The ROE Visual team is grateful to witness the global success of the Black Pearl series thanks to the trust and support from its customers and partners. As the virtual production space continues to grow, so does the demand for high-quality components. Receiving various industry awards, praises, and recognition, the BP2V2 proves to be the optimal solution in LED display technology around the world.
Technology Behind the Black Pearl Series
The Black Pearl series offers a user-friendly and innovative design, available in a pixel pitch of 2.8mm. The BP2V2 delivers a trusted performance with high-speed components and true-to-content color representation, adding a more streamlined camera setup and handling experience. With its excellent features in product design and performance, the series has been awarded various industry honors over the years, including Red Dot Awards, iF Gold Award, IDEA Gold Award, Parnelli Award, and Good Design Award to name a few.
Beyond the panels’ specs, the technology behind the BP2V2 has been instrumental in solving the limitations in virtual production. Pixomondo and ROE Visual recently demonstrated active viewing angle correction in virtual production with the panel’s viewing angle data. The system improves the color performance of LED volumes by tracking the camera's position and adjusting the color of the LED pixels accordingly. The innovation in color correction marks a new shift in virtual production technology.
“We are grateful for the trust and support of our clients, partners, and friends. This is a time for celebration and recognition as the team continues to lead with its values and mission in delivering optimal LED solutions for every application. We can’t wait to see new projects utilize the power of the Black Pearl series, exciting audiences everywhere,” states Grace Kuo, Sales Director at ROE Visual.
“Everyone at ROE Visual is elated to see how far the Black Pearl 2 series has come.
