The Ncam Reality Solution
Ncam Reality comprises the revolutionary Reality 2021 software with the innovative Mk2 hardware.
Ncam Reality 2021 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
