USA - Chroma key specialist, Reflecmedia ( http://www.reflecmedia.com ), introduced two new entry-level chroma key solutions at NAB 2008 - MicroLite and Deskshoot Lite. Part of Reflecmedia’s evolving array of chroma key innovations, MicroLite and Deskshoot Lite make the expensive art of chroma key affordable to just about anyone.
A lightweight, adjustable cradle, MicroLite allows a Reflecmedia LiteRing to be attached to any compact DV palmcorder without the need of special adaptors. An 8ft x 8ft piece of Reflecmedia’s revolutionary Chromatte fabric, Deskshoot Lite is ideal for users who don’t require a full-size background for chroma key production, including schools, churches, small businesses and amateur videographers.
Chromatte is an innovative fabric designed specifically for use as a background for chroma key production. Unlike conventional chroma key fabrics that are usually blue or green in color, 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 its source.
