ARRI SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel

Introducing a robust, all-weather LED panel to your production arsenal with the ARRI SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel by ARRI. This modular LED panel, derived from the S60 SkyPanel, offers versatile lighting options encompassing both hard and soft lighting characteristics. With its advancements in dimming, color science, and output quality, it elevates your capabilities, delivering up to 20 times the output compared to conventional soft lights for medium to long-distance throws.

The modular design allows for native soft light usage with the included dome and hard light configurations with open-face lighting and the optional HyPer Optic lens. Furthermore, it facilitates the seamless integration of multiple panels, functioning as a unified fixture in 2×1 (X21), 2×2 (X22), and 2×3 (X23) configurations.

Measuring 29.1 x 13.3 inches, the 2×1 panel is equipped with a comprehensive RGBACL color engine, offering a CCT range from 1500K to 20,000K. It excels in delivering precise color rendition and offers an array of wired and wireless control options. Its IP66 rating ensures reliable performance in all weather conditions. Additionally, it features a built-in power supply unit for portability and supports power daisy-chaining with other SkyPanel X units to expand your lighting setup. Compatibility with all S60 accessories can be achieved through an optional adapter.

**All-Weather Design:** The SkyPanel X is your dependable solution for all-weather lighting needs. It is engineered and IP66 certified, demonstrating resilience against rain, storms, and even cold water pressure washers. These lights embody innovation, reliability, and durability.

**Soft Light:** This panel boasts a high-lumen output and offers flicker-free low-end dimming from 100% to 0%, ideal for close-up shots. It adapts easily to traditional SkyPanel techniques and includes the new X21 Dome. Furthermore, it enables the creation of 8-pixel patterns for special effects, streamlining your workflow for quick and effortless setup.

**Hard Light:** The SkyPanel X produces an optimal rounded beam with maximum punch and quality. When paired with the optional high-performance SkyPanel X HyPer Optic, it can create long-throw fixtures, surpassing the output of a 2.5kW open-face HMI lamp when used in the X23 configuration. It also offers unique pixel looks and is perfectly suited for use on cherry pickers, through windows, or when bouncing light.

**Modular Experience:** Enhance your lighting setup effortlessly with modular SkyPanel X units. A single daisy-chained power cable ensures a reliable power supply for all lights, and toolless frames with a quick-lock system simplify the setup process. Achieve maximum control capabilities with just one DMX profile.

**Control Options:** Explore a multitude of control options for the SkyPanel X, including an all-weather control panel, ARRI’s new LiCo App for Bluetooth control, LumenRadio’s wireless integration, DMX-512A, RDM, Art-Net 4, sACN, LAN IP, CRMX Classic, CRMX2, W-DMX G3/G4/G4S/G5, BLE, and Native Bluetooth 5.0.

**Software:** With LiOS3, numerous new software features are available, including a single DMX profile for X22 or X23 configurations, new DMX presets, and new ARRI ALEXA modes.

**SkyPanel X Digital Twin:** ARRI’s SkyPanel X digital twin represents the forefront of digital innovation, offering precise virtual lighting simulations. This technology transforms cinematic lighting workflows from preproduction to postproduction, providing 3D models, authentic characteristics, and intuitive interfaces. It equips filmmakers with advanced tools, enabling visualization, management, and collaboration to boost efficiency, consistency, and creativity in film production.

**Applications:** The X21 panel excels in providing soft lighting in close proximity to talent, offering flicker-free dimming in low-end conditions. It can be adjusted to match the color science of ALEV 3 and ALEV 4 sensors in ARRI ALEXA cameras using ARRI ALEXA modes. Additionally, when paired with the HyPer Optic, the SkyPanel X delivers a punchy light source, making it ideal for use through windows with diffusion. It provides an attractive alternative to traditional point-source lights, offering both punch and a rounded beam, coupled with the advantages of LED lighting technology.
