The Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) in Orbiter allows for optics with vastly different properties to be connected to the fixture.
Open Face 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.
Projection The high-quality projection optics contain high-end lenses that provide even illumination and colour across the entire beam field for superior results. The fixed beam angles available are 15º, 25º, 35º (wider angles may be added in the future). The zoom projection optics allow for flexibility in all kinds of applications.
Dome The dome optics are fabric spheres available in three different diameters - small (approx. 0.25 m), medium (approx. 0.5 m) and large (approx. 0.9 m). The dome emits omnidirectional light, great for illuminating a large area with a beautiful, soft quality of light.
Light Banks The light bank adapter creates a direct mounting point for Chimera and DoPchoice products. With easy attachment and no additional optical elements needed, the light bank adapter allows for a controlled soft light with amazing output.
Say hello to ARRI Spectra
Six-Colour Light Engine Including a red, green, blue, amber, cyan, and lime LED, the ARRI Spectra six-colour light engine translates into a wider colour gamut, more accurate colours, and most importantly, higher colour rendition across the entire CCT range. Wide Gamut Hues are precisely reproduced and the increased gamut allows for 15% more colour possibilities when compared to previous ARRI light engines. Ultra-High Colour Rendering Orbiter has a larger CCT range of 2,000 to 20,000 K with ultra-high colour rendition across all colour temperatures. Skin tones look amazing and natural. Compact Light Engine Cutting-edge LEDs that have never been used before in a luminaire and their arrangement creates a homogeneous colour beam field with amazing brightness. Colour Sensor Mode The new Colour Sensor Mode in Orbiter will read the ambient colour surrounding the fixture and reproduce the colour with great accuracy.
Sheer Output Orbiter is an extremely bright and powerful, directional LED fixture with an output similar to that of the corresponding HMI systems. Orbiter’s high, yet tunable, ARRI Spectra light engine output can create hard shadows with defined edges. This revolutionary light engine is 76 times smaller than the L10’s light engine but produces the same power draw and greater output. A dense arrangement of over 190 LEDs gives Orbiter a point source-like aperture while maintaining full-color tunability with a new six-color LED mixture. These cutting-edge LEDs have never been used before in a luminaire and the arrangement creates a homogeneous color-beam field with amazing brightness.
Technology Unleashed A new era of digital lighting is truly upon us. Orbiter is the most technologically advanced luminaire ever to be created for image capture while maintaining superior colour fidelity. With state‑of‑the‑art electronics, Orbiter is able to perform more tasks than previous luminaires.
Electronics Orbiter’s processor is four times faster than the SkyPanel with 125 times more memory, setting the stage for extensive software features and updates in the future. Dimming Using a combination of three dimming techniques, Orbiter’s cutting-edge electronics provide smooth dimming down to zero without colour changes or jumps. Power Orbiter includes a lightweight internal power supply and a 3-pin XLR battery input for 48 V batteries. Weatherproof Electronics Orbiter’s processor is four times faster than the SkyPanel with 125 times more memory, setting the stage for extensive software features and updates in the future.
Powerful Software 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.
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.
Additional Features Over 240 favourite colours or lighting effects can be stored in Orbiter. These favourites can be easily selected via an easy to use interface or via DMX.
Operational Modes Orbiter offers three operational modes to optimise the fixture's performance for different applications. High colour rendering mode provides the best colour quality possible, high output mode generates the best brightness with slightly lower colour rendition, while low noise mode creates a balance for quiet operation with decent output.
Additional Features Other new features in LiOS include simplified DMX modes, optics recognition, multi-language support, custom boot screen, and many more still to come.
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.
Connectivity. Ready for today, prepared for tomorrow Communication to and from a luminaire is crucial to create robust networks and dynamic control. Orbiter includes a full suite of input and output connectors which enable communication to the fixture in whatever way is required.
