The installation was a key component of LRT upgrade to its news studios in Vilnius that included a large SmartTrack rail system to achieve the desired visual impact. The powerful SmartTrack system combines strength and finesse to support the rapid camera moves demanded, as well as ultra-slow, smooth on-air crawls. The range of on-air tracking shots provide unique camera motion adding interest and variation, without distracting from the serious nature of the news content and the overall production values.

Studio decorations are also smart and were selected from five 3D mock-ups options. All the ideas with sharp edges were rejected.

The video wall will display a virtual window which acts as an extension to the real studio space by creating a perspectively correct representation of the background based on camera position. This capability adds depth to the physical studio for displaying virtual graphics.
