The LED-centered stage market isn’t just relegated to TV shows like “The Mandalorian,” “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and the new “Game of Thrones” spinoff, “House of the Dragon,” that all use virtual production to render fictional environments (without going on location or using green screen). LED stages can be used in much the same way for corporate extended reality (XR). Corporate product launches, press conferences, live events and even the meeting room market are preparing for the influx of XR Stage applications that create immersive virtual environments for viewers. A small corporate LED stage can seem much larger or virtually take viewers somewhere else in real-time with the right in-screen and on-screen XR content.
At InfoComm, Planar showed why it’s one of the leaders in the XR display market right now with a live demonstration of an XR Stage that is likely one of the coolest we’ve ever shot at a trade show:
As you watched the video, your eye was probably drawn to the LED stage, but the real magic is shown on the smaller LCD display above the video wall, which shows the output from the camera. Watch the video again, but this time, pay attention to how much more real the environment looks on that display. This sort of visual effect opens many possibilities for corporate LED stage use, beyond big-budget cinematic productions.
Planar didn’t just demonstrate its leadership in the XR market at InfoComm 2022. Additionally, the company showed a display designed for the modern workplace that has some meeting participants in the room and some working remotely. The Planar UC Complete has a 21:9 aspect ratio to show more remote participants on screen and suit Front Row for Microsoft Teams Rooms, too. Here’s the video we shot on the show floor of this application:
