Even if LED walls are banned throughout Europe European studios will still be able to shoot every other kind of scene. Not being able to shoot one specific type of scene in Europe is a minor issue.

Or do you think LED walls will replace all other forms of filming scenes?

I have been buying each season for both me and a friend.

It's his birthday today, but he will have to wait until Thursday to get his birthday present of season 4. I am treating him to pizza today as kind of a birthday gift appetizer until it arrives.

Personally, I can't say if the seasons are any good or not, but my friend and his wife really enjoy them.

there are several issues with your train of thought

1) the change now ads 8k sets to the mix but for 4k (and lower they were already restricted. the restrictions are now a bit tougher but all they really mean is TVs that got an F before (A-G is a pass) will now get a G and still pass. So not new restrictions but an update on old restrictions that have been in place for years

2) the law has a calculation based on screen size and power usage and an EEI max so a bigger display is allowed more power (why you see those tables everywhere)


3) A video wall can either uses more than one TV and so what each TV does is the only thing that matters, or projector(s) and the law does not apply to projectors.

Regarding point one, some high end 4K sets donít pass and they are the ones that tend to be the best quality.

Same will apply with LED walls, donít forget no Micro-LED will pass the new restrictions. Itís expected that future Micro-LEDs will be the preferred choice for huge LED walls due to their clarity and brightness.

Let's assume you are right (i.e. the TV in the background can't be there because it goes against EU laws), why can't the actors film in front a green wall in Europe and anything in the background be filmed here in Montreal where those TVs are allowed, and the electricity is clean and cheaper

the EU regulation is real. The interpretation that it means the end of 8k is not. A big fuss has happened here but can you show me one TV manufacturer that agrees that it means the death of 8k in Europe.

nothing installed will be affected. The law only affects stuff on the store shelves in March of next year.

the law only affects the SDR mode out of the box people will still be able (assuming a manufacturer gives them that option to turn up the brightness and use more electricity. People will still be able to have more than one TV in their home and if all those TVS are used separately or as a video wall that is up to them.

If they canít get past the regulations, itís effectively the death of 8K in Europe, or at least a suspension while a solution can be worked on.

In Europe TVs will just have to default to an energy efficient mode and display a warning message if users switch settings. Since default settings are always crap anyway the new regulations won't make anything worse.

Yes, good point. I agree.

Curiosity got the better of me so I've done a little bit of reading on this, and a number of websites mention Felixstowe and Southampton as ports which take in shipments directly from China (and presumably other nations too, but China is the country that's mentioned here). There are also other ports in England further north which also receive shipping but I think these tend to handle smaller cargo. Once they arrive, they'll then wait for UK customs to check them out before distribution.

Now that the UK has left the EU, I suspect that UK ports will now handle more traffic from the rest of the world.
