BlackTrax releases Beta 2.0
Posted on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016
The new BlackTrax Beta 2.0 makes tracking even easier, faster to calibrate, programme and use. Developed for over a year, 2.0 has the largest number of new features, GUI and workflow improvements in any BlackTrax release yet.
“A lot of these improvements were developed from customer suggestions, requests and general feedback,” explains Marty Cochrane, BlackTrax product manager. “This includes better system reporting, real-time chapter programming and more control over fixtures during the calibration process.”
Highlights include: All-new GUI designfor BlackTrax, BTWyg, Tracker, and Follower – with full-screen mode for BlackTrax and new simpler basic mode for Tracker and Follower; new Fixture Calibration mode improvements ensure faster calibration; rigid and soft frames for more flexible tracking operations and objects. Frames combine a collection of Stringers (aka LEDs) from multiple beacons that make up an object and BlackTrax is no longer restricted to three Stringers for a system; improved fixture programming.
“BlackTrax was all about functionally, getting the system to do some cool and amazing things. Now that we have reached the milestone of a stable and functioning product that has been working flawlessly in the world’s most demanding shows, we wanted to turn our attention to ease of use, simplicity, and unification,” adds Cochrane.
