South Korea - RealProtec is a technology company that offers innovative solutions for South Korea’s film and media industries. Its strong focus on virtual production enables production teams to streamline processes and bring their clients' creative visions to life in a fast, efficient, and cost-effective manner.
Supported by a highly skilled team and leveraging cutting-edge LED technologies from Brompton Technology and INFiLED, RealProtec collaborated with CJ OliveNetworks and Jinwoo M&C to create Gwangju Content Cube (GCC) VX Studio, the country’s largest VP studio operated by a Korean government organisation, the Gwangju Information & Content Agency.
GCC was created as a multifaceted space equipped with content production infrastructure for movies, games, and animations, alongside immersive content experience facilities like VR, AR, and MR. Its setup is expected to act as a breeding ground for cultural content-related start-ups and drive the job market in Gwangju. “This is particularly significant as Gwangju boasts the only cultural industry investment promotion zone in Korea, closely connected to the National Asian Culture Centre and the Gwangju CGI Centre,” says COO of RealProtec, Sungbaek Choi.
Part of GCC, the new VX Studio covers 1,466sqm of the overall facility and features an AV system from Sony and a disguise vx4 media server and rxII render system, while the camera tracking system in operation is by STYPE.
The main LED wall comprises INFiLED DB2.6 S8C LED panels, measuring an impressive 30m wide by 6m tall. INFiLED DF3.9mk-C8 LED panels are used to create a 15m by 10m floor, while the ceiling is constructed with INFiLED AR3.91 S8C panels, measuring 10m by 5m.
The entire LED setup is powered by 27 Brompton Technology 4K Tessera SX40 LED processors, along with a whopping 106 Tessera XD 10G data distribution units, which work seamlessly with the Tessera SX40 to provide a single-box solution for data distribution with full data cable redundancy and effectively handle the challenges posed by this large LED display system.
“The SX40 processor’s real-time control response speed coupled with the Tessera software features, enable us to handle even the most complex shooting environments,” Choi explains. He further adds that the GCC VX Studio’s LED display and control system are both operating at ultra-low latency with 12-bit input and a 120Hz camera frame rate, and that data cable backup is a crucial aspect for them.
