Naostage’s K SYSTEM, an automatic, beaconless 3D tracking solution, will make its highly anticipated debut before an international audience at Integrated Systems Europe 2023 (Jan. 31–Feb. 3).

The K SYSTEM makes it easy for fixed-install professionals to create immersive, interactive live experiences by seamlessly identifying and following visitors and performers 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 perfect sync with the installation or show. The official launch of K SYSTEM will take place at 4:30 local time on Tuesday, Jan. 31 on the 196-square-meter Naostage booth (5D700), where hands-on demonstrations will give ISE2023 visitors the opportunity to see the product up close for the first time.

The potential applications for K SYSTEM are endless: In addition to concerts, tours, and festivals, the technology can be used to automate tracking in a venue, museum, or visitor attraction, triggering audio, video, and lighting effects as a visitor enters the room, or to allow a cruise ship to embark on a multi-week journey with a fully automated show, simplifying pre-production and reducing costs across the board.
 
As a beaconless solution, Naostage requires no additional hardware, such as sensors or tags, to be attached to artists or visitors. Once rigged, the plug-and-play sensor scans the space in 3D, feeding data to the K SYSTEM processing unit, which automatically identifies each target in real time.

Paul Cales, founder and CEO of Naostage, said ISE provides the perfect opportunity to demonstrate the power of K SYSTEM to an international audience, as well as build on its existing network of partners and distributors in the EMEA region. “Along with live staging, the AV systems integration sector is a priority market for Naostage, with huge growth potential,” Cales commented, “so we can’t wait to hit the ISE show floor and introduce our industry to this truly unique technology.”

At ISE, Naostage will share booth 5D700 with compatriots Smode Tech, whose real-time compositing and media server platform SMODE will join forces with K SYSTEM. Bringing flexibility and fast artistic decision-making capabilities, SMODE’s workflow will help to demonstrate the creative potential of Naostage’s live tracking system by bringing to life immersive visuals from digital artist Maotik, coupled with regular interactive dance performances.
