The British lighting specialist Rotolight has already announced its first RGBWW Softlight in the run-up to IBC 2019. Rotolight wants to make waves with the Titan X2: not only is it the brightest 2x1 Softlight currently available (according to Rotolight) with a light output of 15,525 lux at 3,200K or 16,800 lux at 5,600K at a distance of one metre, but it also offers a whole range of completely new features in addition to high colour accuracy. The colour temperature can be set from 2,800K to 10,000K, a total of 16.7 million colours can be displayed.
To compare the brightness: at 3200K and a distance of 3m, the brightness of the Titan X2 is 2,220 lux; the similarly large ARRI SkyPanel S-60C creates 1,258 lux. The TLCI value is 98, the CRI value is at a color temperature of 5600K > 95, at 3200K > 95 and at the skin tone R15 equal to 98.
Rotolight TITAN X2
The Rotolight Titan X2 has 5 lighting modes (CCT, HSI, RGBW, XY and filter), an electronically variable beam angle between 68 and 150 degrees, can be dimmed from 0-100% and is flicker-free at any shutter angle and intensity. Also included are numerous lighting effects such as fire, flash, pistol shot, television or paparazzi flash thunderstorms. The Titan X2 also offers the possibility to produce high speed sync flashes with a length of 8000ths of a second with a zero recycling time and the possibility to trigger the flash wirelessly.
Rotolight TITAN X2
A real innovation is Rotolights SmartSoft technology, which allows electronic control of light scattering, focus and propagation, eliminating the need for gels. 1,300 settings are available to simulate the usual standard gels. SmartSoft can be set on the luminaire, via DMX or wirelessly. The diffusion can be continuously controlled from 0 - 2 stops.
Rotolight TITAN X2 Photometric data
Operation is via the integrated colour touch panel, which displays the current parameters as well as Quick Start icons, 10 user presets and filters, or via wired/wDMX, Elinchrom Skyport, RJ45 as well as LumenRadio and Bluetooth via app - the latter, however, only from the beginning of 2020 via firmware upgrade.
Rotolight TITAN X2 Operation via App
The Rotolight Titan X2 consumes 420W, but it can also be operated with batteries - but then only with 50% of the intensity.
The Titan X2 has a 650 x 300 mm light aperture, weighs 10.6kg (only the body) and will be delivered from November - but can already be pre-ordered. It comes in three different versions with gooseneck, standard yoke or pole yoke and costs about 4.800€ respectively (the two yoke versions) about 5.100€.
