The Anova iPhone Controlled LED Video Light “Lights” Up NAB

Before we went to the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show this year, I was on the lookout for the Rotolight Anova LED EcoFlood light. I had seen an ad for it and I knew it would be on display at the B&H Audio Video booth, so we headed over there to take a look. I wasn’t disappointed as it was there front and center, surrounded by other people equally as interested as I was.

Why the buzz? Well, there are some state-of-the-art features that are very impressive. Watch this video to see:

  • How you can change the light output without affecting the color temperature, making this light perfect for a studio situation. You can also change the color temperature without changing the light output;
  • What you can control wirelessly (from your iPhone no less!);
  • How you can create an output/color temperature setting and duplicate it repeatedly and in additional units.

While the price point is a bit steep, $2,355 without the barn doors, the Rotolight Anova LED EcoFlood is definitely worth a look and will revolutionize video lighting. Obviously, I was not disappointed in this fantastic light and hope that we’ll be seeing this technology in less expensive units.
