The ARRI L7-C Color LED Fresnel is part of is at the vanguard of a new generation of lighting equipment that can be seamlessly integrated into the studio or onto the set without sacrificing features or performance.

The key characteristic of any Fresnel is flood to spot capability and the L7-C meets and exceeds expectations with an impressive beam angle of 15-50°. There's simply no learning curve or accommodation to be made when swapping out L7s fixture for fixture with standard Fresnels. In fact, you're not going to be moving them around or juggling scrims in high places thanks to the 100 - 0% on-board dimming.

The L7-C is a "fully tune-able" white light source, too, allowing you to match existing fixtures from a warm 2,700K to ice-blue 10,000K. The on-board controller allows manual intensity control as well as color temperature and +/- green. Specific color shades and skin tones can be matched through the full gamut color mixing feature. All of the functions can be controlled via DMX, an ideal feature for broadcast studios. The hybrid cooling system allows for cooling both actively (with a fan) or passively (without a fan) for times when the set needs to be dead quiet. While inclement weather might annoy the talent it won't kill your light since L7-C has an IP54 rating making it impervious to falling rain and splashing water.

The L7-C LED source produces the equivalent of a 750W tungsten light while drawing only 220W for a savings of a whopping 75% over similar output tungsten lights. And low heat means lower AC bills in the studio. You can actually run 9 L7s off of a 20A, 120 VAC outlet as opposed to two 1,000W or three 650W standard fixtures. When it comes to performance and features, the L7-C might just be the ideal light source.

Familiar But Revolutionary
Quality of light begins with the field. Smooth intensity, uniform color, even illumination: all are traits shared by the L-Series and conventional ARRI Fresnels. And, as Fresnel fixtures are already workhorses of the lighting industry, designers and technicians now have nothing new to learn in order to use LED technology
Focusability
A key element of the versatility of traditional Fresnels is the ability to spot and flood the beam as needed. Whether it's a flood field for a pullback shot or a tight spot for a bright highlight, the continuous focusability of the L-Series performs lives up to your expectations. And, unlike traditional Fresnels, which have significant light waste in spot focus, the efficient L-Series optical system maintains the same field lumens in all focus positions.
Versatile, Controllable Beam
Whether shaping the beam to isolate talent and set elements or cutting the field to eliminate spill light, controllability is crucial to lighting. L-Series Fresnels provide the same ability to cut and shape with barndoors and flags that we have come to expect from conventional Fresnels.
Even Light Field
Clear, defined shadows have traditionally have only been a trait of single source tungsten and daylight fixtures. ARRI L-Series Fresnels provide the same single shadow properties designers expect, delivering natural results.
Color: Vibrant, Full-spectrum Lighting
With the L7-C, fully tune-able white light can be adjusted for different skin tones, camera sensors and mixed-light environments, while specific color shades can be matched through full gamut color mixing. Unlike other LED fixtures, this level of color control does not involve compromising the quality of the light field: the L-Series is unique in combining uniform light and single shadow rendition with absolute control of color attributes.
Hybrid Cooling
Allows for cooling both passively (without a fan) and actively (with a fan). This unit is larger and heavier than the Active version but can run completely silently if needed
Weather Protection
One of the most significant accomplishments in terms of the L7's robustness is the IP54 rating for weather resistance. The entire fixture is protected from falling rain and splashing water, at any angle, while the internal electronics, optics and LEDs are protected from dust, dirt and humidity.
Focus Knobs
True Blue-style focus knobs provide the precise adjustment and rapid flood-to-spot that users enjoy from manual, mechanical control. Knobs on both sides of the fixture ensure easy access from all positions, eliminating the need for awkward reaching around the fixture. Turning the knobs is neither tedious nor time-consuming; full flood-to-spot can be achieved in only three turns.
Sliding Stirrups
The ARRI sliding stirrup design enables precise adjustment of the fixture's center of gravity, to compensate for front-end accessories. It also creates the option of pulling the fixture back and reducing its hanging height.
Yoke
With an extremely slim profile, the extruded aluminum yoke provides high strength without added weight. An optional pole-operated yoke allows full operation of pan, tilt and focus from the floor and is therefore a popular choice for many studios.
Tilt Lock
The high strength tilt lock provides extremely secure locking, eliminating movement and slippage and ensuring that the fixtures will stay where you put them.
DMX Control
For broadcast studios, remote fixture control is of paramount importance, and all functions of the L7 are controllable through DMX. The L7 is also fully RDM compatible, providing bi-directional feedback and reporting of parameters including system status, hours on the light engine, calibration data from the internal color sensor and current DMX address (with the ability to remotely assign and address all fixtures in a DMX network).
On-board Control
The on-board controller has manual intensity adjustment and additional controls for color temperature and plus/minus green, which can be switched to manipulate hue and saturation at the touch of a button.
Energy Savings
There is much discussion about the "green" credentials of LEDs in the market, but perhaps the most compelling aspect in this regard is the associated cost savings. L-Series fixtures reduce electricity usage by 75% and their LED light engines last 200 times longer than normal bulbs, when compared to conventional tungsten Fresnels. These and other cost-saving attributes will combine to affect a rapid return on your investment.
Location Applications
Lighting teams working on location will love the versatility they can achieve in small to medium-size packages. Nine ARRI L7 Fresnels can be run off a single 20A, 120 VAC outlet, as opposed to only two 1000W or three 650W tungsten Fresnels.
Upgradeable Technology
The L7 is an expansible platform designed to adapt with the latest enhancements in LED chip performance. The light engine is fully upgradeable, ensuring that the fixtures can take advantage of technology advances as and when they happen. The firmware is also upgradeable through the USB port on the rear of each unit, accommodating future control protocols such as ACN and incorporating other system enhancements that may become available in due course. In addition, future optic accessories will bring new levels of functionality to the platform, further expanding the L-Series versatility.

