PLSN Staff • Product News • October 6, 2020


MUNICH – ARRI is happy to announce that its new, versatile LED fixture, Orbiter, will soon be available to customers worldwide. Since Orbiter’s product launch in September 2019, many initial field tests have been conducted and valuable user feedback on Orbiter and its features has been collected. Using these findings, Orbiter was greenlit into serial production. Starting today, the first units are being shipped to customers.

More details from ARRI (

Orbiter is manufactured at the ARRI Lighting factory in Stephanskirchen, Germany. A close partner network of companies from the region, with the necessary experience and know-how, was already established for the production of the SkyPanel. This network now also serves as an essential component for the production of Orbiter—not only to meet the production volume but also due to the group’s commitment and understanding of ARRI quality.

A completely new production concept was developed for the assembly and evaluation of the Orbiter, with an extended and comprehensive test setup. A high level of process automation that ensures stable quality standards, combined with experienced employees and the necessary flexibility, enables ARRI to continue to develop and manufacture its products in Germany.

In addition to the core element ARRI Spectra, the new and innovative light engine, a wide range of accessories is already available with the delivery of the Orbiter, making Orbiter an even more powerful and versatile tool. The ability to easily attach and change a variety of optics by using the Quick Lighting Mount QLM allows Orbiter to transform into different types of lampheads. In addition, the new Lighting Operating System LiOS will be available and already programmed into the Orbiter units. This system not only offers the user many features as well as a modern and straightforward interface today, but will also continue to be further developed in order to meet future needs and requirements.

Orbiter comes with an extended 3-year warranty as well as 5 years for electronic parts and 10 years for spare parts and is available in the ARRI silver and blue colors as well as a black version
