ARRI continues to enlarge their LED line with the introduction of the massive SkyPanel S360-C LED Softlight. Supported by a weight-reducing carbon fiber yoke, the panel surface area measures 34.4 x 50.4". It employs interchangeable thermoplastic diffusers that range from Lite to Heavy to soften the light and wrap its output around your subject. There's also an Intensifier that boosts the output for long-throw use. A Standard medium diffuser is included with the light. The SkyPanel outputs the approximate equivalent of an 8000W tungsten soft light while drawing a maximum of only 1500W.
Using technology originally designed for the L7-C Fresnel, the SkyPanel S360-C is fully color tunable, allowing output of warm 2800K to icy blue 10,000K light, and it also uses the full RGB+W color gamut with hue and saturation control for fine adjustments. Plus and minus 1/8 green-magenta adjustment is also possible, so if you're lighting for blue or green screen, you can simply dial in your chosen color. This wide degree of control is responsible for a very high CRI of 95 and a TLCI rating of 90. All of these functions, as well as 0-100% dimming, can be adjusted locally with the SkyPanel's onboard controller, with an optional wired remote, standard DMX, or wireless DMX and RDM via onboard LumenRadio. Besides inputs and outputs appropriate to these functions, the light also has USB-A and Ethernet connections for DMX setup, fixture status and control, and firmware upgrades from a flash drive, Windows or Mac.
The SkyPanel S360-C can be used worldwide, thanks to its included 100-240 VAC power supply. Besides the power supply, the light comes with a Junior (1-1/8") pin and an intensifier. This version of the light has a manual carbon fiber yoke and comes with an Edison power cord.
