CEI To Represent Hybrid’s Trackless 3D Virtual Studio Solution
Hybrid (Booth C9908), a provider of real-time graphics and robotic camera systems, has signed an agreement under which Communications Engineering Inc. (CEI) will represent the Hybrid brand in the Americas, with particular focus on Hybrid’s Neon trackless 3D virtual studio solution. CEI will provide sales and technical support for Hybrid’s line of virtual studio and robotic camera products.
Designed to be a user-friendly system simply requiring software running on a PC, Neon supports up to five live HD/SD camera inputs and can be controlled via Hybrid’s Ozone software controller or through BPI I/O production switchers, such as Broadcast Pix, Sony, or Grass Valley switchers.
Rather than camera tracking and calibration, the Neon 3D virtual-studio solution enables virtual camera movements in real time from fixed cameras on-set. The 3D virtual scenes are photo-realistic and anti-aliased. Users can either use Neon’s set-design tools or import virtual sets created using 3D Max, Maya, Softimage, or other common modeling software.
Besides Neon, Hybrid’s exhibit features the flagship Krypton 3D tracking virtual-studio solution, Chrome broadcast robotic jib, and robotic camera systems.
