Film and Theatre Backdrops are the ideal solution if you are looking for a simple, quick and cost effective way to increase the background choices available to you and your customers.
Pyramid Visuals digitally printed backdrops are a simple and effective alternative to hand painted canvas or muslin backdrops.
Perfect for many situations. Digital backdrops can be used for studio photography, Theatre, film and TV, event photography, weddings, outdoor events and more.
Scenic backdrops have come a long way since Florentine artist and architect Filippo Brunelleschi discovered the principles of linear perspective in 1425. Using Brunelleschi's system, artists could scientifically measure and draw a scene with visual depth onto a backdrop, and by the end of the 16th century it was all the rage on the stage. Three hundred years later, a new technology has been developed that has further affected set design. Using digital images and enormous printers, a backdrop for the stage can now be downloaded, printed and delivered in a week or less. Although digital backdrops will never replace hand-painted drops, in certain situations they do offer advantages to a designer.
Digital backdrops provide certain advantages. If a backdrop is damaged, it can be quickly and easily replaced, which may be particularly useful for touring show drops that get a lot of wear and tear. The images can be saved on a database and used again, even 10 years down the road. The printed drops also can be hung and stored multiple times without affecting the quality of the image. Turnaround time for a digitally printed backdrop can be quick, depending on the size. Using inkjet printers, backdrops can be printed on a number of coated (and some non-coated) fabrics. The resolution is approximately 300 dpi, similar to standard office printers, which can yield sharp, crisp prints from high-resolution originals. Digital printing using airbrush technology can be done on a wide range of materials, including cotton and synthetic fabrics, muslins, canvas, RP screen, sharkstooth scrim and even Venetian blinds. Seamless images can be printed up to 40 feet wide; alternatively, panels can be printed and joined together with an “invisible” seam.
While digitally printed backdrops are durable it is possible to print on both sides making it even easier to operate during those times of pressure when you need things done, and fast. With high quality visuals, the graphics on the print are extremely convincing and perfect for any mood, set, atmosphere desired for your project. Whatever the image is printed on, may that be canvas or other synthetics for outdoor use, you would be guaranteed awe-inspiring visuals.
