UK/KOR: Mo-Sys Engineering has announced that it has signed a partnership with South Korean dealer GMS International to make its cutting-edge augmented reality and Virtual Production solutions available to cinematographers and broadcasters in the country. The agreement will help to meet growing demand for Virtual Production in Korea’s dynamic media market, one of the leading early adopters of Virtual Production.
GMS International has over 20 years’ experience of supporting broadcasters and media organisations in the South Korean market from its headquarters on the outskirts of Seoul. The GMS team has extensive knowledge of working with some of the major names in the Korean media world and delivers consultancy, installation, and system design services.
Mo-Sys has been a driving force in the use of realtime augmented reality and virtual studios in broadcast, and in the growing use of LED walls and LED volumes for movie production and for live events. Its unrivalled StarTracker system embodies Mo-Sys’ expertise in camera robotics and the company delivers complete end-to-end systems through its VP Pro XR media server.
“South Korea is recognised as one of the markets driving forward Virtual Production adoption and as a pioneer in this area, Mo-Sys has the tools and technology to meet the rise in demand,” said Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys. “The combination of GMS’ knowledge of the market and our own expertise of Virtual Production makes for a strong synergy and together we can match the needs of customers to the right tools that allow them to create amazing content in new and exciting ways.”
The agreement with GMS will see Mo-Sys StarTracker and the VP Pro XR system made available to customers in Korea. Mo-Sys technology integrates seamlessly with major LED volume providers, including ALFALITE and addresses some of the major challenges that arise with live Virtual Production and LED volume integration.
Hyungjun Kim, CEO of GMS International commented: “Mo-Sys’ unique technology and solutions meet the Virtual Production needs of the high-end content producers here in South Korea better than any other provider, allowing customers to express their creativity with no constraints. We look forward to a successful and fruitful partnership with them”.
