ARRI has announced the launch of the two Orbiter Projection Optics, 25° and 35°. Combined with Orbiter’s ARRI Spectra light engine, the optical system provides exacting precision, allowing for crisp projection of a light spot, as well as gobo projection and precise shutter cuts. The field of light is even and without color aberration. The projection has no visible hot spot or drop to the edge and the depth of field is outstanding. Both optics have a standard iris slot. The four manually adjustable shutter blades of the Projection Optics 25° and 35° produce a beam where the shutter blade cut projection and the beam’s edge are simultaneously in sharp focus. Both optics have a motorized focus adjustment which allows for great precision and repeatability. With the latest update of Orbiter’s Lighting Operating System, LiOS2, the focus can be controlled locally via Orbiter’s Control Panel or remotely by DMX/RDM or IP-based (ArtNet or sACN).
Orbiter’s Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) system allows the Projection Optics to be mounted safely and quickly while still enabling a 90° rotation. The LiOS2 update ensures an automatic recognition of this new optic and its latest feature, Optics Auto Adjust, offers 100% color stability with any focus and any optic. The optic’s cooling fan can be controlled via Orbiter’s Light Control setting through the Control Panel. Both Orbiter Projection Optics will be available in black in October 2022.
