When do I use studio horizons in the color white?
White studio horizons are among the classics in almost all film, television and photo studios.
Those at backdrops can be evenly illuminated with on-light as wash lights or light ramps. These light sources are located on the studio ceiling and on the lower edge of the screen. This allows even color gradients to be "projected" onto the studio background. These lie for the viewer like evenly painted shades of color.
In order for these gradients to be free of shadows and other irregularities, the studio horizon must be stretched. For this purpose, a circumferential studio rail system will be installed. The Tüchler is particularly suitable for this purpose XT3 Tracks for smaller ones, the Tücher TT2 tracksfor medium to large and the Tüchle TT1 tracksfor very large film and television studios.
On the vertical edges of the studio horizon, sliding ladders are mounted in the rail system. These ladders give an even pull into the textile. To ensure that this is maintained, the ladder systems are locked in the rail system as well as in the studio floor. At the lower edge of the horizon there are various possibilities to attach clamping devices as well. Which of these clamping devices is used depends very much on the preferences of the studio operators.

By combining the above possibilities, the white studio horizons become completely wrinkle-free. The use of wide weaves up to 12m also keeps backgrounds completely seamless, resulting in an ideal, uniform smooth and featureless surface for the use of colored light.
What do I use black studio horizons for?
black backgrounds in film and television, along with the white studio horizons, are the classics. If white backgrounds are used to reproduce light as brilliantly and evenly as possible, black backgrounds should absorb lies to the maximum extent technically possible. Targeted light control - i.e. the reduction of light output that is radiated onto the black horizon - results in a black hole from an optical point of view. This absolute blackness, without any reflections, gives the illusion of an infinite depth of space.
The materials used are nettle, fabric and molton. However, the absolute reference class for black backgrounds in film and television studios is a horizon of Stage velour lightSORBER DD25.
