The Ncam Reality Solution

Ncam Reality comprises the revolutionary Reality 2022 software combined with the innovative modular Mk2 hardware.

Ncam Reality 2022 introduces our ‘Hybrid’ tracking, enabling unique flexibility and accuracy offering the ability to track any environment, whether you’re on an LED smart stage, full green screen studio or outdoors in a street or on a soccer field. The choice is yours.

Ncam Reality Core Features


Ncam's ‘Hybrid Tracking’ capabilities enable the ability to mix natural features, fiducial objects and reflective markers meaning industry leading accuracy and flexibility, in one single product.


Track any camera, with any lens, on any rig, in any environment, whether on LED stages or green screens, urban streets or football fields. The choice is yours.


Unrivalled setup time with no requirement for time consuming learning or surveying of the environment. Ncam Reality learns its environment automatically and in real-time with no volume or space limitations, large or small.

Plug ’n’ Play

6DOF camera tracking, FIZ and distortion combined in a single synchronised data stream. Includes lens distortion for spherical, zoom and anamorphic lenses and support for all smart lens systems including Zeiss eXtended data, Cooke /i, Arri LDS. Also supports follow focus solutions including Preston, Cmotion, Arri, Teradek etc.


Control Ncam Reality via a simple web based user interface, enabling complete remote control through IP. The UI can be accessed wirelessly via your phone, tablet and PC, simultaneously.


Connect to Ncam’s real-time datastream via the SDK. Ncam is compatible with all real-time render engines and platforms including Brainstorm, Disguise, Pixotope, Unreal Engine and Vizrt. Ncam Reality ships with AR Suite Lite, offering a complete solution for live-to-air virtual sets, mixed reality and virtual production integration with Unreal Engine



Ncam’s automatic tracking combines natural features, reflective markers and fiducial markers simultaneously, making it the perfect choice for any location with any combo of camera and lens. Track handheld, Steadicam, cranes, a dolly or on a gimbal. The combinations are endless.

Ncam Reality 2022 includes lens mapping for all lens types, supporting spherical and anamorphic lenses, plus compatibility with follow focus systems and smart lenses.

Full Unreal Engine integration is also included with Ncam Reality through the Ncam AR Suite (link to AR Suite).

Simplified calibration, improved connectivity, optional automatic online software updates.

More about 2022 Software


Introducing the new multi-sensor Mk2 Camera Bar + Mk2 Server, vastly reducing the size and weight from the Mk1 setup. The camera bar weighs in at only 288g, over 1kg lighter than Mk1! The server is also small, light (992g) and robust enough to be mounted directly onto a camera rig.

With built-in wifi, the added wireless connectivity allows devices to access and control Ncam with more flexibility than ever before.
