Blend of simplicity and accuracy

Camera tracking device for TV studios and film.


Our ideal of camera tracking

Our goal at stYpe was to engineer a camera tracking solution that is simple to use, requires no recalibration and works with any camera, even handheld. As a result, we came up with RedSpy – a magnificent realization of our ideals.


Performance combined with power

Sets new speed and accuracy standards for tracking systems.

The traditional problem of optical tracking systems is limited camera cable bandwidth. With RedSpy, we looked ahead and developed special algorithms for FPGA to quickly compress the 4K image before it's sent over cable. This made the tracking faster, more responsive and more accurate.


Undercover. Every second counts

Unobtrusively detects its position using infrared LEDs.

Invisible and harmless, RedSpy’s LEDs allow the system to blend with any environment. Once installed, RedSpy can start tracking 20 seconds upon power-on and requires no recalibration.


Reliable marker based detection

Reflective markers make it equally suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

RedSpy emits infrared light which gets reflected back to the camera by reflective markers installed on the ceiling, side walls, or even the floor when used outdoors.


Camera Pedestals

Camera pedestals and RedSpy are a match made in AR heaven.

Free movement of in-studio camera pedestals has always been one of the hardest problems to solve when it comes to camera tracking. Today, with a technology like RedSpy, it has become our favourite 'problem' to solve.


Steadicam and handheld

Finally, a wireless solution for steadicam and handheld cameras.

RedSpy is the first solution on the market that can send data wirelessly. Additionally, it can be powered by a battery to be completely wire free, which is crucial for reliable steadicam operation.
