The ARRI LoCaster features an easy to use onboard controller with a choice of six color temperature settings, continious dimming and ON/OFF switch. Weighing only 960 g (2 lbs), it is an ideal companion for mobile applications.

With color temperature settings adjustable from 2,800 K to 6,500 K and a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of > 94, the ARRI Caster LED fixtures adapt easily to an existing lighting installation or to the variable conditions of a location shoot. They also make use of ARRI LED Technology, guaranteeing natural light characteristics, single shadow rendering, consistent light output and absolute color stability.

The LED-based ARRI Caster of Series products, ARRI is excited to present the next advancements in the Caster Series: LoCaster 2 Plus and BroadCaster 2 Plus. Both the LoCaster 2 Plus and BroadCaster 2 Plus have more than 35% increased light output compared with Caster 2, while still maintaining the same form factor, appearance, power draw of 35 W and compatibility with all existing Caster Series power and mounting accessories.

The ARRI Caster Series utilizes an advanced optical design and an LED arrangement which provides an efficient solution for LED lighting at an attractive price level.

With color temperature settings adjustable from 2800K to 6500K and a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of over 94, the ARRI Caster LED fixtures adapt easily to an existing lighting installation or to the variable conditions of a location shoot. Colors appear more vivid and lifelike on digital and film media compared to other fixtures that use single color white or RGB LED configurations.

The Caster Series also makes use of ARRI LED Technology, guaranteeing natural light characteristics, single shadow rendering, consistent light output and absolute color stability. The optical design provides single shadow rendering and adjustments over a range of correlated color temperatures. 

What truly makes these LED units unique is the shadow quality. Casters emulate a single source, which results in a single shadow. Therefore, the Caster Series can be effectively “cut” with a barndoor or flag. Other LED fixtures, with multiple LED “points”, produce multiple shadows and often-times the color variation of the LEDs create chromatic aberrations. The mixing chamber within the LoCaster and BroadCaster combine all of the LEDs together providing a single beam of soft light.
