How did the Dead and Buried team use an iPad to look into the virtual world?

I was at OC5 and played in the awesome 3v3 Dead and Buried demo. The gameplay was great, but I am confused about how the multiplayer experience worked.
  1. How did an iPad look into the game and how was it tracked? 
  2. Was each game started with one of the 6 headsets that the players wore or was there some master device controlling the experience (such as the iPad)

I read in an interview somewhere that the iPad was just another player, just as a floating camera, the tracking was done using AR kit and the front-facing camera (using the symbols in the area as points of reference)

Each headset connected to a "server" a bit like joining a multiplayer game on steam. Each game a position relative to the area back to the server so that other players would see that player in the right position.

They did it the same way Brad Pitt did it in Cool World!

@LZoltowski could you elaborate more on how they used AR kit? I'd be happy to look at the interview if you remember where it is
