Orbiter comes with an extended three-year warranty as well as five years for electronic parts and 10 years for spare parts.
ARRI has announced that its new LED fixture Orbiter will soon be available to customers worldwide. Since Orbiter’s product launch in September 2019, many field tests have been conducted and user feedback on Orbiter and its features has been collected.
Using these findings, Orbiter was greenlit into serial production. Starting October 6, the first units are being shipped to customers.
Orbiter is manufactured at the ARRI Lighting factory in Stephanskirchen, Germany. A close partner network of companies from the region was already established to produce the SkyPanel. This network now also serves as an essential component to produce Orbiter.
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.
A new production concept was developed for the assembly and evaluation of the Orbiter, with an extended and comprehensive test setup. In addition to the core element ARRI Spectra light engine, a wide range of accessories is already available with the delivery of the Orbiter.
The ability to easily attach and change a variety of optics by using the Quick Lighting Mount QLM allows Orbiter to transform into different types of lamp heads. The open-face optics produce a high-output, directional beam of light in several different beam angles including 15º, 30º, and 60º.
In addition, the new Lighting Operating System LiOS will be available and already programmed into the Orbiter units. Orbiter includes a lightweight internal power supply and a three-pin XLR battery input for 48V batteries.
Orbiter comes with an extended three-year warranty as well as five years for electronic parts and 10 years for spare parts. It is available in the ARRI silver and blue colours as well as a black version.
