What is BaseMatte?
  Ideal for virtual sets, BaseMatte is a chromakeying solution from Reflecmedia. It works by placing a ring of LEDs called a litering around the camera lens. The LEDs shine blue or green light onto the BaseMatte. The BaseMatte is made up of millions of microscopic glass beads which are hemispherically coated in aluminum. This makes the BaseMatte covered in literally millions of tiny dish shaped mirrors. The net optical result is that any light shined onto the BaseMatte is only reflected back at it's source.

Mattenee is Reflecmedia's new chromakeyer specifically designed for use with BaseMatte, designed in conjunction with Pixel Farms, Mattenee plugs into industry standard applications.
 
BaseMatte advantages
  Because of the unique way that the BaseMatte reflects light only back at it's source it can do a number of things that traditional chroma key techniques cannot. BaseMatte can work in almost no light, because the color is generated by the LEDs and the BaseMatte only sends like back to the camera so you can light your talent for the virtual set they are in. This also makes it so the BaseMatte has no spill since there are no bright lights reflecting the very color you are trying to key off the background and onto the talent's hair and shoulders.
 
BaseMatte vs Conventional Chromakey Backdrops
 

Conventional blue or green screen fabric absorbs light and requires large amounts of studio lighting to produce enough output to perform a key against. The care and attention needed to lay conventional fabrics require skill and experience.

In a controlled studio environment we performed a series of tests comparing BaseMatte to conventional chromakey fabric. Using two identical camera setups at a distance of 5 m from the background and that a fixed aperture, we split the feed to a waveform monitor and vectorscope. The images below show BaseMatte that on the left compared with conventional chromakey fabric on the right.

Luminance

The left side of the image shows that crown that has a more even luminance level than the conventional chromakey fabric on the right.
Where the conventional fabric shows a greater light falloff with an uneven and diffuse line from that demonstrates a consistent luminance level with limited falloff in minimal shading.
 

Color Phase Angle

Using a vectorscope we measured the phase angle of the blue signal.

The LiteRings blue LEDs show a phase angle of 206°.This illustrates the purity of the color generated by BaseMatte and the LiteRing, and more importantly it has very little other residual color in the signal.
 

Chrominance

The level of chrominance in BaseMatte is significantly better than the conventional chromakey fabric. This greater range of chrominance enables your keying device to select a wider bandwidth of blue or green.
