The ARRI L2.0009611 SkyBender for the S60 SkyPanel produces a uniform intensity light field over the length of any surface, transforming the beam by simply sliding into the front of the fixture. This is the perfect accessory for lighting a green screen, creating color wall washes, lighting a translight or backdrop, or evenly lighting a cyclorama.
The SkyPanel S60 is the mid-range model of the SkyPanel, one of the most versatile and brightest soft lights on the market! Featuring a light aperture of 645 x 300 mm and accommodating the vast majority of applications, the S60 is available in fully color tuneable and remote phosphor versions. Unlike other tuneable fixtures, SkyPanel makes no sacrifice when it comes to light output. SkyPanel puts out a tremendous amount of light, in a soft and uniform beam field. Brighter than a 2 kW tungsten soft light or a 6 kW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S60 has more than enough light for most applications. In some cases the fixture can even compete with natural sunlight; at the same time, it is able to perform beautifully at lower light levels.
SkyPanel is a compact, ultra-bright and high-quality LED soft light that sets a new standard for the industry. With a design focused on form, color, beam field and output, SkyPanel represents the culmination of more than a decade of research and development of LED technology at ARRI. SkyPanel perfectly mixes some 2,000 calibrated red, green, blue and white LEDs into one homogeneous beam of soft light. In addition to providing excellent light, the SkyPanel also provides excellent shadows. The shadows are soft in nature and do not exhibit multiple edges or strange colors, making SkyPanel one of the best LED soft lights for shadow rendition on the market.
Incorporating features of ARRI’s successful L-Series LED Fresnels, 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 are fully tuneable; correlated color temperature is adjustable between 2,800 K and 10,000 K, with excellent 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. The remote phosphor versions of SkyPanel are roughly 10% brighter than the color versions and have a lower price point.