        Comments about Arri L7-C Color LED Fresnel with Hybrid Cooling (Stand Mount):

        I've been dreaming of this light since it came out. It works as advertised and changing the color balance is so easy. I use it mostly to wash a background in various bright colors but I also use the directional nature of the light for certain situations. I don't work in Hollywood or on a big production so I had to learn a few things the hard way.
        1st the light comes with a gigantic metal post that will not mesh up with regular light stands. You have to buy a stand with a female receiver in the 1 1/8" size.
        All of my other lights have the female part on the light and the male part on the stand. So after buying a proper stand for this light, the light and stand weigh a ton. I'm guessing 70-90 pounds.
        Another shock for me is how directional the light is. I've been shooting up to this point with fluorescent lights that are mounted in a beauty type dish. They create a very soft flattering light on people. This light is harsher with sharp shadows even when it's at it's widest beam angle. When used with fill lights it all looks great but I rarely use this as the main light. It's always shining color on something or providing a focused light where I need it.
        This light has the heat sink fins but there is also a fan that I can hear kick on when the light is turned up over about 80%. I only hear it if I'm right next to the light with my head 1-2 foot away and I never pick it up in audio.
        I expect this light will last me a lifetime.

            Comments about Arri L7-C Color LED Fresnel with Hybrid Cooling (Stand Mount):

            Fantastic lights and act very similar to their fresnel counterparts. Output is around that of a 700 watt fresnel. Haven't had it long enough to see how durable they are but they look like they can take a beating. Being able to dim and adjust color temp is such a nice luxury to have.

            I would love for them to get the weight down or release the active cooling units.

            Has anyone found a good travel case for them to fit in?

              We use these lights on location for everything from interviews to commercial work. Very versitile light with decent power (feels close to a 400 HMI). Very little heat and flicker free. The only downside, they are quite heavy but worth it for what they do.

                I fell in love with this light while working on a web series, which means low budget, small crew, tight places. This light could do it all, and was used 90% of the time. The low amp draw with good output along with the color changing (both Color Temperature, and also "party colors") was perfect. Can't wait to use it for everything.

                        I purchased this light not to replace but to supplement the flash I work with now. I'd been contemplating starting an HMI collection but the relative high globe replacement costs and electricity consumption kept me away. Whilst I didn't expect the output to match the 1.2k HMI I was pleasantly surprised by the output. But the most impressive feature is the level of control built in to the unit. No messing around with ND grids or CC filters speeds up the workflow enormously.
                        I usually shoot medium format digital at 50 ISO so I'm under no illusions that these lights with their present output can replace flash with the work I do now. But it is an exciting entry into continuous light sources for me. Another string in the bow.
                        The predicted ability to upgrade the "Light Engine" (Arri's term for the LED array) to more powerful units in the future is another unique selling point.
