Fotodiox Background Kits Announced – Chroma Keying and Diffusion Made Easy

These new Fotodiox Background Kits are an affordable way to chroma key your talent. They help hide that messy room behind you, or diffuse harsh lighting for a studio quality look in a flash. The company offers multiple sizes and fabrics to choose from.

Designed with a rigid metal frame that quickly slides together, the Fotodiox Complete Portable Background Kit creates a sturdy structure. This makes it easier to stretch out the backgrounds to eliminate wrinkles that wreak havoc in post for keying.

Easy setup and breakdown

This fast and simple system is assembled by snapping the metal tubes together to make the frame. After that, just secure the fabric to the frame with velcro strips.

Setup times are dramatically faster than conventional professional solutions but with a quality to match. It really doesn’t get any easier than that, and it even comes with a storage bag.

The rig is built up from a solid frame rather than relying on a collapsible, pop-up scheme and this allows the Fotodiox Complete Portable Background Kit to freely stand on its own through the use of integrated feet. Other pop-up systems require additional stands to hold the backgrounds in place. That means there is more equipment to drag around and a larger space is needed to film.

These Fotodiox frames can also be mounted to c-stands to modify lights for more stylistic interviews and shots.
