Model Details

Studio 16'x12' Chromatte Curtain w/ LiteRing


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.

By generating the background colour through a retro-reflective process Chromatte offers unrivalled benefits;


The only light required to light Chromatte comes from the LiteRing.

Ease of use
Quick, simple, effective and achieves consistent results.

Reflecmedia's ChromaFlex takes the Chroma key shoot out of the studio.

Chromatte drapes and panels can be custom manufactured to fit almost any environments.

Reflecmedia's LiteRing colour determines whether the production is shot against blue screen or green screen. Should circumstances change and the alternative colour be required, the LiteRing can simply be exchanged. No need to repaint or relight.

Chromatte can be installed into the largest of studios or the smallest office. There is no 'spill' in a Chromatte installation.

Unlike conventional Chroma key installations, a Chromatte installation takes very little time, therefore allowing extra time to concentrate on lighting and composing the scene.

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.

ReflecMedia LiteRing

Reflecmedia's Chromatte fabric is designed to work in conjunction with a LiteRing. The LiteRing features Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) arranged in a circular casing that is positioned in front of the camera lens. This provides all the light required to illuminate the Chromatte background for chroma key production.

The LiteRing connects to the camera with a specially designed adapter ring, similar to those used for matte box mounting, which is attached to the inner thread of the lens. The LiteRing is then placed on to the adapter and simply locked with a single screw. This enables users to quickly release the LiteRing in between shots, or change from a green to a blue ring based upon their chosen keying colour.

We have taken the blue or green colour away from the fabric and completely removed the need to separately light the background. The ability to change the background keying colour in seconds cannot be achieved any quicker - no need to hang a different drape or repaint the studio walls! Tungsten, HMI and Fluorescent lights can be large in size, expensive to power and uncomfortable to work under. Typically you require thousands of watts to light absorbent chroma key fabrics, whereas the LiteRing output of around 10 watts provides all the light required by Chromatte.

By relocating the colour and the light into one camera-mounted device, we have significantly reduced the set-up time and overcome many of the difficulties associated with conventional chroma key.

The LiteRing is available in both green and blue, and in three sizes to fit different size cameras. Each size of ring has a series of adapters to ensure maximum compatibility with camera lens sizes. Further custom adapters and fixing mechanisms are available.
