Another unmatched feature of the Stype kit is its ability to automatically aim and focus the point in 3D space. This feature comes in extremely useful when working with the virtual graphics because it allows the crane operator to aim and focus on an object that isn’t physically present in studio. You will experience a significant return on investment (ROI) using our system. Being able to use augmented graphics or a virtual studio with green/blue screen makes the physical studio space extremely reusable since the only thing that has to be changed are the computer graphics.
STYPE KIT – TRACKLESS 3D VIRTUAL STUDIO AND AUGMENTED REALITY SYSTEM
With the Stype kit, you can turn the industry standard camera crane – Stanton Jimmy Jib – into an encoded crane capable of data tracking and virtual output to industry’s leading render engines. Precise coordinates of the camera head in 3D space are tracked and sent to render engines such as Vizrt, Orad or Marketgraph. Using this positional data, any computer generated objects or animations can seamlessly be added to a real life set – thus creating an augmented reality set. This principle can also be used with a green or blue screen for virtual studio sets.
Black waterproof aluminum housing guarantees the longevity of the console and makes it suitable for work in various environments and conditions. LED emitting buttons serve both for communication with the user and aesthetic appearance of the console especially in darker studios.
- INDUSTRY STANDARD
Works with industry standard camera crane – Stanton Jimmy Jib USA
It is able to send calculated positions of camera CCD chip position and orientation or just RAW encoder data
It takes into consideration pan angle, tilt angle, roll angle, travel on dolly, zoom focus angles.
- STAND ALONE SYSTEM
Doesn’t require any additional equipment such as special floor surfaces, sensors, markers, or even green or blue screens
- REAL TIME DATA OUTPUT
All encoder positions are processed within 1 msec providing no lag or delay while sending files towards the graphic system
- AUTOMATIC AIMING AND FOCUSING
Aiming and focusing process can be fully automated. No more out-of-focus images while you swing the arm. Try zooming in completely!
Just Imagine what you could do with it
Paul Slater, director at Fox sports Australia talks about the Stype kit and its augmented reality capabilities
In this interview Paul Slater, director at Fox sports Australia, talks about their new NRL season and how they used the Stype kit in combination with Vizrt to achieve some amazing augmented reality visuals for their real time studio shows.
“We looked at the Stype system, it was a fantastic price for something that was costing ten times more from companies that have been doing this in the past.”
The Stype kit, together with an encoded Stanton Jimmy Jib camera crane, provided Fox sports Australia a trackless 3D virtual/augmented reality studio capabilities while Vizrt delivered astonishing 3D computer graphics and animations.
“We’ve been really surprised and really happy with how well it worked and everybody who sees it is amazed by its results.”
Possible areas of application
Possible areas of application for the Stype kit are (but not limited to): Talk shows, Live news, Election news, Sportcasts, Game shows. It can be utilized to achieve engaging visuals for the audience and create compelling TV shows.
