Stagetracker II arrives at Pro Light + Sound 2018 with new software
RF-based localisation system, Stagetracker II by TTA, is to be shown at ProLight + Sound 2018 with an entirely redesigned web-based user interface offering new connectivity options across audio, lighting and video.
A new front-end user interface has been designed to facilitate third-party integration via plug-in software extensions.
The system comprises three elements: redesigned, miniature RF tags that can be concealed within a performer's outfit; IP67-rated RadioEye RF receivers, each containing 60 antennas; and the 19-in, rack mountable Stagetracker II engine, with a single 2.8-in touchscreen for fast front panel operation and a redesigned web-based user interface for full control.
Up to 100 tagged performers can be tracked, and each individual tag can transmit up to 100 positions per second. The 3D positioning data that results can be shared over IP via a number of protocols including ArtNet, Open Sound Control (OSC) and DMX, making it suitable for use with a variety of media technology.
A central feature of Stagetracker II is its ability to work hand-in-hand with third party platforms. As new immersive technologies capture the imaginations of audiences worldwide, Stagetracker II expedites the creation of precise, real-time immersive environments. The system's web-based core software can be augmented with plug-ins that introduce the functionality and features of each partner technology, creating a single operating environment in which the engineer is freed to concentrate on the show.
Full demonstrations of Stagetracker II will take place at Prolight + Sound, taking place at the Frankfurt Messe between April 10-13, on the booth of Astro Spatial Audio, located in Hall 3.1, stand A33/39.
