The new camera bar is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, making it ideal for handheld and stabilized rigs.
Ncam Technologies has announced the Mk2, a new model of its award-winning camera bar that 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 global support.
“Our 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,” notes Ncam CEO Nic Hatch. “In order to offer our customers comprehensive 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 enables us to manufacture smaller, lighter, more robust and more powerful products like the Mk2.”
“Intel RealSense technology is used to build products that enrich people’s lives through devices and machines that perceive the world in 3-D, and we are excited to partner with Ncam for its growing range of AR solutions,” adds Joel Hagberg, head of product management and marketing for Intel RealSense Group.
The Mk2 mounts freely on any camera and captures spatial data that then feeds back to the Ncam Reality server. The camera bar’s lighter weight makes it ideal for handheld and stabilized rigs, and its compact size allows for more balanced rigging and more flexible mounting options.
Existing Ncam users will have an upgrade path to the Mk2, which is scheduled for release in early 2020.
