An interview from the 2022 Cine Gear Atlanta Expo with Caroline Rault of Rosco. Rosco Laboratories is a leading global manufacturer of creative solutions including LED fixtures, backdrops, color filters, gobos, fog effects, scenic products and dance floors.
The Rosco MIXBOOK Digital Swatchbook is a practical, portable, and accurate device to pre-visualize gel and LED colors. It features the same six-chip LED technology found in DMG Lumiere MIX fixtures and can be wirelessly controlled through a Bluetooth-enabled iOS or Android mobile device with the myMIX app installed. Using the myMIX app, colors can be created by adjusting hue, saturation, or intensity levels, as well as by selecting xy values, which can then be sent to MIXBOOK Digital Swatchbook.
A built-in accessory thread allows for direct attachment to a 1/4"-20 mount. The MIXBOOK Digital Swatchbook's housing can also accommodate a spring hook, allowing it to be hung over a subject or scene. A pouch with a belt strap is included for storage and transport.
The patented MIX technology features a proprietary blend of six LEDs: Red + Lime + Green + Blue + Amber + White. This enables the SL1 MIX fixture to generate a wide gamut of colors and create accurate Rosco gel matches that have been authenticated by Rosco’s color experts.
Filmmakers no longer need to sacrifice F-stops for color-mixing technology. The SL1 MIX can produce bright bold colors, and a powerful volume of white light – all from its ultra-thin, lightweight and robust housing.
Set lighting technicians know that speed is of the essence when the cameras are rolling. There are no complicated menus on the SL1 MIX. Simply choose between three different modes: White Mode, Gel Mode and Color Mode, then choose the color temperature, hue or Rosco gel color desired and adjust as-needed. All of these features are available using the fixture’s on-board controls, or via the myMIX app from your mobile device.
he saying "Good things come in small packages" definitely applies to this DMG Lumiere DASH Pocket LED Kit. The compact 5 x 3 x 1" mini panel has a variable CCT range of 1700 to 10,000K to meet any type of ambient light challenge, match other fixtures, or just for creative expression. It has a high CRI/TLCI 95/90 rating too, which is your assurance of advanced accuracy in color rendering. And speaking of ratings, the light is also IP54-rated weatherproof, so you don't have to worry about climate conditions. The DASH also offers flicker-free dimming from 0-100%.
The DASH has outstanding color control, thanks to its six-chip color mixing of red, green, blue, lime, amber, and white (4000K) LEDs allowing you to tap a myriad of custom colors. It has an option for wireless Bluetooth control using the myMIX Mobile App available for iOS and Android. Other handy features include a 137 Rosco gel match library and special effects that include emergency vehicle, firelight, TV screen, and paparazzi. The DASH is powered by an integrated battery that provides a runtime of three hours at full power.
