Polymotion Chat is an easily deployable automated camera tracking solution that allows an operator to automate up to six presenter and guest camera positions. Using limb and face detection software Polymotion Chat tracks subject movements and provides stable and natural-looking content. The camera agnostic automated subject tracking system is available for multiple broadcast and capture scenarios with 3 different solutions available: Pro, Studio & Broadcast. So whether you have simple tracking requirements or much more advanced large-scale studio needs, Polymotion Chat can help streamline and automate your work-flow.
Automated Camera Tracking Software
Drive Efficiencies With Your Workflow with Automated Subject Tracking
Polymotion Chat’s computer vision engine detects limbs and builds a stick model to enable it to track subjects. This not only means the camera tracking 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.

POLYMOTION CHAT PRO: Automate your control
Polymotion Chat Pro is a low-cost automated subject tracking solution for PTZ cameras where reliability and smooth natural movements are important. The camera tracking software uses an advanced CV (computer vision) engine which allows any user to automatically track a subject — providing consistent, reliable, smooth camera tracking shots.
With a presenter camera tracking solution such as Chat Pro controlling up to 3 cameras, the simple UI means any operator can concentrate on getting their message out, without having to worry about who is going to control the cameras. There is support for Panasonic, Sony, Birddog and many other 3rd Party PTZs. You can also mix vendors, controlling 3 different cameras at the same time.
Chat pro is a perfect presenter tracking system for universities, corporate events, presentations and house of worship, where the system’s pre-programmed moves can be started and controlled by anyone.
CHAT PRO KEY FEATURES
- Simple automated PTZ tracking for 1-3 cameras
- Real-time automated control
- Slow, gentle movements, like a cameraman
- Support for 3rd party PTZ cameras
- Optional hardware controller
POLYMOTION CHAT STUDIO: Improve your control
Polymotion Chat Studio is designed for studios and other live productions where operators need more control. Live person recognition allows presets to be created and tuned for specific shots (e.g. weather presenter or product demonstrations) and more advanced tracking features allows offsets in the shot for tracking or natural closeups. Polymotion Chat Studio can control up to 6 cameras and has a wider range of framing options allowing more flexibility and control.
Chat Studio can do some or all of the heavy-lifting in environments where a fully autonomous system with no operator is required (or semi-autonomous — where only one operator controls multiple cameras), safe in the knowledge that there is a shot ready for when the director wants it.
Seamlessly fitting into any broadcast studio work-flow, Studio is ideal for newsrooms and studios small or large. The automated camera tracking system is camera agnostic and works with all the major broadcast vendors, including Panasonic, Sony, Grass Valley and many more.
CHAT STUDIO KEY FEATURES
- Tracking up to 6 cameras (more with daisy-chained servers)
- Advanced tracking and framing capability
- Tracking and non-tracking presets for recall of regular shots
- Switch between fully automated, semi-automated and manual modes
- Facial recognition allowing for automated presets to be used
- Support for MRMC and 3rd party robotic heads including PTZ cameras from most vendors inc Sony, Panasonic, Birddog etc.
