LG Electronics is launching its new LG MAGNIT (LBAF) display for virtual production, leveraging the company’s Micro LED technology to deliver deep blacks and natural colours.

Ideal for film and media production, the new LG MAGNIT is capable of displaying digitally-rendered images in real-time, and synchronising with monitors, cameras, camera trackers and production computers to blend virtual and live-action elements together.

Designed specifically for virtual production studios and extended reality (XR) stages, the new LG MAGNIT boasts the company’s robust chip-on-board (COB) LED technology and a 1.5mm pixel pitch. Employing millions of self-lit pixels, LG Micro LED panels are known for their contrast, bright colours and accurate image reproduction.

LG MAGNIT can be customised to the required size of the displayed image and be installed either hanging or stacking. The structure of the LG Micro LED solution helps reduce colour distortion to keep images true across viewing angles, making it suitable for large-screen configurations. For a more immersive effect, LG MAGNIT allows for a concave curvature of up to 10 degrees.

For set-up and management, the new LG MAGNIT offers convenient installation and maintenance. The LG Micro LED display comes with large, 35.6-inch cabinets and has panel modules and power supply units that can be accessed from the rear. Offering broadcast quality performance, the company’s purpose-built display solution pairs colour accuracy with low latency video processing and HDR capabilities.

“A premium Micro LED display, LG MAGNIT for virtual production is an invaluable tool for broadcasting systems, movie studios, and XR stages, helping directors to see their creative vision come to life,” LG Electronics senior vice president of business solutions and head of information display, Paik Ki-mun said.

“Through collaboration with industry leaders, LG will continue to enhance its line-up of Micro LED solutions, offering large-scale displays customised to the unique requirements of diverse verticals.”

The new LG MAGNIT is currently rolling out in markets worldwide.
