Orbiter Projection Optics are truly second to none, outperforming all competitor projection optics and dedicated profile fixtures. And while the Orbiter Docking Ring allows third-party optics that customers may already own to be used on the Orbiter, such combinations can only ever be as good as those third-party optics. Compared to the quality of ARRI’s own optics, this will inevitably mean a compromise in quality. If you want outstanding optical performance in every aspect, with no brown/blue shadow or edge at any focus, almost no chromatic aberration, and simultaneous sharpness of any shutter blades at any angle, then the Orbiter Projection Optics should be your first choice.
Mounting & Accessories
Orbiter’s unique Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) system allows the Projection Optics to be mounted safely and quickly but still enabling a 90° rotation. The LiOS2 update ensures an automatic recognition of this new optic and its latest feature, Optics Auto Adjust, offers 100% color stability with any focus and any optic. The optic’s cooling fan can be controlled via Orbiter’s Light Control setting through the Control Panel. Every Projection Optic is shipped with the dedicated Goboholder.
Which accessories can be attached to the Orbiter Projection optics?
A standard B-size metal or glass gobo can be added. The genuine ARRI gobo holder is made to keep the gobo securely in place and the produced gobo pattern is clearly visible. A gobo holder is shipped with every Orbiter Projection Optic. Any focus adjustment between gobo and shutter is barely necessary; focus adjustment between gobo and open gate is not necessary at all. Additional ARRI accessories like a snoot or color filter frames can be added in front enabling fine tuning when needed.
