Rosco Laboratories has released of their new OPTI-SCULPT filters that can shape the beam of a fixture. While designed for use on LED fixtures, OPTI-SCULPT filters are heat resistant, making them suitable for use on traditional tungsten instruments as well. Made from flame-retardant polycarbonate, the range of filters have higher transmission rates versus standard diffusion materials and produce repeatable beam shaping results.

“We’re thrilled to introduce OPTI-SCULPT. These filters have been engineered to enable lighting professionals to accurately control the shape of their light,” said Tracey Cosgrove, Rosco’s Director of Products. “Rosco has been coloring and shaping light for 108 years, and OPTI-SCULPT filters are a continuation of that legacy. This important innovation will allow our customers to achieve new lighting control with their current fixtures in ways they never could with existing diffusion filters.”

The filters come in 20” x 24” and 40” x 24” (50cm x 60cm and 100cm x 60cm) seamless sheets that can be cut to any size and shape – offering lighting designers an abundance of flexibility and versatility to use these filters on virtually any fixture at an affordable price.

There are six different symmetrical and asymmetrical patterns currently available: 10°, 10°x20°, 10°x30°, 10°x60°, 15°x35°, and the unique 40°/60° Reversible. Additional patterns are already in development and are expected to debut later this summer.

OPTI-SCULPT filters from Rosco allow designers to easily shape the beam of lightFeatures include:

  • Engineered and laboratory tested for accurate and repeatable beam shaping
  • High transmission vs. standard diffusion materials
  • Manufactured using heat-resistant, flame-retardant polycarbonate
  • Durable – the filter’s performance is not adversely affected by dust or fingerprints.
