A ‘no-compromise’ tuneable LED soft light has been launched by Rosco. The new Silk 210 is claimed to offer ‘a unique combination of precise colour quality and powerful output in an efficient, ergonomic form factor.’ Independent tests have measured its colour quality at a TLCI rating of 97, and a CRI of 98 at 3200K, which should result in excellent skin tones and vibrant colours.
The lightweight Silk 210 is suitable for broadcast studios, film sets or for location lighting, and uses broad-spectrum daylight and tungsten balanced LEDs, which are tuneable from 2800K-6500K. It operates either under mains power or can be used with Anton Bauer or V-Lock batteries.
It outputs 2400 lux at 1m (at 5600K), offers smooth, flicker-free dimming, has DMX and local control, and can be fitted with a wide range of accessories.
“In developing Silk 210, I wanted to deliver a luminaire for Rosco that cinematographers and broadcast lighting specifiers would call on time and time again,” said David Amphlett, Rosco’s product development manager for broadcast lighting. “We’ve worked tirelessly to develop a fixture with unsurpassed colour quality, and importantly, a light that’s robust and easy to deploy. With the introduction of this luminaire, lighting professionals no longer need to choose between colour quality and output in a soft light.”
