BlackTrax FIRST with 6D projection mapping.


HBM Programme for Smart Government Award Ceremony in Dubai.
Production Technology LLC (Protec), the largest live events production company in the Middle East, deployed CAST BlackTrax realtime motion tracking solution at the Hamdan bin Mohammed Programme for Smart Government awards – HbMPSG.

The two-hour long ceremony was a pioneering initiative in the Dubai for government services. Protec used a five by five metre rotating cube structure hanging above a 22-metre diameter circular stage, during the ceremony the cube pitched forward, rotated and lifted up and down.

The cube was tracked using BlackTrax realtime motion tracking and integrated with d3 Technologies 4x4pro media servers.

BlackTrax also tracked two large pieces of 13 x 14 metre jigsaw-shaped scenery located around the edge of the stage that were used as a projection canvas.

The audience was positioned 240-degrees around the stage, meaning the cube and jigsaw shapes needed to be tracked and projected the complete 360 degrees of the setup.

This was the first project to use 6D tracking on such a scale scale in the EMEA region. BlackTrax not only tracks XYZ positions, which is the regular 3D positional information, but will also track Yaw, Pitch and Roll for rotation in any direction. Objects can move, spin, rotate in 6DoF (6 Degrees of Freedom) and still be tracked.

BlackTrax streamed realtime positional information via high-speed protocol (RTTrPM) to the d3 media server. d3 constructed a rigid body cube (virtual version of the cube) in the media server design tool that behaved and moved like the real cube, in realtime by using the positional information received from BlackTrax.

The content for the awards ceremony was created using live camera feeds of award winners, audience members and custom created graphics and videos. Protec not only supplied BlackTrax and d3, they also supplied 32 x Christie HD20K J Series projectors to create the spectacular visuals along with the complete audio, lighting and rigging solution.
