Naostage launches beaconless 3D tracking system for fixed install and rental staging

Naostage has launched the world’s first automatic beaconless 3D tracking system, for rental/staging and fixed-install users to create immersive, interactive live experiences.

Designed and engineered at the company’s headquarters in Nantes, France, Naostage’s tracking system identifies and follows artists, performers and visitors wherever they are in a defined tracking area – allowing for the automation of an endless array of lighting, audio, video and media effects in real time, in-sync with the show.

Naostage can help with staging automation for concerts, tours and festivals, but it can also help create a fully automated show in a museum or an entertainment venue where AV and lighting actions could be triggered by a visitor entering the room. A cruise ship could also embark on multi-week journey with a fully automated show, simplifying pre-production and reducing costs across the board.

The product of four years of research and development, the easy-to-understand Naostage ecosystem is backed by ABAB and BPI France, which invested €1m in the company last year. It comprises three products: Kapta, a 12kg riggable 3D sensor bar; Kore, an AI-processing server which uses AI to track up to 16 performers from a single box; and Kratos interaction-design software.
As a beaconless system Naostage requires no additional hardware, such as sensors or tags, to be attached to performers. Once rigged, the plug-and-play Kapta sensor scans the space in 3D, feeding data to the Kore processing unit which automatically identifies each target in real-time 3D.
