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 in Orbiter. With a wide variety of optics to choose from, Orbiter transforms into the perfect light for your application without sacrificing beam, output, or color 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 15 Degree , 30 Degree , and 60 Degree . Perfect for throwing light long distances or providing a broad swath of light.
The high-quality projection optics contain high-end lenses that provide even illumination and color across the entire beam field for superior results. The fixed beam angles available are 15 Degree , 25 Degree , 35 Degree (wider angles may be added in the future). The zoom projection optics allow for flexibility in all kinds of applications.
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.
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-Color Light Engine
Including a red, green, blue, amber, cyan, and lime LED, the ARRI Spectra six-color light engine translates into a wider color gamut, more accurate colors, and most importantly, higher color rendition across the entire CCT range.
Hues are precisely reproduced and the increased gamut allows for 15% more color possibilities when compared to previous ARRI light engines.
Ultra-High Color Rendering
Orbiter has a larger CCT range of 2,000 to 20,000 K with ultra-high color rendition across all color 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 color beam field with amazing brightness.
Color Sensor Mode
The new Color Sensor Mode in Orbiter will read the ambient color surrounding the fixture and reproduce the color with great accuracy. There are two measurement types: continuous and momentary. Continuous will constantly measure the ambient color and update the light output accordingly. Momentary will only take one measurement of the ambient color with the press of a button. This new color mode is perfect in situations where the light is changing. Orbiter can automatically adjust for color changes without any interaction.
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.
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 color fidelity. With state-of-the-art electronics, Orbiter is able to perform more tasks than previous luminaires.
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.
Using a combination of three dimming techniques, Orbiter's cutting-edge electronics provide smooth dimming down to zero without color changes or jumps.
Orbiter includes a lightweight internal power supply and a 3-pin XLR battery input for 48 V batteries.
All of this technology comes in a weatherproof housing which means Orbiter can be used outdoors in rain, snow, and other inclement weather.
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 Color Modes
LiOS' eight-color modes are available including CCT, HSI, individual color, x/y coordinates, gel, source matching, lighting effects, and the new color sensor mode which measures ambient light and recreates it through Orbiter's output.
Orbiter offers three operational modes to optimize the fixture's performance for different applications. High color rendering mode provides the best color quality possible, high output mode generates the best brightness with slightly lower color rendition, while low noise mode creates a balance for quiet operation with decent output.
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-color 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 colors 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. With all these connectivity interfaces, Orbiter is not only ready for today's state-of-the-art communication but is also prepared for whatever the future might bring.
Full Suite of Sensors
A digital light of the future requires data. Orbiter is aware of the world around it with a variety of sensors that allow for advanced operations, smart automations, and a stream of metadata. All these sensors make for a better user experience and increased control over the fixture. Available data improve workflow also in post-production and service.
Orbiter includes an integrated color sensor for measuring and matching the ambient light.
A 3-axis accelerometer allows for sensing the pan, tilt, and roll of the fixture. This data will provide future meta data for special effects work or optimizing fixture performance.
A magnetometer gives Orbiter's heading based on the direction the fixture is pointing in the real world.
Ambient Light Sensor
An ambient light sensor located on the control panel will automatically dim the brightness of the control panel display based on surrounding light intensity.
Heat sensors located throughout the interior of the Orbiter will keep the LEDs and electronics at exactly the right temperature.
