Mo-Sys Engineering is partnering with creative technology specialists Bendac to showcase the very best of ICVFX, final pixel virtual production at the Media Production & Technology Show (stand J42, Olympia London, 10 – 11 May). The booth will feature Mo-Sys’ StarTracker Max in a demonstration of Cinematic XR Focus together with an impressive 8x3m Bendac LED wall along with ETC lighting provided by 3LR.
Mo-Sys has become a standard in precision camera tracking, and the MPTS demonstration will feature the latest version of its StarTracker technology. StarTracker Max delivers real advantages over its predecessor, with a smaller and lighter on-camera unit making it much easier to use with Steadicam and handheld cameras. The new platform also provides even greater accuracy, and the software architecture has been designed to allow for new functionality in the future, including a web interface to be introduced shortly.
At MPTS, as in so many real-world implementations, StarTracker Max will feed into Mo-Sys’ VP Pro XR, a powerful plugin that sits directly within Unreal Engine. Designed specifically for Broadcast and Cinematic content creation, this purpose-built toolset offers unique features, including Cinematic XR Focus and Multi-Camera Switching. Cinematic XR Focus allows cinematographers to pull focus between real and virtual objects, seamlessly and with intuitive operation using familiar focus controllers like Teradek or Preston. Visitors to the booth will also learn how Mo-Sys’ Cinematic XR Focus can be deployed to control moiré patterning, one of the biggest challenges for LED virtual production.
“Virtual and augmented production is the hottest creative topic of the moment, and everyone at MPTS will want to see the leading edge of what can be achieved, practically and cost-effectively,” said Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys. “Through partnering with Bendac we are able to build a fully working studio on the show floor and let visitors see what can really be done in immersive, dynamic production, and how we at Mo-Sys are directly addressing the real creative issues, providing a powerful and complete solution.”
