ARRI SkyPanel Is a Bright, Fully Tuneable Softlight

Publish date:

ARRI recently unveiled SkyPanel, a line of bright, compact LED softlights that has been lauded for its versatility and power. Now available, SkyPanel lights bring myriad options for studio and mobile applications.

Cinematographer Cory Geryak knows lighting. Formerly a gaffer on films including Inception and The Dark Knight, Geryak recently used ARRI SkyPanels on a commercial shoot. "It puts out an impressive amount of light for such a small fixture," he notes. High output is not usually associated with a fully tuneable LED fixture, but with the SkyPanel, ARRI has been able to accomplish both. Brighter than a 2 kW tungsten softlight or a 6 kW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S60 has more than enough light for most applications.

SkyPanel "C" (Color) versions have the ability to adjust the correlated color temperature anywhere between 2,800°K and 10,000°K, with excellent color rendition over the entire range. Geryak adds, "SkyPanel's big advantage is color tuneability, especially for space lights and mixed light environments. To be able to mix colors on the dials of the SkyPanel is a huge benefit."

ARRI SkyPanel is currently available in two sizes: S60 and S30. The S60 is a mid-range model, featuring a light aperture of 645mm x 300mm and accommodating the vast majority of applications. The S30 is half the length of the S60 and perfect for on-the-go applications. Both models are available in fully color-tuneable and remote phosphor versions.
