Overview

With the Stype kit, you can turn the industry standard camera crane – Stanton Jimmy Jib – into an encoded camera crane capable of data tracking and virtual output to industry’s leading render engines such as Vizrt, Orad and others. Using this positional data, any computer generated object or animation can be seamlessly added into 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. You can use the Stype kit for inside or outside broadcast and achieve immersive 3D broadcast graphics more easily than ever.

Move the camera in 3D space without limitations using crane arms with up to 10m (30ft) reach and dolly on rails. Create breathtaking shots which, incorporated with immersive 3D broadcast graphics, will raise the production value of your show and engage your audience in a compelling way. Easily transform your ordinary studio into a virtual studio with green/blue screen or simply implement 3D broadcast graphics directly in the real life set.

 

Simplified Configuration Scheme

Stype kit’s main console receives positional data of the camera in 3D space and sends it in real time to the render engine of choice. Such information includes PAN/TILT/ROLL of the head, FOCUS&ZOOM from the camera, PAN/TILT of the camera crane’s arm. You can even put the crane on rails and receive virtual data along this axis too for ultimate flexibility.

Why Stype kit?

We believe that broadcast graphics should offer a relevant addition to the scene and subtly add to the quality of the show in whole. It should aid the viewer in understanding the complex data and drive engagement by adding stunning effects to it. We are aware of the challenges of creating and maintaining a demanding show with complex realtime 3D broadcast graphics.

We designed the Stype kit having all this in mind. You can integrate the Stype kit in your production pipeline fast and intuitive. Our main concern is to eliminate redundant actions and make the learning curve as steep as possible. This gives you more time to work on the creative process of designing the show not worrying about technical stuff too much.

We keep a close ear to our client’s wishes and our engineers observations and implement them in each new upgrade thus removing the unnecessary steps and giving the production crew a satisfied grin on their face. Best part is – upgrades can be retrofitted to all our older systems over the internet.
