(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 4, 2014) Following the success of the ARRI Caster Series LED-based products, ARRI is excited to present the latest advancements in the Caster Series: LoCaster 2 Plus and BroadCaster 2 Plus.
Both the LoCaster 2 Plus and BroadCaster 2 Plus have more than 35% increased light output compared with Caster 2, while still maintaining the same form factor and appearance, power draw of 35 W and compatibility with all existing Caster Series power and mounting accessories.
The ARRI Caster Series utilizes an advanced optical design and an LED arrangement to provide an efficient solution for LED lighting at an attractive price level. The ARRI LoCaster 2 Plus features an easy to use on-board controller with the ability to continuously adjust the CCT from 2,600 K - 6,500 K and full plus or minus green correction. Continuous dimming from 0 - 100% and an ON/OFF switch is also present. Weighing only 960 g (2 lbs), it is an ideal companion for mobile applications. The LoCaster 2 Plus will be available in a flexible lighting kit configuration, with a selection of accessories.
The ARRI BroadCaster 2 Plus incorporates a built-in DMX controller for versatility when lighting tight spots in small and medium-sized studios. With color temperature settings adjustable from 2,800 K to 6,500 K and a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of over 94, the ARRI Caster LED fixtures adapt easily to an existing lighting installation or to the variable conditions of a location shoot. By taking advantage of ARRI’s exclusive LED Technology, the Caster Series guarantees natural light characteristics, single shadow rendering, consistent light output and total color stability.
The Locaster 2 Plus and BroadCaster 2 Plus with stirrups are priced at $1535 and $1490, respectively.
