Ncam has unveiled Ncam Reality 2021, which it says is the “most advanced real-time tracking technology ever created for film, broadcast and live events”.

Ncam Reality 2021 provides everything needed for real-time camera tracking, including a Mk2 Camera Bar, Mk2 Server and Ncam Reality 2021 software.

The Mk2 Camera Bar offers advanced tracking indoors and out, using a lightweight design that fits on any camera. The Ncam Reality 2021 system enables users to track on any camera, lens or rig, regardless of environment, says Ncam.

It integrates with Unreal Engine and has native support for LED walls, providing “an essential ingredient for virtual production, allowing VFX teams to explore virtual locations, character designs and shot options with the director and cinematographer much earlier in the process,” says Ncam.

Nic Hatch, CEO of Ncam, said: “Covid-19 forced all of us to rethink how content gets created, from safety requirements to the logistics of working from home. The beauty of virtual graphics is their flexibility. With the right tracking equipment, you can visualise live XR, real-time CGI, set extensions and more directly in-camera, onsite or remotely, giving productions a way to stay on track during trying times.”
