DMG Lumière by Rosco unveils colour evolution in LED lighting at NAB 2018
17 April 2018
GTC sponsor Rosco, a leading manufacturer of lighting solutions for the entertainment industry, recently announced the launch of MIX at NAB 2018. The colour LED lighting innovation is the result of Rosco’s recent acquisition of LED lighting specialist DMG Lumière, combining true Rosco colour inside a cutting-edge, portable and durable LED fixture.
Available in the SL1 and MINI fixture formats, MIX features three different functionality modes:
The white mode offers a wide range of tunable white light from daylight to tungsten, along with precise green/magenta correction
The colour mode enables users to adjust colour hue, saturation—with the ability to desaturate colors to either daylight or tungsten—and intensity, including a fine dimming curve
The gel mode allows users to select a Rosco gel from a vast gel library and even modify the gel’s hue, saturation, and green/magenta shift as needed
Also making its debut at NAB, the myMIX app allows users to mix, save, and share colours. Users can capture a colour within a mobile phone photo, save the colour and push it wirelessly to the MIX fixture. The app controls MIX fixtures wirelessly and contains all of the onboard control features, along with the ability to name and save colours within project folders, and share colours instantly with colleagues.
“With MIX technology we’ve combined Rosco’s 108 years of colour and lighting heritage with DMG Lumière’s LED expertise to introduce colour into our specialised range of LED lighting,” said Nils de Montgrand, Vice President of DMG Lumière by Rosco. “This customer-driven innovation will enable our customers to better bring their creative visions to life. We look forward to continuing to develop the advantages that our LED technology can bring to lighting film and television sets.”
MIX was designed by technicians to improve on-set workflow, with a simple user interface devoid of complicated menus, and with collaborative features within the myMIX app. A unique set of six LED chips enables users to achieve a wider range of colours. MIX can be controlled onboard or wirelessly through LAN, wired or wireless DMX, WiFi, and Bluetooth technology.
Mix builds on DMG Lumière’s expertise in LED lighting panels, which have been used to light award-winning films and TV shows including Game of Thrones, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and Jackie.
