Arri SkyPanel S60-C Features
The new ARRI SkyPanel S60-C is an exceptionally versatile LED soft light. It is compact, fully tuneable and delivering light of unsurpassed power and quality. Unlike other tuneable fixtures, the Arri SkyPanel S60-C makes no sacrifice when it comes to light output.
Fully Tuneable. Get the colour you want in seconds.
SkyPanel ‘C’ (Colour) versions have the ability to adjust the correlated colour temperature anywhere between 2,800 K and 10,000 K, with excellent colour rendition over the entire range. Full plus and minus green correction can be achieved with the simple turn of a knob. In addition to CCT control, vivid colour selection and saturation adjustment is also possible.
Applications for this controllability range from quickly adjusting the CCT to set the mood of a scene, to selecting the perfect green colour to wash a greenscreen. Each LED light engine is computer calibrated in order to ensure unit-to-unit and batch-to-batch consistency, as well as accurate colour temperatures. The SkyPanel series of lights also works in concert with the L-Series, ARRI’s LED Fresnel line, perfectly.
Tremendous Output. One of the brightest soft lights on the market.
High output is usually not associated with a fully tuneable LED fixture, but with the SkyPanel ARRI has been able to accomplish both. SkyPanel has tremendous light output across the entire CCT range. Brighter than a 2 kW tungsten soft light or a 6 kW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S60 has more than enough light for most applications. In some cases the fixture can even compete with natural sunlight; at the same time, it is able to perform beautifully at lower light levels.
True Soft Light Beam Quality.
Soft and uniform is the name of the game.
Soft lights are known for their smooth quality of light and even, uniform beam field – SkyPanel is no different. The combination of the curated selection of diffusion panels, LED mixing chamber and large light aperture allows for the light to wrap around objects, eliminating sharp shadows and making for a perfect beauty light. The beam field is homogeneous in both colour and intensity.
LED white light without sacrifices.
ARRI has always been at the forefront of LED white light colour quality and SkyPanel lives up to this standard. Natural rendition of skin tones, accurate colour reproduction and precise colour temperature settings are all areas where SkyPanel excels. Whether you measure the colour rendition using CRI (Colour Rendering Index), CQS (Colour Quality Scale) or TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index), SkyPanel performs beautifully.
A Single Soft, Clean Shadow. The proof is in the shadows.
SkyPanel perfectly mixes some 2,000 calibrated red, green, blue and white LEDs into one homogeneous beam of soft light. In addition to providing excellent light, the SkyPanel also provides excellent shadows. The shadows are soft in nature and do not exhibit multiple edges or strange colours, making SkyPanel one of the best LED soft lights for shadow rendition on the market.
Familiar but Revolutionary. Easy to use.
The SkyPanel user interface is designed to be incredibly easy to use, but also to make a wide range of controls available to the user, all at the same time. With three simple knobs, the colour temperature, green/magenta point, intensity, hue and saturation can be adjusted instantly. People who have never used the light before find the interface effective and intuitive. In addition to the on-board controls, all functions can be remotely adjusted via DMX or LAN network connections.
