Baltimore County-based video production company Rock Shore has completed installation of its state-of-the-art XR LED studio in its expanded production space at the Caton Research Center in Arbutus.
The technology provides a “global environment” that dramatically improves production quality, reduces or entirely eliminates the travel time and expense required for offsite filming, and is designed to retain more projects in the Baltimore area. Last year, the company of eight video professionals leased an additional 6,000 square feet of space at its location at 3918 Vero Road to accommodate the new studio.
XR Studio technology is differentiated by its ability to reproduce realistic environments, which greatly benefits cinematographers, directors, talents, agencies and clients during the production process.
In January, Rock Shore spent a few days using their new technology to produce a preview of what customers can expect when using the LED wall. In three days, the team was able to film in Southeast Asia, a Californian forest, the landscape of Wyoming and various apartment and office buildings.
Rock Shore Media’s recent expansion includes two separate studios within its one-story Flex/R&D building. The first studio contains a 30ft long and 12ft high LED wall with a 142.5 degree curve. The second studio is equipped with a white cyclorama 45 feet long, 24 feet deep and 15.5 feet wide. Each studio is equipped with overhead rigging for lighting and substantial power for various production applications. It is now the only video production technology of its kind available in the Baltimore-Washington area.
