Bild Studios new London-based virtual production stage is employing tech from Brompton Technology as it aims to make the technique more accessible.
The MARS Volume studio is powered by three Tessera SX40 4K LED processors and multiple Tessera XD 10G data distribution units from Brompton Technology alongside a 25.5m by 5m AOTO LED.
“Our high resolution AOTO LED panels powered by Tessera SX40 bring any type of video content to life,” said co-founder Rowan Pitts. “For MARS Volume, precise onscreen colour adjustment and control was a key requirement. Tessera is the industry’s gold standard and is just brilliant at bringing a full spectrum of colours out on the screen and providing us with the control required for even the most challenging shoots.”
The company has also been working with LA-based Lux Machina on bigger-scale productions located at Warner Brothers V Stage and Apple Studios, which has helped the Bild team gain the necessary expertise in real-time in camera VFX production technology.
“Even though virtual production technology has been around for a few years now, there is still a lot of education needed to demonstrate what’s possible and what’s not,” added Pitts. “By working with companies that produce reliable, quality equipment such as Brompton Technology, we can make sure that no matter how big or small the production budget is, we can always deliver what the client wants. We are positive we will see a lot more productions being filmed at MARS as the year continues to unfold, and we continue to develop leading innovation techniques within the virtual production workflow.”
