3 Reasons Why Rosco TV White Is The Best Paint For Cycloramas

If you have ever wondered what is the best white paint for a CYC wall? Filmtools – a global supplier of production supplies located in Burbank, CA – just answered that question. They recently needed to change their in-house cyclorama from green screen back to basic white and shared a video about the process on their popular Instagram channel. Knowing that just any white paint would not do, they chose Rosco TV White – a “white” paint that was specifically developed for use inside photography, video, and broadcast production studios.

If you have ever wondered what paint to use for cycloramas? Here are three reasons why Rosco TV White is the best option for painting cyclorama walls white (and floors too!):

1. The Best White Paint For Camera Sensors

Under typical studio lighting conditions, regular white paint could over-expose and blow out the shot. Rosco TV White paint is formulated to have 60% reflectance, which is the maximum brightness for use in video white balancing.

NOTE: Don’t be alarmed if the TV White looks a little grey. Camera sensors read the color white differently than the human eye does. Be assured that it will look great on screen.

2. A Super-Matte Finish For Even Lighting

Designed to dry with a very matte finish, Rosco TV White prevents unintended reflections while shooting. This helps ensure consistent lighting across the painted surface without unwanted shiny highlights.

3. Easy-To-Apply Paint For Cyclorama Walls

Rosco TV White Paint is manufactured using high-quality pigments and binders, which means fewer coats of paint are needed to cover your cyclorama or wall – saving you time and money on your studio painting project.
