Stage Precision will unveil new features and products at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2023, alongside expanding its global team.

Stage Precision is hitting a milestone moment for its flagship software tool, SP, as it comes out of Beta to release Version 1.0, which includes the new 3D LIDAR integration tool. Stage Precision is also excited to launch a brand-new software product, Space Composer.

Stage Precision will showcase these new capabilities at its own stand, #5K100, as well as being deployed for show control and tracking workflows at the d&b audiotechnick demo space in Room E1, Hall 8.

SP demos will include showing what the 3D LIDAR integration tool for markerless person tracking, and Space Composer, a new type of software specifically designed for graphics layering in Augmented Reality (AR) and 2D real-time motion graphics environments, can achieve.

Michael Giegerich, Stage Precision MD, comments: “Having gathered much feedback from our user community around the many SP features, including the 3D LIDAR integration tool, we are pleased to announce that we have now switched from Beta to a full 1.0 release.”

SP is a connected devices data management and control platform that provides a comprehensive suite of tools. It is used to simplify system control workflows and enhance creativity and productivity while pushing the boundaries of what is technologically possible.

Throughout the entire production process, SP can streamline workflows in virtual production, live entertainment, fixed installations and advanced media systems. It affords a range of capabilities that can help end users to create and manage complex productions or installations, allowing for both data and control to be managed via one central hub.

Offered as a software license with a core version, SP can be upgraded with packages to meet specific market needs including Virtual Production, Kinetic Control, Tracking & Interactive, Light Tracking as well as SP Director, a feature for advanced timeline options with Cues, WebView’s for smartphones and remote PCs, Video Mixer Control IOs, timeline-based triggers and much more.

Until now, markerless tracking has been primarily realised through image-based technology. With the brand-new 3D LIDAR feature, there is no need to rely on lighting scenarios within a room, thus enabling tracking in a wider range of applications.

The 3D LIDAR feature delivers an accurate depiction of moving objects in the sight of the sensor and identifies each person moving within the specified area. When combined with other core features of SP software, this workflow opens up a whole new level of possibilities for tracking applications and interactive installations – without the need to apply technological hardware to tracked persons.

Space Composer is the first software product of its kind and can be tailored to the unique needs of AR applications and live graphics environments. This innovative tool allows users to layer rendered graphical output of different real-time and game engines, such as Unreal Engine or Notch, over a live camera feed while taking into consideration any live timing delays and camera tracking data.

The core SP software acts as a gateway to most industry standard camera tracking systems, whereas Space Composer provides a solid foundation for creating immersive AR experiences. It’s the perfect tool for any creative technologist looking to take their workflows to a new level of simplicity and functionality in AR and real-time motion graphics projects.

With this expanded range of features and products now available, Stage Precision is delighted to announce two new additions to its global team, Tony McIntyre and Kevin Li.

Tony McIntyre is based in Cleveland, Ohio, and has joined as Technical Sales Manager for the USA, while Hong Kong-based Kevin Li, has been named as APAC’s Technical Solutions Specialist.

Giegerich concludes: “We welcome Tony and Kevin’s valuable skill sets to the Stage Precision team; their key roles will bolster the company’s technical availability in different time zones and increase customer service and support.”

To see the new offerings from Stage Precision and meet the team at ISE, please visit stand #5K100 at Fira Barcelona, Gran Via, from January 31 to February 3, 2023.
