Mo-Sys Sponsors Coverage of European Blind Football League at Royal National College for the Blind

Mo-Sys is proud to sponsor the coverage of European Blind Football League (EBFL), held at the Royal National College for the Blind’s leisure facility, thePoint4, on April 8th, 2023. CJP Broadcast Services, a partner of Mo-Sys, has been selected to provide multi-camera coverage of the tournament, which will be streamed live with commentary via the College’s YouTube channel. 

 European Blind Football League (EBFL)

As a partner of Mo-Sys, CJP Broadcast Services integrates Mo-Sys’ Virtual Production technologies into educational institutes in the UK, allowing students to learn about the latest technologies used in the broadcast and film industry. 

The tournament will feature six games between five European clubs, with the College team representing England. The event will also feature a series of short films introducing viewers to the origins and rules of blind football, as well as interviews with the England coach and players. These films produced by CJP Broadcast will be introduced by David Wooldridge, who will also conduct post-match interviews with players and managers. 

In addition, the event will be an opportunity to trial specialist devices to aid the viewing experience for partially sighted and completely blind individuals, including screens that use touch rather than sight and enhanced viewing glasses. 

The goal of the tournament is to share good practice and fair play, as well as opportunities for player development. The College is home to a dedicated Sports Academy for blind and visually impaired young people in Europe, making this event an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of blind sport and support its ongoing development. 

As a company that values accessibility and inclusivity, Mo-Sys is thrilled to be a part of an event that promotes the benefits and importance of blind sport. By working with CJP Broadcast Services and the Royal National College for the Blind, we hope to support the growth of blind sport and its place in the wider sporting community and look forward to a day of exciting football and sharing the passion of the players with a global audience. 

Magicbox Unveils Gen2 Mobile VP Superstudio™ with Mo-Sys StarTracker at NAB

Last year, Magicbox launched the first Mobile Virtual Production Superstudio™, a semi-trailer designed to make motion picture technology more accessible to any content producer. Building on the success of their first-generation studio, Magicbox has recently announced the unveiling of their second-generation truck at the NAB Show (Las Vegas, 15-19 April 2023). 

Magicbox Unveils Gen2 Mobile VP Superstudio™

In addition to its fully enclosed design, the second-generation Mobile Virtual Production Superstudio™ by Magicbox includes camera tracking capabilities provided by Mo-Sys’ StarTracker. The initial set-up of StarTracker is fast and can maintain its calibration even as the shape of the truck is transformed. These features make the studio an ideal solution for content creators looking for a flexible and efficient way to produce high-quality productions. 

At the NAB Show, both the first and second-generation trucks will be showcased. The first-generation truck will be in the NAB Inspiration Zone stage in the Central Hall, while the second-generation truck will be used to demonstrate a wide variety of motion picture productions. The Gen 2.0 is large and can accommodate many people inside, making it ideal for a wide range of applications. 

Mo-Sys is revved up to be joining Magicbox for its NAB debut and will be present on booth C8045 to demonstrate StarTracker and discuss your enquires for virtual production solutions. 

Mo-Sys Showcases Innovative Hybrid Virtual Production at HPA Tech Retreat

Mo-Sys Engineering recently showcased its hybrid workflow at the HPA Tech Retreat 2023, held at Rancho Mirage, CA.

Demonstration of Hybrid Virtual Production Workflow

This innovative hybrid approach offers directors and cinematographers the ability to produce content quickly and with great flexibility while unlocking significant cost savings.

The traditional approach to shooting final pixel (ICVFX) virtual production required a large LED volume, which can be prohibitively expensive.

Mo-Sys’ solution involves shooting wide shots against a green screen, with mids and close-ups shot in a small LED volume as illustrated above. This approach can significantly speed up production and provides a great opportunity to reduce costs.

By placing the green screen and smaller LED volume on the same stage, performers and technicians can move freely between them, creating a seamless production workflow.

It was an exciting opportunity for Mo-Sys to demonstrate this innovative solution at HPA Tech Retreat. If you missed it, be sure to get in touch with the team to learn more about how this technology can benefit your production. Contact Mo-Sys.

Mo-Sys Academy Celebrates 2nd Birthday

Mo-Sys’ Academy was established in 2021 with the clear aim of filling the growing skills gap around Virtual Production. As the Academy reaches its second anniversary, hundreds of industry professionals have upskilled to meet growing demand and stay ahead, and Mo-Sys’ VP knowledge has been shared with universities and teaching staff, who have left empowered to produce the VP Technicians of tomorrow.

Mo-Sys Academy students

Led by Juliette Thymi and Dominic Smith, Senior VP Technicians and experienced Virtual Production Producers who continue to work on projects for Netflix, ITV and BBC. Mo-Sys’ Academy aims to build students confidence and provide valuable hands-on practical experience, priding itself on a friendly, collaborative learning environment for all skill levels.

The team got off to an award-winning start in 2021. Students of the inaugural Virtual Production Practical Summer School, an intensive six-week course, quickly went on to win multiple awards at the University of Greenwich’ BAFTA styled film and television GRAFTAs for their short film, Balance.

The Academy was also the first of its kind to partner with universities, helping them to develop in-house Virtual Production curriculums and opening the doors to lecturers who attended the successful ‘Teach the Teacher’ program.

Speaking of his time at the Academy, Nicholas Glean, Senior Lecturer in Video and New Media at the University of Sunderland added “This two-week course was brilliant! From the first day to the last it was packed with information and fantastic knowledge delivered by welcoming and friendly tutors in Juliette and Dominic. This was supported by experts who came into our sessions and helped us reach another level of understanding. I cannot recommend this course enough.”

As demand grew, Mo-Sys expanded the Academy and now runs courses from its Los Angeles Refinery, which itself was established to provide a unique VP testing facility for cinematographers and where content producers can de-risk and refine their virtual production concepts, allowing them to experiment with new techniques and workflows.

To celebrate the Academy reaching its 2nd birthday, Mo-Sys is today announcing several new course dates in addition to a limited special offer. For each StarTracker ordered from 8th March and shipped before 28th April 2023, Mo-Sys will provide 1x FREE place on a 5-day Technician course (UK or USA), to be taken during 2023.
