Filming an LED screen requires the camera’s shutter speed to be precisely matched to the LED screen refresh to prevent ugly artefacts appearing.
Now with ShutterSync® you can tune your LED refresh to the camera, not the other way around, giving creative control back to the user.
ShutterSync® can optionally be used in conjunction with Frame Remapping, completely transforming the workflows of previously complicated multi-camera virtual production setups.
It can also be used with Extended Bit Depth, which offers 2 to 3 stops of additional dynamic range on camera and is invaluable when filming a LED screen displaying dark content.
ShutterSync® is exclusive to the Tessera SX40 and Tessera S8 LED processors.
ShutterSync® is an industry-first processing feature that makes it possible to adjust the timing of the LED refresh to match your preferred camera setup.
With this change the LED screen ceases to be an obstacle to work around, becoming a genuine partner in the creative process with many of the commonly experienced visual artefacts on camera a thing of the past.
Now the DOP retains creative flexibility for camera configuration, with wider choice of aperture, lens, sensor gain, filters, etc. to achieve the desired creative result and level of motion blur.
ShutterSync® is compatible with all LED panels fitted with a Tessera R2 receiver card, and works best with panels supporting HFR (High Frame Rates).
ShutterSync® doesn’t affect network pixel capacity and works with genlock for a perfectly synced system and a smoother final result.
