Durable Housing & Cross Cooling System

Pressure die cast and extruded aluminum components reduced the overall weight of the True Blue fixtures, without any sacrifice in quality or durability. It also features greater resistance to corrosion.

A honeycomb-style safety mesh covers the Fresnel lens for flying your light on stage or set. This laser cut hexagonal safety mesh is made from stainless steel. Its narrow mesh maximizes light transmissio yet it is tough enough for the rigors of production locations. 

The patent pending cross cooling system reduces both lamp housing temperature and lens temperature, enabling the lampheads to be operated at an a 90° tilt angle. Special air channels built into the aluminum extrusion direct a constant stream of air around the Fresnel lens and the lamphead, even if the light points directly up or down.

Redesigned Stirrup and Tilt Lock

A redesigned stirrup and improved tilt lock add functionality to the True Blue light fixtures.

To make balancing the lamphead even easier, the sliding stirrup mounting can be adjusted to counterbalance these front-mounted accessories. The new extruded aluminium stirrup is stronger, lighter and less bulky, but still permits full xture rotation. Its soft contour also makes the lamphead more comfortable to carry.

Simply slide ARRI's innovative stirrup bracket to quickly and easily adjust the fixture's centre of gravity.

The Tilt Lock design creates a positive lock so there's no slippage when using heavy accessories. A stainless steel friction disc functions like a disc brake allowing the lamphead to be completely locked off with a minimum of force.

Barndoors with Safety Catch

Improved barndoors are stronger and less susceptible to bending, with a new hinge design that maintains constant, easily-adjusted tension.

Although the top latch holds accessories securely at any tilt angle, both your Studio and Location lampheads feature a second safety catch mounted on the bottom accessory bracket. This eliminates the need for a barndoor safety bond without restricting the rotation.

The barndoors themselves are manufactured with a special alloy for a high strength-to-weight ratio. The leaves on ARRI's new barndoor design withstand bending and deforming far better than traditional barndoors. In addition, leaves are now easily tightened to avoid slipping and the larger leaf design provides better control and sharper cutoff.

The same features are incorporated in a new optional 8-leaf barndoor.

Adjustable Accessory Brackets

Location crews need space in the accessory bracket for up to four scrims, while studio crews suffer from the light leak this creates. Two-position True Blue accessory brackets adjust in or out for (2) or (4) scrims. By reducing the space between the scrims and the lens, unwanted reflected and spill light is minimized.

Improved Weather Protection

True Blue xtures are manufactured to the IP23 standard and are suitable for indoor use or outdoor use providing a degree of protection against falling rain (up to a 60 ̊ angle from vertical).
