Stagetracker II by TTA, an RF-based localization system, will be on display at the upcoming Pro Light + Sound 2018 show in Frankfurt with a redesigned web-based user interface offering new connectivity options across audio, lighting and video.

Following its preview at last year’s PLS show, Stagetracker II is now making its official entry into the market, also appearing at partner booths that include d&b audiotechnik and Astro Spatial Audio.

The new front-end user interface is designed to facilitate third-party integration via plug-n software extensions. In addition, the accuracy of the vector-based RF tracking system will be highlighted in the live demonstrations at the show.

The system incorporates three elements: redesigned discreet miniature RF tags that can be concealed within the outfits/costumes of performers; IP67-rated RadioEye RF receivers, each containing 60 antennas; and the 19-inch, rack mountable Stagetracker II engine with a single 2.8-inch touchscreen for front panel operation and the web-based user interface.

Up to 100 tagged performers can be tracked, and each individual tag is stated to be able to transmit up to 100 positions per second. The 3D positioning data that results can be shared over IP via a number of protocols, including ArtNet, Open Sound Control (OSC) and DMX.

The web-based core software can be augmented with plugins that introduce the functionality and features of each partner technology, creating a single operating environment. And, an entire show can be set up quickly using a single duo cable for power and control.

“After a long period of development and beta testing in the field, we’re very proud to bring the completed Stagetracker II to Pro Light + Sound,” states TTA CEO John Skjelstad. “Together with our valued partners, we believe that we have created something very special — a system that takes the original idea behind stage tracking and raises it to an incredible new level. Last year we arrived in Frankfurt with a system that already had the potential to impress. This year, we will introduce the true future of three-dimensional, cross-platform performer localization.”

Full demonstrations of Stagetracker II will take place at the booth of Astro Spatial Audio throughout the show, located in Hall 3.1, stand A33/39.
