Introducing the S360-C
ARRI SkyPanel has always been known for its tremendous output and large light aperture. The new S360-C has expanded 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. Features include 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.
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, 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.
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.
