Mo-Sys is partnering with leading Thai television broadcaster Thairath TV and manufacturer LG to open a virtual production academy in Asia Pacific (APAC).

The academy will be located in Bangkok, Thailand, and will offer Mo-Sys’ unique range of hands-on, practical virtual production courses.

Established in 2021, Mo-Sys’ Virtual Production Academy was the first to provide hands-on practical virtual production training. The Academy specialises in courses based around small group activities designed to transfer knowledge and build confidence.

The training has been carefully designed to help participants build the skills and experience they need to succeed in the growing field of virtual production.

“The demand for skilled virtual production technicians is growing rapidly, and we are excited to expand our academy to APAC together with Thairath TV, LG and the support of Epic Games, where we will address the regional skills gap,” said Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys.

“Our academy will provide participants with the knowledge and experience they need to be successful.”

The new APAC Academy courses will be delivered from Thairath TV’s Palace Studio which will double as a permanent VP technology open house to showcase the very latest product developments.

Beginning early September 2023, the Academy APAC partnership will provide participants with best-in-class training together with access to state-of-the-art virtual production facilities and equipment.

A grand opening event will be held on 10th August 2023 at Thairath TV’s Palace Studio in Bangkok. This will feature demonstrations of virtual production technology, presentations from the industry’s leading experts and valuable networking opportunities.

“I am excited to announce the opening of our APAC Academy,” said Nok Yupapak Tawanna, Vice President, APAC Region for Mo-Sys.

“The Academy will provide world-class VP training opportunities and I can’t thank our amazing partners Thairath TV, LG and Epic Games enough for their support.”

During the open event, Epic Games’ Unreal Engine Business Director, Bernt Kare Johannessen will provide insight about the Unreal product roadmap and introduce a User Summit.

Sean Cho of LG Electronics will present the latest LED display technology for virtual production and introduce the company’s complete studio solutions for broadcast, cinematic and corporate VP and XR applications.
