Taiwan’s first LED video walls make green screens obsolete for movie studios

Taiwan’s first LED video walls make green screens obsolete for movie studios

2022-07-29

The future of film is no longer green. Traditionally, the green screen was vital to create special effects. But a new method using high-resolution LED panels puts actors straight into virtual worlds. Now a Taiwanese movie studio has fitted the LED video walls, making the green screen obsolete. Let’s visit the studio for a peek at the future of Taiwanese movies.

The Mandalorian is full of thrilling action scenes. Most memorable are intergalactic fights that seem to catapult the actors into outer space. Getting real actors seamlessly integrated with CGI imagery was all possible thanks to LED screens.

Traditionally, film studios were like the one I’m in here. You had to use a green screen for the background, so special effects could be added in post-production. But now we have these film-quality LED walls. Actors can step right into the scene.

With the new LED video walls, you can create the scene without any post-production effects. The first LED wall studio in Taiwan has now been unveiled. Its LEDs have 1.875 millimeter pixel pitch, brightness up to 1,500 nits, 8K resolution and a refresh rate of 7,680 hertz. For non-experts: they’re good. With frames as smooth as this, Hollywood has competition.

Lu Chun-hao
Digital studio brand CEO
Taiwan is lucky to have such a powerful semiconductor supply chain. So in the last two years, we could really push to catch up with Hollywood. This technology is really very close to the specs they have for LED screens in Hollywood. And we can get all this made in Taiwan.

Chu Mu-tao
ITRI Electro-optic Systems Institute
It’s brand-new technology. We can imagine how lively interest will be. There is quite some difficulty in filming on a real location.

The global market for large LED video walls was worth almost US$6.4 billion in 2021. That was up 15% from the year before. Experts say it could grow to US$12 billion by 2025. Massive investment is pouring into the technology.

“過去傳統的攝影棚就和我手邊這座一樣,背景都要用綠色打造,方便來做後製,但現在有了這座電影級的LED背景屏,讓演員能夠身歷其境。”

不用後製,就能進到電影場景,台灣首座電影級的虛影棚,正式亮相,內部建置1.875mm小間距LED,和1200到1500nits以上亮度搭配的8K的畫質,提升視覺細緻度外,7680HZ的刷新率,也讓虛擬場景能快速切換,拍出好萊塢等級的電影場景。

“台灣有幸我們這個半導體的供應鏈非常的強大,所以在這兩年當中,我們可以急起直追,完全是跟好萊塢的背景屏拍攝規格很接近的一個技術,在台灣我們能夠完全MIT。”

[[工研院電光系統所營運總監 朱慕道]]
“完全新的技術,我們可以想像它一定會很熱絡,如果說你要做實地的拍攝有它一定的困難。”

根據統計,去年全球LED大型拼接顯示牆市場,規模將達到63.51億美元,年增14.9%,預計到2025年成長到120.17億美元,也讓業者們不斷推陳出新,瞄準龐大的影視商機。
