Welcome to Chroma Key Tv
  Chroma Key; "The process of overlaying one video signal over another, the areas of overlay being defined by a specific range of colour, or chrominance, on the background signal" (Quantel Digital Factbook).
Ultimatte's AdvantEdge is one of the premier chromakeying plug ins, more information is collected below. You can also buy AdvantEdge online. If there is any additional information missing from these pages that you think is relevant, please feel free to send an email to info@chromakey.tv.
 
Animated Video Background
  An Animated Video Background is used frequently in chromakeying as backgrounds behind chroma keyed talent. An Animated Video Background is simply an animation played behind your chroma keyed talent. Animated Video Backgrounds are great for head shots and medium shots for interviews. There are a lot of Animated Video Background libraries available like Digital Juice, and virtual sets which take Animated Video Backgrounds like Virtualsetworks. Products like these can be great for polishing up an otherwise boring interview.
 
Animated Video Backgrounds in the field
  Using Animated Video Backgrounds for mobile chroma keying applications is a great solution. You can take a product like the Chromatte Chromaflex which is a very portable lightweight chroma keying solution which, unlike traditional chroma key techniques, requires very little lighting to use making it perfect for chroma keying on the go. One would simply take a Chromaflex with them to the interview and bring back the unkeyed footage and Chroma key an Animated Video Background behind the interviewed talent with whatever chromakeyer is being used in the studio like an Ultimatte or Serious Magic's Ultra Key.
 
Best Use Of Your Animated Video Background
  Having a large collection of Animated Video Backgrounds is necessary if you do lots of chroma keying of tight and medium shot interviews. Diversity of Animated Video Backgrounds helps assure that you will have a background to fit the topic, yet not overwhelm the talent and draw focus away from the subject. Animated Video Backgrounds should also loop seamlessly in order that viewers never see a jump in the image behind the talent.
