The Rotolight ANOVA PRO is a bi-colour LED system, suitable for high speed and capable of accurately reproducing white light from candlelight through to full daylight with an easy operational interface and exceptional colour rendering (CRI:96+) and incorporates the capability of synthesising lighting effects such as lightning flash etc., True Aperture Dimming, Designer Fade and flash sync/remote triggering via 3.4mm minijack.

Fully battery operated (runs with an Anton Bauer Battery affixed or external 12V source.  Now 43% brighter than the Rotolight Anova 2 and featuring enhanced 'Best in Class' colour rendering, the new ANOVA PRO features new LEDs than before with a 50 degree beam angle that eliminates hard shadows and hotspots and delivers a powerful 6545 Lux at 3 feet (Rotolight claim equivalent to 5K tungsten) whilst using 94% less energy than a standard Tungsten bulb with virtually no heat.  

VMI's Rotolights feature Anton Bauer goldmount battery clips and battery kit as standard.

These are now the Rotolight Anova PRO, which are 43% brighter than the Anova 2 lights and have flash photography capability and lighting effects too.

Rotolight is operable from using WiFi on iPad or iPhone to remotely control brightness, colour, system settings, though the on-camera controls are very easy to use. However, to achieve this, you will need to use the Rotolight Magic EyeTM App (available separately from the iTunes Store).

Exceptional Colour Rendering

Not all LEDs offer the same quality of light and the Rotolight Anova Pro offers excellence here. 

Capable of accurately reproducing white light from candlelight through to full daylight in 10 degree Kelvin Steps, with a real time colour temperature display, in independent tests with Alan Roberts, ex BBC R&D, achieved an exceptional score for colour rendering of CRI:96+ and also forskin tones R15>99.  The Anova also includes an accurate colour termperature display too.

Features

As per previous Rotolight Anova lights, The Rotolight ANOVA PRO also features full wired DMX control and inbuilt WiFi as standard, allowing wireless remote control of brightness, colour temperature, and system settings via iPhone or iPad, using the Rotolight Magic EyeTM App (available separately from the iTunes Store).

Anova PRO features four further unique innovations: 

  • CINESFX ™ Provides an powerful arsenal of Cinematographic Lighting FX, such as synthesising lightning or random television lighting noise.  (CineSFX™) with remote trigger functionality for use on set or location. 
  • TRUE APERTURE DIMMING ™ calculates and displays the correct aperture (F-Stop) for your subject at a given distance. 
  • DESIGNER FADE ™ provides custom fade up / fade down production effects and
