In 1990 the unique innovation of the Dedolight system was recognised by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with a Technical Achievement Award; this was further followed by a Cinec award in 2002 and both an Academy Scientific and Engineering Award and Emmy Award in 2003.
The Dedo light has been referred to as the most innovative lightning system ever developed for motion picture and television. It is rugged, dimmable, can be dropped without destroying the lamp, has been designed so that it is focusable - allowing for a strong clean beam without stray light and is available in many different configurations. Furthermore, the Dedo lights can be powered from a variety of sources. These lights are very efficient providing strong light output without consuming tremendous wattage.
The Dedo lighting system offers tremendous versatility in that it is compact, built for travel and rugged treatment, and gives the user many options on how it can be configured. The fact a dimmer is built in and accessories can be fitted to add effects makes this light suitable for many different uses. There are more affordable lights on the market, however like most things in life you get what you pay for, and with the Dedo system you get a lot for your money.
