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. The ZRD-VP23EB 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.
Development of the advanced surface technology for the ZRD-VP23EB 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.
