zactrack at the Mörbisch Festival on the Lake
Mörbisch, 25. - 26.7.2007
Successful live application of zactrack at the floating stage in Mörbisch
Captured by zactrack, a leading actor was automatically tracked during the whole show by four moving lights at two evening performances of the operetta "Wiener Blut". At the invitation of professor Harald Serafin and lighting designer Friedrich Rom zactrack proved the efficiency and live capability of its automated tracking system.
During a system check under real conditions zactrack was to take over the automated tracking of one of the leading actors in the operetta "Wiener Blut". The role of count Zedlau was chosen for this purpose.
The stage designer Rolf Langenfass skilfully concealed the zactrack equipment beneath the stage structures of green hills, rendering it invisible to the audience. The strap containing the transmitter for the 3D wireless tracking was attached under the costume of the actors who played count Zedlau, Rainer Trost and Christian Zenker.
During the entire performance the actors were tracked with pinpoint accuracy and lit with four additional spotlights (Futurelight SC780). The team of zkoor managed to demonstrate the seamless integration of zactrack into an ongoing production on a large stage with sophisticated audio, radio and lighting technology.
