    LED Panel, together with video controller from renowned technology companies like Brompton Technology is an important and critical portion for making commercial-grade virtual production.AVHA however likes to also emphasize the significance of understanding all the indispensable steps during virtual production and the impact of such steps to each other.So, LED panel itself is not a must to join the contest.

    As school partners will need to prepare such equipment for student teams to join the contest, usually schools have PC with adequate computing/graphic power, capture card, a proper filming camera, green screen already. We would like to remind schools need to have some sort of camera tracking device to make virtual production feasible. We do recommend using such device from our sponsors like VIVE MARS and Vanishing Point. Game engines are normally used in such production process. AVHA does not recommend which game engine to use but usually Unreal and Unity are often named for such purpose.
