Augmented Reality is where simulated visuals are overlaid onto a live video signal, in front of other scenic elements or actors, sometimes called the “front plate”
Camera tracking provides real-time positioning data for the camera’s x/y/z orientation in relation to a home position, as well as data for tilt, pan and roll and lens data for focus and zoom. Multiple cameras can be tracked and calibrated at the same time for seamless transitions between shots. PRG´s camera tracking systems: Stype RedSpy, Ncam®, OptiTrack
