Centurfax to launch Blue.i portable studio navigation system


Blue.i can be attached to a studio dolly and a floor covering that is digitally encoded with a special pattern.

Centurfax has developed Blue.i, a unique solution for studio navigation that is portable.

In development for two years, Blue.i has been partly funded by a U.K. Government Smart Award that has recognized its innovative approach to the problem of precisely tracking equipment within a busy film or broadcast set. As a studio navigation system, Blue.i provides absolute position and orientation data to any tracking system.

Blue.i is a high-resolution camera-based tracking system that can be mounted to any movable device. For example, it can be attached to a studio dolly and a floor covering that is digitally encoded with a special pattern. The floor pattern has been designed and tested to be blue screen-compatible, thereby allowing the system to be used unobtrusively within virtual reality studios.

Blue.i will be given its worldwide product launch at IBC2003. For more information visit Centurfax at Stand 11.555 or www.centurfax.co.uk.
