DropKey, the world’s first inflatable green screen studio called the “Pop-up Studio in a Bag” with the DropKey mobile app, is now available for preorder on Dropkey.com and will ship to customers this fall.
“85 percent of what you see on television is made using green-screen technology and nobody knows it,” said Rockwell Scharer, Founder and CEO of DropKey, Inc. “Almost 100 percent of professional content creators use Chroma key background replacement in their productions every day. When you put that ability on over two billion smart devices for the first time, you have the potential for a video and content creation revolution-and Dropkey is leading the way.”
The DropKey Pop-up Studio in a Bag Classic (available for $599) is equipped with a camera app that syncs location-based video clips directly from the MediaBook.tv online store, enabling users to find live, searchable video clips and start shooting in that location in seconds.
DropKey includes a wireless lighting controller with optional software audio mixer, making it the ultimate inflatable portable studio. In addition, the DropKey Pop-up Studio in a Bag Professional is much larger (12’W x 10’H) for $1,999 and includes professional audio and a 10-channel software mixer.
All DropKey Pop-up Studios pair automatically with the DropKey app on your smart device (iOS and Android) and will include the DropKey Ads Creator by monthly subscription giving users workflow templates for content creation and final assembly in the cloud, creating professional grade commercials at a fraction of the cost, removing the need for crews, rental gear, and post-production.
“We saw a very big niche in the new work-from-home economy where content producers can significantly increase their revenue streams on the mobile platform through collaboration and at-home productions,” added Scharer. “Users will be able to make broadcast-quality videos at home using professionally shot, curated green screen location-based “video backgrounds” via the DropKey and MediaBook ecosystem. With DropKey, the next Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams may emerge as we enter this new era of video creation.”
DropKey is also providing access to MediaBook.tv for location-based video clips creating a content creation “ecosystem” designed specifically for content creators, YouTubers, TikTok amateurs and professionals who want to “level up” and shoot broadcast quality, live background replacement streaming from their home or office.
MediaBook is an online store for video clips made up of millions of aggregated stock footage assets available for green screen backgrounds (b-roll), enabling users to quickly obtain “locations” and create broadcast-quality green screen videos from literally anywhere. DropKey’s Creator Network (DCN), a free membership that is 17,000 members strong made up of photographers and videographers, can get discounts, enter brand competitions and upload their own high-quality location-based background video clips to the MediaBook ecosystem and make money. The company will market DropKey as the Be Anywhere® app.
DropKey can be purchased at https://dropkey.com and b-roll video clips can be purchased at https://mediabook.tv. Video clips purchased will sync to your camera roll, a function that will be available when the company starts shipping products in fall 2021. MediaBook will include a mobile app in Q4 2021.
