Rosco, founded in 1910, is still best known for the products it originally manufactured: filters for entertainment lighting.

ROSCO is a global provider of lighting solutions and visual effects for the entertainment industry. The company was founded in the United States in 1910 and has since expanded to become a leading supplier of lighting equipment, color filters, and other visual effects for theater, film, and television.

ROSCO Australia is the local branch of ROSCO, operating in the Australian market. The company provides a wide range of lighting solutions, including LED fixtures, colour filters, gobos, and fog machines. They also offer rental services and technical support for productions in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to its focus on entertainment lighting, ROSCO Australia has also expanded into architectural lighting solutions, providing LED lighting fixtures and controls for commercial and residential buildings. The company’s products are designed to enhance the visual experience of architectural spaces while providing energy-efficient solutions.


Rosco Australia now offers products in more than a dozen categories. These include gobos (or patterns), correction filters for film lighting, fog and haze machines, dance floors, scenic paint and backdrops for theatre and film/video.

Rosco Australia also has innovated a number of lighting equipment products, including rotators, projectors, intelligent mirrors and LitePad, a remarkable LED-based fixture.

Over the last 20 years, the range of scenic, props and costume materials used in entertainment and architectural design has grown dramatically. More than just canvas, muslin, velours and polyester fabrics, scenic artisans now use exotic blends of fibers, complex weaves and purely synthetic fabrics as well as woods, composites, pulped sheets, plastics, papers, cardboards and almost any other material they can find. And each one of these materials, when used on stage or in public assembly, must meet local requirements for flame retardance. This can often be achieved with the professional application of the appropriate flame retardant spray for cinema and theatre fabrics.
