Rosco Launches RoscoLED Tape – Vibrant, Versatile Lighting Solutions

USA – Rosco Laboratories has announced the launch of RoscoLED Tape. Developed specifically for set designers and film makers, RoscoLED Tape offers a multitude of solutions for adding attractive accent lighting into set pieces for broadcast studios and television and feature films.

RoscoLED Tape comes in easy‐to-use kits, which include multiple reels of RoscoLED Tape featuring pre‐configured plug & play connectors for easy installation. Each kit includes a control box with quick connection ports for power, DMX control and LED Tape outputs. There are three versions of the RoscoLED Tape Kits:

  • Static White RoscoLED Tape Kit which is available in Tungsten (3000K) or Daylight (5600K)
  • VariWhite RoscoLED Tape Kit, which offers dual chip, high CRI LEDs that are tunable from 3000K-6500K
  • VariColor RoscoLED Tape Kit, offering an array of vibrant hues using a blend of colour-mixing RGB+W LEDs

Each kit component is also available to purchase individually.

Also available is the RoscoLED Tape Pro Gaffers Kit. Suitable for film makers with the challenge of illuminating confined spaces on set, the Pro Gaffers Kit offers a selection of easy-to-use strips of RoscoLED Tape along with power and control accessories including a car adaptor, AA battery holder and single fade dimmer.

“RoscoLED Tape was developed in an effort to meet the demands of set lighting professionals who require high colour quality and strong output, particularly on camera,” said Jack Burwick, product development manager for LED Systems at Rosco. “When RoscoLED Tape was in previews, it illuminated a number of sets beautifully, including sets designed by Adrian Goldberg, senior lighting designer of TAD Lighting Services, Ltd.”

Goldberg used RoscoLED Tape in installations including CBC Studios, the London 2012 Olympics, Rogers NHL Studio and the Toronto Pan Am Games. “We found just about every background and detail for the Rogers NHL Studio was enhanced with variable white or variable colour product allowing 360 degree camera positioning in the seven set studio,” said Goldberg.

Goldberg continued: “For the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games we used 400 meters of RoscoLED Tape in a display, enabling us to match the colours of the nightly Panamania Fireworks Spectacular as well as the pastel shades of the event logos.”

RoscoLED Tape is available now through Rosco’s international network of dealers.
