First LED Wall Vehicle Stage Opens In NYC

Long Island City, New York is the site of the first-purpose built Carstage LED vehicle process stage.

The permanent virtual environment facility is equipped with expansive movable LED walls and proprietary technology.

By specializing in LED screen vehicle work, Car Stage says its approach offers unique capabilities. With 20’ ceilings, the 10,000 square-foot stage is ready for vehicles (or combinations) from bicycles, sports cars and pickup trucks to a full-size bus, helicopter, train car or 50-foot yacht. The technology features 3.1 and 1.5mm pixel-pitch repositionable walls, D3 media servers, Tri-Level Sync and LTC Master Clock, and multiple other resources—all driven by a crew of experienced experts.

Clients have the option of coming in with their own background imagery or they can access the drivingplates.com library on the premises.

Carstage is a NY State Level 2 Qualified Production Facility (QPF) and participates in the NY Film Production Tax Credit Program. It is located between the Queensboro Bridge and the Midtown tunnel at the Greenpoint/L.I.C. border.
