Rotolight Unveil Anova PRO 2

News Image
Rotolight has launched Anova PRO 2; a continuous light and High Speed Sync (HSS) flash for image-makers.

Delivering 10,700 lux at three feet, the LED light is full of features for television, film production and photography.

The Rotolight Anova PRO 2 offers 70% more power output than its predecessor, yet is energy efficient. With just 72W consumption, Anova PRO 2 reduces operating costs for TV studios, while providing unrivalled battery performance on location.

Anova PRO 2 delivers colour reproduction (CRI>96, TLCI 91) eliminating the need for expensive post production, whilst featuring electronically adjustable colour temperature in both flash and continuous modes (6300-3150K).

For television and film production, Anova PRO 2 includes a customizable suite of Rotolight's CineSFX (Fire, Lightning, TV, Gunshot, Paparazzi, etc.) which eliminate the need for expensive, time consuming legacy 'flicker-box' workflows. Designed in conjunction with Stefan Lange, Visual FX veteran, the patented CineSFX suite has been updated with 'enhanced realism' and the addition of a 'Chase' FX capability, to simulate the effect of motion on static sets. The newly integrated wireless Elinchrom Skyport receiver enables wireless control of CineSFX, colour temperature and brightness from up to 656ft(200m).

For professional photographers, Anova PRO 2 also features an updated High Speed Sync (HSS) flash capability (1/8000th), with a 250% power boost in flash mode. The unit can simultaneously be a continuous 'modelling light' and HSS flash, allowing the photographer to acquire focus in dimly lit situations and optimise composition. The circular shape also provides a naturally soft, flattering light output, with Rotolight's signature catchlight effect.

Rotolight is the lighting provider for Celebro, London's first fully 4K television studio, regularly used by global broadcasters such as the BBC, MTV, and the Discovery Channel. Wesley Dodd, CEO, Celebro Media, said: "The Rotolight Anova PRO 2 is the perfect light for working in the live television environment. We are able to light people accurately, very quickly, saving us time, mistakes on air and a lot of money. We are very excited to have placed an order for 200 of the Anova Pro 2 lights for our new studios opening this year in Washington, Moscow and Los Angeles."

Due to its output, yet lightweight nature, Anova PRO 2 is also ideal on location, and has become the light of choice for Italian state broadcaster RAI TV, who recently acquired 150 Anova PRO Kits for their ENG production teams.

"Rotolight is a totally unique product," said Andrew Lebentz, Head of Production for Celebro Media. "It works equally well in the studio and the field. As we develop the Live OB side of our business, the Anova PRO 2 was an obvious addition to our equipment list. Having a lighting fixture with such a substantial increase in power output means we will be able to cope with the most demanding of locations or weather conditions, whilst its battery efficiency simplifies our setup. The addition of an RJ45 DMX connection allows us to install them in our studio, at a fraction of a cost with the same professional results."

Anova PRO 2 is available from £1,249.99/ $1,625/€,1399 and ships as standard with integrated DMX, V-lock battery plate, wireless Elinchrom receiver and four-piece filter kit as standard. A range of additional accessories and modifiers are available separately. The Anova PRO 2 will ship from December 2017.
