Equipment for sale in the ARRI Approved CPO program is rigorously inspected and technically refurbished with the utmost care. During the inspection process, cameras, lenses, luminaires, and other products are tested, any mechanical defects are repaired, electronic components are updated, and worn parts are replaced if necessary. All products receive the latest software version and a final function test. Only then are they released for sale by ARRI. All ARRI CPO products come directly from the manufacturer and with warranty.
