ZEISS acquires camera tracking pioneer Ncam Technologies

July 17, 2023

ZEISS acquires Ncam Technologies
ZEISS has acquired UK-based camera tracking pioneer Ncam Technologies Ltd. With this acquisition, ZEISS is expanding its technology portfolio specifically for the cinema, broadcast, and visual effects industries. Ncam's multi-award-winning hybrid camera tracking technology makes it possible to spatially track the camera indoors and outdoors by utilizing different tracking methods. The acquired tracking data is essential for virtual production and live compositing and offers a huge added value for postproduction.

This technology is an excellent complement to ZEISS' cinema product lineup which includes Supreme Prime and Supreme Prime Radiance, Cinema Zoom and CP.3 lenses as well as recently introduced lens data related services in the CinCraft ecosystem. Together, ZEISS and Ncam are aiming to deliver outstanding, easy to use tracking and VFX solutions for professional production workflows.
