StarTracker

Once again, the BBC has opted for Mo-Sys Engineering’s tracking technology StarTracker for their Election Night studio.

This followed the resounding success of last year's coverage of the European and local elections using this technology. During the 2014 broadcast, around 23 hours of live election programming came from BBC Studios and Post Production's Elstree Studio D. Here, the Mo-Sys StarTracker system was attached to three of the studio's 12 Sony HDC-1500 cameras to create a virtual studio for presenter Jeremy Vine. Using unique reflective discs - 'stars' - on the studio ceiling, the system tracked these markers and sent positional information to the graphics engine in order to render the correct viewpoint. This allowed Vine and the cameras to move around the green screen environment without affecting the position of the virtual graphs and charts.
