Samsung and Asian entertainment company CJ ENM are working together on a new virtual production facility which will utilise the electronic giant’s technology.
Samsung will supply its display technology, The Wall, to CJ ENM’s virtual studio, a part of its television and film production studio complex scheduled to open in Paju, Korea later this year.
The custom virtual production volume studio will be the first in the world to leverage The Wall’s LED technology. The main display will be installed in an oval shape with a diameter of 20 metres and a height of seven metres or more.
This virtual production studio will use LED displays and connected cameras to create virtual settings in real-time.
The modular screens include precise colour expression, HDR10+ and cinema LED picture quality technology, as well as optimised frame rates for production houses.
“The strategic partnership with Samsung will allow CJ ENM to push forward the creation of a new powerhouse of the next-generation content,” said Ho-sung Kang, CJ ENM CEO. “While CJ ENM is investing $4.4 billion over the next five years in entertainment content, we are taking the lead in building a global number one production studio to become a world leading entertainment company.”
