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. 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 TAMPA
Our virtual LED video studio also features a curved wall design and stands at 30 ft x 15 ft. Camlock power connectivity is on-site for your Tampa virtual production, and we offer a variety of lighting and equipment packages if needed.
Our studio also features a full-size loading dock, allowing sets and props of all sizes to be brought in – even cars and other vehicles! Litewave Media is excited to be one of the first virtual LED video studios to offer this cutting-edge technology in Florida.

VIRTUAL PRODUCTION IN TAMPA, FL
Our virtual LED video studio can create virtual production content using Unreal Engine. This is video game software designed for creating photo-realistic virtual worlds. Litewave Media’s LED video wall uses RenderStream and disguise rx server-grade processors which connect our physical studio to any virtual sets in our collection. RenderStream integrates the disguise 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.
The program effectively tracks the camera, subtly changing the background as it moves to create a more realistic 3D effect than a traditional static backdrop. Our LED wall supports 4K 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 instance. These backgrounds are fully customizable and scalable. Our virtual production team can manipulate individual elements to perfect your shot. For example, imagine resizing clouds or 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!
