Ncam Technologies, a developer of real-time augmented reality technology for the media and entertainment industries, today announced the latest version of its camera tracking solution, Ncam Reality 2019.1, will debut in Latin America at SET EXPO 2019.
Nic Hatch, CEO, Ncam, said, “This new release offers smart and efficient solutions to many of the common challenges faced by Augmented Reality (AR) users, as well as providing a raft of new features that will greatly enhance AR projects, whether for VFX pre-visualisation, real-time VFX, virtual production, or live real-time broadcast graphics. We’re excited to demonstrate these new capabilities and show visitors what is now possible with photo-realistic augmented reality graphics,” he added.
First showcased at NAB 2019, Ncam Reality 2019.1 is a new release that includes more than 80 new features as well as significant system optimisation for improved performance and enhanced capabilities. The new version of Ncam Reality sees added support for the Extreme Camera Bar, an additional functionality that enables users to track environments that are subject to dynamic lighting changes. This new feature is useful for productions using practical effects, explosions, moving lights, and fast lighting changes.
Lens profiling of cine lenses and calibration of the Ncam Reality camera bar has also been refined to improve tracking quality and speed up the setup process. The number of supported video capture cards has also increased with the addition of support for Blackmagic Design’s DecLink SDI 4K video card supplementing the existing support for AJA Corvid 44 and Kona 4 video cards.
