LG Electronics has announced the launch of its new LG MAGNIT (model LBAF) display for virtual production. Using microLED technology, the new model delivers “premium picture quality with deep blacks and vibrant, natural colors, helping directors to create immersive visual experiences.” Ideal for film and media production, LG says the new MAGNIT is capable of displaying digitally-rendered images in real time; synchronizing with monitors, cameras, camera trackers and production computers so that virtual and live-action elements can be seamlessly blended together.

The use of LED displays to provide backdrops for shooting footage of actors, presenters and foreground objects is becoming more popular in the broadcasting and film industries. Designed specifically for virtual production studios and extended reality (XR) stages, the new LG MAGNIT, boasting LG’s robust chip-on-board (COB) LED technology and a 1.5-mm pixel pitch, delivers the supreme picture quality, features and convenience needed for professional content production.

LG MAGNIT for virtual production gives users the ability to customize the size of the displayed image and choose either hanging or stacking installation. The structure of LG’s microLED solution claims to help reduce color distortion to keep images true across a wide viewing angle, making the impressive display suitable for large-screen configurations. Additionally, LG MAGNIT allows for a concave curvature of content creators that prefer an immersive effect of up to 10 degrees.


LG’s microLED display comes with 35.6-inch cabinets and has panel modules and power supply units that can be accessed from the rear. Offering broadcast quality performance, LG’s purpose-built display solution pairs color accuracy with low latency video processing and excellent HDR capabilities.
