Chromatte is a fabric designed specifically for use as a background for chroma key production. Unlike conventional chroma key fabrics that are usually blue or green in colour, Chromatte is grey to the eye in ambient light. The fabric contains millions of tiny glass beads that act as reflectors, returning any light shone on them back to it's source.
When the directional light from Reflecmedia's lens-mounted LiteRing hits the Chromatte fabric, it is returned on the same path and back into the camera lens - as such the camera sees the otherwise grey fabric as a perfectly even blue or green background. Due to the number of glass beads within the fabric, the cameraand LiteRing are free to move and can work at acute angles to the fabric. In theextreme you can screw the fabric into a ball and still key against it!
By generating the background colour through a retro-reflective process Chromatteoffers unrivalled benefits;
Conventional fabrics require significant lighting to create an even colour background, whereas the only light required to light Chromatte comes from the LiteRing. This also means that any spill from unwanted light is eradicated and that chroma key can now be used in low-lit scenes and sets.
By removing the need for additional lighting, Chromatte takes chroma key out of the studio and into any controlled lighting environment - an office, meeting room or garage can be a chroma key location in minutes.
For even an experienced lighting engineer it can take hours to light a chroma key set. In many instances, the time involved and the difficulties of achieving high quality results have prohibited the use of chroma key in lower budget and time-sensitive productions.
Chromatte is supplied in a range of standard size or custom produced studio drapes, where the fabric is backed with a black light-proof drape and hemmed with eyelets across the top for easy hanging from studio tracking or rail.
