Rotolight Announces Firmware Update

News Image
Rotolight has announced a firmware update available for all users of its award-winning AEOS 2 and NEO 3 RGBWW LED lights, offering a range of advancements to the popular lighting products.

This firmware upgrade adds a number of powerful enhancements to the functionality of the ground-breaking new lights whilst also implementing some popular user-requested features, as well as general performance improvements.

These updates continue to add to the extensive feature set that has seen the Rotolight AEOS 2 and NEO 3 scoop numerous awards since the product commenced shipping in February 22’ and demonstrates Rotolight’s commitment to delivering continual improvements and innovations to its loyal user base.

The latest firmware update includes selectable fan control modes, including Silent Fan Mode designed for video users, and is fully user-controllable.

A new 'Lux mode' setting offers the ultimate control for both video & photo users to extract maximum performance from the light, or to achieve a constant exposure across colour temperatures depending on user preference. Maximum Lux Mode will appeal to photographers, who want to utilise the maximum power of the lights at all times, whereas Constant Lux Mode is designed for videographers and cinematographers who may wish to maintain a constant exposure (lux) regardless of the colour temperature selected.

Rotolight NEO 3 and AEOS 2 feature an industry-first touchscreen interface that provides enhanced control and saves time on set. By popular demand, a new Touchscreen Lock Mode has been added to enable the lights to be placed in any location (i.e. a fireplace), whilst preventing accidental adjustment to chosen settings. To activate, simply press and hold both knobs at the same time to lock/unlock the screen.

This update features extensive enhancements of CineSFX® modes, including improved navigation of SFX controls making user customisation of SFX even more intuitive, as well as enhanced colour realism, and refinements to triggering of SFX via the wireless Elinchrom Skyport transmitter.

In an industry-first feature, the Rotolight NEO 3/ AEOS 2 now includes Dynamic Multi-Language Support which offers real-time adjustment throughout all menus and displays, in native Italian, French, German, Spanish and Dutch.

These new firmware additions have been developed alongside a suite of general performance improvements and minor bug fixes, including improved battery performance in maximum flash power, and improved third-party battery support in 'max' flash mode.

Rod Aaron Gammons, CEO, Rotolight, said: "The latest firmware updates for the Rotolight AEOS 2 and NEO 3 really demonstrate our commitment to deliver ongoing support for our users. The latest products in our range have already been incredibly well-received by creatives across the globe and we intend to continue to push forward with developments, reacting to requests from our customers while future-proofing their creative solutions."

A major update (Firmware 2.0) is expected in late July providing support for Rotolight’s new native iOS & Android app which is in the final stages of beta testing and will launch simultaneously. The Rotolight app will provide wireless real-time control of brightness, colour temperature, HSI, gels, SFX, flash settings and more for the AEOS 2/NEO 3.
