Mo-Sys Engineering will include demonstrations and critical collaborations at IBC2022. The demonstrations will focus on applications for broadcast and cinematic production.
The European manufacturer Alfalite and its LED display Modularpix Pro 1.9mm, and eight-colour fos/4 LED lighting solutions from ETC will showcase the state of the art in live virtual production, including a multi-camera setup. The cameras will feed into Mo-Sys VP Pro XR software, which builds on the power of the Unreal Engine to create a seamless augmentation of real and virtual elements. The Alfalite LED wall features the patented system ORIM that provides a viewing angle of 175 degrees and greater protection against physical impacts or water ingress during filming. This demonstration will include the unique Cinematic XR focus feature of VP Pro XR, which allows the focus puller to shift seamlessly from real objects to virtual elements in a single operation, enabling an important storytelling feature also in LED volumes.
The IBC 2022 stand will also feature a green-screen studio, showing how the tools can be used in day-to-day broadcast production, such as for sports and news studios. Cameras will be tracked in position and orientation using StarTracker Max, the latest iteration of the Mo-Sys technology.
Visitors to the stand will be able to experience the smooth precise motion of the heavy-duty Mo-Sys U50 remote head which will be shown with Fujifilm’s autofocus box lens UA107 AF and the Vinten 750i as a pan bar control. Also featured will be the gyro-stabilised Mo-Sys G30 remote head, and the innovative new automated camera rail system that Mo-Sys will be launching at the show. The MoRail enables creative parallax shots featuring straight and curved tracks and is ideal for use in combination with PTZ cameras, like the Canon 4k unit in the Mo-Sys demonstration.
“Virtual Production has become a central part of our industry, whether on premium movie shoots or in day-to-day live television studios,” said Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys. “As a pioneer and leader in this field, we continue to innovate to give moviemakers and broadcasters powerful functionality to produce quickly, with a minimum of post-production, and with outstanding creativity, as we will show at IBC this year.”
“We are delighted to be back at IBC after the enforced break,” Geissler added. “You have to physically experience our products, not just to see the stunning results but to realise how easily they are achieved in the field. It is great to be able to showcase our technologies, and to talk to our users once again.”
