Markerless Tracking Technology Brings Down Cost Of VR

zlense claim that their rig can be used by most cameras.zLense has launched a depth-mapping camera solution that captures 3D data and scenery in real-time and adds a 3D layer. The technology processes space information, making  new and real three-dimensional compositing methods possible, enabling production teams to create 3D effects and use CGI in live TV or pre-recorded transmissions - with no special studio set up.

The system is similar to one that was introduced last year at IBC by FilmLight. Ncam, a company backed partly by FilmLight was demonstrating real-time visualisation of immersive 3D/CG graphics content in-camera while shooting at IBC on FilmLight’s stand.
