Powering up virtual production

From action to engine – The LDT-V1 takes real world lens movements and translates these into actual lens values. This in turn is streamed directly into the DCS Plugin which controls the digital lens natively in Unreal Engine. Any lens, any camera and all in the blink of an eye.

How LDT works with virtual production sets

The LDT connects to the Preston MDR or DXL Cmotion FIZ module. It takes the motor positions and translates this into real lens values. These values are then sent to Unreal Engine, whilst simultaneously being recorded either in the camera raw files or on an SD card
in the device itself.

Key benefits for Virtual Production

Lense agnostic

Lense agnostic

The LDT system is designed to work with any lens by using information from the follow focus motors already mounted to the lens.

Camera agnostic

Camera agnostic

When streaming lens information straight into Unreal Engine, the camera is bypassed. However the LDT-V1 can also inject metadata into many professional digital cameras.
