Volume configuration

The LED volume at ARRI Stage London consists of a main, ‘in-vision’ curve, two mobile side screens, a dynamic height-adjustable ceiling, and back curve. The wraparound configuration can be programmed to display 360-degree imagery that even when not in frame, casts dynamic, fully integrated lighting effects onto the performers and the scene being shot.

The main in-vision curve is 30 m wide x 5 m high (98.4 ft x 16.4 ft) and constructed from ROE Visual Ruby 2.3 LED panels.

Two moveable and tiltable side screens, each 3 m wide x 4.2 m high (9.84 ft x 13.8 ft), comprise ROE Visual Carbon CB5 LED panels.

The back curve measures 18 m wide x 4.2 m high (59.1 ft x 13.78 ft) and also uses ROE Visual Carbon CB5 LED panels. 

The dynamic ceiling is 9.6 m x 9.6 m (31.5 ft x 31.5 ft) and built from ROE Carbon CB3 LED panels. The four sections can work independently and tilt to an angle of 45 degrees. Precise positioning creates reflections wherever needed.

Studio Features

Integrated data networks and power distribution systems form the backbone of a cutting-edge studio infrastructure.

A bespoke automated rigging and suspension system can be controlled by a single operator, providing safe, millimeter-accurate positioning, reducing expensive downtime.

IP-based lighting control with integrated ARRI Orbiter and SkyPanel LED fixtures, mounted to motorized lighting truss for authentic skin tone and fine detail rendering.

Multiple tracking and processing systems integrated within the stage, allowing for instant transition between 2D and 3D workflows. Guest systems can also be connected into the stage’s workflow, giving productions flexible options, rather than a single prescribed set up. 

Located at ARRI’s UK premises in Uxbridge, West London, the LED volume is housed within a dedicated 708 square-meter (7,621 square-foot) studio space with a sound-dampened ceiling.

Stephen Keith-Roach, DP

“Once I understood the various technical roles on the stage, I found the collaborative working process hugely positive and very creative. I soon learned that I could control the lighting of the plates by literally moving the sun from dawn to dusk and choosing the time of day for each scene. That was a first for me, and I loved it. The scope for creativity is unlimited.”

“Shooting in a volume like ARRI Stage London is like nothing else; the talent and the creative team all feed off the immersive atmosphere, and it creates an amazing, collaborative environment for all. Knowing you can experiment in real time opens up possibilities that can’t be replicated in any other way.”


Connor Ling, Virtual Production Lead, Framestore

"ARRI is renowned as an industry leader in the cinematography and film space, just as Creative Technology is in live events, so we were extremely happy to hear about ARRI Stage London as a dedicated LED volume. Having a space where we can collaborate, test new workflows and bring projects is absolutely invaluable."

“Virtual production unlocks so much more than location. ARRI Stage London has been designed to be completely immersive, inspiring both the talent and the creative team to try ambitious shots or push perspectives that would have previously eaten into tight production schedules.”

“Completing seven different set ups in just eleven hours was a challenge, but the thoughtful design and engineering of ARRI Stage London enabled us to transition swiftly, thanks to the stage automation and playback systems.”
