The Lastolite Panoramic Background is a collapsible 13-foot (4m) wide, 7.5-foot (2.3m) high background that folds down neatly into its own carry case.
Weighing only 19.8 pounds (9Kg), Lastolite said the background is ideal for image-makers on mobile locations. The background is completely self-supporting and can be set up in minutes. The structure comprises three individual aluminum framed sections, connected together with a hinge clip to allow the background to be set up flat to lean against a wall or with the side frames folded in to create a wraparound effect.
The Chroma Key Blue cover simply clips to the aluminum frame and creates a seamless surface. The background is ideal for live stream and post-production keying projects.
Its 13-foot width creates enough working area for multiple camera angles and subjects. Although the brushed fabric is non-reflective, the height and width combined is enough to place the subject(s) at a good working distance from the background eliminating risk of any color spill from the Chroma Key Blue surface.
Whether shooting a single person or a larger group, the Lastolite Panoramic Background allows the image-maker to introduce props and accommodate animated poses from the likes of dancers or athletes. The Chroma Key Blue now sits alongside the Chroma Key Green, Black, White, Granite and Limestone versions.
The price is $539.99.
