ARRI SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel
Add a powerful, all-weather LED panel to your production with the SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel from ARRI. Based on the S60 SkyPanel, this modular LED panel provides hard and soft lighting options with new dimming, color science, and output quality that enhances medium to long throws with up to 20x greater output than other soft lights. The modular design supports native soft light using the included dome and hard light using open-face lighting and the optional HyPer Optic lens, and multiple panels can be used together to work as a single fixture in 2x1 (X21), 2x2 (X22), and 2x3 (X23) configurations.

This 2x1 panel measures 29.1 x 13.3" and features a full-spectrum RGBACL color engine, 1500-20,000K CCT range, accurate color rendition, numerous wired and wireless control options, and it sports an IP66 rating for performance in all weather conditions. It also features a built-in power supply unit for portability, and power can be daisy-chained with other SkyPanel X units to create expanded lighting grids. The SkyPanel X is also compatible with all S60 accessories using an optional adapter.

All-Weather Design
The SkyPanel X is your all-weather lighting solution. Engineered and IP66 certified for resilience against rain, storms, and cold water pressure washers, these lights embody innovation, reliability, and durability.
Soft Light
  • High-lumen output
  • Flicker-free low-end dimming from 100 to 0% for close-ups
  • Adaptable for traditional SkyPanel techniques and includes the new X21 Dome
  • Create 8-pixel patterns for effects
  • Efficient and simplified workflow for quick and easy setup
Hard Light
  • The light outputs an optimal rounded beam with maximum punch and quality
  • Create a long-throw fixture with the optional high-performance SkyPanel X HyPer Optic
  • Higher output than a 2.5kW open-face HMI lamp when used in the X23 configuration
  • Unique pixel looks
  • Ideal on a cherry picker, through windows, or bounced
Modular Experience
  • Upgrade your lighting setup easily with modular SkyPanel X units
  • Get a reliable power supply for all lights via a single daisy-chained power cable
  • Benefit from toolless frames with a quick-lock system
  • Maximum control capabilities in only one DMX profile
Control Options
Explore the multiple control options for SkyPanel X, including the robust all-weather control panel, ARRI's new LiCo App for Bluetooth control, LumenRadio's wireless integration, DMX-512A, RDM, Art-Net 4, sACN, LAN IP, CRMX Classic, CRMX2, W-DMX G3 / G4 / G4S / G5, BLE, and Native Bluetooth 5.0.
Software
With LiOS3, many new software features away, such as one single DMX profile when used in X22 or X23 configurations, new DMX presets, and new ARRI ALEXA modes.
SkyPanel X Digital Twin
ARRI's SkyPanel X digital twin represents the forefront of digital innovation, offering precise virtual lighting simulations. ARRI's digital twin technology transforms cinematic lighting workflows from preproduction to postproduction.

Featuring 3D models, authentic characteristics, and intuitive interfaces, it equips filmmakers with advanced tools. Visualize, manage, and collaborate effortlessly, boosting efficiency, consistency, and creativity in film production.

Applications
The X21 can be used with soft light close to the talent in low-end, flicker-free dimming conditions while adjusting the X21's color science to the ALEV 3 and ALEV 4 sensors of ARRI ALEXA cameras with the ARRI ALEXA modes.
The SkyPanel X when paired with the HyPer Optic delivers a punchy light source, ideal through windows with diffusion. It offers an alternative to traditional point-source lights since you get the punch and rounded beam but with all the advantages of LED lights.
ARRI X21 HyPer Optic

Create a long throw fixture with the high-performance X21 HyPer Optic from ARRI. This hot-swappable component for SkyPanel X can transform the fixture into a native hard-light luminaire with a single rounded beam. When paired with the HyPer Optic, the SkyPanel X delivers a punchy light source that offers an alternative to traditional point-source lights since you get the punch and a rounded beam but with all the advantages of LED lights.

One Single Rounded Beam
Specifically optimized for direct long throws and powerful bouncing effects from a distance, the HyPer Optic delivers an impressive output and a refined light distribution. Its unique design allows the X21 to work as a native hard light, giving you a circular beam through a rectangular fixture.
Easy-to-Use, Widely Compatible
This multi-lens accessory can be quickly mounted and dismounted from the X21 lamphead's front. It also enables the placement of diffusion frames right after the individual lenses, such as the Beam Enhancer filter specifically made for SkyPanel X or the existing legacy diffusers of the Classic SkyPanel line.
Further Control
For a snoot option and more accurate control, the HyPer Optic can be combined with the DoPchoice SnapBox-SNOOT for X21 and the DoPchoice SNAPGRID 30° for X21.
General Features
  • Hot-swappable multi-lens
  • Emulation of hard, point-source lights
  • For applications where you need a very punchy light
  • Amplified, high lux output
  • 72 individual lenses collimated into one single beam
  • Includes eyelet for safety wire and easy handling
ARRI All-Weather Control Panel

Designed for maximum flexibility, the All-Weather Control Panel from ARRI is a robust IP66-rated device that allows you to adjust the functions of the SkyPanel X. The control panel has an onboard screen, quick navigation buttons, and can be separated from the fixture and used remotely via an optional 16.4' or 49.2' cable. This is a great tool for centralized control, allowing you to easily change settings and create presets on the fly.

General Features
This 6.1 x 4.0 x 1.3" control panel works as an onboard display thanks to X21's dedicated bay. It is also a handy remote device when the lamphead is reachable via its LEMO connector.
Widely Compatible
The control panel runs on ARRI's LiOS proprietary software and is compatible with other ARRI fixtures such as the Orbiter.
ARRI X21 Manual Yoke with Spigot

The X21 Manual Yoke with Spigot from ARRI is designed for the SkyPanel X21 and allows for better tilting when using softboxes. A convenient quick-lock system is featured for swift removal. The X21 Manual Yoke has a 1 1/8" spigot and includes an angle indicator near its side level as well as a blue cord for holding cables.

A power supply is not included with the ARRI SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel (BH #ARSPX21) as this is the base configuration, meaning it only includes the light and the SkyPanel X21 Dome. We do have other configurations that we carry which do included the power cable, such as the ARRI SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel (All-Weather Control Panel Kit), BH #ARSPX21K (B&H Kit).
