To be able to incorporate realistic VR (virtual reality) or AR (augmented reality) studio sets in your live productions, accurate camera positioning data is imperative. The AW-UE150 PRO PTZ camera features the FreeD protocol, which provides you with the option to output Pan / Tilt / Zoom / Iris information via Serial (RS 422) and IP (UDP) directly from the camera to your tracking system. The FreeD protocol is supported by most popular virtual set systems, including solutions such as Brainstorm, Ross UX XPERIENCE, Vizrt Viz Virtual Studio, and Zero Density.
FreeD is a protocol that sends camera positioning data directly from the camera to a virtual reality production system. It enables productions to incorporate realistic virtual studio sets and elements into their live video workflow without the need for additional sensors or encoders.
The AW-UE150 PRO PTZ remote camera is the first robotic camera on the market to provide Position Data Notification (PTZF). It's ability to be used in virtual sets is only one of many features that makes it the ideal choice for your robocam needs. It also features a massive wide-angle of view, 4K / 60p video, versatile video outputs and more. This camera takes remote cameras to an entirely different level of performance.
FreeD functionality can be activated directly in the web menu or the on-screen display menu of the AW-UE150 PTZ camera. To access this functionality, make sure that you have the latest firmware version of the camera installed.
Thanks to the adoption of the FreeD protocol, the AW-UE150 provides real-time positioning to the Virtual Reality Engine™ from Zero Density. Find out how this combination ensures the creation of a cost effective virtual set at the studio of a major TV station in Belgium.
Tracking information (Pan, Tilt, Zoom, Focus, Iris) are communicated via IP and Serial connections and are in-sync with genlock input.
