    It’s the long overdue evolution of rear projection, and a far better alternative to green screen. It’s without a doubt the future for all the best reasons.

    This is such good technology. I shoot a lot of green screen and hate it. This is a better way.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Related question: I see the use of "TVs" on set during news shows etc... where the talent is interacting with the screen and the screen looks great. Anytime I have pointed a camera at a screen it looks like crap! So what are they doing or what type of screens are they using to get them to look good while being filmed? Thanks.

    I think it needs to have the same refresh/fps rate.

    As to sets, it'll be a combination of practicals, CG, LED walls, green screens, etc.

    Outside of the refresh rate, the screen looks "normal", as if you where watching it in person. Seems like when I film a screen it turns a weird shade of blue and under saturates etc...

    LED walls have available in eBay for years. They're mostly used for the outdoor signage, where pixelation is not visible due to the distance. Advertising boards at footy stadiums are an example of this. The advancements in technology made the individual LED sub-1mm in diameter, thereby allowing the walls to be used as replacement for projectors. They're still too expensive for movie theaters with costs in millions. But, for a feature film set or a major industry expo, wall rentals are well worth it.*
