Is Virtual Production LED Video Wall Replacing Green Screen?

October 28, 2022

A silent revolution is happening in the film and production industry. Virtual production LED video walls are enabling film studios and production companies to create immersive and dynamic sets and backgrounds, based on simple LED panels instead of elaborate and costly set designs.

LED video walls is a revolutionary way to create stunning backgrounds using a massive multi-panel display configuration consisting of many smaller, high pixel density panels configured to create one single massive LED video display.

Virtual production is often the term used to refer to this new type of video production method using a huge cyclorama curving around a central space for props, physical sets and live actors.

Among many other benefits, a LED video wall provides a new level of control to a production which is absent in a traditional green screen shoot by allowing the production crew to capture the visual effects LIVE on set.

This means the action and the background are happening at once, allowing everyone – including directors and actors/speakers – to make adjustments in real-time.

Probably the biggest difference between shooting on green screen vs. LED wall is the post-production process. It takes much less time and effort to edit and reduces overall costs.
