Product Highlights

Camera Tracking Hardware
  • Xync 2.0 infrared system
  • Pattern Recognition system
  • Opto-mechanical sensors
  • Get seamless virtual studio integration
  • Get unmatched tracking accuracy with our new Xync 2.0 system. Comprised of all-new high-resolution surveillance camera hardware and software, Xync 2.0 offers a larger multi-camera tracking area, so it requires fewer surveillance cameras. With a full 360-degree range of movement, you gain free mobility within any virtual or conventional studio, enabling you to produce the most realistic virtual studio and augmented reality productions.
  • Avid's Pattern Recognition system is undoubtedly the most cost-effective tracking system available and is ideal for entry-level systems, as well as studios with a relatively large number of cameras. Pattern Recognition tracking is compatible with all types of studio cameras and lenses, and supports multi-camera productions.
  • Mounted on a pedestal or tripod, the opto-mechanical sensor offers an extremely precise and high-resolution solution for fixed position camera shots. Sensor heads retrieve the pan and tilt parameters of the camera’s movement, providing 360-degree shooting range.
  • Production efficiency is one of the key advantages that virtual studio production has over conventional sets. In addition to integrating with Maestro | Virtual Set (formerly ProSet) and Maestro | AR (formerly RealSet), our camera tracking solutions integrate and interact seamlessly with a wide range of robotic cameras, remote controlled sensor-based heads, robotic cranes, and pedestals. All you need is a single operator to run the entire production, providing huge cost savings.
