Lighting for Webcast with Screens as Backdrop
on Jan 10, 2017 at 5:03:28 pm

Hi everyone.

I have a client I am setting up a webcast for and he wants to use 3 screens as the backdrop playing back a looped animation. Has anyone else done this before?

My concern is the lighting will have to be a different setup than with a cloth backdrop. Avoid reflections on the screens, and the screens themselves will seem to provide backlighting. Anyone have advice on how to light a set for a webcast that is using 3 screens to fully take up the background?

This is a waist up talking head framing, no standing. I sincerely appreciate any help anyone can provide.

Thanks,
Chris

I'm not an expert, but some things to consider are create separation from the background by moving your talent forward. Displays usually are 5.6K so use daylight lights on your talent. Have dimmable instruments on your talent so you can adjust the exposure vs the background.
