About Chromatte:

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, in ambient light Chromatte is grey to the eye. The fabric contains millions of tiny glass beads that act as reflectors: when any light – such as the directional light from Reflecmedia’s lens-mounted LiteRing – hits the fabric, it is returned on the same path back into the camera’s lens. This retro-reflectice process means the camera ’sees’ the apparently grey fabric as a perfectly even blue or green background.

  • Lighting
    The only light required to light Chromatte comes from the LiteRing.
  • Ease of use
    Quick, simple, effective and consistent.
  • Portability
    Reflecmedia’s ChromaFlex takes the chroma key shoot out of the studio.
  • Adaptability
    Chromatte drapes and panels can be custom manufactured o fit virtually any environment.
  • Flexibility
    Reflecmedia’s LiteRing colour determines whether the production is shot against blue screen or green screen. If circumstances change and the alternative colour is required, the LiteRing can simply be exchanged without any need for repainting or relighting.
  • Space
    Chromatte can be installed into the largest of studios or the smallest office – there is no ’spill’ in a Chromatte installation.
  • Time
    Unlike conventional chroma key installations, installing Chromatte takes very little time, freeing up production time to concentrate on other elements like scene composition.

Chromatte Drapes

Chromatte is available 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 track or rail.

Chromatte is very versatile. Due to the number of tiny glass beads in the fabric, the camera and LiteRing can move freely and work at acute angles – even when screwed into a ball, you can still key against Chromatte!
