Vitec Videocom, the broadcast division of the Vitec Group, has partnered with Vizrt
to strengthen the global reach of Ncam’s real-time virtual camera tracking
technology. The agreement is effective immediately.
Ncam Live is a unique camera tracking solution that offers broadcast productions
virtual and augmented graphic technology without limits. The device uses a
lightweight sensor bar attached to a camera to track natural markers in the
environment, allowing the camera to move freely in all locations while generating a
continuous stream of extremely precise positional information that can feed all
industry standard graphics engines.
Ncam’s virtual tracking technology is the only of its kind that has been proven in the
broadcast industry with major broadcasters around the world such as the Weather
Channel, ESPN, AMP Visual TV, FOX, TV Globo and the NFL having recently
implemented the solution.
“We have worked with Ncam for more than two years since they were the first
company on the market with unrestricted augmented reality capabilities,” said
Francois Laborie, Vizrt CCO. “When doing outdoor augmented reality, no other
system has proven to be as stable and robust, making Ncam an obvious choice as a
preferred partner for real-time virtual tracking technology. Together we have taken
part in the world’s most high-profile events and I look forward to bringing more
integrated solutions to the market that will benefit our customers in the future.”
“Vizrt’s global reach and premium market position in live graphics are a perfect
match for Ncam,’ said Nic Hatch, CEO of Ncam. “They are in a fantastic position to
sell and support the growth of our technology in the broadcast industry. We are
confident this end-to-end graphics workflow solution will thrive with broadcasters.
Vizrt will sell, service and support Ncam products worldwide as part of the
