“We looked at the Stype system, it was a fantastic price for something that was costing ten times more from companies that have been doing this in the past. We’ve been really surprised and really happy with how well it worked and everybody who sees it is amazed by its results.”

The Stype kit, together with an encoded Stanton Jimmy Jib camera crane, provided Fox sports Australia a trackless 3D virtual/augmented reality studio capabilities while Vizrt delivered astonishing 3D computer graphics and animations.

Together with automatic aiming and focusing, motion control and a virtual output, the Stype kit is currently one of the most most advanced trackless 3D virtual studio and augmented reality system on the virtual production market.
