The Most Accurate Tracking.
World-class tracking begins with our ridiculously small Dots.
Most people don’t notice them.
The Jigabot EX does.
What makes Jigabot devices automatically follow a moving subject? IR Emitters, called “Dots”, are attached to subjects, and Jigabot devices sense & follow them.
It’s called IR Tracking, and it’s revolutionary because it works indoors, near or far, fast or slow, smoothly & responsively.
Dots are smaller than the diameter of a finger nail, they emit the signal that a Jigabot can sense and follow, and Dots are attached to subjects. And when subjects move around, the Jigabot EX senses the movement of the Dot and pans & tilts to follow the subject automatically.
Note: the Jigabot EX must be fitted with an IR Tracking kit in order to follow Dots.
Now you see me, Now they don't
Dots are incredibly small, yet they enable our Tracking Heads to “magically” point your camera, following you or others.
Dots are easy to attach, and can be tracked by our products up to hundreds of feet away indoors.
Connect the DOTS
It's simple to use DOTS
No complicated setup is required to use our Dots or other products. Four Dots and a Dot Driver battery pack are included the Dot Driver Kit. Rechargeable battery packs (Dot Drivers) last a little over an hour, and so you may want to purchase extras as spares.
What are the BENEFITS?
Can you spot the DOTS?
Each “actor” in the below photos is “wearing” at least one dot. Can you spot the Dots?
Dots include small infrared (IR) LEDs, which are powered by Dot Drivers, or power packs. Dots are essential to Auto Tracking, but are small enough not to be noticed. Auto Tracking is valuable whenever you need better quality tracking shots; better framed shots. Auto Tracking provides “insurance” that you will get the shot the first take, or that you get the shot when there is only one take—such as during a live-event shoot.
Auto Tracking Heads and Dots
To be responsive Auto Tracking Heads analyze Dots attached to the subject 90 times per second, then pan and/or tilt their motors 90 times per second. An Auto Tracking Head will analyze over 5 Million pixels in the subject’s scene 90 times per second, and thus determine very precisely where the subject is and where the motors need to move. Then Auto Tracking Head will constantly calculating velocities and predicting movements in order to provide the best possible smoothness for your live, tracking shots.
