Neo™, set for shipping later this month, has been identified by the expert-judging panel as one of the most innovative new products to be exhibited at the NAB Show 2015. As the British based manufacturer announces a range of new action packed and innovative features, it is no surprise that the brightest on-camera LED Lighting system on the market is turning heads.

Neo™ includes three ground-breaking features that set it apart from the field. Designer Fade™ mode for custom fade up / fade down production effects. True Aperture Dimming™ that accurately calculates the correct aperture (F-Stop) for your subject at a given distance. The Rotolight Neo™ offers an arsenal of Cinematographic Special FX (CineSFX™), which has been designed in collaboration with leading cinematographers and Visual FX artists such as Stefan Lange (SkyFall, Dark Shadows, Batman). CineSFX™ provides customisable creative visual lighting effects, on set or location to simulate Strobe, Lightning, Fire, Cycle, Throb and TV! Rotolight have also developed a 10 piece ‘Add on Colour FX’ filter set which includes a selection of well-known cinematic filters such as ‘Rust’, ‘Mist Blue’ and ‘Hollywood Frost’ that combined with the CineSFX™ mode, will make Neo an incredibly versatile lighting tool for the industry.

Rotolight Neo™ was developed at Pinewood Studios, for the most demanding of professionals. NEO™’s Bi-Colour LED system with AccuColour™ technology delivers exceptional colour rendering CRI>95, and fast, tunable colour on location thanks to the accurate colour temperature display (CCT). Powered by 6xAA’s, AC, DC or D-Tap, Neo™ gives Industry leading performance (1077 Lux at 3 feet), whilst providing a gorgeous soft light source and Rotolight’s signature ‘Ring-Light’ Effect. Dual controls for both dimming and colour make a highly versatile solution for run-and-gun news shooters, filmmakers or stills photographers.

Delivering powerful performance in a compact package, Neo™ can be a secret weapon wherever a key light, fill, extra kick or catch-light is needed. Available as a single or 3 light kit, Neo™ includes a belt pouch, power supply and 4 piece Filter Pack including Diffusion, Skin Tone and Magenta. Starting at just £249/€310/$399.

“As a member of the IABM, Rotolight are very proud that our latest product Neo™ has been recognised in the prestigious Game Changer Awards, 2015. We firmly believe the Neo™ is set to become the new standard in on-camera and location lighting. The latest range of innovative features that we have unveiled for NAB, will enhance the versatility and power of Neo™, cementing it as an invaluable tool for cinematographers, cameramen and photographers alike when the first units ship later this month” Rod Aaron Gammons, Managing Director.

Manex Efrem - Director and Special Effects Technician whose prestigious credits include multi-award winning series Band of Brothers, Gravity, Stardust and War Horse amongst many others, recently chose Rotolight Neo for use on a high profile music Video shoot in Bali.

"Rotolight have created a lighting system that will really change the way we work. The fact that it's lightweight and powerful with excellent versatility in terms of control will optimise workflow. The quality of the LED's and its colour reproduction is ideal when working with talent for ENG, guerrilla style docu's and location work. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new 3 head kit, which is going to be the ultimate production kit for anyone working in the field or studio!"
