Manfrotto has introduced the background kit Chroma Key FX. This is a highly portable green or blue screen with frame and frame in the usable dimensions 3.9 m x 2.8 m and a background area of 11.2 m² - according to Manfrotto, the Chroma Key FX is the largest reusable all-in-one green screen background on the market.

The Chroma Key FX with its packing size of only 103 x 30 cm and a weight of 9.8 kg is very transportable and thus suitable for changing shooting locations. It consists of three solid but light frame segments made of aluminum, which are attached to each other by four hinge clips. Thus the frame stands without any further supports, because the outer frames can be opened like wings or leaned against a wall to use the full width.
An elastic cord runs through the frame, which enables quick assembly and prevents components from being lost when packing. Two tensioning struts ensure that the background is pulled taut and thus practically wrinkle-free, for precise greenscreen shots and less effort in post-production. According to Manfrotto, the entire background kit should be ready for assembly in just ten minutes.
