It complements and supports existing features including live subject calibration and unbreakable solving, as well as Kronos K8 4K SDI video support.


MoCap upgrade: Kronos K8 on track with Vicon’s Shogun Live

Kronos K8 is claimed to offer the lowest-latency multi-channel SDI IO interfaces, making it ideal for virtual production workflows. Shogun Live 1.6 now supports up to eight 3G or two quad-link 3G UHD low-latency SDI inputs and LTC Timecode input. Kronos K8 also has a dedicated SPG output for locking downstream equipment during production.

Bluefish444’s Epoch | 4K Neutron video card is also supported by Shogun Live 1.6, enabling up to three channels of low-latency SDI Input in a single PCIe card.
