Virtual production and broadcast graphics company Zero Density has announced the launch of Traxis Platform, a turnkey solution for high-precision tracking on virtual productions.
The platform features solutions for camera tracking, talent tracking and tracking control, enabling 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 ensures that every camera move that happens on set is reflected in the virtual world.
For talent tracking, the Traxis platform includes an AI-powered system that can identify multiple actors within a 3D environment at once. The Talent Tracking system uses AI to extract the actor’s 3D location from the image in real-time, then sends the data to Reality Engine to create accurate reflections, refractions and virtual shadows of the actor in 3D space. The technology is completely markerless, which streamlines 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, said the company, a comprehensive tool that manages both tracking and lens calibration data. Compatible with all industry-standard tracking protocols, the hub brings together all available tracking and lens data into a centralised interface, significantly reducing setup time. The hub has a library of the most commonly used broadcast lenses, enabling quick and easy calibration, said Zero Density.
“Traxis isn’t simply a tracking platform. It’s a meticulously crafted solution aimed at enhancing workflows, increasing tracking quality and minimising ownership costs,” said 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.”
