Building on the foundation of the original LoCaster, ARRI's LoCaster 2 Plus LED Panel with Stirrup features 35% greater brightness, adjustable color temperature, light weight, full dimming and the AC and battery options sought after by location shooters. ARRI uses a 8.58 x 3.77 x 2.75", 35W LED array with a prismatic homogenizing lens to produce a 63-degree beam angle that performs like a single source luminaire without the multiple shadows that plague some other fixtures.
The LoCaster 2 Plus offers a substantial amount of control as compared to other lights and adjustments are executed with simple knobs on its back panel. Color temperature is variable from 2800 to 6500K, and you can tweak the full minus and full plus green as well, taking care of most of your filtration preferences without taping a single gel to the unit. Dimming from 0-100% is just as easy using another knob. The LEDs are virtually heat-free, eliminating worries about the comfort of the talent, while the panel's rated 50,000 lamp life makes the LoCaster practically maintenance-free too.
The LoCaster runs on a 100-250 VAC power supply for worldwide use or on a Caster battery pack when mains power is unavailable. The power supply, battery and charger are all purchased separately. The LoCaster 2 Plus comes with a stirrup that acts as a yoke, allows tilting adjustment, and has a built-in holder for the optional battery pack.
ARRI LoCaster 2 Plus LED Panel
This LoCaster 2 Plus LED Panel from ARRI has approximately 35% more light output than its predecessor, while still maintaining the same form factor, appearance, low power draw, and compatibility with all existing Caster Series power and mounting accessories.
The LoCaster 2 Plus features an easy to use onboard controller with color temperature variable from 2800 to 6500K with full plus or minus green correction and continuous dimming from 0-100% ARRI's exclusive LED technology ensures natural light characteristics, single shadow rendering, consistent light output and color stability with a CRI of 94. The LoCaster 2 Plus is powered by an optional multi-voltage AC power supply or DC source.
ARRI Stirrup for LED BroadCaster/LoCaster/Battery
The Arri Stirrup provides a convenient mount for both BroadCaster and LoCaster LED Panels as well as the LoCaster Battery Pack.
The panels, which mount to the stirrup via their 3/8" (9.5 mm) female thread, gain the advantage of swiveling movement and a 5/8" (16mm) receiver in a yoke-like construction for stand mounting.
T-pins are built into the stirrup which snap into channels in the NiMH Battery Pack for quick mounting. The battery is released by pulling the knob on top of it.
