The Matthews 8 x 8' Blue/Green Digital Screen is a must for anyone who shoots digital photography. This handy background can be quick-reversed depending on which color you need.

However, if you desire, Matthews also produces the same material in solid Green, solid Blue and solid White.

Digital fabric is a very bright, highly reflective surface that requires less light to illuminate. HD shooters will find this surface particular attractive to work with since they won't need as much wattage for their shoots.

Krakow, Poland's DigiCinema is covering their entire studio with Matthews Screen material.

          Comments about Matthews Blue/Green Digital Screen (8 x 8'):

          This is a very versatile product - I appreciate having both a blue and green side to chose from. The screen is surprisingly heavy, so if you're using a standard to lightweight background stand, be careful.

          I used the screen to take corporate portraits at my office. My setup included a hand painted gray background which was on the background stand (extended to maybe 9'). My husband took some metal pipe and attached grappling hooks with plastic ties so we could lift the blue/green screen on and off the stand. So far it works very well.

          Besides the weight, the shipping wrinkles do not come out with a steamer, an iron or from hanging. It's not a huge problem because realistically you're removing the background. But if you needed to leave the photo as is without editing, the wrinkles do show up.

          All in all - it's a really nice product, I would definitely purchase it again.

          The "lighter" green color is a PLUS...

            It came with edge grommets included which makes for an easy setup.
            The lighter shade of green is easy to light and no wrinkles show up
            when keying.
            I use FinalCutPro Studio and key directly from the program.
            I shoot with a JVC 790 in the .mov file format.

            Buy it! It works...

            Comments about Matthews Blue/Green Digital Screen (8 x 8'):

            I was looking for an upgrade from the cloth green screen provided with PhotoKey software. This is certainly much nicer! Has a thick, foam feel to it and is much brighter and more reflective. Choice of green or blue is a nice option to have. Still gets wrinkles where it's folded though so you'll have to steam it out. The biggest negative is the seam! It is not one solid sheet of material. About two thirds of the way down it is seamed together to get the 8'x 8' size. A real big negative if you have to use the whole screen. I'm photographing young kids using this screen so I can work around it, but with an adult in front of it, I have no idea how well that seam will key out of the picture. I probably would look for something else and not buy this again. Not worth returning though, it's still better than what I was using before.
