Hybrid, a leading provider of real-time graphics and robotic camera systems, has entered into a dealer agreement with TSD Videoa leading systems integrator/reseller with offices in Montreal, Toronto, and Nova Scotiato market Hybrid virtual studios and robotic camera products throughout Canada. The two companies signed the deal during the 2013 NAB Show last month in Las Vegas.
This is a great opportunity for both companies, said Maurice Pauz©, principal and co-founder of TSD Video. Were both looking to expand the market for the virtual studio business in Canada. Were always looking to represent exciting, innovative products that can enhance our customers studio broadcast and production workflows cost-effectively.
TSD Video will represent Hybrid virtual studio solutions including Krypton, Hybrids flagship 3D virtual studio solution with camera tracking, and the Hybrid Neon trackless 3D virtual studio solution.
Krypton is a high-end HD/SD virtual set system with a powerful realtime 3D engine. It interfaces with XYZ motion tracking devices, including opto-mechanical and pattern recognition, with no video or audio delays.
The Hybrid Neon trackless virtual studio is an affordable, user-friendly system consisting of software running on a PC. Rather than camera tracking and calibration, Neon enables virtual camera movements in realtime from fixed cameras on set. Despite its simplicity, Neon produces 3D virtual scenes that are photorealistic and anti-aliased. Both virtual studios give users the flexibility to import 3D models from popular, third party 3D animation programs.
TSD Video will also represent Hybrids broadcast-grade robotic camera technology, including Chrome, Silver, and Titanium robotic jibs and PTZF camera heads. These systems enable precise, repeatable camera moves and trackingfor virtual studio and special effects applicationswithout introducing video/audio delays or noise during use.
Were extremely pleased to join forces with Maurice Pauz©, Jacques Besner, and everyone at TSD Video to expand the virtual studio market throughout the country, said Olivier Cohen, CEO, Hybrid. We rely upon our partners to help sell, install, and service our robotic camera and virtual studio solutions. With their extensive experience and knowledge of the pro-video market in Canada, this partnership will be mutually beneficial for both organizations, as well as for customers looking for affordable, high-performance virtual studio and robotic camera tracking solutions.
