SkyPanel is available in three sizes: the S120, S60 and S30. The S120 is twice as long as the S60, but weighs nearly the same. Its larger light aperture makes a great soft light even better. Retaining the same features and colour tuneability as its smaller counterparts, the S120 consumes less than 400 watts, yet it is slightly brighter than the S60-C and has an outstanding efficacy of 90 lumens per watt. The S60 is a mid- range model, featuring a light aperture of 645 x 300 mm and accommodating the vast majority of applications. The S30 is a smaller, more portable version; half the length of the S60, it is perfect for on-the-go mobile applications. The S60 and the S30 are available in fully colour tuneable and remote phosphor versions.
Unlike other tuneable fixtures, SkyPanel makes no sacrifice when it comes to light output. SkyPanel puts out a tremendous amount of light, in a soft and uniform beam field. Brighter than a 1 kW tungsten soft light or a 3 kW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S30 has more than enough light for most applications. At the same time, the lamphead is able to perform beautifully at lower light levels. This range of illumination and colour gives users an unprecedented amount of control.
NEW Firmware Upgrade 3.0
The state-of-the-art light engines and electronics built into every SkyPanel have paved the way for a powerful new feature in SkyPanel Firmware 3.0: lighting effects. With SkyPanel Lighting Effects users can now choose and manipulate 12 effects without the need for a lighting console or hours of programming. Each effect has several parameters that allow for customization of the effect to fit your needs. The lighting effects include: candle, clouds passing, club lights, colour chase, cop car, fire, fireworks, light strobe, lightning, paparazzi, pulsing, and television. SkyPanel Lighting Effects changes the game for on-set lighting effect generation.

The SkyPanel Family. Different sizes for different applications.
The new ARRI SkyPanel is an exceptionally versatile LED soft light – compact, fully tuneable and delivering light of unsurpassed power and quality. Because different application areas call for different lighting needs, SkyPanel has been designed as a series of fixtures. The S60 is the mid-range model and the S30 is the smaller, more portable version. With SkyPanel, the sky is limitless...
Fully Tuneable. Get the colour you want in seconds.
SkyPanel ‘C’ (Colour) versions have the ability to 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, and in addition to CCT control, vivid colour selection and saturation adjustment is 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 in order to ensure unit-to-unit and batch-to-batch consistency, as well as accurate colour temperatures. The SkyPanel series of lights also works in concert with the L-Series, ARRI's LED Fresnel line, perfectly.
Tremendous Output. One of the brightest soft lights on the market.
High output is usually not associated with a fully tuneable LED fixture, but with the SkyPanel ARRI has been able to accomplish both. SkyPanel has tremendous light output across the entire CCT range. Brighter than a 2 kW tungsten soft light or a 6 kW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S60 has more than enough light for most applications. In some cases the fixture can even compete with natural sunlight; at the same time, it is able to perform beautifully at lower light levels.
True Soft Light Beam Quality.
Soft and uniform is the name of the game.
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.
Outstanding Colour Rendition.
LED white light without sacrifices.
ARRI has always been at the forefront of LED white light colour quality and SkyPanel lives up to this standard. Natural rendition of skin tones, accurate colour reproduction and precise colour temperature settings are all areas where SkyPanel excels. Whether you measure the colour rendition using CRI (Colour Rendering Index), CQS (Colour Quality Scale) or TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index), SkyPanel performs beautifully.
A Single Soft, Clean Shadow. The proof is in the shadows.
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 in nature and do not exhibit multiple edges or strange colours, making SkyPanel one of the best LED soft lights for shadow rendition on the market.
Familiar but Revolutionary. Easy to use.
The SkyPanel user interface is designed to be incredibly easy to use, but also to make a wide range of controls available to the user, all at the same time. With three simple knobs, the colour temperature, green/magenta point, intensity, hue and saturation can be adjusted instantly. People who have never used the light before find the interface effective and intuitive. In addition to the on-board controls, all functions can be remotely adjusted via DMX or LAN network connections.
Use and adapt SkyPanel according to your needs.
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 diffuser panels on the front of the lamphead are interchangeable, so going from a heavy diffusion to a lite diffusion can be done in a matter of seconds. In addition, plans are in place to roll out further diffusion accessories that will accommodate other applications.
The SkyPanel also makes an amazing space light; by providing a large pool of downward soft light, as well as the ability to change CCT and vivid colours, SkyPanel offers a compelling alternative to conventional space lights. Other features include an on-board battery input for mobile applications, LAN port for network connectivity, USB-A port for firmware updates via thumb drive, and many more.
Battery mode included.
The SkyPanel's low power consumption allows the fixture to be operated in many locations, using many different sources of power. With the on-board battery input, SkyPanel can easily run off industry-standard batteries. Powerful, beautiful soft light need no longer be tethered to the wall or generator. The S60 can be operated at up to 50% of its total power while on battery, and the S30 can be used at full power.
Large Aperture. Bigger is better.
Having a diffused light source is not enough to make a true soft light. SkyPanel also has one of the largest light apertures in its power class; this substantial opening contributes significantly to the soft quality of light and wrapping of the source around a subject. When it comes to soft light aperture, bigger is usually better.
Remote Phosphor Version.
Extra brightness, amazing colour.
In addition to the fully tuneable colour versions of the SkyPanel, remote phosphor versions are also available. To make white LEDs, phosphors are typically placed directly on a single blue LED. Remote phosphor technology uses many powerful blue LEDs to excite a panel coated in phosphors, which is positioned further away from the LEDs.
These high-quality phosphors deliver near-perfect colour rendition and outstanding light output. The remote phosphor versions of SkyPanel are roughly 10% brighter than the colour versions and have a lower price point due to less complex electronics. Different colour temperature panels are available, including 2,700 K; 3,200 K; 4,300 K; 5,600 K; 6,500 and 10,000 K.
Built to Last. Constructed with great care from durable materials.
Made in Germany to the high standards for which all ARRI products are known, SkyPanel is built to last – constructed from resilient materials and assembled by hand with great care. The combination of an aluminium 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 to be easily serviceable. The LED light engine even allows for recalibration, further enhancing SkyPanel’s credentials as a long-lasting, high-quality fixture. As with all ARRI products, a high return on investment is ensured by uncompromising engineering standards.
