Pro Cyc at NAB 2022 with DisruptAR, Panasonic and Mo-Sys

Interview with Sean von Tagen, President, Pro Cyc at NAB 2022. Pro Cyc showcased their modular cycloramas and professional green screen backgrounds for photography, video and virtual production studios.

The affordable virtual production system incorporated multiple sizes of Pro Cyc chromakey cyclorama walls, LED lighting, live virtual sets powered by DisruptAR’s Unreal Engine plugin. DisruptAR combined a Panasonic PTZ AW-UE150 camera and ENG camera on a jib encoded with Mo-Sys Star Tracker.

The music video for “Hall of Egress” by the von Tagen Brothers was shot entirely on a Pro Cyc chromakey in a garage using Unreal Engine. Two Pro Cyc portable chromakey screens, a PC-160 and a PC-80 were joined together to create a 14’ x 8’ two-wall green screen cyclorama. DisruptAR created the virtual set and handled all aspects of the video shoot. Equipment used included PTZ cameras by Panasonic and compositing with a Blackmagic Ultimatte 12 Keyer. Lighting was provided by Kinoflow.

The line of “PC” portable green screens can be scaled up in increments of 80 inches in width. The PC80 is 80 inches (6 ft. 8 in.) wide, portable 160-inch cyc screen is 13 ft. 4 in. wide while the PC240 is nearly 20 ft. wide. The new portable green screen series enables users to construct a professional quality green screen with a full wall-to-floor sweep on location or in the studio within minutes.

Each green screen is adjustable in height from 6 ft. up to over 10 ft. Utilizing our revolutionary Pro Matte™ IV Virtual Green™ flooring, we have achieved a seamless wall to floor cove transition that has heretofore been virtually impossible to accomplish without building a hard cyc. Pro Matte™ IV is extremely durable, has very low reflectance and is easily cleaned with standard household cleaners like Fantastik®, 409® or regular soap and water.
