Digital Sputnik has teased its new APOLLO 1. They are touting it as being lighter, brighter, and more intelligent than the DS1.
A lot of details still haven’t been made available, but here is what we do know about the APOLLO 1.
The APOLLO 1 is a compact-sized ultra-bright RGBW LED light that draws 100W. Digital Sputnik claims that it has an output of 32,000lx / 2973 fc at a distance of 1m / 3.28ft.
The light consists of 16 high output RGBW LED’s, and the APOLLO 1 features Pixel/ Media mapping, full App control, and effects, all in a compact well-made housing.
The light can be powered via an external V-lock battery.
The system has been designed to be extremely modular so you can combine multiple APOLLO 1 fixtures to create larger arrays.
The light will also work with an optional Bowens mount adapter.
Digital Sputnik fixtures have been used on movies such as Dune, Alien, Star Wars, and Transformers. A lot of the development for the APOLLO 1 was based directly on what Digital Sputnik had learned from how their lights were being used on these productions.
The APOLLO 1 will be available for orders at the end of October 2021. There is no indication yet of pricing.
