Green Screen Technology

Keying technology has been used for years for special effects in movies and most commonly for weather forecasts. This technique simply allows the background to be removed by making the solid colour transparent and the background can then be replaced with alternative footage, graphics or a still image. Whilst you may be familiar with the term Blue Screen which is used in the movies with film cameras, Green screen technology is more efficient with the modern digital video cameras.

We use the Chromaflex system which uses a special fabric with glass particle to reflect back green light from an LED light ring mounted on a camera. This gives a clean solid green colour and means that it is not necessary have additional lighting to illuminate the background as you would with a painted green wall or green fabric curtain. As a result we have a mobile solution that is quick to setup and calibrate.

Please watch this short video showing an example of how it works.
