Power, anywhere

Orbiter includes a lightweight internal power supply and a 3-pin XLR battery input for 48 V ⎓ batteries. Use batteries to complete the mobile Orbiter system, and never be without power again.



Fully protected

Orbiter’s housing is weatherproof. To ensure no defects, Orbiter’s ports (such as power or XLR (for DMX)) require additional protection. The rain cover guarantees an IP24 rating and is mandatory when the Orbiter is tilted at a horizontal angle or facing downward, and recommended from 0° to 75° upwards. Orbiter without the rain cover is rated IP20.

Orbiter Rain Cover

The cover fits perfectly onto the back of the Orbiter and is secured in place by two straps. It is designed to allow the use of all existing interfaces. Discover the Orbiter rain cover.

LiOS - powerful software

Orbiter's system takes advantage of more than five years of software development for the SkyPanel.

Dicover all LiOS features

Once again ARRI has given us another powerful light to add to our tool bag. The Orbiter will replace several tools. 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.
