMBOS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF

Get the opportunity to combine the EZtrack® Hub with world-class tracking standards and sensor technologies that can be easily hot-plugged and switched on the fly, according to your set configuration, cameras rig or specific shooting requirements. This is a real game changer!

oARo’s R&D team is cooking-up one unique blend of camera tracking features, opening new horizons for all Virtual Production enthusiasts, studios, and creative teams looking for getting the most out of their Virtual Studio!

EZtrack® Hub is already compatible with most of the tracking standards hereafter, and will soon be compliant with the entire list:

oARo’s R&D team is proud to announce that EZtrack® can be combined with Antilatency ; virtual production enthusiast can now experience a unique set of technical features at their fingertips. The first ever Hub for camera tracking can now enjoy the smallest 6DOF positional tracker in the World!

LEVEL-UP IN PRECISION

An efficient combination of custom tracker and IRbased layout of markers, when both paired with EZtrack® premium features, will provide altogether high precision to track your cameras rig. The Alt tracker does understand its position accurately as it is based on the inertial measurement unit (IMU), with dynamic correction of the optical data.

EXPAND YOUR TRACKING AREA

Design your own tracking area without restrictions on scale: based on an intuitive puzzle-like construction of the foam floor, your camera tracking area can easily be set up to 100×100m and created according to any custom shape desired. User can either choose a floorbased or ceiling-based setup for the IR-markers installation.

Opt for Antilatency or EZtrack® supported tracking technologies depending on your virtual set configuration. Get the best camera tracking features as you can now experiment Antilatency’s world smallest 6DOF positional tracker combined with EZtrack® comprehensive features for Virtual Studio:

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

CAMERA TRACKING

OVER IP

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

Our standard and most common tracking package that features very limited hardware!
It has been designed for mastering virtual studio conditions without many reflective surfaces while

promising no markers, free camera moves and multiaxes tracking.

Every EZtrack® Hub System Unit can handle up to 1 camera rig and up to 2 objects or live talents tracking.

TRACKING OUT OF THE BOX

Our standard SteamVR/Lighthouse-based Studio Bundle integrates:
– The EZtrack® Hub System Unit,
– x4 Base Stations,
– x3 Trackers,
– x1 camera mounting system,
– x1 lens cable (Canon/Fujinon/Angénieux
available)
– Various DC adapters and mountings screws

The system is provided inside its compact Pelicase™: highly transportable and ready to be unboxed on your set!

Vive Trackers. EZtrack® is compatible with either 2.0 or 3.0 version
Main EZtrack® Hub Unit
Lighthouse V2.0 Base Stations
Cable lens for encoded lenses from Canon, Fujinon, Angénieux
Up to 4 base stations are supported per single system unit. Each EZtrack® Hub Unit can operate only one camera axis and one 3D rendering station at the same time.

If multiple camera axis need to be tracked on set, then the corresponding EZtrack® Hub units and 3D rendering stations will have to be set-up accordingly.

Base stations emit infrared to dynamically localize trackers within the tracking area.

Each base station covers 160° horizontally, 115° vertically, up to 7 meters for signal acquisition.

The 3D pose estimation is done using swept angle laser tracking and IMU fusion based on the SteamVR™ Tracking V2.0 (Lighthouse) technology from Valve Corporation.

COMMUTABLE SENSOR UNITS

Hot plug your sensors on the fly and mix them with the latest Vive 3.0 as you can use alternative units such as the Manus SteamVR Pro Tracker developed by Manus VR and the Tundra Tracker developed by Tundra Labs to take advantage of the last generation sensor cells!

100% WEB-BASED INTERFACE

– Unique WebApp provided to entirely remote control the system.

– Intuitive interface displaying all tracking information centralized in one-tab screen.

– Accessible from any computer on the studio network, even from your smartphone or tablet!

– Rest API included for custom pipeline integration.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE HYBRID TRACKING FOR YOUR PTZ CAMERAS!

Track the position of any PTZ AW-UE150 at a given time, in space, and combine it with the sensor-tracked information acquired over the main EZtrack® Hub.

MIX STATIC PTZs WITH MOVING ONES

Take advantage of the Hybrid tracking that mixes both mechanical and optical technologies: build a very customized cameras rig as you can experience far more possibilities to move and operate your PTZs on-set, while mixing them to other types of cameras.

ADD ROLL & XYZ INFO TO YOUR PTZ

As complement to the traditional pan/tilt/zoom/focus data of the FreeD’s PTZ, thanks to EZtrack® custom electronics, you can now aggregate both the ‘Roll’ and the ‘XYZ’ incrementations into a main FreeD signal, so it can be read by your favorite 3D engine.

AND STILL ONE SINGLE FREE-D SIGNAL

Aggregate over the main EZtrack’s FreeD signal ALL useful information of pan/tilt/roll/zoom/focus/iris.

Request information
Positional tracker as Vive V2 or V3 or any other compatible tracker
Support of the widely used PTZ AWUE150 Series over the FreeD protocol
Track all movements of your PTZ 150 when mounted itself on a Jib or crane

MODULAR HYBRID TRACKING, WITHOUT ADDITIONAL HARDWARE

PANASONIC PTZ AW-UE150 Series

Transform any of your static PTZ 150 into a mobile camera rig that will be live tracked over any Jib or crane! EZtrack® Hub will natively read and acquire the FreeD signal coming from the PTZ camera itself.

EZtrack® Hub

As the central node of the cameras rig, the EZtrack® Hub will combine two FreeD signals: the one from the PTZ and the one generated by the Vive sensor. At the end, ALL information of pan/tilt/roll/zoom/focus/iris are combined into one single FreeD signal that will be read into your 3D render engine.

Vive Sensor

Track the position of your Jib or Crane, at any given time, in space: you just need to mount the compatible sensor (like a Vive Tracker) on the crane and close to the PTZ. Set the proper offsets along with few parameters in the EZtrack® interface, and you are ready to start tracking your AW-UE150 PTZ camera!
Vicon, Qualisys and OptiTrack™, as famous Motion Capture standards being used to perform on-set cameras tracking on large LED-based installations such as ILM StageCraft for the latter, will soon be compatible with our EZtrack® Hub unit!

Yet to be released as a specific ‘MOCAP EDITION’, our R&D team is working hard right now to bring studios worldwide an amazing set of features for their live stages:

– Live lens data acquisition for zoom/focus
– Genlock support across the cameras rig
– Unified interface & Live Link Plugin for Unreal Engine
– Camera tracking over IP

Stay tuned for more information and the official announcement of our EZtrack® MOCAP EDITION!
