HTC Opens Pre-orders for ‘Mars CamTrack’ Virtual Production Box

HTC teased a new Vive product last week which aims to leverage the company’s Vive Trackers for virtual productions. Called Vive Mars CamTrack, the box is appealing to filmmakers looking for an easy way of integrating Vive Trackers into their productions by shrinking complicated workflow into a compact box.

HTC announced its VIVE Mars CamTrack is ready for pre-order, priced at $5,000. The early bird pre-order includes a $200 redeem code for Glassbox Technologies professional virtual camera, DragonFly, the company says in a blog post.

Outside of the the Mars production box itself, the package also includes three mounts (named Rover), two SteamVR 2.0 Base stations, and two VIVE Tracker (3.0). To learn about the full list of parts, check out the product website here.

HTC also dropped a video showing Mars CamTrack in action, featuring testimonials from Ryan Connolly of Film Riot, Norman Wang from Glassbox Technologies, Sam Gorski of Corridor Digital, and Paul Hamblin of Treehouse Digital.

The company is also demoing VIVE Mars CamTrack at the FMX conference in Stuttgart, Germany, from May 3-5. Check out the official event website here.
