Zero Density releases Traxis talentS AI-powered talent-tracking system
Zero Density has released Traxis talentS, an industry-first AI-powered markerless stereoscopic talent-tracking system that can identify people inside a 3D virtual environment without any wearables.
TalentS is the first product of Zero Density’s new brand Traxis, with which the company aims to address the challenges of tracking and emphasise its approach to creating new possibilities in virtual production.
Deploying talentS makes beacons or wearables – which talent had to wear to track their movement –obsolete, thus giving more flexibility and ease of movement in virtual studios.
With cutting-edge AI algorithms and the power of Nvidia’s GPU Tensor Cores, talentS extracts the talent’s 3D location from the image with precision. It sends the tracking data to Reality Engine to create accurate reflections, refractions and the virtual shadows of the talent inside the 3D space.
Designed by live production experts, talentS is said to work 24/7 continuously without any interruptions. It sends data through the industry-standard FreeD protocol and integrates with the Reality ecosystem and any other FreeD speaking platform, out of the box.
Traxis talentS can be utilised in applications besides virtual studios, such as augmented reality in sports and live events. For example, with talentS AR graphics for statistics can be enhanced above a boxer during a live boxing match. It can also enable robotic lights to track a specific dancer during live performance automatically.
talentS is a lightweight system that can be installed on a truss or mounted on a tripod. It comes with the necessary mounting kit and safety cables to assist in safe installation. It also comes as a pre-calibrated and preinstalled system for ease of setup.
