ARRI Orbiter

ARRI Orbiter


The ultra-bright LED point source with a variety of optics.

All systems in Orbiter are completely new and designed with versatility in mind. Orbiter’s new six-color light engine delivers a wide-color gamut and outstanding color rendition across all color temperatures along with industry-leading, smooth dimming from 100 – 0%. With its changeable optics, Orbiter can transform into many different types of lampheads including open face, dome, and softboxes; projection and other optics in preparation. Orbiter’s state-of-the-art technology and versatile design makes it an optimal lamphead for today and for the future with endless possibilities for updates, configurations, and enhancements.

A Wide Variety of Changeable Optics

Changeable optics is the core innovation in Orbiter. With a wide variety of optics to choose now and in the future Orbiter transforms into the perfect light for your application without sacrificing beam, output, or color quality. The Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) in Orbiter allows for optics with vastly different properties to be connected to the fixture.



State-of-the-art, six-color LED light engine

ARRI is known for creating high-quality lighting products. With the new ARRI Spectra light engine in Orbiter, this commitment is being taken to the next level. Including a red, green, blue, amber, cyan, and lime LED, the ARRI Spectra six-color light engine translates into a wider color gamut, more accurate colors, and most importantly, higher color rendition across the entire CCT range. Skin tones look amazing and natural. Hues are precisely reproduced and the increased gamut allows for 15% more colors to be created than previous ARRI light engines. Orbiter has a larger CCT range of 2,000 to 20,000 K with ultra-high color rendition across all color temperatures. This next generation in color control will open up new possibilities and produce better colors than ever before.



Sheer Output

Immense brightness with full color tunability

Orbiter is an extremely bright and powerful, directional LED fixture with an output similar to that of the corresponding

HMI systems. Orbiter’s high, yet tunable, ARRI Spectra light engine output can create hard shadows with defined edges. This revolutionary light engine is 76 times smaller than the L10’s light engine but produces the same power draw and greater output. A dense arrangement of over 200 LEDs Orbiter a point source-like aperture while maintaining full-color tunability with a new six-color LED mixture. These cutting-edge LEDs have never been used before in a luminaire and the arrangement creates a homogeneous color-beam field with amazing brightness.
