The integrated solution will offer users the most advanced virtual production toolset on the market today, with sub-pixel accurate camera and object tracking, plus powerful workflow tools designed to improve overall efficiency. Both products will be offered as software subscriptions and are designed to run on powerful commodity hardware.

In the last quarter of 2019 Arraiy will release DeepMatte (real-time matting without green screen) and DeepDepth (real-time z-depth extraction and occlusion solving), both of which will also be integrated to Pixotope™. Using these revolutionary add-on products, the combined solution will open up new creative possibilities for virtual production, delivering more efficient workflows and simpler to use toolsets for operators and designers.

In Arraiy we have found a partner that shares our vision of what the Media and Entertainment industry will look like in the months and years to come. Their machine learning based tools will change how people create and capture visual effects, and together we will change what media and advertising will look like in the near future.
— Halvor Vislie, CEO, The Future Group
We are excited to partner with The Future Group and believe that together we have a truly innovative 100% software-based solution for virtual production. Our products are completely synergistic, and together we can enable our customers to make new and innovative real time content without the burden of huge capital requirements. DeepTrack is fully compatible with Pixotope providing a seamless experience for our customers.
— Mark Tobin, CEO, Arraiy

Pixotope™ and DeepTrack will be shown working together on the The Future Group’s stand (SU 12702) at the NAB exhibition in Las Vegas (8th to 11th April), with representatives from both companies on hand to answer questions.
