Mo-Sys Engineering, a world leader in image robotics virtual production and remote production, will join forces with AOTO Electronics Co. Ltd., a specialist in LED application products, to showcase LED virtual production solutions aimed at broadcast news and factual programming at the NAB Show 2022.
In a live LED virtual production demonstration, Mo-Sys will demonstrate its LED content server VP Pro XR and its precision camera tracking system StarTracker, working with AOTO’s 2.3 pitch LED tiles. The demonstration will show how set extensions can be used to expand the studio space, and how the newly released Multi-Cam Switching feature can be used to seamlessly switch between live cameras at resolutions up to UHD4K, and without the LED wall delay appearing in shot.
“Creating outstanding content is how broadcasters can differentiate themselves in today’s fiercely competitive marketplace,” said Mo-Sys CEO Michael Geissler. “Bringing cinematic quality virtual production techniques into the broadcast environment gives customers the ability to innovate in a highly cost-efficient way and our collaboration with AOTO provides a clear demonstration of how our pioneering technology innovation and their unmatched cinematic quality LED tiles can deliver incredible results for broadcasters.”
As part of the demonstration, and in a ground-breaking move, Mo-Sys will also show its integration with Erizos Studio, enabling Unreal Engine graphics to be used not just for the virtual studios, but for traditional on-screen graphics, such as lower thirds and data-driven graphics, either embedded in the Unreal scene or as AR (Augmented Reality) objects. Erizos Studio provides the complete broadcast workflow, including industry standard newsroom computer system (NRCS) MOS integration. This development means that broadcasters can now use a single graphics platform to deliver all their graphics and utilize high quality LED wall background instead of a green screen to eliminate green spill issues completely.
Michael Huang, Senior Account Manager, AOTO Electronics Co. Ltd., commented: “Mo-Sys’ virtual production innovation is well known, but this technology is ground-breaking enabling LED virtual production to be used across broadcast whilst still complying with tried and trusted workflows.”
