Software-based PTZ control with AI

With the new AC2PTZ, you equip your operators with a super easy solution that frees up resources in your control room.

  • Introduce Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automatically identify who is in the shot and adjust the camera frame and position.
  • Automatically recognise your talents and adjust your PTZ cameras to personalized frames for an optimal camera position.
  • Save time with one shot only, for multiple talents, with AI-controlled face recognition. 
  • Integrate with studio automation systems, such as Viz Mosart.
  • Reduce the number of templates required by your automation system. Read about Personalized frames (P-frames) below

Personalized frames using facial recognition and Keyframe control

Personalized frames (P-frames) help reduce the number of templates needed in your automation system. 

With one shot for multiple talents, you make sure your opening camera shot is automatically adjusted for variations such as:

  • Height /positioning of the talent
  • The talent hair volume 
  • Other personal preferences

The P-frame will identify who is in the frame and position your cameras accordingly. 

Advanced shot properties, such as path planning, are programmed with keyframes. With Keyframe control, you can add several parameters, such as time, speed, and enabling and disabling of axes, for a smooth path and to the shot's final position.

Automate your operations with face tracking and pose estimation

By automating your live broadcast with face tracking, your shots will automatically adjust by tracking the face. If a talent is off its mark in the studio, the shot will automatically adjust based on where you have positioned the talent in the frame. 

How this works: 

  • Sliders indicate the area for face tracking and pose estimation in the frame. The parameter sliders control parameters such as delay before adjustment, speed of adjustments and hysteresis of positioning.

  • Shot Composition with Pose Estimation places a selected face in the frame depending on its pose, freeing up space for the talent to interact with other people in the studio or graphics at the long-sided composition.

Your operators can activate face tracking live on each camera from both the AC2PTX user interface and from the electric.friends Joystick Panel (see below).
