Orbiter Beam is the first beam optic in ARRI’s LED lighting portfolio, one of the brightest full-colour LED spot lights available, and suits long throw distances and cinematic applications.

ARRI’s new Orbiter Beam extends the accessory range for the Orbiter LED spot light. This is the first beam optic in the ARRI LED lighting portfolio. The Orbiter Beam reflector’s intensity level has a comparable output to the ARRI Daylight M-Series M18 within a tighter beam angle. These high intensity values can be achieved with a high-quality full-colour spectrum LED source, placing the Orbiter Beam among the brightest full-colour LED spot lights on the market. This parallel beam light suits cinematic applications, either for long throw distances or indirectly bounced.
This new Orbiter optic gives a defined and strong 4° parallel light beam with homogenous light. The Orbiter Beam optic is a useful option for creating the illusion of distant natural lights. The authentic, special look of this optic in combination with the versatile Orbiter fixture makes it a good choice for filmmakers when simulating the natural light of the sun or moon in film projects.

The Orbiter Beam features a large aperture in a compact, lightweight housing, measuring 573 mm x 548 mm x 548 mm / 22.6 in x 21.6 in x 21.6 in and weighing 5.9 kg / 13 lbs. The reflector’s diameter of 530 mm (20.9 in) is similar in size to the M90 luminaire. The two elements of the optic, the reflector and snoot, can be separated and stacked to store and transport. The Orbiter Beam has a manual hot-spot adjustment allowing variation from hard to soft edge light. The beam is a useful addition to the existing Orbiter Open Face optics 15°, 30° and 60°. No further accessories for the Orbiter Beam optic such as barndoors or snoots are required as the light beam produced is already nicely focused.
The Orbiter Beam can be mounted safely and quickly using Orbiter’s Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) system. Any Orbiter running the firmware LiOS2 or later is capable of operating the Orbiter Beam. The Orbiter Beam is available now to preorder. www.arri.com
