July 15, 2021 – BURBANK, CA – Monolith Studios, Inc (“Monolith”) is proud to announce that it is the first company in North America to offer the premier ROE Black Pearl 2 version 2 (BP2V2) for rental to film and television studios as well as commercial clients for use in virtual production, car processing, music videos, XR, and other high-end LED-based projects.
To date, the ROE Black Pearl 2 (“BP2”) has been the industry quality leader, having been used on gold-standard projects that utilize virtual production, such as Disney’s “The Mandalorian” and HBO’s “Westworld”. The updated BP2V2 sets the bar higher with faster components and truer-to-content color representation. The BP2V2 minimizes scanning artifacts by having a higher refresh rate in combination with a lower scan rate. The higher refresh rates help to avoid visible scan-lines; the BP2V2 has a much better refresh rate of 7680 Hz as compared to the BP2’s 1920 Hz.
Fred Waldman, Monolith’s Executive Vice-President of Business Development, said “Monolith Studios is excited to offer the ROE BP2V2 to directors, VFX supervisors, directors of photography, VFX/post-production companies, broadcast production companies, and agencies in the film, television, and commercial worlds. We know they will be excited that exacting true-to-content effects can be achieved with our LED product’s higher refresh rates, high frame rate, even more precise color processing, low scan lines, and greater contrast ratios than anything else available in the market today. Monolith looks forward to continued partnership with ROE Visual, the premier LED choice for virtual production stages. The pedigree of ROE’s team as well as products is a perfect fit for our production clientele.”
The Benefits of the ROE Black Pearl 2 Version 2:
Scanning Effect Minimization
BP2V2 minimizes the scanning artifacts by having a high refresh rate in combination with a low scan rate.
Fast and Easy Set-Up
The integrated magnet-assisted assembly, LED protection and smart lock system allow for automatic positioning and efficient installation. These features guarantee optimum panel protection during build and break. The narrow tolerances on the panels will result in a flawless LED canvas.
Due to its stacking, hanging and curved installation options, the BP2V2 LED panels offer flexible installation solutions. Through concave or convex curving, a larger field of view and a more immersive experience can be created.
Intelligent Module and Easy Maintenance
Each individual module stores its calibration and operating parameters. Equipped with identical push-out modules, maintenance is a breeze. In addition, a special edge design offers superior LED protection during transport, set-up, and tear-down.
True-to-content effects are created with high refresh rates, outstanding color processing, and great contrast ratio. With a bit-depth of 16-bit, color banding and inaccurate color representation are a problem of the past.
High Power Supply Efficiency
Built-in heat dissipation and a power supply efficiency of 90% guarantee minimal waste heat.
