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.
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.
