The Orbiter Projection Optics 25° and 35° provide unparalleled precision in every detail allowing for crisp projection of a light spot, as well as immaculate gobo projection and precise shutter cuts. The field of light is entirely even and without color aberration. The projection has no visible hot spot or drop to the edge and the depth of field is outstanding.
Any focus adjustment between gobo and shutter is barely necessary; focus adjustment between gobo and open gate is not necessary at all. Additional ARRI accessories like a snoot or color filter frames can be added in front enabling fine tuning when needed. The Orbiter Projection Optics are a great addition to the already existing Orbiter Fresnel Lens 15-65°.
Optical Performance Orbiter Projection Optics are truly second to none, outperforming all competitor projection optics and dedicated profile fixtures. And while the Orbiter Docking Ring allows third-party optics that customers may already own to be used on the Orbiter, such combinations can only ever be as good as those third-party optics. Compared to the quality of ARRI’s own optics, this will inevitably mean a compromise in quality. If you want outstanding optical performance in every aspect, with no brown/blue shadow or edge at any focus, almost no chromatic aberration, and simultaneous sharpness of any shutter blades at any angle, then the Orbiter Projection Optics should be your first choice.
Application possibilities Combined with Orbiter’s ARRI Spectra light engine, the high-end optical system provides a state-of-the-art LED profiler which is perfectly suited for theatres, cinematic applications, as well as broadcast studios or live productions.
Mounting & Accessories Orbiter’s unique Quick Lighting Mount (QLM) system allows the Projection Optics to be mounted safely and quickly but 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% colour 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.
Four manually adjustable shutter blades produce a beam where the shutter blade cut projection and the beam’s edge are simultaneously in sharp focus
Motorised focus adjustment
Focus control locally or remotely
Standard B-size metal or glass gobo can be added
Effortless mounting thanks to Orbiter’s QLM system Can be attached to any Orbiter color version
