wall tile - backerboard alternative?

I have heard about a new product that is an alternative to backerboard on walls. It is a thin membrane. Because of the way our shower base was installed we must consider this product. I don't know the brand name and I haven't been able to find it online.

Does anyone know anything about this product? Or did I just dream it?

Thank you.

Is it the Schluter Ditra system you are thinking of?


This is a good reference site for tile work.

That's it!

Have you used it and what do you think of it?
