IBC 2014 will see the evolution of on-camera LED Lighting with the premiere of the ROTOLIGHT NEO – Rotolight NEO is a revolutionary on-camera or location LED lighting fixture designed for the most demanding of professionals. Featuring Bi-Colour LED lighting technology with best in class colour rendering, Neo is the world’s first on-camera lighting system with accurate electronic colour temperature display (CCT) to enable fast, tuneable colour on location. Neo delivers a powerful 1077 lux at 3 feet (twice that of competing LED on camera lights), whilst providing a gorgeous soft light source, along with industry leading on-camera battery performance and Rotolight’s signature ‘Ring-light’ Effect.

The Rotolight Neo was developed at Pinewood Studios UK, after years of extensive feedback from leading cinematographers and photographers around the world as to what they would most like to see in the next generation on camera light for professional television, film and photographic use. From that feedback the Rotolight ‘Neo’ was born, and it delivers never before seen technology in a truly unique versatile, highly portable package, that is proudly designed and manufactured in the UK.

Neo builds on Rotolight’s multi-award winning LED technology which is used by leading broadcasters, filmmakers and professional photographers the world over including BBC, NBC, CNN, Disney and ITV to name a few.
