Naostage, a forward-thinking, engineering-led start-up that designs, develops and manufacturers tracking systems dedicated to AV on stage, will welcome ISE 2024 attendees to an immersive and interactive experience on stand #5D750.
The company’s award-winning tracking solution, K SYSTEM, will form the cornerstone of the Naostage stand, where a dedicated ‘black box’ live tracking experience will present visitors with an immersive, interactive show in four parts.
The show will begin with an immersive video made by Naostage partner Cutback, with video mapping handled by SMODE (Naostage’s technical partner at ISE) and tracking and interaction managed by K SYSTEM. Comprising three scenarios and designed to be interactive and contemplative, the segment caters to professionals in cultural tourism markets, such as museum spaces, as well as those in marketing looking for cutting-edge solutions.
The subsequent two sequences are cooperative games, where entertainment professionals – for example, theme parks – can see the performance of K SYSTEM firsthand. The show culminates with a final act tailored for live show industry professionals, where Naostage demonstrates how K SYSTEM interacts with followspots in a simulated show, and visitors take centre stage.
The entire four-part show will be accompanied by an immersive soundtrack featuring localised, interactive audio sources triggered by visitors to the Naostage stand. Developed and set up in collaboration with La FabSonic, and delivered in partnership with L-Acoustics, whose L-ISA audio processor is powering the spatial audio, the 3D sound system will attribute visitors an audio source that follows their movement, enabling them to interact with the sound according to their position in the space. Featuring audio content created by an acclaimed French sound artist, the experience will allow visitors to ‘play’ the room as if it were a musical instrument.
As part of the partnership with L-Acoustics, visitors can also discover K SYSTEM on the L-Acoustics booth (#B4) in the Audio Demo Room in Hall 8.
K SYSTEM is the world’s first automatic, beaconless 3D tracking solution. It simplifies the creation of immersive, interactive live experiences by identifying and following visitors and performers wherever they are within the tracking area.
K SYSTEM is composed of three elements: KAPTA, a lightweight 3D sensor bar that scans in real-time; KORE, an AI computing unit that merges sensor data and automatically detects, tracks and identifies people moving withing the tracking area; and KRATOS, a complete user software to design projects and manage interactions with audio-visual systems.
The technology simplifies the job of AV teams used to working manually with traditional or wireless beacon tracking systems. K SYSTEM also enables creatives to turn their most ambitious ideas into reality, allowing for the design of amazing effects, as well as automated audio, video and lighting interactions with performers and visitors.
Discover K SYSTEM at ISE on the Naostage stand in Hall 5, #5D750, and the L-Acoustics booth in in Hall 8, Audio Demo Room #B4.
