Trace GP Camera Management System     

Trace X8 System

The Trace X8 is the perfect multi camera system for any track based event - thoroughbreds, trotting, greyhounds, track skating, athletics, speed skating, track cycling and even swimming - any sport where the targets travel along a predetermined path.


A single operator can correctly frame, focus and follow the dynamic action with 8 cameras simultaneously.  The Trace X8 is the only patented camera system in the world that can automatically track targets from multiple cameras within a track environment.  

Trace GP System

The Trace GP determines the precise location of a speeding target and its physical form, then sophisticated software enables the Operator to choreograph the most extraordinary sports cinematography on the fly. Perfect framing, perfect focus and amazing accurate fluid movements. What was previously impossible, is now possible in real time with the patented Trace GP. 

The revolutionary Trace GP has been designed for: All race cars, bikes, karts, planes, boats, extreme sports, winter sports, and Hollywood stunts.  If it moves fast, then the Trace GP is the desired camera system.
