Virtual real: exceptional picture quality in demanding production applications

Crystal LED VERONA is a compelling choice for virtual production. The extraordinary black levels, low reflection, high brightness, wide color gamut and high refresh rate of Crystal LED lets content creators realize lifelike digital backdrops, dramatically simplifying the creation of complex multi-element shots in-camera without the need for live actors to perform in front of green screens.

Industry-leading black levels with reduced reflections and glare

Achieving deep, realistic black levels is one of the most persistent challenges in virtual production workflow. Incident light from other sources falling on the LED wall can cause inadequate black levels in virtual backgrounds, requiring costly correction in post production. VERONA utilizes Sony’s newly developed Deep Black and Anti-Reflection Surface Technologies to achieve unmatched black levels – allowing incredibly natural, realistic mixing of real and virtual elements.

Creating Deep Black Technology

Development of the advanced surface technology for Crystal LED VERONA has demanded exhaustive evaluation of different candidate materials and techniques. A key challenge was achieving unprecedented black levels, extremely high brightness and a wide cinematic color gamut while minimizing reflections from the panel surface under the glare of powerful studio lighting. The successful result has been made possible by Sony’s extensive heritage and technical knowledge of display surface treatments and optical engineering, coupled with our close relationships with industry-leading material vendors.

High brightness and wide, cinematic color gamut

VERONA is ideally suited to the demands of virtual production, with an extremely high display brightness of 1,500 cd/m2 complemented by accurate reproduction of over 97% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

High refresh rate reduces scanline artifacts

If the refresh rate of an LED display is too low, it can cause flickering and distracting scanline artifacts that are particularly noticeable with today’s high frame rate cameras used for virtual production. VERONA employs high performance LED driver ICs (Integrated Circuits) capable of extremely high refresh rates up to 7,680 Hz – significantly greater than other commercially available LED wall solutions.

VERONA goes up to 7,680 Hz and without visible scan lines when shooting from a camera.

Installation flexibility

VERONA gives system integrators and rental specialists exceptional installation freedom. The modular LED panels are easy to install without needing special skills or costly jigs and other complex equipment.

Precise Z-axis adjustment

Easy Z-axis adjustment allows fine alignment of individual cabinets, ensuring that the LED wall surface is extremely flat to eliminate visible lines when shooting from an angle.

Reduced LED module damage

VERONA features protection measures to minimize the risks of costly accidental damage when individual cabinets are joined together during LED wall construction. In addition, each module features LED surface protection that safeguards LEDs from being dislodged or damaged.

Surface Protection

The surface is flat, therefore it is difficult to remove the LED.

Protection mechanisms

The edge protection plate automatically slides in when two cabinets are combined to avoid top and bottom from hitting together.

Pin and groove feature product image.
Groove for sliding contact

The pin slides on the groove and falls into the hole to prevent the sides of the cabinets from rubbing together.

Quick, easy routine maintenance

Costly downtime is a luxury that no virtual production facility can afford. VERONA is designed for easy maintenance, reducing pressure on technical crews with time-saving features for simple maintenance.

Each module’s power unit can be easily detached via a simple locking knob, with no special tools needed.

Energy efficient design

Electrical power consumption is a significant contributor to everyday running costs for any virtual production facility. VERONA combines energy-efficient, super-fine LED circuits with advanced Sony power control technology, reducing consumption by up to 38% compared to conventional LED walls. *As power per unit brightness.

Workflow friendly

Crystal LED is designed to fit smoothly and efficiently into today’s virtual production workflow. VERONA is available in versions that are fully compatible with leading LED wall display controller companies Brompton and Megapixel, simplifying integration into a wide range of virtual production environments while reducing training requirements. Furthermore, exceptional black levels and consistently accurate color reproduction during shooting means less additional work in post-production.
