Reflecmedia Chromatte is a flexible chroma key solution that allows you to shoot and key almost anywhere. The results achieved using ChromaFlex are as good as those achieved in a dedicated studio environment - on location, as everything needed comes in one small bag.
This kit includes the blue medium size LED LiteRing (fits lenses 105-112mm in diameter), 12 x 10' Chromatte glass beaded fabric background which achieves a high quality key, with no blue spill and excellent edge definition.
The LiteRing is a circular arrangement of bright blue light emitting diodes (LEDs) mounted around the camera lens.
The LiteRing provides all the necessary source light required to illuminate the Chromatte fabric for keying. Manufactured in two sizes, it is compatible with most digital video and professional camera lenses. The AC powered LiteRing Controller (LRC) allows adjustment of the intensity of light required for optimum keying results. Ideal shooting distances depend on a number of variables including levels of ambient light, choice of keying applications, camera quality and filming formats. As a rule the subject should be further than 8 ft from the camera to avoid a blue cast of light. Maximum distance is approximately 60 ft.
The surface area of the screen allows sufficient space to shoot from close-up through to a wide shot of good proportion. The light-weight, flexible fabric contains millions of glass beads that behave like cat's eyes - it is dark grey to the eye in ambient light, but when used with a camera mounted LED LiteRing the grey is seen by the camera as a brilliant but more importantly even blue background for easy chroma keying. The nature of the interaction between light and the glass beads means that seams, folds and creases are no problem.
