ARRI has chosen Prolight + Sound as an opportunity to prove the ability of their products to complete even the most complicated of lighting tasks, such as automotive lighting.
At the centre of their stand we find a Mercedes AMG GT, illuminated by 5 Skypanel S 360-C. These are equipped with new firmware, which is present for the first time in Frankfurt after being introduced during the last NAB show.
Inside are 10 new features for advanced control, including an easier and more intuitive colour search with Extended Colour Control, as well as the control of each single LED matrix (Light Engine) of the SkyPanel. We also have 4 additional pre-programmed lighting effects and selection of the colour on a XY graph.
Another new feature is the SkyPanel web portal, which is a very convenient way to make changes to a SkyPanel via an Ethernet or WiFi network. In Firmware 4, this web portal has been greatly enhanced and improved upon. A completely new design allows for fast navigation, with the new control interfaces offering complete control over all aspects of the SkyPanel directly from any web portal. Advanced control features also provide an in-depth view of all DMX features.
