Chroma Key Background
  A Chroma Key Background is used frequently in chromakeying. A Chroma Key Background is simply an animation played behind your chromakeyed talent. Chroma Key Backgrounds are great for headshots and medium shots for interviews. There are a lot of Chroma Key Background libraries available like Digital Juice, and virtual sets which take Chroma Key Backgrounds like Virtual Set Works. Products like these can be great for polishing up an otherwise boring interview.
 
Chroma Key Backgrounds in the field
  Using a Chroma Key Background for mobile chromakeying applications is a great solution. You can take a product like the Chromatte Chromaflex which is a very portable lightweight chromakeying solution which, unlike traditional chromakey techniques, requires very little lighting to use making it perfect for chromakeying on the go. One would simply take a Chromaflex with them to the interview and bring back the unkeyed footage and Chromakey a Chroma Key Background behind the interviewed talent with whatever chromakeyer is being used in the studio like an Ultimatte or Serious Magic's Ultra Key.
