Samsung Electronics today announced its continued commitment to the future of virtual production with its new digital signage series.

“The Virtual Production Wall opens the door to unlimited potential for filmmakers, producers and studios by amplifying digital effects, while making virtual content creation easier, faster and more cost-effective,” said Hoon Chung, executive vice president of visual display business at Samsung Electronics. “Each feature has been carefully selected to enable businesses across all industries to embark on their virtual content creation journey with an unprecedented level of quality. »
Samsung’s cutting-edge visual display technology delivers powerful production capabilities that extend reality. Production studios can use ultra-wide LED walls to create virtual content, integrating them with real-time visual effects technology to reduce the time and cost of content production. The Wall for Virtual Production is a leader in this type of application and can amplify projects by adding realistic levels of detail, textures, volume and nuance to virtual content creation environments. New IVC model options, P1.68 and P2.1, include a curvature range that can extend up to 5800R, creating a more realistic field of view. The display also incorporates an updated genlock function that keeps The Wall in line with system signals, so there are no dropped or doubled frames. This capability, combined with the enhanced Phase Shift feature that adjusts the delay between camera and screen, ensures a perfect picture.
To display colors as accurately and consistently as possible, The Wall for Virtual Production offers 3D lookup tables (LUTs) for color correction, wide-gamut HDR color processing, and color adjustment between individual cabinets or modules. Meanwhile, the integrated Virtual Production Management (VPM) software and its intuitive interface make screen management easier and more efficient and ensure the best possible image quality in a virtual production environment. The VPM is also capable of detecting and resolving any potential LED issues.
Additionally, The Wall for Virtual Production is designed for any studio environment, regardless of the scale of construction demand. Whether for a volume studio or an XR studio, The Wall for Virtual Production makes the production of immersive content possible.
“We are delighted to support Samsung with the exciting launch of IVC The Wall for Virtual Production series at this year’s IBC. Building on our heritage in building cutting-edge virtual production and XR broadcast studios, we are excited about the powerful new tools that the IVC Series brings,” said Andy Hook, Director of Technical Solutions at White Light. “These tools give us enormous scope to create even more impactful and flexible virtual production environments and continue to drive progress and transformation in this space. »
