LOCKED ON is an object tracking solution that controls one or more PTZ cameras - or PTX fixtures used with your favorite camera. It uses RFID tags and anchors, allowing cameras to automatically follow single or multiple moving targets in dimensional space. You can even control robotic lights, having them track the same tags as the video cameras.
No Camera Operators Required!
LOCKED ON receives positioning data from single or multiple battery powered transmitters (TAGS) sending positioning data to multiple RFID receivers (ANCHORS) placed around the perimeter of the space.
The technology utilizes predictive motion and acceleration/deceleration data to emulate the camera work of skilled and well-trained camera operators. Whether you’re trying to follow a preacher, a professor, a presenter, or pro athletes, LOCKED ON provides a whole new dimension of cost-effective control and ISO recording capability.
LOCKED ON Tracking Kits can support control of up to 128 tags and 32 anchors. You can add ISO recording for camera inputs, and create files which can be synchronized by time code for ease of use with post-production software such as Final Cut, Premiere and AVID.
If you’re interested in equipping an indoor or outdoor venue to cover multiple events, we’ll assist in the design and installation process to be sure you have the proper number of appropriately positioned ANCHORS to support the desired results.
The small TAG is typically placed in a pocket, in athletic headgear, or affixed in various ways to inanimate moving objects. It includes a transmitter and receiver antenna with range of about 100 feet, with an alternate antenna that extends the range to about 100 meters, indoors or outdoors. The rechargeable battery provides about five (5) hours of continuous operation.
The ANCHORS receive data from the TAGs, updating hundreds of time per second. A minimum of two anchors are required to accumulate data for position location, and three or more are required for a higher degree of spatial position computation.

The simplest and most common use cases are classrooms, presentations and houses of worship, where one person is frequently moving laterally in front of the audience. This requires a minimum of ONE TAG and TWO ANCHORS.

Classroom • Presentation • Worship
If you’d like to follow multiple ‘targets’ in a performance, each person has their own tag with a unique radio frequency. LOCKED ON isolates those frequencies, assigning a PTZ/PTZ camera to each performer. In many cases this eliminates the need for multiple camera operators, with the option of ISO recording each performer.
The system supports up to 128 TAGS and 32 ANCHORS, so you can follow all the action with a camera dedicated to each athlete. It eliminates the need for dozens of camera operators, and if you wish you can ISO record each camera/tag pairing to create a rich media library of individual performances spanning years of event participation.

Accuracy and precison are best achieved when there are no major obstructions between the tags and the anchors. A human body can occlude radio signals, so a minimum of three anchors are ideal, especially when people are turning completely around inside the coverage area, and where multiple objects are followed by individual cameras.
