Arri Expands Orbiter Accessory Line

The Orbiter Docking Ring, Orbiter Bag-o-Light, Orbiter Glass Cover and Orbiter Dome Mini are now available.

Arri is expanding its accessory range for the Orbiter LED luminaire with the Orbiter Docking Ring, the Orbiter Bag-o-Light, Orbiter Glass Cover and Orbiter Dome Mini.

Featuring a unique Quick Lighting Mount system, the Orbiter Docking Ring enables the luminaire to accept various industry-standard third-party optics, enlarging the fixture’s application possibilities. The adapter connects without any additional tools onto the QLM of every Orbiter. The ring is automatically recognized by the luminaire, and the light output is automatically adjusted. Thanks to the built-in automatic cooling fan, the use of third-party optics is also safe. 

The tool allows the attachment of a wide range of compatible optics from various manufacturers, including projection optics, Fresnel and Cyc-optics (up to a weight of 17.4 pounds). The Docking Ring itself weighs 2.2 pounds and measures 9.7" x 8.9" x 3.4", which makes transport easy. The ring is not necessary when applying Arri optics and accessories. 

The Orbiter Bag-o-Light enables users to create soft and almost shadow-free illumination. The accessory resembles a large tube and can be attached to Orbiter’s 15° Open Face optic. When inflated, it is 6'7" long with a diameter of 8 1/2" and weighs less than 2 pounds.

The Orbiter Glass Cover is a compact, lightweight optical accessory made of ultra-translucent glass. It allows for full, unrestricted light output without impacting color temperature or quality. The QLM integrated in Orbiter facilitates easy mounting. The Glass Cover also simultaneously protects the Orbiter’s light engine and can be used instead of the transport cap cover. 

The Orbiter Dome Mini, a compact version of the Dome optic, provides omnidirectional light at a high intensity. Its highly translucent material keeps light-output loss to a minimum. It is ideal for near-distance applications with limited available space. The QLM in Orbiter allows for easy attachment of the Dome Mini.
