Rosco coloured films are probably a household name for anyone who has been involved with film lighting. After the filter specialist took over the LED pioneer DMG Lumière in autumn last year, a first jointly developed product series is now to be released this summer. The new MIX LED lights consist of six different diode colours, red + lime + green + blue + amber + white, and should offer a wider spectrum of colours than normal RGBW or RGBA LEDs. It should also be possible to achieve very exclusive colour tones, as the red and lime-coloured diodes are specially manufactured for MIX.
Colour mixing is carried out using easy-to-use software. Optionally, a light color can be selected from a library to emulate the effect of a classic Rosco color foil, each adapted for artificial or daylight, or a tone can be selected in a 360° color space and brightness and saturation adjusted accordingly. Neutral light can also be mixed with different colour temperatures.
In a myMIX app you can create your own library of colors and share them with others (for example in the lighting team). Colour examples from the real world should be captured and reproduced with the app.
The LEDs are to appear in three versions (MINI, SL1, and MAXI), which are obviously based on the bi-color lamps already available from DMG Lumière, and should also be compatible with their accessories. Prices are not yet available.
