ARRI’s new LED point source Orbiter ushers in a new era of digital lighting, a versatile lamp head featuring a range of changeable optics, a state-of-the-art ARRI Spectra six-colour light engine, innovative software, and much more. The Orbiter is an ultra-bright, tunable, and directional LED fixture from ARRI. All systems in Orbiter are completely new and designed with versatility in mind.
Changeable optics is the core innovation of the Orbiter and there are a wide variety of optics to choose from, Orbiter transforms into the perfect light for your application without sacrificing beam, output, or colour quality. The Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) in Orbiter allows for optics with vastly different properties to be connected to the fixture.
The open face optics produce a high-output, directional beam of light in several different beam angles including 15º, 30º, and 60º. Perfect for throwing light long distances or providing a broad swath of light.
The dome optics are fabric spheres available in three different diameters - small, medium and large, ranging from 30 cm (12") up to 100 cm (39") diameter. The dome emits omnidirectional light, great for illuminating a large area with a beautiful, soft quality of light.
The QLM in Orbiter creates a direct mounting point for dedicated Chimera and DoPchoice softbox products. With easy attachment and no additional optical elements needed, the softboxes allow for a controlled soft light with amazing output.
Orbiter is able to take advantage of over five years of software development for the SkyPanel. Orbiter’s new software called LiOS (Lighting Operating System) includes all the innovative and groundbreaking features from SkyPanel plus others, making Orbiter one of the most fully‑featured luminaires on the market.
The Orbiter offers a wide range of connectivity for futureproofing. These include an SD Card slot for future expansion of software, USB-C, USB-A, 5-Pin XLR which allows for conventional DMX & RDM communication, EtherCON ports supporting Art-Net 4, sACN and TCP/IP, Camera Sync to connect with a wide variety of motion picture cameras and Wireless which allows for wireless DMX communication.
Removable Control Panel
Redesigned from the ground up, the Orbiter control panel is an evolutionary step in light fixture control. Including a 4” full-colour display, quick navigation buttons, and integrated sensors, the Orbiter control panel allows for easy use with a graphic user interface. Simplified menu structure and reimagined user interfaces provide one-glance operational views and uncluttered screens. This intuitive design makes changing colours or finding a setting easier than ever before while still maintaining the powerful features Orbiter has to offer. In addition, the control panel is removable and can be used handheld with the aid of a 5 or 15 m (16.4 or 49.2 ft) control panel cable.
8 Colour Modes
LiOS’ eight-colour modes are available including CCT, HSI, individual colour, x/y coordinates, gel, source matching, lighting effects, and the new colour sensor mode which measures ambient light and recreates it through Orbiter’s output.
