Ventuz Technology Reveals Ncam Live Partnership

News Image
Ventuz Technology has revealed it is integrating with Ncam Live to offer easy-to-use Virtual Studio and Augmented Reality workflows for Broadcast and ProAV environments.

The pairing provides a streamlined tracking data workflow between the multi-sensor camera tracking Ncam Live system and the 3D Ventuz content.

Ncam offers camera tracking that does not require a complicated setup or any markers in the environment. Instead, the technology automatically identifies and tracks natural features via its multi-sensor bar which is mounted to the main shooting camera.

The setup makes the system ideal for camera tracking on location or shoulder-held shots and provides a level of flexibility that has been the key to the company's success and its rapid adoption by broadcasters and filmmakers worldwide. The system has been used for some of the most advanced and revolutionary augmented reality projects in recent years.

David Paniego, Product Marketing Manager of Ventuz Technology, said: "The flexible nature of the Ncam system makes it the perfect partner for the Ventuz software suite.

"This marriage of technology isn't only applicable to the broadcast market though, as we also see an increased interest from the professional AV industry.

“Being able to integrate with the Ncam camera tracking data is a fantastic addition to the Ventuz workflow. Not only did we experience a very fruitful cooperation with the Ncam team, we also believe that the combination of our products is a perfect fit for Augmented Reality and Virtual Studio projects of any kind.

"This falls in line with the recently introduced Live-Link between Cinema 4D and Ventuz, and the improved material engine for more realistic results. All together Ventuz 5 is well equipped for better-looking augmented and virtual projects."

Nic Hatch, CEO of Ncam, added: " Ventuz is a trusted, cutting-edge, real-time software provider for both broadcast and AV markets, with a very similar dynamic and innovative approach to AR/VR technology as Ncam, hence why this partnership makes sense for everyone. With the Ventuz integration, we can provide our customers a richer VR/AR workflow experience and it will also allow us to tap into new markets."
