The company’s technologically advanced solutions can be used with any camera, and in any environment, to deliver photorealistic real-time virtual and augmented graphics. Ncam’s patented technology is used by broadcasters, including BT Sport, Fox Sports, ESPN, Sky Deutschland and CNN, and has been used on blockbuster films such as Independence Day: Resurgence (20th Century Fox), Avengers: Age of Ultron (Marvel), Jupiter Ascending (Warner Bros.) and Edge of Tomorrow (Warner Bros.).
