ARRI continues to broaden their LED line and reaffirm their commitment to accurate color rendering with the introduction of the blue/silver SkyPanel S30 LED Softlight. Supported by a manual aluminum yoke, the panel’s surface area measures 14 x 11.8″, making it an ideal portable, on-the-go light source for mobile applications. Output is controlled via interchangeable thermoplastic diffusers that range from Standard to Lite to Heavy to soften the light and wrap its output around your subject and the SkyPanel S30-C outputs the equivalent of a 1000W tungsten soft light while drawing a maximum of only 240W.
Unlike other tuneable fixtures, SkyPanel makes no sacrifice when it comes to light output. SkyPanel puts out a tremendous amount of light, in a soft and uniform beam field. Brighter than a 1 KW tungsten soft light or a 3 KW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S30 has more than enough light for most applications. At the same time, the lamp head is able to perform beautifully at lower light levels. This range of illumination and color gives users an unprecedented amount of control.
SkyPanel is available in several sizes: the S30, S60, S120, and S360. The S60 is a mid-range model, featuring a light aperture of 645 x 300 mm and accommodating the vast majority of applications. The S120 is twice as long as the S60, but weighs nearly the same. Its larger light aperture makes a great soft light even better. The S30 is a smaller, more portable version; half the length of the S60, it is perfect for on-the-go mobile applications. The S360 is the largest and brightest SkyPanel with four times the output of the S60 and almost six times the aperture size. The S360 is perfect for lighting large areas with tuneable, soft light.
