To highlight a couple  of its most recent innovations,  for broadcast in-stadium, MRMC’s new Polycam Chat solution simplifies and augments the small-scale studio environment with artificial intelligence, while minimising footprint and production costs. The system uses limb detection to provide consistent and natural camera motion, ensuring a high end professional look.

Using ChyronHego’s TRACAB player tracking solution, Polycam Player physically moves the camera and adjusts the zoom and focus to automatically keep the team or the player in the frame. As well as fully automated camera motion, Polycam Player also provides full manual control of each camera position, together with mixed user/automated control.
