Virtual production technology company Ncam has teamed up with broadcast graphics company Vizrt and digital camera company Red for the second time at NAB to demonstrate a new real-time 4K camera tracking and rendering system.

On its NAB booth Vizrt will be showing high precision, immersive graphics integrated with live 4K pictures from a handheld camera.

The demonstration, which will be a new, improved version of the system it showed off at last year's event, will show a handheld Red Epic Dragon camera fitted with an Ncam Vision tracking system shooting 4K images at Vizrt’s booth.

These images will then be processed through Vizrt’s real-time 3D compositing system, Viz Engine, which adds virtual elements to create an immersive augmented reality experience of 4K live video aired in real time.

The 4K video passes through Viz Engine using Matrox X.mio3 I/O hardware and the graphics are added to the video with the new NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics card. The output will be shown on a Christie Quad HD 84” display.

The combined setup offers the ability to create immersive graphics tied to a freely moving camera, at full 4K resolution, and allows operators to capture quick shots at any location.

In turn, producers have the ability to very quickly set up a shot from any location, with immersive graphics added for branding and production values.
