Rotolight Introduces AEOS Location LED Light

Rotolight has announced the AEOS, a new bi-color, location LED light with an ultra-thin design weighing about three pounds and only .39 inches thick.

Rotolight’s AEOS delivers a light output of 5,750 lux at three feet, but is also one of the most energy efficient LEDs on the market. It is able to run for three hours at 100 percent power on a single 95 watt battery, more than twice as long as the industry standard.

AEOS is the first location LED light to include integrated aluminum handles, which allows users to work the light at angles and positions not otherwise possible. AEOS does not feature a traditional yoke, which typically limits movement of the light to just 30-40 degrees of tilt, limiting control over light spill.

Instead, it includes a professional level ball head as standard, providing complete 360 degree rotation and 200 degrees of tilt when mounted to a light stand. This makes it versatile and enables users to achieve lighting setups not otherwise possible with traditional light sources.

The ball head is made from high-quality, solid aluminum and can support the full weight of the AEOS with battery and barn doors mounted, at any angle.

AEOS features dual controls for brightness and fast, tunable color on location with an accurate color temperature display. AccuColor LED technology delivers industry-leading rendering performance, eliminating the need for timely color correction of skin tones in post-production.

The AEOS comes as standard with a full set of filters: two diffusion filters, a cosmetic peach skin tone diffusion to warm the subject, and a magenta filter, as well as AC/DC power supply and ball head.

There is also a full range of optional accessories available, including a custom-made soft bag capable of holding up to two lights with barn doors, two batteries and two stands, as well as V-lock batteries, barn doors, rain covers, soft boxes and a yoke for studio truss mounting.
