ARRI continues to broaden their LED line and reaffirm their commitment to accurate color rendering with the introduction of the SkyPanel S60-C LED Softlight. Supported by a steel yoke, the panel surface area measures 25.4 x 11.8" and employs interchangeable thermoplastic diffusers that range from Lite to Heavy to soften the light and wrap its output around your subject. The SkyPort outputs the equivalent of a 2000W tungsten soft light while drawing a maximum of only 450W.

Using technology originally designed for the L7-C Fresnel, the SkyPanel S60-C can be adjusted to output a warm 2800K to icy blue 10,000K light and also uses the full RGB+W color gamut with hue and saturation control for fine adjustments. Full Minusgreen to Full Plusgreen is also possible, so if you're lighting for blue or greenscreen, you can simply dial in your chosen color. This wide degree of control is responsible for a high CRI of 95 and a rating of 90 with the newer TLCI standard. All of these functions as well as 0-100% dimming can be adjusted locally with the SkyPanel's onboard controller or remotely via DMX or a LAN. Besides inputs and outputs appropriate to these functions, the light also has a USB-A port for downloading firmware upgrades from a thumb drive or any PC/Mac.

The SkyPanel S60-C can be used worldwide thanks to its included 90-250 VAC power supply, but it can also use optional 23-36 VDC batteries when mains power is unavailable. Besides the power supply, the light comes with a Junior (1 1/8") pin and a standard diffuser. This version of the light has a manual yoke and comes with an Edison power cord.

Adjustable, Precise Color Rendering

Incorporating features of ARRI's successful L-Series LED Fresnels, the SkyPanel is one of the most versatile soft lights on the market, as well as one of the brightest. Like the L-Series, SkyPanel "C" (Color) versions have adjustable color temperatures between 2800K and 10,000K with accurate color rendition over the entire range. Full plus and minus green correction can be achieved with the simple turn of a knob, and in addition to CCT control, vivid color selection and saturation adjustment is also possible. Applications for this controllability range from quickly adjusting the CCT to set the mood of a scene, to selecting the chroma green output for green screen color keying. Each LED light engine is computer calibrated in order to ensure unit-to-unit and batch-to-batch consistency, as well as accurate color temperatures

True Soft Light Beam Quality

Soft lights are known for their smooth quality of light and even, uniform beam field. SkyPanel's combination of a precise selection of diffusion panels, LED mixing chamber and large surface area allow for the light output to wrap around objects, eliminating sharp shadows and making for an ideal beauty light. The beam field is homogeneous in both color and intensity

Natural Shadow Rendition

Mixing some 2000 calibrated red, green, blue, and white LEDs into one homogeneous beam of soft light, the SkyPanel produces not just impressive light quality, but excellent shadow rendering as well. The soft shadows cut cleanly without exhibiting multiple edges or color fringing

Versatility Built In

While the SkyPanel was designed to be used primarily as a soft light to illuminate people, various built-in features make it extremely adaptable to other uses. The diffuser panels on the front of the lamp head are interchangeable, so going from the Heavy to the Lite diffusion panel can be done in a matter of seconds. With the onboard battery input, SkyPanel can be run off industry-standard batteries. The S60 can be operated at up to 50% of its total power on battery power. The SkyPanel also makes an effective space light outputting a large downward-directed pool of color controllable soft light through an optional silk cylinder

Built to Last

Made in Germany to ARRI standards, the SkyPanel is constructed from resilient materials and assembled by hand. The combination of an aluminum core with fiberglass-reinforced thermoplastics results in a solid fixture that can withstand heavy daily use on busy film sets. The easily-serviced electronics have been designed to last beyond a minimum of 25,000, up to a maximum of 50,000 hours while the LED light engine even allows for recalibration

Highly Controllable

The SkyPanel user interface is designed for ease of use with a wide range of controls available to the user. Three simple knobs adjust the color temperature, green/magenta balance, light intensity and hue and saturation instantly. In addition to the on-board controls, all functions can be remotely adjusted via DMX or LAN network connections

It says that it can be powered by an external battery - is there a specific type of battery compatible with it, else can someone recommend me one they've used successfully with it?
Asked by: Florian
I've never tried to run the S60 off of a battery. I've powered S30's with dual Dionic batteries (which don't last very long) which require a special mounting bracket for the batteries on the back of the unit. I'd be wary of trying to do this with an S60 because they eat so much power. I'd go for an inverter setup if possible with marine batteries.

question

What kind of controller/dimmer is needed/available for these lights?
Asked by: Anonymous
The SkyPanel S60 has a dial on the back to dim it and it is DMX.Most DMX controllers will work with this light. It is very new and there might be some that are better than others specifically. We are waiting for that information from Arri.
