Due to the continuing popularity of its ARRILITE range, ARRI has announced two new fixtures that represent the next generation of these traditional, open-faced lights. With improved functionality and simplified maintenance, they perfectly cater to the demanding production environments of today´s film and television industries.
ARRILITE 750 Plus
The ARRILITE 750 Plus is a new and improved incarnation of ARRI’s traditional, open-faced light, the ARRILITE 800/1000. By optimizing the ARRIMAX reflector for usage with an HPL* 750W lamp, the ARRILITE 750 Plus offers 21% higher light efficiency than the previous ARRILITE 800W, while the ARRIMAX optical system improves distribution of the light. A detachable and fully rotatable accessory holder accommodates scrims and barndoors, and incorporates fittings that permit the Chimera Video Pro Plus S to be fitted directly, without an additional speedring. The one-arm stirrup allows for plenty of pan-and-tilt options and a heat-proof handle at the rear of the lamphead enables easy maneuvering. No tools are required for changing bulbs as the housing consists simply of two detachable parts that open and close through bayonet cap locks. The smaller and lighter aluminum housing of the ARRILITE 750 Plus makes it an ideal lamphead for lighting kits and therefore also suitable for electronic newsgathering, field production and fast turnaround location use.
