Costs are kept to a minimum by using existing equipment, enabling flexible usage of any support system, a fast and easy setup, indoor as well as outdoor usage: this is the most affordable solution as a first step into Virtual Set graphics applications.
no calibration of markers needed
The specific point pattern itself is designed by TrackMen to suit your needs perfectly. The exact position of each marker on the coded floor remains unchanged, regardless of where you are placing the coded floor. Since the marker positions are well known to the tracking algorithm, there is no need for a calibration of marker points. The coded floor is pre-calibrated and always ready to use. Whenever the point pattern becomes visible, VioTrack F begins to take effect immediately - no waiting time and no initialization procedure is required.
Indoor and outdoor productions, permanent or portable setups
Whether you are working inside your studio environment or outdoors, you just need to roll out the VioTrack F coded floor and you can start working immediately. You can fixate the coded floor to the ground in a permanent production environment. You can also move it to any location for a portable solution. Due to the flexible setup and working principle, VioTrack F enables you to quickly change the shooting location. The different options of the coded floor designs afford an unlimited freedom of use for any production.
invisible coded floor
The coded floor only needs to cover the area in which the cameras are moving, not the area which is covered by the talent. As a result the coded floor is usually not visible to the broadcast cameras. It can also be covered by a virtual garbage mask or made invisible by chroma-keying when using a blue/green box.
In the case of show environments with vastly changing lights or low light situations you can choose the VioTrack F infrared setup, where an additional LED light ring illuminates the regular coded floor with infrared light. Even better, you can also make use of a special floor material which makes the point patternsinvisible to the human eye andto the broadcast cameras!
choose optimal VioTrack F version depending on your needs
We offer VioTrack F in two versions depending on your budget and application:
- F1 We designed VioTrack F1 for cameras with a very limited moving range. Here, the coded floor has a fixed size of 2x2 meters. You can obtain this version for a price which is comparable to that of a pan-tilt head which is equipped with encoders. However, with VioTrackF1 you have a higher freedom of movement. Even possible for the use of hand-held cameras.
- F2 We designed VioTrack F2 for an unlimited camera tracking range. Here, the coded floor may have any size and shape depending on the size of your studio and the required tracking area.
