The Dedolight and its unique system was conceived and designed by Director of Photography Dedo Weigert of Munich, Germany. The project was initially undertaken to fill his own exacting requirement for a powerful yet highly controllable light source which would occupy a minimum amount of space, draw a minimum amount of electricity and produce unprecedented light quality. The result of Dedo's efforts is a comprehensive lighting system offering unique advantages to lighting professionals in many disciplines:
- Ultra compact size
- Light output equal to much larger sources
- Precision lighting with uncanny beam and stray light control
- Extraordinarily even light distribution
- Excellent reach
- Precise colour temperature control
- Variety of projection attachments and accessories
- Versatile mounting accessories
- Variety of power options
- Very low projected heat
- Rugged construction
The lights were awarded the Technical Achievement Award given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the U.S. In just a few years, the Dedolight had established itself as a significant creative contributor to a long list of motion pictures by top Hollywood professionals.
Today, the Dedolight continues to build upon its long list of credits in film, television and still photography and continues to build upon its extensive range of luminaires and system accessories. The unique control capabilities of Dedolight, along with its low projected heat and minimal current draw, also make the Dedolight the ideal choice to light the world's finest galleries, museums, and architectural sites.
