The Arri SkyPanel S60-C LED Softlight with Manual Yoke is an exceptionally versatile LED soft light – compact, fully tunable and delivering light of unsurpassed power and quality.
Precise Color Rendering
SkyPanel ‘C’ (Color) versions can adjust the correlated colour temperature anywhere between 2,800 K and 10,000 K, with excellent colour rendition over the entire range. Full plus and minus green correction can be achieved with the simple turn of a knob. In addition to CCT control, vivid colour selection and saturation adjustment are also possible.
Applications for this controllability range from quickly adjusting the CCT to set the mood of a scene, to selecting the perfect green colour to wash a greenscreen. Each LED light engine is computer calibrated to ensure unit-to-unit and batch-to-batch consistency and accurate colour temperatures. The SkyPanel series of lights also perfectly works with the L-Series, ARRI's LED Fresnel line.
Soft Light Beam Quality
Soft lights are known for their smooth quality of light and even, uniform beam field – SkyPanel is no different. The combination of the curated selection of diffusion panels, LED mixing chamber, and large light aperture allows for the light to wrap around objects, eliminating sharp shadows and making for a perfect beauty light. The beam field is homogeneous in both colour and intensity.
Natural Shadow Rendition
SkyPanel perfectly mixes some 2,000 calibrated red, green, blue and white LEDs into one homogeneous beam of soft light. In addition to providing excellent light, the SkyPanel also provides excellent shadows. The shadows are soft and do not exhibit multiple edges or strange colours, making SkyPanel one of the best LED soft lights for shadow rendition.
The SkyPanel user interface is designed for ease of use with a wide range of controls available to the user. Three simple knobs adjust the colour temperature, green/magenta balance, light intensity and hue and saturation instantly. In addition to the onboard controls, all functions can be remotely adjusted via DMX or LAN network connections.
The SkyPanel was designed to be used primarily as a soft light to illuminate people. However, features were also designed into the fixture to make it extremely versatile. The diffusor panels on the front of the lamp head are interchangeable, so going from a massive diffusion to a lite diffusion can be done in seconds. With the onboard battery input, SkyPanel can be run off industry-standard batteries. The S60 can be operated at up to 50% of its total power on battery power. The SkyPanel also makes a useful space light outputting a sizeable downward-directed pool of colour controllable soft light through an optional silk cylinder.
Built to Last
Made in Germany to the high standards for which all ARRI products are known, SkyPanel S60-C LED is built to last – constructed from resilient materials and assembled by hand with great care. The combination of an aluminum core with fibreglass-reinforced thermoplastics results in a solid fixture that can withstand heavy daily use on busy film sets. The electronics have been designed to last beyond a minimum of 25,000 hours, and be easily serviceable. The LED light engine even allows for recalibration, further enhancing SkyPanel’s credentials as a long-lasting, high-quality fixture.
The SkyPanel S60-C can be used worldwide thanks to its included 90-250 VAC power supply, but it can also use optional 23-36 VDC batteries when mains power is unavailable. Besides the power supply, the light comes with a Junior (1 1/8") pin and a standard diffuser. This version of the light has a manual yoke and comes with an Edison power cord.
