TOKYO, July 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Media Kobo, Inc. (TSE Mothers Code: 3815), a Tokyo-based company primarily specializing in digital content business, unveiled on July 16 SUPERTRACK, a system it has uniquely developed to shoot real-time volumetric video (*), or live-action three-dimensional moving images.

While conventional moving images on flat screens or in 360-degree virtual reality are shot from a fixed camera viewpoint, volumetric video captures the object from all angles to create three-dimensional images, providing viewers with complete freedom to enjoy them from a vantage point of their choice.

The main features of SUPERTRACK are that its environment for video shooting can be set up easily without requiring special settings or equipment such as a green backdrop screen, and that it is capable of creating high-resolution volumetric video images that can be viewed on commercially available PCs and displayed in life size by utilizing a unique 3D configuration program.

Additionally, the system is the first in the world to create and display three-dimensional moving images in real time, drawing on a unique technique of presentation (*patent pending) based on point cloud technology. It can also stream images live via cloud server.

Application examples:

SUPERTRACK can record the presence and motion of people and other living things as users see them, in a way that cannot be expressed by CG or motion capture, elevating the art of video from a means of recording to an immersive experience.
