dedolight–a story of dedication and success

the origin

The first Dedolight was built in 1984 with the original concept evolving out of my experiences as a Director of Photography since 1963. For many years, we built only one version and size, and still, it became the single best selling lighting instrument for professional motion picture, television, still photography, and architectural uses worldwide.

By 1990, Dedolight and its revolutionary optical principle of the dual lens concept had so successfully established itself as a well known standard in the international film community that it earned the Technical Achievement Award from the Oscar Committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

By the year 2000, larger sizes of lights in both daylight and tungsten were introduced - the Series 400. These lights, while incorporating both a patented triple zoom focus and our new patented Double Aspheric technology allows for further enhanced light output, tighter focusing range, and more even light and color distribution.

It didn’t take long for the revolutionary Series 400 to gain recognition among the professional community. In 2002, the dedolight design team was presented with the Cinec Award, and in 2003 awarded with both a Scientific and Engineering Award from the Oscar Committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and an esteemed Emmy Award from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. 

2003 also hosted the introduction of a new generation of the classic dedolight when we developed a way to incorporate both the qualities of the new generation “Double Aspherics2” system with the added focusing motion into the classic dedolight.

Through the years, we have continued to stay on top of market trends and needs, and while we continue to reinvent our dedolights, we are constantly creating new lighting equipment for the ever - evolving professional. Since we understand that many lighting situations demand both direct light as well as gentle, wraparound soft light, we also build dedicated soft light sources that offer a distinctly defined clean character beam without compromise. 

From the beginning, we have never stopped trying to improve our dedolights and we have relentlessly pursued innovative optical principles and concepts designed to further improve our professional lighting instruments, and it does not end here, it continues to be a day - to - day ingredient of our continued dedication and enthusiasm.

 
 
dedolight

Many lighting situations demand both direct light as well as gentle wrap around soft light. As manufacturers of various types of lighting equipment, we also build dual purpose light sources which may be converted from direct light to a soft light source. 

To eliminate having to compromise the quality of light, often common with dual purpose lighting instruments, Dedotec raised the bar and began to design and manufacture totally dedicated lighting instruments:

  • Precise focusing instruments with a distinctly defined beam character yet very smooth and even light distribution within the beam
  • Dedicated single purpose soft light sources, that are best suited for the task without compromise
  • Now offering the image creator both faces of light
Two Faces
 
 
 

The Classic Series • Low Voltage 100 W / 150 W • Halogen

Don't let looks deceive you! While maintaining the integrity of the Classic Series, we have simply made the best even better by adding our patented Double Aspherics2 technology. Originally developed for the award winning dedolight Series 400, this breakthrough optical technology with two relation computed aspherical lenses and a zoom focus mechanism allows for smooth and even light distribution in all focus positions, increased focusing range and still uses 12 V and 24 V low voltage lamps.  

The result of this new technology is to take the unique quality of the dedolight one step further. Compared to its predecessor (when used with the new 150 W dimming power supply) the output in flood is doubled, and in spot, three times brighter.  

Following our new philosophy of "the two faces of light", you will also find new dedicated soft lights in this range. Designed for one purpose only, these soft lights provide optimum and compromise free performance. 

Technical Advantages

  • Higher light output
  • Smoother field of light
  • Cleaner spot
  • Improved full flood
  • Better barn door control
  • Improved character of light
  • Incredibly small

Technical Specifications

  • Two relation computed aspheric lenses
  • Larger reflector
  • Added relative motion of second lens (zoom focus)
  • Shield/baffle integrated in new movement to provide cleaner beam

 
 
 

Series 400 / 650 • 400 W to 650 W • Discharge or Halogen

When the larger Series 400 lights were designed, we borrowed the dual lens concept from the small classic dedolight. This alone did not prove good enough for the high standards set for this series. We wanted the focusing range that had set apart the classic dedolight system from other lights. We also wanted a distinct clean beam with no stray light for lighting with utmost precision. Within the beam, we also wanted to eliminate hot spots that are typical of other lights. At the same time, it was important to eliminate the color distribution problems that usually plague daylight sources. 

It took four years of intensive optical research to solve these problems. The seemingly endless series of computer simulations and prototypes resulted not only in several new patents protecting this new level of technology, but also provides the discerning professional with three outstanding precision tools. 

The new triple zoom focus and relation computed double Aspherics2 system is common to the: 

  • dedolight DLH400DT / DLH402DT, 400 / 575 W daylight/tungsten version 
  • dedolight DLH650T / DLH652T, 650 W halogens light more info

In the professional community, these innovations found enthusiastic response and received both a Scientific and Engineering Award from the Oscar committee and the Emmy statuette from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. 

 
 
 

Soft Light • 400 W to 4 x 1000 W

A dedicated 400/575 W soft light. Works with an amazing variety of soft boxes: dedoflex, Photoflex and Chimera. Two times the light output when compared to any soft box mounted to a Fresnel fixture. Perfectly even light distribution. Works with the proven dedolight DEB402DT ballast (same ballast as for DLH402DT focusing daylight fixture). 

Both dedolight Panaura® soft boxes feature huge diffuser areas producing a beautiful, wrap around, soft light. 

These Panaura® soft boxes are extremely flat, making them ideal for work in confined spaces. The light output has to be seen to be believed and the light quality is absolutely stunning! 

Several kits are available which utilize the Panaura®.

Projection optics which can live up to any of the most expensive camera lenses. Perfect performance, super high transmission, perfect resolution. None of the seven sins of imaging, but at an exceptional price.

Precision light AND precision shadows.

Similarly, for the creative composition of images we also need the gentle, subtle light/shadow transitions, often called soft lights.

Also in this respect we pursued perfection.

Large light-emitting surfaces with a character lovingly embracing the objects of desire – a wrap-around light.

Totally without hotspot.

LEDRAPTOR

The Lightstream Tools

dedolight Lightstream & Eflect
The new tools, parallel beam light fixtures and highly developed optical systems

The ‚dedolight Lightstream’ should not be regarded as a general lighting tutorial. Here we will mainly concentrate on various aspects of reflected light. 

We are well aware that light and lighting is a vast subject with an incredible variety of aspects about the character of light. There is unnoticeable natural light, there is unnoticeably created light. There is unnoticeable light with subtle accents, guiding the attention. Such lighting can serve as an element of image composition. Then we have the many characters of noticeable lighting, as gentle as the autumn light in Paris, which makes women all look like they have been painted by Renoir. All the way from this wonderful, gentle, amiable light character that makes people glow, to the dramatic light characters as you find them in Caravaggio and El Greco. Yes, we all know that lighting and the art of lighting should not be regarded as a value on its own. 

The most important is the story that we need to tell and what style we choose. And from this vast field of many subjects, here we are mainly talking about aspects of reflected light in its purity, and mixed with other lighting instruments and characters. Here we want to talk about the tools, the physics and practices; and hopefully we will be able to give some valuable explanations and hints.
