Large, semicircle LED video walls are becoming the new choice for virtual backgrounds in the film & TV industry.
They are effectively replacing Green Screen shooting, as they give actors something to react to in real-time, and also create more realistic lighting on any reflective elements within the physical action.
But, one of the biggest issues facing the use of LED video walls is the way the camera 'sees' the colour emitted by the LED walls, compared to the live-action foreground elements.
Many companies that both supply LED video walls, as well as those that utilise them within their shooting, have adopted Colour Management tools from Light Illusion
to ensure an accurate match between the foreground and background, in-camera.
A combination of ColourSpace
, and suitable probes(s) is used for initial LED video wall calibration, with MatchLight
then used to auto-generate a 'driving' LUT for the LED walls, to ensure the captured foreground and background images match.
This is yet another example of how far advanced Light Illusion colour tools are, compared to any other supplier.
