POLYMOTION CHAT: HOW IT WORKS
Polymotion Chat’s computer vision engine detects limbs and builds a stick model to enable it to track subjects. This not only means the system creates high-quality broadcast level output (without losing resolution – like some pan and scan systems), it is more reliable than other facial tracking solutions and is able to deal with occlusion – such as people crossing in front of each other.
Simple Touchscreen UI
Polymotion Chat has a simple, intuitive touch-screen UI designed for simplicity and ease of use. The UI can be customised with preset buttons, preset moves and much more, all with the purpose of streamlining the work-flow of the operator.
