Mobile XR Stage - Virtual Production

LED Volume for Virtual Production

The film and TV industry is experiencing a technological revolution. The interest in virtual production exploded with the release of the Mandalorian TV series behind-the-scenes documentary and continues to be at the forefront of many industry professionals. 

Virtual production is a rapidly-evolving field that combines live-action filming with virtual environments and computer-generated imagery (CGI) to create stunning visual effects and seamless integration of real and virtual elements. With the advancement of technology, XR stage virtual production has become more accessible and efficient, allowing filmmakers and content creators to film complex scenes and shots in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods. As a result, more and more filmmakers and content creators adopt LED video wall volumes in their productions.

One of the most exciting technological advancements in virtual production has been the advancement of LED video wall technology. LED volumes are essentially giant video screens that surround the filming area and display virtual environments and backgrounds in real time, creating a fully-immersive experience for the actors and crew. This technology allows filmmakers to capture at XR stages live-action footage  seamlessly integrated with CGI backgrounds and elements, resulting in a final film footage that looks and feels like it was shot on location.

Encorex has been at the forefront of utilizing LED walls in live and virtual productions and has worked on various projects ranging from blockbuster films to high-profile commercials.

One of the key benefits of LED volume technology is its ability to create a fully-immersive experience for the actors and crew at an XR stage studio. LED volumes are essentially made up of a series of LED panels assembled to create a seamless screen. These panels come in various sizes and resolutions, allowing for customization based on the production's needs. With traditional green screen technology, actors often have to imagine the virtual environment they are supposed to interact with, which can be challenging and limit their ability to deliver a natural and convincing performance. With LED screen volumes, however, the virtual environment is displayed in real-time, allowing actors to see and interact with the environment as if it were real.

This immersive experience benefits not only the actors but also the crew. By displaying the virtual environment at XR stage in real time, the crew can see exactly how the scene will look in the final product, allowing them to adjust lighting, camera angles, and other elements as needed. This saves time and resources that would otherwise be spent on post-production and allows for a more efficient and streamlined production process.

Another key benefit of LED wall technology is its ability to create stunning visual effects and backgrounds. With traditional green screen technology, the final product can often look artificial and unconvincing as the CGI elements are added in post-production. On the other hand, LED volumes allow for seamless integration of real and virtual elements, resulting in a final product that looks and feels like it was shot on location.

This technology has already been used in many high-profile projects, including Disney's "The Mandalorian," which used a massive LED screen volume to create a fully-realized virtual environment for the show's live-action footage. The success of "The Mandalorian" has helped to popularize LED volume technology and has inspired other filmmakers and content creators to explore its potential.

Encorex has been instrumental in developing new techniques and workflows for LED Wall Systems and has collaborated with top LED manufacturers to push the boundaries of what is possible in virtual production.

What is XRVFX?

XRVFX is a virtual production technology that enables filmmakers and content creators to create realistic and immersive environments for their projects. It combines Extended Reality (XR) and Visual Effects (VFX), seamlessly integrating real and virtual elements. XR (extended reality) is an umbrella term that encompasses virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR). These technologies allow users to immerse themselves in digital environments and interact with virtual objects in real time. VFX, on the other hand, is the process of creating digital effects for film and television. It involves using software tools to create realistic and believable visual effects added to live-action footage. XRVFX combines the power of these two technologies to create virtual environments (XR stages) that can be used in real time during production. This allows filmmakers to see how their shots will look before they are filmed, saving time and money in post-production. Meet Our Partner

Why use camera tracking?

Camera tracking is the process of capturing the movement of a camera in real-world space and using that information to place virtual objects and characters in the same space. This is done using specialized software and a variety of sensors, including GPS, accelerometers, and gyroscopes. By accurately tracking the camera’s movement, virtual objects can be seamlessly integrated into live-action footage, creating a truly immersive experience for the viewer. We have developed a cutting-edge camera tracking system specifically designed for virtual production. Our system uses a combination of high-precision sensors and advanced algorithms to deliver incredibly accurate tracking data in real-time. This allows filmmakers to see how their virtual objects will interact with the real world, making it easier to plan shots and create realistic-looking scenes.

LED Volumes have become essential to virtual production, providing a cost-effective and efficient alternative to traditional green screens and backdrops. With the use of advanced technologies such as XRVFX, Unreal Engine, and camera tracking, LED Volumes offer a range of creative possibilities for filmmakers, allowing for real-time rendering of virtual environments and seamless integration of virtual objects into the physical environment. Our LED wall rentals provide a flexible and cost-effective solution for filmmakers, allowing for customization to suit the specific needs of each production. As virtual production studios continue to grow in popularity, LED walls will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the future of filmmaking.
