Zero Density Releases High-Precision Tracking Platform for Virtual Production


Track Cameras With Six Milliseconds of Latency; Track Multiple Actors Using AI

August 28, 2023—Today, Zero Density releases its Traxis Tracking Platform, a turnkey solution that makes high-precision tracking in virtual production easier than ever. Featuring camera tracking, talent tracking, and tracking control solutions, the Traxis Platform enables creatives to tell immersive stories with photoreal virtual graphics—all while eliminating traditional barriers like long calibration times, distracting markers, and expensive latency errors.

With an accuracy of up to 0.2 mm and ultra-low latency of just six milliseconds, the Traxis Camera Tracking system offers exceptional precision. On a virtual production, this ensures continuous calibration and seamless real-time results, so every camera move on set is reflected in the virtual world without delay. Virtual graphics can then be broadcast live without breaking the audience’s immersion.

The Traxis platform includes an AI-powered system for talent tracking that can identify multiple actors within a 3D environment at once. Talent Tracking uses AI to extract the actor’s 3D location from the image in real time, then sends the data to a Reality Engine to create accurate reflections, refractions, and virtual shadows of the actor inside the 3D space. The technology is completely markerless, streamlining setup and maintenance, and means actors no longer need to be distracted by wearables or beacons that make it harder to perform.

At the heart of the Traxis platform is the Traxis Hub, a comprehensive tool that manages tracking and lens calibration data. Compatible with all industry-standard tracking protocols, the hub combines all available tracking and lens data into a centralized interface, significantly reducing setup time. The hub has a library of the most commonly used broadcast lenses, enabling quick and easy calibration.

“Traxis isn’t simply a tracking platform. It’s a meticulously crafted solution aimed at enhancing workflows, increasing tracking quality, and minimizing ownership costs,” says Amir Hochfeld, Chief Product Officer at Zero Density. “With its unmatched support, pinpoint accuracy, and streamlined design, it stands out as the go-to solution for high-demand environments.”
