LED LAMPS SOLUTION

There are plenty of LED brands on the LED
display market. When choosing the LED lamp
brands few parameters are very important to
take into account if we want to achieve a
Virtual Production or XR studio LED screen
standard

This particular parameter counts for more than 30% of the total price of the LED screen so it’s capital to consult a specialist that can best advise you. We recommend

what is Color Gamut

The color gamut describes a range of color within the spectrum of colors that are identifiable by the human eye (visible color spectrum). Since most displays are limited in the colors that they can produce, each device will also follow one or more color standards that define its specific color gamut. First we must understand how color gamut is depicted on a technical level. Presented as a triangle on an XYZ axis, the Y refers to the maximum color luminance possible within the gamut, while the X and Z points indicate the complete range of chromaticities — a color’s hue and colorfulness. When all is said and done, the final result perfectly reflects a color gamut’s range of capabilities

Which frameworks set the standard for color production?

The answer lies in color standards, which relate directly to standardized color gamuts. With that in mind, common color standards include:

Rec 709
DCI-P3
REC 2020
REC 709
Adobe RGB
CG-3184k
NTSC

Color gamut is directly linked to the chosen LED lamp series you get so before buying the LED lamps, make sure to create a sample and test it to ensure it can reach the color gamut standard required.

Here is an example of the Color gamut coming from Nationstar NH series that can reach 93% of the DCI-P3.

What is HDR?
HDR

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and refers to the contrast (or the difference) between the brightest and darkest parts of an image.

The idea is that your eyes can perceive whites that are brighter and blacks that are darker than traditional SDR TVs had been able to display. HDR content preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of a picture, details that are often lost using old imaging standards such as Rec.709.

HDR10 is the standardized version of format that TVs and content are required to support.

The pursuit of High Dynamic Range (HDR) is the dream of getting closer to the Human Visual System (HVS) in all that we experience as viewers.

What does HDR
bring?

HDR technology increases the dynamic range of display image quality by nearly 5 times and the gray scale by 4 times to 10-bits. The color is fuller, the image quality is more exquisite, and the image is more realistic.

Compared with SDR

Compared with SDR 1080P technology, HDR has a larger image resolution: UHD 4K; Wider color gamut: BT2020, the same picture can present more color information and more details

What can HDR do for you ?

Increased contrast and Luminance ranges
Expanded range between darkest and lightest parts of image allows for a greater level of contrast.
Subtle shading
Subtle shading makes the scene look more detailed and realistic.
Broadened color spectrum
Wider and finer color spectrum allows for smoother color gradation.
HDR High Dynamic Rang
Expanded range between darkest and lightest parts of image allows for a greater level of contrast.

A wider and finer color spectrum allows for smoother color gradation

Image comes closer to what the human eye can see, allowing the picture to pull the viewers into the scene

Subtle shading makes the scene look more detailed and realistic.

Realizing HDR
≥1000nits LED // ≤400nits LCD High brightness: LED display

HDR requires a display with high brightness. LED displays can easily achieve this, while standard LCD and other types of display can only reach 400nits.

HDR Solution with Novastar

Nova image booster

Image booster function from Novastar

LED Image Booster is an innovative new technology invented by NovaStar to dramatically improve the performance of every pixel.

Receiving cards

Virtual Production LED screen displays require specific functions in terms of color management, grayscale, contrast etc. After multiple testing, we have hand selected 2 control systems for their reliability and performances in terms of control of the color and quality image.

We suggest working with Novastar Armor series or Tessera R2 from Brompton. Here we will focus mainly on the Novastar product as it’s more cost effective. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more info on Brompton control system.

Other features

AUTOMATIC MODULE CALIBRATION

When replacing a module with flash memory, the calibration coefficients stored in the flash memory can be automatically uploaded to the new module’s receiving card when first switched on.

Dual backup of calibration coefficients

The calibration coefficients are stored in the application area and factory area of the receiving card at the same time. Users usually use the calibration coefficients in the application area, but, if necessary, users can restore the calibration coefficients in the factory area to the application area.

Configuration file settings can be restored with one key press

The RCFG configuration file can be restored to factory settings with the press of a single key. With this feature, clients no longer need to make a phone call to request configuration files.

One-key firmware copy

Armor cards have the capability to automatically learn the firmware. This allows an Armor card to copy the firmware from any operational receiving card, an extremely convenient feature.

Dual-card backup

With its small form factor, Armor makes dual-card backup easy. The same space that would be occupied by a single card can be utilized by two Armor receiving cards to achieve dual-card backup. Even if one of the cards fails, the display will remain normal.

Smart Module

Monitor screen status without a monitoring card.

A microprocessor (MCU) is added on each module to receive information including module temperature and voltage, pixel error detection, and calibration coefficient.
