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.

In an industry first, to achieve the best accuracy, PluralEyes 3.5 now includes the unique ability to correct sync drift where the audio and video begin to lose sync over time on longer clips. This lets it achieve frame-accurate syncs even for audio recorders that don’t have that level of accuracy themselves.

Review: Bayan Audio StreamPort Universal

Bayan's StreamPort Universal uses Bluetooth and NFC to pair up.Pairing up legacy audio devices might be part of your day to day working life, especially when you're in other people's studios or premises. You want something portable, maybe battery powered and that is quick to achieve a sound. Bayan Audio's StreamPort Universal might be that product. Apart from the battery powered side of things, it's only mains powered, the StreamPort ticks all the boxes. It's well made, as little as an Apple TV box and is pretty idiot proof to pair up to your hand/mobile device.
