Rosco Releases 12 New Flavors in Their E-Colour Gel Line

December 20, 2009 - Hollister, Missouri

Rosco has added 12 gorgeous new colors to its range of e-color filters.


The filters are additions to Rosco's E-Colour range. This range, widely used around the world for film, video and theatre, is our version of the traditional European system. Rosco has been manufacturing E-Colour since 1992, using the same colors, names and numbers as the original Cinemoid® system.

But Rosco has added some unique colors and diffusions, including this latest release of 12 new colors. They are different from any of the colors in the Roscolux or Cinegel series and may very well be exactly what you need for your next production.
