Augmented Reality

In the world of entertainment content, augmented reality (AR) is the next frontier. And it's not just a technological step change, but also an editorial challenge as content-makers seek to harness the full creative potential of AR technologies.

ionoco is pioneering the use of AR for live broadcasts and recordings. The magic is all performed live on air.

With our user-friendly tracking technology from Mo-Sys, which is easily mounted on most camera models and mounts (Canon, Fujinon)  Jib, Pedestal, Technocrane, Hand-held and Steadicam) using a range of ionoco designed lens mapping algorithms to combine the real and virtual live.

Wireless and bespoke electronics

Functionality is central to our custom-designed wireless interface platform, which allows features such as buzzers and judge boxes to break free of the constraints of traditional set design. The cross-function platform can capture data in real time from a variety of sensor models. It was, for example, successfully used on ITV Studios/Syco's Red or Black? to integrate temperature, heart rate, tilt, acceleration, humidity and air pressure into the ionoLogic graphics system. The platform also powered a variety of devices on the BBC's game show Breakaway, including remote-control LEDs and switches. 

Our suite of wireless products also includes ionoDroid, a versatile graphical user interface for use on any Android device. Live host mimics, cue cards and live telestration are just some of the features made possible by ionoDroid, which has been used to support several hit shows, including Comedy Central’s Emmy Award-winning @midnight and Sky Living’s Love Machine.

Audience Voting Systems

Many years of experience in audience voting systems have resulted in a range of robust wireless products and systems that may be tailored to suit any studio or corporate environment. ionoco technology delivers both alphanumeric answers and feedback to keypads, allowing audiences to give an array of responses beyond ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Our systems can also capture demographic data and track contestant responses in real-time throughout the course of a show.

As the information feeds are processed by our show control system, the data is fed through to the production team and displayed graphically for easy interpretation. ionoco voting systems can be used successfully in any studio environment, as well as with wireless steady-cams and wifi-enabled devices on the 2.4Ghz and 5.4Ghz frequency spectrums. ionoco voting systems are complemented by a selection of reliable, radio-frequency wireless keypads, including Reply Systems and Clikapad.
