“I had the chance to check out Orbiter on my set and my crew was amazed at how easy it was to assemble. It really is an amazing fixture. It's more than just a lighting fixture, It’s a light engine! ARRI has redefined what a lighting fixture should and can do. Having a lighting fixture that can do more than one job is the direction in which set lighting is going. You have a lighting engine that is smart and gives you countless possibilities to do your craft.”

Rafael Sanchez, Gaffer, US

“Once again ARRI has given us another powerful light to add to our tool bag. The Orbiter will replace several tools I am currently using and I cannot wait to get one on set and see what it can really do. The Orbiter’s real innovation is in the software. The many different modes and especially the x/y mode make this an extremely useful light.“

Andy Stein, Gaffer & Rental House Owner, Germany

“After testing the Orbiter with almost every attachment, I’m sure that this fixture will change my way of shooting. Its new Quick Lighting Mount saves an enormous amount of time making the lamphead’s versatility even more valuable. And because of ARRI´s top-quality construction, Orbiter will last for a long time. In combination with the SkyPanel family, the Orbiter will become a new workhorse for me.“

Vika Pobeda, Fashion Photographer, US

“Orbiter makes it so easy to change colors. It offers so much variety! Creative use of color is what's trendy right now, and clients want the image to be more energetic, more colorful, more powerful. With Orbiter, I’ll be able to create brighter, more intense images.“

Cory Geryak, DoP, US

“Orbiter’s optical system and color versatility are a groundbreaking combination. The color science renders natural looking skin tones in Tungsten or Daylight, along with an endless array of variable colors. The optical system gives me the choice of a focusable direct beam, indirect bounce source or diffused lighting from the same fixture. Orbiter provides fast, efficient lighting options in an industry where every second counts.”

Regine Krämer, ARRI, Team Manager Light Sources & Light Laboratory, Germany

“For Orbiter, with its 6-color light engine, we completely revised the colorimetry and calibration while incorporating many improvements. Orbiter masters the wide range of color modes available in SkyPanel, however, Orbiter features 6 colors and, therefore, can execute even better color rendering, even at extremely low color temperatures. We also gave Orbiter extended calibration data, which additionally prepares it for completely new future features.”

Julia Swain, DoP, US

“I love the fact that changing Orbiter’s field of light, from soft to hard shadows, is so easy. The light in general is a very versatile tool. I do mostly feature narrative work, but also commercials and music videos. The Orbiter will make a great addition to the lights I lean on in a typical lighting package.”

Brandon Stirling Baker, Lighting Director, Boston Ballet, US

“The new ARRI Orbiter represents an exciting new chapter for my work as a lighting designer in theater, opera, and dance. The ARRI SkyPanel S60 and S360 have been essential tools for so much of my work internationally. The quality of light from both the SkyPanel and Orbiter is outstanding and provides the gorgeous color and incredible intensity that directly matches the larger-than-life world we live in today.”

Takeshi Nakasu, Lighting Director, Japan

“Orbiter will be a breakthrough in the current, stagnant LED light line-up. Large output, reliability, and versatility all in one fixture. I’m excited to use the Orbiter and its various optics.”

Chelsea Bo, Director, US

“As a director, reducing the set-up time between shots is very important to me because it allows more time for shooting. That’s what was great about working with ARRI’s new light – Orbiter. The new features made it an all-around more efficient tool. I noticed that as the crew became more comfortable using it, the turnaround time from shot to shot was reduced. Instead of switching lights across the room for new coverage, all they had to do was switch optics. Time is so valuable on set and for me it was amazing what we were able to accomplish with Orbiter.”
Note: Chelsea had the chance to work with Orbiter during the video shoot for the Orbiter features videos, assigned by ARRI.
