Examples that Demonstrate the BTSolutions
Any Venue, Any Size, Anywhere
Whether your stage is fixed or is part of a full-scale touring production, BlackTrax is ready to bring your vision and imagination to life. We’ve packaged our solutions to be mobile, flexible, simple, adaptable, and scalable to meet any production demand large or small.
BlackTrax doesn’t just track, it offers the most intelligent tracking solution that you can get. For example, when paired with BTwyg, BlackTrax’s virtual world, operators have the ability to define zones in the virtual space that will trigger actions in the real space. BT is intelligent and goes beyond simple “on/off” tracking, with a range of features such as prediction algorithms and trigger points to fire up lighting or multimedia cues. To put it plainly, BT’s tracking is highly advanced and unlike anything you’ve ever seen or used before.
Quick and Easy Setup and Calibration
BlackTrax’s setup is as easy as hanging the BTCameras around the space you want to track. Its advanced calibration system is automated and easy, it can be performed within 5 to 10 minutes. As a byproduct of this feature, it is very easy to calibrate lights and even use it to update focus positions.
