If you happen to own a Rotolight NEO 3 or AEOS 2, Rotolight has released a new firmware update for those fixtures.

This firmware upgrade adds a number of enhancements to the functionality of the lights while also implementing some user-requested features. Rotolight has also made some general performance improvements.

The latest firmware update includes selectable fan control modes, including Silent Fan Mode, and it is fully user-controllable.

A new ‘Lux mode’ setting allows users to extract maximum performance from the light, or to achieve a constant exposure across color temperatures depending on user preference.

A new Touchscreen Lock Mode has been added to enable the lights to be placed in any location whilst preventing accidental adjustment to chosen settings. To activate, you simply press and hold both knobs at the same time to lock/unlock the screen.

This update also features enhancements to the CineSFX modes, including improved navigation of SFX controls, as well as enhanced color realism, and refinements to triggering of SFX via the wireless Elinchrom Skyport transmitter.

The Rotolight NEO 3/ AEOS 2 also includes Dynamic Multi-Language Support which offers real-time adjustment throughout all menus and displays, in native Italian, French, German, Spanish and Dutch.

These new firmware additions have been developed alongside a suite of general performance improvements and minor bug fixes, including improved battery performance in maximum flash power, and improved third-party battery support in ‘max’ flash mode.

Firmware roadmap

A major update (Firmware 2.0) is expected in late July that will provide support for Rotolight’s new native iOS & Android app which is in the final stages of beta testing and will launch simultaneously. The Rotolight app will provide wireless real-time control of brightness, color temperature, HSI, gels, SFX, flash settings and more for the AEOS 2/NEO 3.

Additionally, this update includes a brand new green/magenta correction control, along with numerous additional enhancements.

I am not quite sure why the iOS & Android app has taken so long. Most lighting companies have had apps for years and Rotolight originally announced the app last year in October. The Rotolight Native iOS & Android App version 1.0 was supposed to be available for all Rotolight users on 1st June.
