Rotolight debuts WORLDS FIRST electronic SmartSoft
POSTED ON 30 MAY 2022
Rotolight has unveiled the worlds first electronic ‘SmartSoft™ Box’, for its award-winning AEOS 2 lights, along with a brand new native iOS & Android App.
Delivering a genuine revolution in lighting control, the Rotolight SmartSoft™ Box has been developed to save photographers and filmmakers both time and money, allowing users to electronically adjust diffusion, focus and spread without the need for gels or additional modifiers. Like a LEE 216 on an adjustable dial, SmartSoft™ provides 1.5 stops of electronically variable diffusion thanks to Rotolights patented technology, providing the flexibility of a soft output and a harder light source all in one.
“Rotolight has proven it is yet again at the cutting edge of patent-protected industry first technologies in the lighting industry, providing our customers with unique state of the art tools that enhance creative possibilities on set”
Rod Aaron Gammons, Rotolight CEO and Co-Founder
SmartSoft™ was first debuted in Rotolight’s award winning Titan Cinematic range, built natively into its Titan X2 and X1 fixtures which have been used on countless feature films and TV shows by Netflix, Amazon Studios and SKY including BAFTA longlisted “The Colour Room” and Greys Anatomy. For the first time this technology has now been adapted into a removable electronic softbox for its recently launched AEOS 2 fixtures, which weight just 1.4kg (3lbs), making them the worlds thinnest, lightest 1×1 style lights in the market.
“The new SmartSoft™ Box has revolutionized how I can control light. It simply allows me to create pictures with just one modifier that have never been possible before. It’s a gamechanger in how I control light for both my commercial photography and has saved me so much time. The ease of use is phenomenal”
Sam Nash, Commercial Photographer & Master of Light
The SmartSoft™ box mounts in just seconds to the AEOS 2, and is adjustable via the intuitive touchscreen display or, via the Rotolight App.
With the all-new native Rotolight iOS and Android app, you’re always in control. It has never been simpler to switch between lighting modes, remotely adjust colour, power, SFX and much more. The new app allows the user to create custom groups and projects on up to 20 lights simultaneously; right from the palm of your hand.
