Vice President of DMG Lumière, Nils de Montgrand said, “We are humbled by the recognition that MIX technology has received since its reveal in April. We developed MIX to ensure film technicians like ourselves would have a better onset experience with full colour LED technology. The feedback from users has been incredible and it’s a true honour to be granted the cinecAward by the CTB.”
Patent-pending MIX technology uses six unique coloured LEDs that bring true Rosco colour to a cutting-edge, portable and durable LED fixture. MIX allows users ultimate creative freedom, and exact colour-matching on-set. Created by technicians to improve workflow, the myMIX app gives its users full control, without the need to set up DMX universe or profiles. With a robust library of Rosco gel colours, it permits technicians to mix, save, and share colours with colleagues. Users can also capture a colour with a mobile phone or tablet camera and send the captured colour to the light.
MIX will initially be available in the SL1 and MINI fixture formats. The myMIX app is now available for download onto android and iOS devices.
