BlackTrax has had the first deployment of its real-time motion tracking solution in Poland by events supplier Prolight Sp. z o. o for Dancing with the Stars on Polsat TV.
“Lighting is the very first thing that viewers see,” said Radoslaw Zacheja, CTO at Prolight. “It’s a challenge for broadcasters to change contestants, lighting, audio, judging and cameras and we’ve solved this by using BlackTrax to automate this process on stage and screen.”
Working with lighting designer Artur Szyman, Prolight attached BTBeacons to performers and used BlackTrax’s user-friendly interface integrating them with a media server and lighting console. For light tracking they used Clay Paky Supersharpy, Sharpy and Robe Lighting LEDWash fixtures.
“All production staff were really impressed with the set up time and accurate tracking provided by BlackTrax,” added Zacheja.
BlackTrax precisely tracks movements, giving contestants freedom to perfect their on-screen performances. At the same time, production staff benefit from precise tracking and increased operator efficiency due to the automated tracking process.
Igor Silva, marketing director concluded: “BlackTrax is a rock-solid platform and we’re delighted to see Prolight use it to its full capacity to create spectacular performances that amaze and inspire millions of viewers.”
