Rosco is continuing to invest in developing new fixtures and hardware for the industry. The Silk 110 is the new fixture in Rosco’s Silk series of LED fixtures for film and broadcast. Measuring just under 13” square, the Silk 110 delivers 2000 lumens of output with a power consumption of only 110W. The color temperature range is 2800k to 6500 with a CRI, TLCI, and R9 of greater than 96 at both ends of the range. Color temperature and output level can be controlled via onboard controls or via DMX. The beam can be controlled with barndoors as well as 45 or 60-degree egg crate louvers. The Silk 110 can be powered from AC or optionally with a battery plate that enables the use of a V-lock or Anton/ Bauer battery. At last year’s NAB, Rosco showed their RoscoLED LED tape. This year they showed a new line of power supplies to simplify the installation of RoscoLED. There are three models of RoscoLED Control Boxes which work with their Static Color, VariWhite, and VariColor tape products respectively. These 400W power supplies are assigned a DMX start address with dip-switches and then auto-address their output ports based on the type of tape they are designed to drive. The Static Color unit will drive up to (4) 5m sections of tape, and the VariWhite and VariColor will each drive up to (2) 5m sections of tape. Rosco rounds out the system with connectorized cables in 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5m lengths and “Y” splitters. Power in and through are Neutrik PowerCON connectors, DMX-In is a 5-pin XLR or RJ45, and DMX-Out is RJ45 for easy daisy-chaining to other Control Boxes.
