coolux GmbH, the creators of the award winning Pandoras Box product family, will present a revolutionary new product for real-time tracking and projection-mapping applications at this year’s LDI.

The new coolux ID Tags will make real-time tracking scenarios not only easier to set up, but also more reliable, more versatile, and more cost-effective.

Interactive projections, camera automation, stage tracking and lighting control are just some of the many different areas in which this new product will offer great benefits and flexibility. Each of the tags can be addressed with a unique ID, which opens up the possibility of up to 256 different unique IDs being tracked in real-time within a single setup.

One individual tag has two LEDs onboard and can have between one to two additional infrared LEDs attached to it. Tracking people or objects this way is achieved using a purely optical transmission system, thus avoiding the many pitfalls of radio control based setups.

The coin sized ID Tags can be easily attached to set pieces, costumes or any other part of a tracking ¬setup. The tiny gadgets can be fitted with button cell batteries with enough power to last over 10 hours. Alternatively, a micro USB port can be used for connecting additional power sources.
