Plazamedia Lazanedia's new hybrid studio
Germany - A 132sq.m LED wall from Alfalite has been selected as the centrepiece for Plazamedia Lazanedia's new hybrid studio near Munich to broadcast all the FIFA World Cup matches from Qatar. The TV set will use camera tracking and multi-camera systems from Mo-Sys, also the Alfalite LED wall supplier for this installation.
Plazamedia is a live entertainment and sporting events producer and established provider of intelligent digital content solutions in Germany. They have chosen an Alfalite Modularpix Pro VP XR 1.9 ORIM 33m-wide and 3.5m-high curved U-shaped LED wall for their new hybrid studio at the AGROB Medienpark to broadcast the 64 FIFA games from Qatar, including 23 live matches. Deutsche Telekom will air all 64 2022 FIFA World Cup matches live on MagentaTV.
Mo-Sys and the Spanish company Alfalite installed the ORIM LED wall in record time. ORIM (Optical Resin Injection Module) technology is a new termination system for LED panels through an injection of optical resin that improves precision between modules (<0.5mm). It also provides a magnified 175º horizontal and vertical viewing angle.
The 350sq.m hybrid studio set will combine existing set architecture, and physical media feeds with a digitally generated virtual extension in a 360° world. Four cameras will interplay virtual and real elements in real-time from the giant Alfalite LED wall during the World Cup.
To ensure that all camera movements are being transferred to the virtual world, the position of the four studio cameras will be constantly tracked and the data transferred to the render engines using Mo-Sys Startracker camera tracking system and Mo-Sys broadcast Mixed Reality system (bMR).
Jesús Cabrera, CEO of Alfalite, said: "We are thrilled that a prestigious company as Plazamedia chose ORIM LED wall for their new and innovative XR LED Studio. "It's great to work with these technology partners and continue improving our technology with Mo-Sys."
