CAMERA TRACKING WITH EZtrack®
CONSULTANCY FOR VIRTUAL STUDIO SETUP
EZtrack® is our latest camera tracking system; an innovative combination of Valve's SteamVR™ 2.0 technology and SolidAnim's proven tools for Virtual Production. The system is based on a compact and transportable central unit, operated by an 100% Web-based
intuitive interface. The solution offers precise tracking, image synchronization, zoom/focus data
processing, communication with real-time 3D rendering engines such as Unreal Engine, Unity and Zero
Density, as well as multi-axis support.
Its applications meet all virtual production needs from today: -Virtual studio setup for live-to-air shows and augmented reality (AR) shows - Camera tracking: fixed and portable cameras, trolleys, small cranes, dollies - Object tracking: insertion of 3D resources, virtual accessories - Actor or talent tracking: automatic depth compositing

Combining EZtrack®, our latest proprietary camera tracking technology with a full range of dedicated services, our Virtual Production department will provide you with tailor-made support for every kind of
project, regardless of its size or complexity: creation of 3D content (virtual sets, animated characters,
computer graphics), consultancy for building-up a custom virtual studio configuration from scratch or
on-demand camera tracking. Mastering our own “hybrid” toolchain for Virtual Production which does combine live shots with realtime 3D inlays in full Augmented Reality (AR), our team also delivers seamless service delivery for OnSet operations:
> ON-SET PREVIS FOR CINEMA AND THE MOVIE INDUSTRY We use the tracking data generated by EZtrack® to provide on Director’s monitor a composite image
with realtime 3D props, environments, and assets in rough level of details. Hence, these augmented
sequences will need post-production work (lighting, clipping, tracking, VFX), yet efforts will remain
limited thanks to the virtual assets our team would have created in the first place, at time of the preproduction stage. > 3D CREATION & COMPOSITING FOR LIVE-TO-AIR SHOWS Our inhouse artistic department can deliver “final” composited frames, being camera tracked while
integrating realtime 3D content in AR at the same time: virtual sets, animated characters or even
computer graphics, ready to be live broadcasted for TV, entertainment and live-to-air shows.
Working as consultancy experts for Virtual Production, our team can assist you on the best approach to adopt for deploying your own virtual studio configuration, in considering your existing production
needs. We especially play a role in advising on the technical side for both software and hardware
elements, regarding: > GREEN SCREEN & CYCLORAMA DEPLOYMENT With an extensive experience in Motion Capture and green screen-based productions, our team will
advise you on the most adapted virtual studio set-up. We can also make our existing equipment
available for specific projects, thanks to our two large stages, being fully equipped all year round in
Paris and Angoulême areas, France.
> CHROMATIC KEYER Whether it is hardware or software-based, we can help you to choose the most adapted chroma keyer
solution for every kind of applications such as live compositing. > REAL-TIME 3D RENDERING As real-time 3D experts since many years, we can advise you on the preferred PC hardware
configuration and 3D rendering stations for processing pre-production, live compositing and postproduction steps. We are mastering the most awarded real-time 3D rendering technologies being used
in virtual productions nowadays: Unreal Engine, Unity 3D and Zero Density.
