Brompton Technology powers NIPA KoVAC XR STAGE
- 18 January, 2024
Continues as preferred LED processing solution for the expansion
of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency KoVAC Studio.
UK/KOR: After the successful launch of an innovative LED stage last year, the National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) has once more enlisted the expertise of South Korean XR specialists,
ARK Ventures Inc., to elevate the NIPA KoVAC XR STAGE into a state-of-the-art hybrid facility.
This transformation introduces LED ceiling enhancements and effects side walls, all powered by
Brompton Technology LED processing. The upgrade enables the seamless, simultaneous execution
of XR and ICVFX, setting a new benchmark amongst government-affiliated studios.
Situated within the South Korean VR AR Complex (KoVAC) in Mapo-gu, Seoul, the studio now boasts a vast 16m by 6m ROE Visual BP2V2 LED wall, a 16.6m by 6.7m ROE Visual BM4V2 LED floor, two sets of 3.6m
by 3.6m LED ceilings, and a 2.4m by 3.6m side effects wall, the latter two composed of ROE Visual CB5L MKII panels. The setup is powered by four 4K Tessera SX40 LED processors and nine Tessera 10G data distribution units. Additionally, the system incorporates disguise vx 4+ media server and nDisplay
by Unreal Engine.
The NIPA team maximises the studio capabilities by leveraging long-standing Tessera software features such as Frame Remapping, ShutterSync® and Studio Mode, alongside the latest Extended Bit Depth, Stacking, and PureTone in their groundbreaking projects.
“I firmly believe that integrating globally recognised products into our expanded NIPA studio
will significantly advance South Korea's virtual production industry,” shares Lee Jin Seo,
Deputy Director of NIPA.
David Oh, Exclusive Director at Ark Ventures Inc., agrees: “The incorporation of cutting-edge technologies from industry leaders such as Brompton, ROE Visual, disguise, and ARRI, combined with the presence of NIPA’s highly skilled creative and technical teams, elevates the NIPA KOVAC XR STAGE to one of South Korea's most advanced integrated studio facilities, capable of realising any type of creative project by harnessing a meticulously planned blend of XR and ICVFX capabilities.”
“We’re thrilled to witness the growth trajectory the NIPA team has embarked on with their XR STAGE, upgrading the facility and transforming it into a high-tech hybrid space,” concludes Elijah Ebo, Director
of APAC Operations at Brompton. “With the studio now widely utilised across various sectors such as advertising, film production, and education, we extend our congratulations to the NIPA team for this significant development. We’re also delighted they had the opportunity to collaborate with the
Ark Ventures team again, who are renowned for their dedication to always delivering the best results.”
