Talk is, it is said, is cheap. Actions, they say, speak louder than words. A picture, many believe, is worth a thousand words. So instead of telling prospective customers about the magical effects, you can create for them – why not show your capabilities in action?
That’s what Japanese equipment rental company Hibino Visual – who joined the growing international ranks of the BlackTrax community last year – did.
“The video Hibino produced stars Utamaru, the – very talented – daughter of one of the Hibino team, and is designed to promote BlackTrax real-time tracking technology as part of Hibino’s complete offering,” explained Toyokazu Fujisawa, Director at Hibino Visual.
The sequences were made possible by combining a disguise (formerly d3 Technologies) media server, real-time graphics from Notch and BlackTrax real-time motion tracking system.
BlackTrax beacons were attached to Utamaru’s shoes and costume as well as to the props she uses, allowing precise tracking of her every move – and delivering perfect synchronization with the lighting effects.
The video has subsequently been shown to numerous potential customers by Hibino’s salespeople – with great success.
