SkyPanel X - Reach beyond the Sky

Introduced as a modular system and configurable into different sizes (X21, X22, X23), SkyPanel X offers native soft and hard light technology, setting a new bar not only in terms of dimming and color science, but also in light output and beam quality for medium to long throws. With up to 4,800 lux at 10 m / 32.8 ft and eight pixels per panel; dynamic CCT range of 1,500 K - 20,000 K; RGBACL full-spectrum color engine; wireless CRMX control; integrated power supply; advanced networking possibilities; and an IP66 rating, the SkyPanel X is an all-weather lighting solution tailored to existing workflows. It is available in two housing colors: iconic blue/silver and all-black.


The all-weather SkyPanel X

The SkyPanel X is your all-weather lighting solution. Engineered and IP66 certified for resilience against rain, storms, and cold water pressure washers, these lights embody innovation, reliability, and durability.

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing how SkyPanel X is used to convey accurate color and huge beams in such a small, yet familiar package. ARRI has put a lot of thought into all aspects of this fixture from design to photometrics and even control channels to allow us to move quickly, efficiently and, work successfully.

  • Yes. It is as simple as attaching the S60 Adapter to the X21 front. The attachment of the S60 Adapter is a tool-less, hot-swappable process that doesn't take more than a couple of seconds. And you can leave it always mounted, if this is your preferred workflow for the X21.

  • No. The all-weather IP66 rating of the fixture ensures that the inner parts in the lamphead are completely free from dust, dirt, or water ingress. However, you may want to clean the external housing and heat sink of the fixture with a hose, just to make it look better to the eye.

    SkyPanel X is an IP66-rated fixture, and therefore is protected against powerful water jets (100 liters per minute at 3 m distance with a 12.5 mm nozzle from all directions). This must be clear cold water to avoid corrosion and other material degradation, and never related to high-pressure jet or steam cleaning, which corresponds to a different rating.

    When you are performing the cleaning, make sure your fixture is off for maximum safety, with the caps in the connectors always on (except for the LEMO connector, which doesn't need it), and avoiding water jets directly over screws, gaskets, connectors and the climate membrane. Even when the fixture can withstand the test when coming out of the factory, we cannot ensure the fixture will continue to be IP66 if serviced and not properly re-sealed. Contact your ARRI Service Team for more information on how to do this properly.

    ARRI did not only test SkyPanel X in its facilities and on the field, but also via a serious independent lab: TÜV Süd. The test includes a dust-tight test (IP6x), a waterproof test (IPx6), an electrical safety check after both tests, plus an overall overview on searching for any trace of water inside of the fixture after all testing is performed.

  • It is both. Together with the X21 Dome or the S60 Adapter, the SkyPanel X is an excellent soft light panel. Together with the HyPer Optic, the SkyPanel X delivers a powerful and round beam, that can be used as a hard light. Both options are natively applied to the front of the lamphead, keeping all the advantages of each type of lighting. Furthermore, the SkyPanel X can be used as a lumen-optimized open-face light for bouncing purposes.

  • Every SkyPanel X kit includes one X21 lamphead, one X21 Dome, one X21 Manual Yoke, and one ALL-WEATHER Control Panel. Users can decide whether to purchase a soft light X21 kit, a hard and soft X21 kit, or a modular X23 kit with hard and soft configurations. Alternatively, it is possible to order a customized package with specific items. In any case, each X21 lamphead box will always include one X21 Dome for soft light applications.

  • SkyPanel X brings the following new features:

    • It can be used not only as a soft light panel, but also as a native round-beam hard light and a combined hard and soft large fixture.
    • It comes with a completely new full-spectrum color science, and the possibility to match the sensor needs of ALEXA cameras.
    • It includes 4 light engines with 2 controllable zones each, for a total number of 8 pixel zones.
    • It delivers the widest CCT range (1,500 K - 20,000 K) and the best flicker-free, low-end dimming to date.
    • It outputs 4,800 lux at 10-meter distance via the new HyPer Optic.
    • It is all-weather, with IP66 rating not only in the lamphead, but also for the SkyPanel X accessories.
    • It brings internal CRMX2 with BLE control, and native Bluetooth 5.0 direct control.
    • It has an optimized and simplified DMX chart, with two legacy DMX modes that are fully compatible with S60-C.
    • It is designed with an integrated power supply, and its display can also be used as a remote control.
    • It facilitates rigging procedures via a quick-lock mount and several modular possibilities.
    • As a soft light, it works not only as a direct soft light via the X21 Dome or the S60 Adapter, but also as a powerful open-face LED panel for bouncing purposes.
    • As a hard light, it works natively for very long throws (50 meters and beyond), diffused for medium distances (3 to 10 meters), or bounced over a reflective surface.
  • Both units are 2:1 LED panels that deliver great skin tones, local and DMX-based controls, full-color operation in different modes, and a wide range of tools for soft light applications. They are also fully compatible: all existing S60-C accessories fit the X21 when its S60 Adapter is attached. The weight specification is also similar for both fixtures, when the S60-C has its power supply attached in the back.
