More About Max

Max was developed with the benefit of Mo-Sys’ unrivaled 25 years of experience in camera tracking and marks the beginning of a new platform that builds on trusted StarTracker technology.The new lightweight and miniaturized StarTracker Max leverages improved hardware and algorithms to produce Mo-Sys’ most accurate tracking solution to date and promises an exciting development path of game-changing capabilities.

Tech Specs

StarTracker Max auto-alignment technology simplifies set-up and ensures ultra-precise studio calibration. Once set up, StarTracker Max is fully autonomous with no need for costly, time-consuming daily re-calibration. With rapid star map discovery, a new user-friendly interface (iOS and Android), and a simple D-Tap power inlet, StarTracker Max sets a new standard for set-and-forget professional tracking.

StarTracker Max is optimized for use in studio spaces up to 100 x 100m with no explicit upper limit, and ceiling heights >16m with appropriately sized and spaced stars. Immune from occlusion and blind spotting often experienced by ‘outside-in’ tracking systems, StarTracker Max provides absolute ‘inside-out’ tracking.

StarTracker Max delivers 6-axis tracking with lens zoom and focus for precision blending of photo realistic 3D virtual graphics with the real-world scenes and objects. Its 130-degree field of view sensor enables tracking even on a camera pointing straight down, with zero drift accumulation and ultra-fast star map discovery.

Design Background

“We are excited to announce more details about StarTracker Max,” said Stephen Gallagher, Marketing Director of Mo-Sys. “The team has worked hard to improve on an already successful design. StarTracker Max has been miniaturized and operates at higher resolution with a higher framerate to produce our most accurate camera tracking solution ever, and it does this while still avoiding any need for external PCs as all processing is handled within the 450g unit.”
