“Using Black Pearl BP2 creates an outstanding LED volume, with a perfect on-camera performance. Even in the exacting circumstances of black-and- white filming, we were able to get the most out of the LED.” – Fuse Technical Group on shooting the Academy Award-winning movie Mank “Pixomondo decided to go with ROE Visual because its BP2 panels are the only battle-tested LED panels; they deliver a flawless canvas that requires little attention once up and running.” – Mahmoud Rahnama, head of studio, Pixomondo, Toronto
