News Image
Witness the evolution of on-camera LED Lighting with the premiere of the ROTOLIGHT NEO at IBC2014 (Hall 11 Stand D69).

Featuring Bi-Colour LED lighting technology with best in class colour rendering, Neo will be the world’s first on-camera lighting system with accurate electronic Colour temperature display (CCT) to enable fast, tunable colour on location. Rotolight’s ‘Neo’ will also deliver a high output 900 lux at 3 feet (twice that of competing LED on camera lights) whilst providing a gorgeous soft light source, along with industry leading on-camera battery performance and Rotolight’s signature ‘Ring-light’ Effect.
Rotolight is a leading British manufacturer of multi award winning on-camera, studio and location LED lighting systems for photography, videography, broadcast and cinematography. Rotolight’s products have been used on major features including James Bond ‘Skyfall’, ‘Captain Phillips’ (Dir. Paul Greengrass, DoP. Barry Ackroyd BSC), and have won over 13 major industry awards across the globe.
The Rotolight Neo was developed at PineWood Studios UK, after years of extensive feedback from leading cinematographers and photographers around the world as to what they would most like to see in the next generation on camera light for professional television, film and photographic use.
From that feedback the Rotolight ‘Neo’ was born, and it delivers never before seen technology in a truly unique versatile, highly portable package, that is proudly designed and manufactured in the UK. Neo builds on Rotolights multi-award winning LED technology which is used by leading broadcasters, filmmakers and professional photographers the world over including BBC, NBC, CNN, Disney and ITV to name a few. Providing a highly versatile solution for run-and-gun news shooters, filmmakers or still photographers, it is easy to use and fast to set up, great on location or in a studio. NEO’s 120 LEDs offer full spectrum colour reproduction with an overall CRI=95 (Skin tone>98) and can be accurately dialed from 3150K to 6300K in ten degree Kelvin steps. Featuring an intuitive dual rotary encoder control system for rapid brightness and colour temperature adjustment in the field, and Rotolight’s 'Dynamic Drift Compensation' for smooth dimming from 0%-100% with no colour shift. Neo can be powered by 6 AA batteries for up to five hours (or three hours at 100% power), AC adapter or D-TAP cable, drawing only 9W at full power.
Available as a single or multi light kit, Neo will include a 10-piece Location Filter Pack including diffusion, skin tone and creative FX filters, starting at just £249 ex (£299 inc).
