What Is it?

In a crowded market it’s increasingly important for companies to create compelling and differentiated video content, whether it’s for brand exposure, to sell a product or service, or to train or educate.
It’s one of the reasons why virtual studios are increasingly favoured over traditional physical studios, but there are other reasons too:

  • transforms a small physical studio into a much
    larger virtual studio
  • adds significant production value to the
    appearance of a studio
  • removes physical set building costs
  • enables almost instant studio set changes
  • adds the ability to include remote guests in the
    virtual studio
  • enables augmented product placement

For companies outside the broadcast industry, the cost and complexity of putting a virtual studio together, installing and setting it up correctly, and then managing it as an on-going concern, can make this a difficult option to choose.

Geared to Corporates and Enterprises

Mo-Sys, as the world leader in precision camera tracking solutions, has created a complete virtual studio solution geared to corporates and enterprises, that makes acquiring, setting up and using a virtual studio, simple and cost-effective.

This is a pre-configured high-performance 4K solution. All of the complex integration issues have been taken care of, enabling setup and deployment to be as simple as possible. The system provides 3x tracked cameras; one on a rolling tripod, one on rails, and one on a jib, to give customers the variety of shots they will need. It also includes smart technology to save on costs or to add production value, including:

  • direct connect graphics plugin – direct connection into the UE4 photo-realistic graphics engine, removing the need to purchase additional virtual set software licences for each camera
  • smart switching – only one keyer module is used for all three cameras, removing the need to purchase a keyer module for each camera
  • remote talent inclusion – using our Beam In technology, the ability to bring remote talent into a virtual set, when it’s not possible to get them to the studio

The system has been designed to incorporate the very latest in photo-realistic graphics capability, including:

  • ray tracing (hyper realistic reflections)
  • occlusion handling (talent can walk in front and behind a virtual object)
  • soft shadows (lighting realism)
  • reflection mapping (talent reflections on adjacent virtual objects)

Virtual Production

Mo-Sys understands that companies new to virtual production, will need help and expertise installing and setting up the system, training staff, and accessing on-going product support.

With this in mind, Mo-Sys will be using a newly developed interactive remote service and diagnostics system, that will make support and training simple for customers to access.
The experience Mo-Sys has accumulated over the years working with customers such as BBC, Sky, Fox, ESPN, CNN, The Weather Channel and Netflix, has enabled Mo-Sys to create an all-in-one virtual studio solution where all of the typical virtual studio issues have been resolved, and all of its accumulated expertise has been engineered in.

Combined with a highly attractive price, and our extensive support services, the Mo-Sys StarTracker Studio is the smart way to deploy a virtual studio in your organisation.
