Rotolight Announces Collaboration With Elinchrom

News Image
Rotolight has announced a collaboration with Elinchrom, the photographic lighting systems manufacturer.

The partnership will see Elinchrom's Skyport Protocol integrated across Rotolight's product range, commencing with NEO 2.

Rotolight has collaborated with Elinchrom to integrate its Skyport 2.4Ghz high speed sync (HSS) wireless flash receiver into NEO 2, eliminating the need to purchase a standalone flash receiver, while also providing range, flexibility and control for multiple off camera lighting setups. Skyport enables users to wirelessly control up to 10 lights, in four groups, at a distance of up to 200m with the new Rotolight HSS transmitter (capable of 1/8000th), which has been optimised for Rotolight by Elinchrom. It is available on launch for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic camera systems, with Fuji to follow in 2018, and is compatible with all other Elinchrom Skyport devices.

The Skyport integration provides filmmakers with wireless remote control of colour temperature, brightness, and remote triggering of Rotolight's CineSFX.

Rod Aaron Gammons, Managing Director, Rotolight, said: "Elinchrom Skyport represents the best in class wireless HSS triggering technology, and its combination with Rotolight's pioneering LED product range, will provide creative imagemakers with a unique innovative feature set, and unrivalled consistency and reliability."

"Rotolight is a highly innovative company, with a unique set of industry first products, and we were very excited to work with them when they approached us to integrate the Skyport technology into their product range. The integration is great for both companies, and for Rotolight's customers, they gain a rock solid, ultra-reliable, state-of-the-art, High Speed Sync wireless triggering technology," added Simon Whittle, CEO of Elinchrom. "Our ambition is for Skyport to become an industry standard technology, eliminating the need for expensive, proprietary trigger systems that prevents photographers from working with their lights of choice."
