Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Ncam launches new Mk2 camera bar at IBC2019

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

London, UK – 13 September 2019 – Ncam Technologies, the leading developer of real-time augmented reality technology for the media and entertainment industries, today announced an exciting new model of its award-winning camera bar – the Mk2.

Ncam has partnered with the Intel® RealSense™ group to create the completely redesigned bar which is smaller and lighter than its predecessor.

The Mk2 features Intel® RealSense™ technology that has been adapted and integrated by Ncam to meet the requirements of the media and entertainment industry, while the latest Ncam Reality software runs on standard HP workstations that provide industry-trusted processing power with easily accessible global support.

Nic Hatch, the CEO, Ncam, said, “Ncam’s core strengths lie within software research and development, with a focus on developing innovative approaches and solutions for AR utilizing both computer vision and computer graphics techniques.

In order to offer our customers comprehensive industry-leading solutions, it makes perfect sense to partner with industry-leading hardware suppliers.

The combination of Ncam’s software and industry knowledge, Intel® RealSense™ technology and HP’s trusted workstations enable us to manufacture smaller, lighter, more robust and more powerful products like the Mk2 as we continue to develop the most accurate and flexible camera tracking products available, not only for today but also for tomorrow’s products.”

“Intel® RealSense™ technology is used to build products that enrich people’s lives through devices and machines that perceive the world in 3D.  We are excited to partner with Ncam for its growing range of AR solutions,” said Joel Hagberg, Head of Product Management and Marketing, Intel RealSense Group.

The Mk2 camera bar is a newly designed bar that mounts freely on any camera and is based on Intel® RealSense™ technology to capture spatial data that then feeds back to the Ncam Reality server. 

The weight reduction of the Mk2 camera bar will be welcome for handheld and stabilized rigs, while the compact size will allow for easier, better-balanced rigging and more flexible mounting options.

All existing Ncam customers will have an upgrade path to the Mk2 camera bar, which is scheduled for release in Q1 2020.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
