AR Camera Bar
AR Camera Bar
The Mk2 Camera Bar is an award-winning, breakthrough product for Ncam in the area of virtual production. It uses real-time camera tracking technology to enable the creation of rich content and simultaneously offer production companies and broadcasters a range of benefits. In particular, improving the process of filming with chroma keying (green screens) for businesses like Sony Pictures, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Studios, Marvel, Fortnite, Sky Sports and more.
Providing live pre-visualisation of environments, set extensions and CGI elements directly in-camera while shooting is incredibly advantageous to production companies. This product provides those benefits in a design that is lighter and smaller than its predecessor, with improved thermal performance, a premium look and feel that the Ncam team are proud of and a greater range of mounting options to cater for different needs. It also features a LEMO connection port for synchronising multiple camera bars and a locking mechanism for secure USB-C connection. In combination with the Ncam Mk2 Micro Server, the system can also work more flexibly than could ever be achieved previously – with a greater variety of camera rigs including jib, Steadicam, wire cam and drones. The AR Camera Bar received Best of Show Award at IBC in Amsterdam and also received Special Merit at the Digital Media World Awards.
