Say Hello to ARRI Spectra: State-of-the-art, six-colour LED light engine

ARRI is known for creating high-quality lighting products. With the new ARRI Spectra light engine in Orbiter, this commitment is being taken to the next level. 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. Skin tones look amazing and natural. Hues are precisely reproduced and the increased gamut allows for 15% more colours to be created than previous ARRI light engines. Orbiter has a larger CCT range of 2,000 to 20,000 K with ultra-high colour rendition across all colour temperatures. This next generation in colour control will open up new possibilities and produce better colours than ever before.

Sheer Output: Immense brightness with full colour tunability

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-colour tunability with a new six-colour LED mixture. These cutting-edge LEDs have never been used before in a luminaire and the arrangement creates a homogeneous colour-beam field with amazing brightness.
