ARRI continues to enlarge their LED line with the introduction of the massive SkyPanel S360-C LED Softlight. Supported by a weight-reducing carbon fiber yoke, the panel surface area measures 34.4 x 50.4". It employs interchangeable thermoplastic diffusers that range from Lite to Heavy to soften the light and wrap its output around your subject. There's also an Intensifier that boosts the output for long-throw use. A Standard medium diffuser is included with the light. The SkyPanel outputs the approximate equivalent of an 8000W tungsten soft light while drawing a maximum of only 1500W.

Using technology originally designed for the L7-C Fresnel, the SkyPanel S360-C is fully color tunable, allowing output of warm 2800K to icy blue 10,000K light, and it also uses the full RGB+W color gamut with hue and saturation control for fine adjustments. Plus and minus 1/8 green-magenta adjustment is also possible, so if you're lighting for blue or green screen, you can simply dial in your chosen color. This wide degree of control is responsible for a very high CRI of 95 and a TLCI rating of 90. All of these functions, as well as 0-100% dimming, can be adjusted locally with the SkyPanel's onboard controller, with an optional wired remote, standard DMX, or wireless DMX and RDM via onboard LumenRadio. Besides inputs and outputs appropriate to these functions, the light also has USB-A and Ethernet connections for DMX setup, fixture status and control, and firmware upgrades from a flash drive, Windows or Mac.

The SkyPanel S360-C can be used worldwide, thanks to its included 100-240 VAC power supply. Besides the power supply, the light comes with a Junior (1-1/8") pin and an intensifier. This version of the light has a manual carbon fiber yoke and comes with an Edison power cord.

Enormous Aperture 

Soft lights are all about size, the larger the aperture the better. With the S360-C, size has not been compromised. The surface area of the S360-C is over 5.8 times larger than the 560 and produces beautiful soft light in a wide 105° beam angle. The light will wrap around large objects and throw much farther than the smaller SkyPanels.

Lumens, Lumens, and more Lumens

At over 120,000 lumens, the S360-C is one of the brightest LED soft lights on the market. Compared to the S60-C, the S360-C is more than four times brighter and maintains excellent color quality and tunability. Consuming only 1500 watts, the S360-C is twice as bright as a 4,000-watt tungsten soft light and over three times as bright as a 12,000-watt tungsten space light. Achieving an energy efficacy of over 80 lumens per watt, the S360-C is also one of the most eco-friendly LED soft lights available while also being one of the brightest.

Wireless DMX, Built In

SkyPanel has always had a multitude of ways to control the light output; DMX, RDM, Art-Net, SACN, 5-Pin XLR, and Ethernet. The S360-C adds another important communication method, and this one does not involve any wires: Wireless DMX by LumenRadio. Built into every S360-C, the CMRX chip allows for DMX and RDM communication without the hassle of cables and distribution equipment. Simply link a compatible LumenRadio transmitter to the S360-C and you're good to go. Using the 5-Pin DMX output on the S360-C also allows for daisy chaining other non-wireless SkyPanels to the DMX network.
