Hands-on With the ARRI Orbiter LED Light

In this video, I take a deep dive into the features and performance of the ARRI Orbiter LED Light. Key features include the fixture’s incredibly bright output, remarkable versatility (thanks to its changeable optics), 2,000K to 20,000K CCT range, fast processor (4x faster than the SkyPanel), expanded connectivity, integrated array of sensors, weatherproof housing, smooth dimming, and more.

The Orbiter also benefits from a “future-proof” design philosophy, featuring a LEMO expansion port for yet-to-be-developed accessories, and an upgradeable LiOS control software with powerful features that will evolve with production requirements. The ability to throw light long distances with open face optics, while at the same time being able to serve as a soft light, makes the Orbiter an ideal directional light fixture for a variety of applications. The software features and connectivity also make Orbiter the ultimate companion for dynamic lighting setups. Watch my video to learn all about the Orbiter, along with sample lighting setups I was able to achieve with it.

While this article is focused on the advancements in ARRI lighting technology, one can draw parallels from ARRI’s camera and Professional Camera Accessories (PCA) line to understand the design philosophy and evolution of the greater lighting ecosystem. No other brand has such tight integration between camera, lens, and mechanical or electronic accessories. There are plenty of examples to draw from, but innovations like incorporated wireless focus motor receivers and wireless video transmission in the ALEXA SXT-W, the interconnectivity of the entire LBUS range of motors and focus tools, and wireless range extension for various families of products with the ERM-2400 all showcase ARRI’s unified design philosophy.
