Creating a virtual NAB event remotely with Panasonic and the AW-UE150

The cancellation of NAB 2020 caused the broadcast industry to scramble for new ways to reach customers, partners, the media, and analysts. In mid-March, the Panasonic Pro Video team approached DisruptAR about creating a fully virtual event to stream online.  The engineering team at DisruptAR was already working on an Unreal Engine plugin to integrate the tracking data from the AW-UE150 Professional PTZ camera.  As a result, the two projects fit together perfectly.

DisruptAR releases Panasonic PTZ plugin for Unreal Engine

Producing augmented reality, virtual sets, and VP productions used to require a big investment.  High-end cameras and lenses, expensive camera tracking systems, proprietary rendering software, and expensive servers.  We want to help change that.  DisruptAR is excited to release a plugin for the Panasonic AW-UE150 PTZ camera and the Unreal Engine.

This plugin receives Free-D tracking data from the Panasonic AW-UE150 and applies those values to a cinema camera in your Unreal project.  Position as well as pan, tilt and zoom data from the camera are currently enabled with focus data coming soon.

Let us know how you are using the plugin in the comments or email us at info@DisruptAR.com.
