Disney will be equipping more of its film studios with LG OLED displays

21 Oct 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

After having deployed 88-inch 8K OLEDs at Marvel Studios, Disney has partnered with LG Display to equip more of its film studios with OLED displays. Expect to see "some very cool projects".

OLED displays in film studios

Film editing studios typically use extremely expensive studio reference monitors. Increasingly, film studios are also using consumer-grade OLED TVs as part of their work to ensure that content looks right in viewers' homes. Marvel Studios already use OLED technology during the creative process, having "deployed LG’s 88-inch 8K OLEDs at locations for use in episodic visual effects review and color finishing". Now, The Walt Disney Studios, through its StudioLAB tech hub, and LG Display, the display manufacturer (not the LG Electronics consumer division), have entered into a three-year partnership. - "Through this partnership, LG Display will provide StudioLAB access to the latest advancements in OLED technology. Together, they will work on a variety of projects to equip Walt Disney Studios filmmakers with new production tools and provide consumers with fun, interactive and immersive experiences tied to the Studios’ film releases," announced LG Display. The Walt Disney Studios umbrella covers film and animations studios including Disney and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, Blue Sky Studios, and 20th Century Studios.

"Whether we are evaluating contrast and color accuracy or testing extreme viewing angles, OLED displays have demonstrated why their exceptional picture quality is in a league of its own, and we look forward to seeing how OLED technology advances for years to come."

"Some very cool projects"

Besides using OLED displays as part of the visual effects and color finishing processes, Disney said that it is working on "some very cool projects" that viewers will get to see in the near future. - "It’s exciting to be exploring the future with LG Display’s impressive engineers and amazing technology. We are already working on some very cool projects that we plan to deploy in the near future and I can’t wait to see the joy that these new experiences will bring," said Matthew Deuel, Director of Innovation Partnerships for the StudioLAB. It is unclear what those projects entail but with Disney recently having reorganized the company to focus primarily on streaming services, we suspect that it has something to do with Disney+.
