IR tracking of aerial performers on a 50-meter high building with a real-time motion graphics software.

Steven Jackson, AV engineer and one of battle’s key collaborators on this massive project explains that the way in which we are combining IR and tracking on this scale is a real first for the industry in Germany.

The challenge with content production for mapping is the timescale and limited rehearsal which is normally possible on such a job, with this new tracking system we can generate amazing content directly on the performers or musicians, and make instant graphical changes without having to re-render large media files. Most importantly the movement of the artists creates a one-off unique visual experience which evolves each time its repeated. This is immersive, interactive modern theatre and live communication.
