ARRI Updates the Only LED You'll Ever Need

The ARRI SkyPanel is probably the best professional LED on the planet.

If you're not familiar with the ARRI SkyPanel, No Film School host Charles Haines and Michael Wagner of ARRI dive into the latest capabilities of firmware 3.0. The LED fixture is fully tunable from 2,800-10,000K featuring DMX control, network functionality, Ethernet protocol communication and a high-speed mode where you can shoot at any frame rate or shutter angle flicker free. 

Firmware 3.0 is SkyPanel's third major upgrade and has 10 new features including 318 pre-programmed gels and 12 pre-programmed lighting effects. Check out the video above to get all the details. 

Tech Specs: 

  • Fully tuneable
  • 2,800 - 10,000K 
  • DMX controllable 
  • CRI Average > 95
  • TLCI Average > 90

Based on the LED test posted to nofilmschool just a few days ago, the Skypanel is definitely not the best if what you seek is to match accurate daylight or tungsten light.

Thanks for reporting from NAB! Side note, that mic flag is very creative way to keep people from leaning into the mic. I'd love it if you could shock people with it.
