Color in Virtual Production

Color in film production is an essential part of the creative workflow. The use of color palettes helps to enhance things like ambiance and emotion. This is vital to telling the story and must be executed accurately. The introduction of LED usage for In Camera Visual Effects (ICVFX) has created new technical challenges between the […]

SMPTE ST 2110 Virtual Production Cookbook

Live media production continues to embrace software-defined SMPTE ST 2110-based workflows built upon Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) based hardware systems that combine the Input/Output capabilities of Network Interface Controllers (NICs) with the media processing power of one or more Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). One such application is in-camera visual effects (ICVFX) in virtual production, the technique of […]

Production time is precious. With GhostFrame™ on Megapixel’s HELIOS® LED Processing Platform, you can accomplish more by leveraging the inherent technology of LED panels and the limits of the human eye. Capture multiple in-camera images simultaneously, display camera-hidden content, and control the in-person experience all from HELIOS. Our whitepaper explores the core concepts, use cases, […]

Camera Mode on HELIOS Technology Overview

Camera Mode is a toolset for Megapixel VR’s HELIOS® LED Processing Platform that gives users precise control of video sub-frames to optimize the camera capture window. In addition to positioning the capture window, these features have full control of the color and gain of each frame division. Note that GhostFrame is a superset of Camera […]

Calibration Metadata Whitepaper

Calibration technology for LED displays has existed for decades. With recent improvements in LED color gamuts along with the increased usage of HDR, there is now a greater end-user focus on color accuracy and calibration. Companies are marketing “new techniques” for calibration of LEDs, however today’s best-practice calibration methodologies have been in use for years […]

HELIOS Processing Technology Whitepaper

As direct-view LED pixel pitches get finer, a moderately sized display can quickly go beyond 4K resolution. While image resolution is important, other image quality differentiators such as dynamic range, contrast ratio, frame rate, bit depth, and color gamut are equally important to image quality. This whitepaper will demonstrate how the superior processing of HELIOS […]
