ROSCO is not a new company in the lighting industry and is well known for its light filters and other entertainment and lighting solutions. Now, after their recent acquisition of LED lighting specialist DMG Lumière, they presented their new LED fixture at this year’s NAB show, called the MIX.

The MIX will initially be available in two sizes – the MINI and the SL1 – followed by the release of the third size , namely the MAXI. These sizes have the same parameters as used with the older LED panels by DMG Lumière (the Switch line). The MIX has three different functionality modes:

  • The white mode offers a wide range of tunable white light, from daylight to tungsten, along with green/magenta correction.
  • The color mode enables users to adjust hue, saturation using the 360° hue wheel — with the ability to desaturate colors to either daylight or tungsten — and intensity, including a dimming curve.
  • The gel mode allows users to select a Rosco gel from a vast library of gels and modify the gel’s hue, saturation, and green/magenta shift as needed.
