A new focus for LED lighting

ARRI’s tungsten Fresnel lights are workhorses of the industry and relied upon by lighting designers the world over. By combining the cool-burning, energy-efficient advantages of LED illumination with the controllable versatility of traditional Fresnel fixtures, ARRI has taken the best of both worlds and created a truly revolutionary lamphead. The groundbreaking technology that has made this possible represents a milestone in the incorporation of LED technology into the film industry.

In addition to a high quality light field, the new, focusable LED fixtures feature a unique light engine with broad spectral distribution that provides the same vivid and lifelike color rendition as conventional tungsten sources. A further advantage is that existing front-end accessories can be used, making it far more economical for facilities to add the new fixtures to their inventories.
