Rotolight has teamed up with Elinchrom to integrate its Skyport Protocol across its product range, starting with Rotolight’s NEO 2.
Rotolight has collaborated with Elinchrom to integrate its Skyport 2.4Ghz high speed sync (HSS) wireless flash receiver into NEO 2, eliminating the need to purchase a standalone flash receiver, while also providing reliability, range, flexibility and control for multiple off camera lighting setups.
Skyport enables users to wirelessly control up to ten lights, in four groups, at a distance of up to 656-feet with the new Rotolight HSS transmitter (capable of 1/8000th), which has been optimized for Rotolight by Elinchrom.
“Elinchrom Skyport represents the best in class wireless HSS triggering technology, and its combination with Rotolight’s pioneering LED product range, will provide creative imagemakers with a unique innovative feature set, and unrivaled consistency and reliability” said Rod Aaron Gammons, managing director of Rotolight.
Rotolight recently announced the world’s first continuous LED lights with HSS flash capability, providing a game changing product to photographers and filmmakers who want an all-in-one solution. Unlike traditional strobe/flash, AEOS and the upcoming NEO 2 have no recycle time, which ensures users never miss a shot.
Filmmakers will also enjoy the benefits of the Skyport integration, providing them with wireless remote control of color temperature, brightness and remote triggering of Rotolight’s CineSFX, an award-winning suite of customizable cinematic lighting effects, such as lightning, fire, gunshot, paparazzi and TV flicker to enhance video productions.
