» Supports all major render engines as well as custom protocols.
» Works with Stanton Jimmy, CamMate and Super Techno cranes
What is this?
» Automatic aiming and focusing.
Stype kit is a bolt-on camera tracking system for a camera crane. The system does not require any additional external sensors or infra-red cameras to deliver precise positional data of the camera in 3D space. Stype kit is specially designed, so there is no need for any physical modifications of the camera crane. This guarantees for fast setup times and even enables producers to use it on different broadcast locations throughout the day. On top of that, Stype kit is exceptionally portable, and that makes it perfect for outside virtual reality broadcast.
Top level broadcasters, including the BBC, Fox Sports, MTV and many others, are already enjoying all the benefits of using the Stype kit. The system can be paired with any render engine currently available on the market including Vizrt, Orad, Wasp3D, RT software, BrainStorm, XPression, Chyron Hego.
Stype kit has a powerful lens calibration feature that sets a new standard of quality and lets clients focus more on the creative aspect of the project and less on technicalities. The calibration is done within the Stype kit console. Add to this Stype kit’s automatic aiming and focusing (targeting) feature and you get a robust camera tracking system that is easy to setup, calibrate and use while producing professional results every time.

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. Let us go through some of the advantages of using the Stype kit:
*If a crane is on rails, additional time is needed to level the rails properly
We encode the camera crane movement by placing Stype kit’s sensors on all pivot points of the crane. Sensors collect X, Y and Z movement along with Pan, Tilt, Roll, Zoom, Focus and Travel on Dolly. This positional data is then processed and sent to the render engine for compositing the real footage with virtual graphics – in real time.
