Traxis Tracking: Zero Density’s New Way to Track Cameras & People
Zero Density just announced their new camera tracker: Traxis Tracking Platform. It provides both high-precision camera tracking and markerless talent tracking.
Uses AI to identify multiple actors in a 3D environment
Extracts actor’s 3D location in real-time
Sends data to Reality Engine to create reflections, refractions, and virtual shadows of the actor
Trend: Markerless Tracking
Talent tracking without markers continues to evolve. At NAB, Disguise demoed their partnership with Move.ai for their markerless tracking.

Don't let your valuable content fall into the wrong hands. With Vestigit, you can ensure your content remains secure and in control.
Next best thing to markeless tracking? How about invisible markers
BrightMarker is an invisible fluorescent tag or QR code that can be applied to 3D-printed objects for hidden tracking.
Using easily visible QR codes brings security risks, and they can be easily tampered with (plus when it comes to video - you see them).
These hidden tags can be seen with infrared cameras. Hidden from view but trackable with a camera.
Beyond VP and virtual reality tracking, there are wider uses such as package and supply train tracking.
