This reel is from 2012 but it is VERY impressive work for TV.
What is VERY cool is that it seems that they can see a live composite IN CAMERA.

thanks for posting http://erikalstad.com/backup/misc.php_files/smile.gif

yes, they use a special calibrated machine on rails to do that, pretty expensive.

if the camera stood still it would have been 50 times cheaper... \ :]

yes, cool that they can see the greenscreen comp realtime, but i think most other systems can do that as well, like the TriCaster...

IIRC, Pan Am was shot at UVS1 on the Universal Lot, which uses witness cameras and unique markers on the ceiling to track a camera in real time. Using this technique, motion control rigs aren't needed; you can even shoot handheld. Because the setup is real time, you can live key proxy models on the monitors as you shoot. We used an earlier version of this tech on 'V' back in 2009.

do you know the name of those realtime tracking systems?

noticed some trackings were so-so, but that will improve in time i guess...

In that link you can see the unique markers in the ceiling; they resemble QC codes.

ah, so you rent the stage...

that ain't gonna be cheap i guess...
