I am looking to build a interactive science museum exhibit that demonstrates keying, by allowing visitors to be filmed infront of a screen and see themselves presenting the weather/ walking on the moon/ flying like superman.
I have only been investigating this for a morning, and therefore my product knowlege is small, but I am tending towards a Ultimatt box with a chromat system screen (to minimalise lighting problems). But any additional info to help decide will be much appreciated.
The background signal will come from a serially controlled DVD player.
The aim is to keep the kit list to a minimum (ie minimum lighting) and as it will be running all day 7 days a week possibly for years, it must be stable.
Any suggestions gratefully recieved.
Thank you.

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in Portland has an exhibit that does what you are looking for - perhaps they can assist?
