VIVE Mars CamTrack is a professional-class camera tracking solution that makes virtual production extremely portable and easy. In this interview, Ray from VIVE Mars CamTrack talks about virtual reality setups and how they’re revolutionizing Hollywood productions.
VIVE Mars CamTrack is a higher-quality tracking experience that offers pro features required for success in greenscreen or on an LED volume. It costs $5,000 and comes with three rovers so you can track up to three devices. The sky is the limit as it relates to this product.
VIVE Mars CamTrack can support up to four base stations and track volumes of about 10×10 meters. The positional data calculation occurs on the Mars box itself, so the only thing going into your environment is just the positional data stream, rather than the actual compute itself.
The setup is fast and portable, and teams can set it up in about 15-20 minutes. The product is ideal for marketers and content creators looking to elevate their virtual reality game.
The Mars FIZTrack was announced at the NAB 2023 expo. It is a lens encoder that allows you to push FIZ (focus, iris, and zoom) directly into the rover unit, and that data goes directly back into your comp. The Mars FIZTrack is expected to launch in Q3 of this year.
Overall, VIVE Mars CamTrack is a game-changing technology that is transforming virtual production and making it accessible to a wider audience.
