Originally developed as an automated follow-spot system, BlackTrax has been used on some high profile shows and as more potential was discovered BlackTrax can now be used in a wide range of scenarios. Lucid Technologies works closely with BlackTrax to provide the most integrated tracking system to live entertainment and beyond.
BlackTrax can be used when follow spots aren’t practical. It connects to your current lighting network and sends positional data to pre-existing moving lights. It can enable additional flexibility, accuracy & creativity.
Automated Follow Spot
You can use 1 or 100s of lights to track your performers, all still with complete control from the lighting desk.
BlackTrax can turn lights on and off as performers leave the stage, or can change colour as a performer enters a certain area. The possibilities are endless.
BlackTrax works with any lighting desk, and when your lights arent following anything, you can use them as normal.
BlackTrax has intergrations with all the big media server platforms. It allows screens and projection surfaces to be tracked, in addition to aiding projector calibration & line-up.
Track objects and screens, and use this data to track projection onto your object. Screens no longer have to be static.
Projector Calibration Assistance
Use BlackTrax combined with a media server to aid your projector line up.
Track non screen objects
Track objects such as performers or objects, and eliminate the risk of shadows or other distraction that could ruin your visual design.
Realtime content adds a whole new level of live flexibility to a production but with BlackTrax content can react to people, objects & cameras in realtime.
Rigid Body Tracking
Use Rigid Bodies to manipulate content, like emiting particles or create virtual shadows based on lights in the scene.
Soft Body Tracking
Use BlackTrax to track people, their movements and how their armd and legs move. Use this data to control video or manipulate realtime content.
Track cameras for use in Augemented Reality enviroments, adding another aspect to your content.
Lucid Technologies has a scalable BlackTrax rig that can be tailored to you. It comes with a support rack as standard, for increased flexibility, alongside the main front of house rack which contains high bandwidth networking and DMX processing powered by Luminex. The system utilizes fibre with connections to additional racks & show infrastructure.
