London’s Garden Studios is employing both the VP Pro XR server and StarTracker camera and lens tracking system from Mo-Sys for use on its virtual production stage.
VP Pro XR is a purpose-built scalable XR server that enables traditional shooting techniques within LED volumes. According to Mo-Sys, one of its unique features is Cinematic XR Focus enabling focus pulls between talent or objects in the physical studio, and virtual objects positioned deep in the virtual world displayed in the LED volume.
“We already use Mo-Sys VP Pro software with StarTracker for our main LED volume, what we wanted was set extension (XR) capability in order to offer clients additional creative capability,” said Mark Pilborough-Skinner, virtual production supervisor, Garden Studios. “We chose VP Pro XR for its set extension quality and unique cinematic XR features, but also because it’s designed by a highly innovative company that understands film, television, and broadcast production.”
Michael Geissler, CEO, Mo-Sys added: “We designed VP Pro XR to deliver Cinematic XR capability, to solve known issues when shooting in LED volumes, and to deliver the specific capabilities demanded by film and broadcast creatives. We’re delighted to have such a forward-thinking company as Garden Studios as a customer, and we appreciate their continued investment in Mo-Sys technology.”
