This update introduces a variety of powerful features and integrations
Germany - Stage Precision has announced the latest release of its flagship software, SP version 1.1.0. This update introduces a variety of powerful features and integrations designed to streamline workflows and enhance user control.
One of the key features of SP version 1.1.0 is its revamped Camera Calibration. Recently trialled on a project for the Gamers 8 event in Saudi Arabia, the new workflow redefines the calibration experience and is ideal for all virtual production setups, including green screens, LED walls and augmented reality.
"We've made it much simpler and faster to calibrate a lens profile and align a tracking system,” explains Axel Lambrecht, CTO of Stage Precision. “This will further reduce reliance on manual measurements and enable much of the camera and lens calibration workflows to be handled offsite, allowing more time for fine-tuning onset and much faster setup times.”
Additionally, SP version 1.1.0 introduces tools for focusing cameras on known points, making it suitable for large-scale calibration scenarios like stadium-scale augmented reality productions. This AR workflow technology recently proved its worth at the Bank of America Stadium when leading full-service fan experience company, the Famous Group, pioneered the use of SP camera calibration tools for the Carolina Panthers' pre-season opener. Using the stadium's jumbo LED displays as calibration boards - indeed, any screen source can be used in this capacity - this highly innovative approach was used to calibrate multiple stadium cameras, determining their precise locations and lens profiles.
According to Lambrecht, “This development marks a huge advancement in conventional stadium tracking and calibration on a large scale and represents not just a technological feat but also a visionary step toward redefining the future of stadium experiences.”
Other enhancements include a new Screen Reposition feature: “By utilising a well-calibrated lens profile and tracking system, SP can now calculate the position and orientation of screens or LED walls based on camera images,” explains Lambrecht. “This will help streamline workflows for professionals in the live event, studio and virtual production industries.”
