Spotrack – Automated Spot Light System

Spotrack is a computer automated follow spot system, enabling an operator to remotely control from any location, any number of moving lights as follow spots. It works with any moving light and any lighting console,

Using a patented 3D tracking system, one operator in a convenient location can follow a performer with up to twenty moving lights. This is achieved by means of a mouse or touchscreen, on a camera-fed display which shows a view of the full stage and its surroundings.

Spotrack consists of one or two cameras, a computer and a DMX interface. One camera is positioned to give a full view of the stage and one to give a wider view of the surrounding space. The image is shown on a computer screen, allowing the spot operator to follow the performer with a mouse. DMX from the console is then fed into Spotrack, then out to the lights.

Spotrack can work with any type of moving light, although it works best with lights that can move quickly, so they can keep up!
