Sunday 21 May
Cinematography in Virtual Production: Masterclass: Lights, Camera, LED


Revolutionising Colour in Virtual Production with Brompton: LEDs, Processors & Lighting

Virtual production using LED walls can be challenging. If not set up correctly, you can end up with distracting visual artefacts on camera that get in the way of selling the illusion to the audience. Likewise, if you don’t fully control your colour, foreground elements do not match the virtual background and skin tones can look discoloured and unnatural. In this session we will show common problems to be aware of when shooting with LED and discuss how LED processing can help combat these. It will also include a preview of Brompton’s new TrueLight technology, significantly improving colour reproduction when using LED panels for lighting, for better skin tones and blending of foreground elements with virtual environments.
