(NAB Las Vegas, Nevada--April 20, 2009) ARRI is pleased to announce a trio of advanced, LED-based lighting products -- the PAX Panel, the Background Lighting Module (BLM) and the LED Caster Series. These lights have already been successfully used in studio and location applications in European markets.
The ARRI PAX Panel boasts an advanced light control system utilizing eight (8) Leo modules, the LED light engine, and intelligent algorithms to ensure consistent illumination in both color stability and light output. A wireless controller option provides remote control for adjusting color temperatures, HIS settings and the selection of color gels based on 3200K or 5600K sources. The ARRI PAX Panel is provided in two kit configurations.
The ARRI Background Lighting Module provides an exciting solution for cyclorama, screen, and rear illuminated panels. These LED units are available in both RGB and Warm/Cool White modules, allowing for various configurations and providing vibrant background color combinations.
Additionally, ARRI is launching the LED Caster Series that uses a tuneable white source with a special optical design to provide single shadow rendering and adjustments over a range of correlated color temperatures. Since the Caster series offers a CRI of 90, colors appear more vivid and lifelike on digital and film media than single color white or RGB LED configurations. LoCaster, the location model, is an ideal companion for mobile applications and interview situations whereas the BroadCaster is designed for when more control is desired remotely. The ARRI PAX Panel, LoCaster kit and BroadCaster units are available starting mid-summer 2009. However, ARRI BLM modules are available for immediate delivery.
