VIRTUAL LED VIDEO STUDIO, TAMPA | Rentals and Full Production Available
Litewave Media has joined the future of filmmaking with the addition of a virtual LED video studio that brings together production and post-production. LED volume sound stages are revolutionizing film production by reducing the need for green screens, traditional sound stages, and on-location filming.
Our virtual production studio can generate a computer-based background in real time. Instead of adding backgrounds in post-production with green screen, the LED video wall simplifies the process and allows the talent to act with the background already in place. This also vastly improves the realism of lighting. Difficulties that have plagued green screen such as a green cast on the talent or the lighting not matching the background are things of the past.
WHY CHOOSE VIRTUAL LED VIDEO PRODUCTION?
The virtual video studio gives your production complete control. Working in our conveniently located, soundproof studio can simplify and enhance your production. Issues associated with on-location shooting (weather, noise, etc.), are minimized in our controlled Tampa LED studio environment.
TRAVEL TO FAR-OFF DESTINATIONS… IN AN INSTANT
What if you never had to chase after magic hour? Our LED sound stage can project a sunset background for however long you need. This technology was notably used on the Star Wars television show The Mandalorian, creating alien landscapes in the comfortable environment of a sound stage. But it can be utilized for many types of projects including corporate videos, TV commercials, and more.

VIRTUAL PRODUCTION IN TAMPA, FL
Our virtual LED video studio can use existing creative or create custom virtual production content using Unreal Engine. This software is designed for creating photo-realistic virtual worlds. Litewave Media’s LED video wall uses state-of-the-art NovaStar MX40 controllers/processors which process terabytes of data in real-time – and then transform our physical studio into any virtual worlds you can imagine. Litewave Media’s LED studio integrates the software, hardware, content creation engines, and the camera tracking together – all seamlessly. Check out some more images of the virtual LED wall in action below.
Using Unreal Engine with camera tracking technology allows subtle changes to the LED background as it moves to create a more realistic 3D effect than a traditional static backdrop. Our LED wall supports 8K Ultra HD content including: plate shots (think car scenes) or real on-location content, Unreal Engine-generated content, or abstract videos – as used in music videos, for example. These backgrounds are fully customizable and scalable. Our virtual production team can manipulate individual elements to perfect your shot. Imagine adjusting the color of a sunset, or resizing mountains to fit into your scene, exactly how you visualized it… In real time!
We recently shot a car scene on our LED video wall using plate shots filmed in Tampa Bay, FL. Check out the video below to see some St. Petersburg, FL virtual production in action!
