Mo-Sys To Introduce TimeCam

Mo-Sys Engineering will demonstrate how to remotely operate cameras on the other side of the world, without perceived delay, with the launch of TimeCam. 

Mo-Sys said TimeCam will allow the company to reveal the latest in virtual studio and augmented reality. TimeCam represents a triple benefit to production companies.

First, there is the saving in cost and environmental impact in sending camera operators to a site. Second, it means that the most in-demand operators can be much more productive, providing excellent coverage at a live event each day rather than losing time through travel.

Third, it means users can add cameras to coverage without adding headcount. For example, a downhill ski race might have eight cameras along the course, with one operator controlling cameras 1, 3, 5 and 7 and a second controlling 2, 4, 6 and 8.

Mo-Sys will also demonstrate its flagship virtual studio technology StarTracker, which uses a constellation of dots on the studio ceiling as a camera tracking system.

This is now extensively used by many broadcasters to provide the tracking for augmented reality studios and is increasingly being built-in to studio cameras.
