You can set one Orbiter as a Host to control other multiple Client Orbiters. Clients will simply mimic all controlled actions made on the Host Orbiter (same as the Master/Slave mode for SkyPanel and L-Series). DMX and RDM are their communicating language (however, a direct combination of Master/Slave & Host/Client systems is not possible).
Help is just a quick click away. Call out or dismiss additional information at one click of the Help button. LiOS will give you a detailed explanation of the current menu button or parameter choice.
Detailed error information
LiOS takes guesswork out of troubleshooting. If a yellow dot (warning) or a red dot (error) sign is showing, additional detailed information is available at the click of the Help button. The text also provides you with instructions to solve the issue.
Over 240 favorite colors or lighting effects can be stored within Orbiter. These favorites can be selected via an easy to use interface or via DMX.
LiOS 1.2 New Features
ARRI is pleased to announce the release of Version 1.2 of LiOS, the advanced new Lighting Operating System of the Orbiter.
Our aim is to listen to the wishes of our customers and to constantly improve our products and adapt them to current and future requirements. With LiOS 1.2, ARRI provides new features for the Orbiter to make its control and user experience even more simple and straight forward.
DMX/RDM Gateway function
Any Orbiter can now act as a transformer from Input Ethernet based control protocols such as ArtNet and Streaming ACN (sACN) towards output of 5 Pin DMX for daisy chaining of multiple units. RDM Messages are being sent and received bi-directional as well. This eliminates the need for external or third-party devices for control protocol conversion.
With every update, many smaller improvements are also made to create a better user experience and improved performance. The USB-C interface support for the ARRI ALSM service tool has now also been implemented for the Windows operating systems. With LiOS 1.2, several smaller enhancements to the graphical user interface across the entire LiOS system as well as overall system stability improvements have been implemented to make the Orbiter more reliable.
