Orad and Kronomav collaborate on robotised curved dolly


Orad, a provider of real-time 3D broadcast graphic, video server, and media asset
management solutions, and Spanish Technological Company Kronomav have added
the Kronomav K2 robotised curved dolly to the list of Orad Virtual Studio and
Augmented Reality, and Kronomav robotic system integrations. With support for
curved tracking, broadcasters have the ability to move within the studio on a
straight and curved rail, opening up endless possibilities for creating rich virtual
studio productions and immersive graphics for real studios.

A long-time Orad technology partner, Kronomav designed a new protocol that
provides Orad tracking systems with the required real-time tracking position and
orientation of the K2 robotised dolly. The new protocol features an easy-to-use
wizard that allows users to move the dolly in different pre-defined locations on the
rail. The system’s absolute encoders are integrated in the K2 dolly, ensuring all
relevant tracking data is sent to the Orad tracking system. Orad’s Tracking Set
application receives the tracking data and transmits it to its HDVG rendering
platform, allowing the graphics to be positioned anywhere in the studio, while the
camera moves along the rails.

“Our joint customers have been asking for curved tracking support and they will be
incredibly pleased with the high-quality integration Orad and Kronomav offer,’
comments Avi Sharir, CEO and president of Orad.

Antonio Carrion, 3D R&D at Kronomav, commented on the new integration, “The
integration with Orad and all Kronomav’s K2 accessories and curve track
combinations delivers the same level of exceptional accuracy that our respective
customers have come to expect from our collaborative solutions. The advanced
integration provides best-in-class curved tracking capabilities for broadcasters
employing just about any tracking workflow scenario.”
