Rosco announces Silk line upgrades
Posted on Thursday, April 13th, 2017
“We’re very excited to share these improvements to our Silk line with the marketplace”, said Tracey Cosgrove, Rosco’s senior director of products. “We listened to feedback from our loyal film and broadcast lighting customers and responded with a suite of new features.
“These product enhancements all focus on increased precision, control, greater overall functionality and ease of use – all of which our customers requested. Not only are these new features improvements over our original version of Silk, but they also surpass the offerings of other LED soft light fixture manufacturers.”
The newest versions of the Silk family of products maintain all of the qualities of the original Silk products, including pure, soft white light and high colour fidelity. All Silk fixtures in the product line now feature new control options, including wireless DMX, as well as greater control of output and colour temperature, and overall improvements to the units’ physical properties.
New Features include two new DMX modes, including: DMX Master, which enables one Silk fixture to control others on set that share a common base address, and Wireless DMX via Lumen Radio technology.
DMX dimming is now possible in 8 bit or 16 bit mode, offering a multitude of smoother dimming options.
The physical look of the units has been enhanced as well, including knobs that are flush from the main control housing, a matte finish on the control housing, and larger safety/rope hanging ports.
Silk is currently available in a variety of sizes, including Silk 110, Silk 205, Silk 210, and Silk 305, and can be purchased through Rosco’s worldwide dealer network. Other variants including Silk 220 and Silk 410 will be coming soon.
