Broadcast Technology for the Future.

Shotoku To Debut Free-d2
S

hotoku Broadcast Systems, a wellestablished leader in manual and
robotic camera support, and virtual
reality tracking, will be introducing
the U.S. broadcast market to its latest
solution in its range of VR/AR tracking
systems at this year's NAB Show.
The company's new Free-d2, which
will be demonstrated at Shotoku's
Booth C8008, represents a new
generation of tracking systems that do
not require physical encoder
devices attached to the camera
support's moving axes.
The new Free-d2 system,
which is ideal for VR/AR news,
sports and current affairs
live studio productions, uses
advanced video processing
algorithms
and
simple
ceiling markers to precisely
determine the exact position
and orientation of the studio
camera, thus providing highly
accurate
and
constantly
referenced (absolute) position
tracking. No concept of a home
or reference point exists for
Free-d2 - wherever the camera

is positioned is immediately known.
The tracking data never drifts no
matter how many moves or hours of
operation the camera has.
"Shotoku is extremely excited to
introduce Free-d2, our newest VR/
AR tracking system, to the U.S.
broadcast market," says James
Eddershaw, Sales Director, Shotoku.
"For many years, Shotoku has been
providing broadcasters from around

the world with a range of solutions
in VR tracking, from simple 2D P&T
heads to full-sized 3D systems based
on pedestals, cranes and jibs. These
systems provide precise, reliable,
and easy-to-use hardware-based VR
tracking data.
Now, the Free-d2 which was
originally developed by engineers at
BBC Research and Development, is the
latest addition to the range but differs

in concept to encoder-based hardware
tracking. This latest addition extends
our range of VR solutions."
The system's small Free-d2 camera
is attached to the broadcast camera
in such a way that it does not
interfere with normal operations, and
constantly views the lighting grid area
where markers are positioned. Being
attached directly to the camera means
that any type of camera support can be
used, including Steadicam or
even handheld cameras.
The low-cost markers are
made of simple reflective
material and can be placed
anywhere within the studio
lighting grid or ceiling area.
Once an initial studio
map is created, the system
will typically never require
calibration again. In use, the
Free-d2 camera only needs to
see a small number of markers
to calculate the position of the
camera, so obstructions such
as lights or any other ceiling
Shotoku Free-d2 equipment fittings are no
camera and markers
hindrance to operation.
