The Wall, Samsung’s gigantic modular MicroLED panel has a new use: virtual cinema studio
MicroLED panels are here to stay. They made the jump to the market during 2020 and little by little we are seeing how they receive new uses. Samsung’s MicroLED The Wall panel will now be used for more than just showing movies: producing the movies themselves. It will be used in a virtual film studio to create the dynamic environments of each scene.
Just like Samsung announced, have teamed up with Korean producer CJ ENM to create a new virtual studio. Virtual studios are becoming more and more popular and have allowed create entire productions like ‘The Mandolarian’ from Disney. A holding that Samsung also wants to add.
Less chroma, more MicroLED
The idea behind this is surround the protagonists with a huge screen and show the scene environment on said screen. Being virtual, a studio like these allows you to easily change the color settings or any element without having to depend on external factors or physical elements. Likewise, you can see how the scene looks live without the need for extensive post-processing.
Chroma is removed and replaced by … by a large enough quality screen that can represent the entire scene. That screen is no other than the MicroLED panels. The MicroLED panels, in addition to having a great quality, They allow to build gigantic screens as they are modular and to be able to attach all the necessary.
In the case of Samsung, they are going to replace the chroma of the new CJ ENM studio in Paju, South Korea, with MicroLED panels from the The Wall. Samsung’s oval display will have a size of about 20 meters wide and more than 5 meters high.
According to Samsung, this screen “save time and reduce production and imaging costs in the place”. Samsung’s next-generation display has virtually no bezels, allowing you to create an infinite screen feel between connected panels. It allows a refresh rate of 120 Hz and if enough panels are put together, a solution of up to 16K is achieved.
MicroLED panels of this type may still take a few years to reach the walls of the average consumer’s living room. However, the next movie or series in turn may have made use of them to recreate the scenes.
