RoscoVIEW: Variable Intensity and Exposure on Windows
A Solution For Studios With Windows
RoscoVIEW is a unique two-part window control system for film and television professionals. It consists of wide width polarizing filter installed on windows and a matching camera polarizing filter. With RoscoVIEW panels on the windows, the exterior exposure can be easily controlled by rotating the camera filter. Rotating the camera filter changes the degree of cross polarization on the window where the RoscoVIEW filter is installed. This results in 100% control of exterior brightness as seen through the window. The ambient light coming into the room or studio is reduced by only one stop.
Technically, this is achieved using cross-polarization. The window panels and the camera filter are both one f-stop Rosco linear polarizers. By rotating the camera filter, the degree of cross-polarization on the RoscoVIEW window filter is changed, resulting in 100% control of exterior brightness as seen through the camera.
RoscoVIEW camera filters utilize the same polarizers as panels, only in photographic glass. They are available in a variety of sizes for mattebox or rotator applications.

Rosco offers motorized camera filter rotators which can be IP controlled. (IP control allows operation anywhere where a network or internet connection is available.) Remote operation is accomplished using either a hard switch or the Rosco Graphical User Interface (GUI). The GUI can control up to eight separate rotators in any location.
