Light-absorbent background for video

I want to use some black material as a backdrop for Skype and vlogs. What kind of black material is the most light-absorbent and least reflective? Thanks, Andrew

If you have connections and money you can also paint the ultimate black backdrop using Nano Black :slight_smile:

Or Vantablack

Thats the same product :slight_smile:

Velvet, or rather it’s cheaper equivalent, velour.

You could go green screen and then put in whatever background you want. You may find a black background too stark.
