Digital Sputnik's New RGB LED Fixtures Were the Main Lights Used in the Upcoming Star Wars Film
Don't be fooled by low CRI, the DS system actually sends more color information to your camera's sensor.
The goal of the DS system is to put the colorist's toolset directly into the lighting technology itself. Digital Sputnik founder Kaur Kallas says that due to their color science, their units were selected to be the main lighting source on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — meaning all the practicals and and off-screen fixtures were Sputnik's. Fully controllable with an iPhone app over Wi-fi, the DS1 units sell for around $2,500 each, the three light DS3 module for around $8,000 and the DS6 light module for $13,500.
