Factory Optic designed the MARK ZERO to simplify the bridge between cinema lenses and virtual production systems, such as Unreal Engine. The SYNCRO-LINK MARK-ZERO can connect to lenses with the Cooke /i data interface, which provides all typical lens values (focus distance, T stop, focal length, entrance pupil position, depth of field with near and far focus, and hyperfocal distance), as well as the Fujinon Premista zoom lenses and Zeiss Supreme prime lenses (which support Zeiss eXtended Data), and can also provide lens distortion and shading/vignetting data. All metadata is sampled at the same rate as the incoming SYNC, up to 60 times per second. Metadata output, as calibrated by the lens manufacturer, has the advantage of not requiring user lens calibration. Live streaming of lens data to Unreal Engine, or any server for virtual production is accomplished over Ethernet.

The combination of a lens with Zeiss eXtended Data, the Mark Zero and the available open source plugins for Unreal Engine makes for the quickest setup.
