Xync 2.0—Get extremely accurate and flexible infrared tracking
Track every move with precision
Xync 2.0 is a new and extremely flexible infrared tracking system that provides unmatched performance and accuracy for live productions. Freely move a camera anywhere within your virtual or conventional studio without limits—even with multi-camera productions. From low-angle shots, 360-degree pans, and close-ups, to crane movement and handheld camera shots while zooming in or out, your possibilities—and vantage points—are endless.
Work with your existing studio cameras
Xync 2.0 supports a wide variety of broadcast cameras, lenses, and tripods, so you can easily integrate multiple camera configurations without reliance on third-party technologies. With its 360-degree shooting range, Xync supports an unlimited number of pedestal, dolly, handheld, steady-cam, and crane-mounted cameras, giving you great flexibility—and freedom of movement—within your environment.
Track in real time
Xync processes all tracking information from all camera parameters, including the XYZ position, zoom, tilt, pan, focus, and roll settings. Using a series of sophisticated algorithms, it analyzes the data, determines the value of each variable, and feeds the tracking data directly to your Maestro | Virtual Set (formerly ProSet) and/or Maestro | AR (formerly RealSet) system—all in real time—for the most fluid motion and accuracy.
Experience seamless performance
With only a negligible two frames of total delay for the entire system, you can create complex virtual studio environments filled with 3D virtual objects and video, and operate with the confidence of delivering a smooth performance every time. Even inserting multiple full-res videos won’t add additional delay to the system.
Get complete reliability
Not only is Xync highly accurate, it’s incredibly reliable too. Its fully redundant architecture minimizes any single point of failure. To generate sufficient tracking information, it only requires that three light sources be visible—out of a total 16 available on each target—using two ceiling-mounted surveillance cameras. And it delivers dependable performance no matter how high or low the ceiling.
