  • Chromakeying with LED ring light

    Do any Edius users have experience of chromakeying with the new LED light
    ring/high reflectivity background technique? We need to do some
    head-and-shoulder set-ups on location (mostly offices, etc.) and we
    don't have the time, budget or manpower to do them the traditional
    way. Is this technique really as quick and easy as claimed, and is the
    result good enough to pass muster for broadcast (SD)? (We wont be using
    a hardware keyer, since keying will be done later in Edius.)

    There seem to be two systems available - one from Datavideo and
    another from Reflecmedia. Apart from a twofold difference in price,
    they appear to be much the same.

    Andrew, I don't really have any experience in this, though I am interested. Here is a link to you tube using the Reflecmedia

        I think the ReflecMedia was about $2700 for the light and screen

          I have seen a number of demos, but the link you found is definitely the most impressive yet! I will report back if we go for it.

            I saw the reflecmedia version at NAB. It had the ring, background, and they were using some sort of box to adjust everything. I have no idea what the price for the entire setup was. It had issues, but did work.
            I ordered an 11x24 green screen for $165 and did a green screen project with Edius just recently. For the price, It works really well. Edius does this effect in RT
            in HD.

              There is a small box to control the intensity of the LEDs (which we would need) and a larger box which is a hardware keyer (which, as you say, we wouldn't need since Edius can do that). Without the hardware keyer it's about $2,700, with it's $5,700.

                Because it's 4:2:2, Edius will do a great job with the key.
