News Image
Mo-Sys Engineering has been recognized and has received the first Blackmagic Design Innovation Award during IBC2022 for its significant and continued contribution to advancing Virtual Production technologies.

Innovation lies at very heart of Mo-Sys Engineering. From its HQ in Greenwich, London the company has pioneered Virtual Production technology for decades. Mo-Sys created the first easy to use, marker-based camera tracking solution StarTracker, which is recognized as the industry’s leading camera tracking product for its accuracy, reliability and robustness. StarTracker is used extensively by leading broadcasters, major film studios, high-end drama and corporate clients around the world.

The company has also developed an unrivalled level of on-set experience through its direct support of content producers like Netflix, BBC and ITV, where Mo-Sys’ Virtual Production technology has brought prestigious projects like Strictly Come Dancing, Limitless and Macy’s Day Parade to life. This on-set knowledge and experience is utilized to drive continuous innovation and product development.

Mo-Sys has also made a significant commitment to education. It was the first company to establish a Virtual Production training Academy, and offers a range of unique hands-on courses based around practical, small group learning geared to build students confidence and provide valuable experience. Mo-Sys’ Academy offers courses for all levels, providing students with an introduction to Virtual Production, as well as upskilling industry professionals and collaborating directly with universities to transfer knowledge, teach-the-teacher and shape curriculums.

Coinciding with the Blackmagic Design Innovation Award, Mo-Sys unveiled a raft of new products at IBC. Customers were treated to their first look at StarTracker Max, the next generation of professional inside-out camera tracking. The programmable and motorized rail system for PTZ and ENG cameras, MoRail was demonstrated for news and sports broadcast and bMR, Mo-Sys’ new solution which combines an LED content server with MOS/NRCS data driven on-air graphics was also announced.

The Blackmagic Design Innovation Award is a brand new annual award recognising an organisation that is pushing the boundaries of science and technology using Blackmagic Design products. This special award has been created to identify and recognize unique and creative implementations of Blackmagic Design technology in both product and solution design for solving technical and financial barriers to customer challenges.

"Mo-Sys is one of the great rising stars of the Virtual Production industry, and their approach redefines the boundaries of cost-effective virtual creativity," said Tim Siddons, Director of Sales, Blackmagic Design EMEA. "Their approach to designing and delivering the StarTracker virtual studio system, based around URSA Mini, ATEM and HyperdDeck, provides a complete solution that removes the complexity of virtual studio configuration and calibration, enabling customers to focus on the creative aspects of delivering their visions."

"There is a strong alignment between Blackmagic Design and Mo-Sys. Both companies are pushing boundaries and making technology more accessible to a wider market. Mo-Sys developed the first optical tracking system 25 years ago and has continued to move Virtual Production forward VP through innovation," said Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys Engineering. "It is great honour that our contribution has been recognized with this award and I’d like to thank the Tim and the team at Blackmagic Design."
