Orad and Kronomav Bring Curved Tracking to Virtual Studios
Orad and Kronomav have added the Kronomav K2 robotized curved dolly to the list of Orad Virtual Studio and Augmented Reality, and Kronomav robotic system integrations. With support for curved tracking, broadcasters have the ability to move within the studio on a straight and curved rail, opening up endless possibilities for creating rich virtual studio productions and immersive graphics for real studios.
A long-time Orad technology partner, Kronomav designed a new protocol that provides Orad tracking systems with the required real-time tracking position and orientation of the K2 robotized dolly. The new protocol features an easy-to-use wizard that allows users to move the dolly in different predefined locations on the rail. The system’s absolute encoders are integrated in the K2 dolly, ensuring all relevant tracking data is sent to the Orad tracking system. Orad’s Tracking Set application receives the tracking data and transmits it to its HDVG rendering platform, allowing the graphics to be positioned anywhere in the studio, while the camera moves along the rails.
“Our joint customers have been asking for curved tracking support and they will be incredibly pleased with the high-quality integration Orad and Kronomav offer,” says Avi Sharir, CEO of Orad. “Orad has built its reputation on exceeding customer expectations, and the level of integration and performance offered with the Orad-Kronomav joint effort is right in line with this philosophy.”
