Ever had an awful time trying to get the spill from your green screen off your talent’s clothes and skin? Reflecmedia, a UK-based company specializing in chroma key technology, has developed a new system that could potentially eliminate these major setbacks during green screen shoots.


The two products are a Chromatte Screen and a LED (light emitting diodes) LiteRing. The Chromatte Screen is a dull gray fabric (much like a green screen) made up of tiny glass beads that act as reflectors. The LiteRing is a device made up of either blue or green LED lights that attaches to the front of the camera lens. The rings are available in three sizes and also have a series of adapters to maximize compatibility. When the light from the LiteRing hits the Chromatte fabric, it is returned on the same path back to the camera’s lens, making the camera see the grey fabric as an even blue or green background, eliminating color wash-over on your subjects.


An entire LiteRing and Chromatte screen set-up runs for about $2725. This includes a 7’x7’ portable backdrop, the LED LiteRing, the Reflecmedia controller and the camera lens adaptor ring. This is significantly more expensive than a traditional green screen set-up, but Reflecmedia is a new technology that may perhaps be capable of producing the perfect chroma key.
