StarTracker PTZ (Panasonic)

Mo-Sys Engineering Ltd

The Mo-Sys StarTracker PTZ is an add-on for the new generation of 4K PTZ cameras which adds 4 axes of camera tracking (X,&,Z & roll) to reveal the full 3D space of your virtual studio.

Positional camera tracking

The StarTracker PTZ adds and merges XYZ positional tracking data to the 4K PTZ camera’s PTZ and provides focus tracking data, enabling full 3D 6-axes camera movement in a virtual studio. The true 3D space of the virtual studio can then be revealed, through parallax and perspective changes, thus creating a more compelling and immersive virtual set experience for the viewer.

Customized wrap-round StarTracker unit

The aesthetically pleasing design of the StarTracker PTZ fits around the 4K PTZ camera unit, enabling the full range of camera movement and zoom control.

Direct attachment to jibs, dollies

Simple mounting to tripods, jibs, dollies, and rails, without a traditional camera head.

Manual or remote movement/remote PTZ

The combined StarTracker PTZ and 4K PTZ camera, can be moved manually or remotely using rails, jibs, or cranes. Because the tracking in StarTracker PTZ is absolute, the camera’s position in the virtual set is always known, and it never requires ‘homing’ on power-up.

Mo-Sys Jib Control Device

As an optional extra, Mo-Sys have developed an interface box to mount the StarTracker PTZ and 4K PTZ camera on a jib, and to operate the camera from the end of the jib. This allows full pan, tilt, zoom and focus control, using industry standard Jimmy jib input devices, and creates a highly cost-effective jib package with a remote head and 6 axes tracking for virtual studios and augmented reality.

Remote Configuration

In order to setup, control, or adjust multiple StarTracker PTZ units remotely through a single interface, Mo-Sys has developed StarTracker Studio Manager. This provides a simplified method of accessing each StarTracker PTZ unit, reducing the time taken adjust each unit for the virtual set/AR elements currently loaded. This is available as an optional extra.
