SkyPanel S360 - Tilt Front Right - Hang

SkyPanel S360-C


The SkyPanel Family. Different sizes for different applications.

The ARRI SkyPanel has always been known for its tremendous output and large light aperture. The S360-C completes ARRI’s LED soft light range with the largest and brightest SkyPanel to date. Not only is the S360-C powerful, but it is packed full of exciting features, making it one of the most versatile LED fixtures on the market. Latest feature available with Firmware 4.4 include DMX Presets, adding value to the existing features such as Full Color Control, Lighting Effects on a huge aperture, Wireless DMX Built In, a unique Carbon Fiber Yoke, and much more. The S360-C is truly a beast of a light.

CRMX2: More universes, automatic linking

The wireless connectivity in the S360-C just got future-proof. Choose between a classic LumenRadio CRMX pairing, or the improved CRMX2 protocol: a powerful and easy way to link automatically your S360-C units to a specific transmitter via a specific linking key. Fast, easy, and reliable.

Enormous Aperture

Soft lights are all about size, the larger the aperture the better. With the S360-C, size has not been compromised. The surface area of the S360-C is over 5.8 times larger than the S60 and produces beautiful soft light in a wide 105º beam angle. The light will wrap around large objects and throw much farther than the smaller SkyPanels.

Lumens, Lumens, and more Lumens

At over 120,000 lumens, the S360-C is one of the brightest LED soft lights on the market. Compared to the S60-C, the S360-C is more than four times brighter and maintains excellent color quality and tuneability. Consuming only 1500 watts, the S360-C is twice as bright as a 4,000-watt tungsten soft light and over three times as bright as a 12,000-watt tungsten space light. Achieving an energy efficacy of over 80 lumens per watt, the S360-C is also one of the most eco-friendly LED soft lights available while also being one of the brightest.

Wireless DMX, Built In

SkyPanel has always had a multitude of ways to control the light output; DMX, RDM, Art-Net, sACN, 5-Pin XLR, and Ethernet. The S360-C adds another important communication method, and this one does not involve any wires: Wireless DMX by LumenRadio. Built into every S360-C, the CMRX chip allows for DMX and RDM communication without the hassle of cables and distribution equipment. Simply link a compatible LumenRadio transmitter to the S360-C and you’re good to go. Using the 5-Pin DMX output on the S360-C also allows for daisy chaining other non-wireless SkyPanels to the DMX network.

Full Color Tuneability

As with all ARRI LED lampheads, the S360-C is fully tuneable. Easily adjust the CCT from 2800 K to 10,000 K with plus/minusgreen control and access the full color gamut with hue and saturation, RGBW mixing, digital gels, source matching, or CIE x, y coordinates. Achieving over 85% of the colors within the Rec 2020 color space, it is now easy to create the look and color you want right on set.

Lighting Effects on a Grand Scale

In SkyPanel Firmware 3.0 and greater, powerful lighting effects were introduced into the SkyPanel family. And with the introduction of the S360-C, these effects are even more impressive. Over the large aperture of the S360-C, the dynamic light effects appear more dramatic and powerful. The fire effect covers a huge area, the cop car effect can blast down a street, and the paparazzi effect looks like an entire press corps snapping photographs. With the turn of a few knobs, amazing and realistic effects are at the crew’s fingertips.

Swappable Panels

SkyPanel is one of the only LED soft lights to allow for the changing of diffusion panels in front of the LEDs. This feature is also offered with the S360-C. The diffusion panels are exchangeable and come in Lite, Standard, Heavy, and Intensifier. The Intensifier increases S360’s brightness by 50%, allowing the light to be thrown even farther

Carbon Fiber Yoke

The S360-C comes standard with a state-of-the-art carbon fiber yoke. This yoke reduces the overall weight of the lamp head by several kilograms and provides a safe and robust solution. Made with a unique carbon fiber weave and metal reinforced fittings, the S360-C yoke offers a weight reduction of over 50% compared to a typical steel yoke and can support 10 times the weight of the fixture.

A Place for Your Remote

No detail is too small or unimportant in the design of a SkyPanel. The S360-C housing features a SkyPanel Remote docking port. Able to control the S360-C via a USB cable, the SkyPanel Remote can be attached to the docking port on the back of the fixture using the remote’s rear magnet. The docking port provides a space for the remote to rest or, if the fixture is upside-down, a place for an extra set of controls closer to arm’s reach.

  • With the latest Firmware version FW4.2, SkyPanel supports six color modes: CCT (correlated color temperature), RGBW (individual channels control), HSI (hue saturation intensity), x,y Coordinates, Source Matching and Gel Selection. 
    Furthermore SkyPanel has a wide range of lighting effects. With SkyPanel Lighting Effects users can choose and manipulate 17 effects without the need for a lighting console or hours of programming. Each effect has several parameters that allow for customization of the effect to fit your needs. 

  • The S360 has built-in wireless CRMX. The latest SkyPanel Firmware V4.4 includes an update to support Lumen Radio’s new CRMX2 protocol. Please keep in mind that after updating a SkyPanel, an 8-digit “linking key” will be required in order to connect with a CRMX transmitter. More information about CRMX2 can be found here.  The S30, S60, S120, and S360 have +5V USB ports that can provide power to external wireless control devices.

  • The aim of calibration is to have uniformed performance between different fixtures. The fixtures are built from different LED chips, they are not all exactly the same in color or output behavior. By calibrating, the LED chips are driven slightly different to ensure uniform color and output performances within all fixtures.

  • ANSI/ESTA E1.54 standard color space is used as calibration standard. It is a PLASA standard for color communication in entertainment lighting. This standard specifies a standardized color space, and defines the locations of the RGB primaries for the purpose of facilitating the communications between lighting controllers and color changing luminaires.

  • Material recorded in Rec 709 (short for ITU-Recommendation BT.709) has a display specific encoding or a, in other words, "what you see is what you get" characteristic. The purpose of a display specific encoding is to immediately provide a visually correct representation of the camera material, when it is screened on a certain display device. This is achieved by mapping the actual contrast range of the scene into the contrast range that a display device can reproduce. Examples of display specific encodings are Rec 709 for HDTV screens or DCI P3 for digital cinema projectors. On the downside, a display specific encoding puts some limits on the options for a colorist.

  • Rec 2020 is a wider color space than Rec 709, which is the current industry standard for HD. Rec 2020 promises more brilliant images, though only new display technology is able to show these. Traditional Rec 709 displays (like TVs or ordinary computer displays) can’t display Rec 2020.
    While Rec 709 (short for Recommendation ITU-R BT.709) is the encoding color space for HDTV, Rec 2020 is the encoding color space for UHD. The primary colors lie on the spectral locus and it is thus possible to have more saturated colors in images. (It does not mean, however, that all colors look more saturated. When properly converted, a Rec 709 image will look exactly the same when displayed on a Rec 2020 display.)
    Rec 2020 is an encoding standard. A TV or display may not support the full gamut. Nevertheless, it will correctly display the colors within its physical gamut. To get the “Premium” logo of the UHD Alliance, for example, a TV needs to support a minimum of 90% of the P3 gamut.
