Arri Updates LiOS for Orbiter

Highlights of the update include three new modes and a new language package that supports Portuguese, Japanese and Korean.

Arri has released LiOS2 for the Orbiter LED luminaire. Highlights of the update include three new modes: Sync, Cue and Optics Auto Adjust.

With Sync Mode, lighting parameters can be enabled or changed in sync with the camera frames. Even frame brightness or CCT range can be changed to accommodate new creative ideas. 

Cue Mode enables precise lighting control on the spot; every operator can set the key lighting parameter on time and with precision. Besides variable timing and working options, Cue Mode allows for fluid, easy light changes in different lighting modes. 

Optics Auto Adjust Mode guarantees color stability with any optic and any focus. Utilizing the accessory recognition of Orbiter’s Quick Lighting Mount, the Arri Spectra light engine is modified to maintain maximum color stability no matter which configuration is used, including textiles such as Softboxes or Domes, a reflector in Open Face, or lenses such as the Orbiter Fresnel lens. Also, with Orbiter’s Fresnel lens, LiOS2 ensures the color rendition across its entire zoom range. 

LiOS2 also extends the Orbiter’s gel library and offers a new language package that supports Portuguese, Japanese and Korean. In addition, the values of the integrated color sensor in Orbiter can now directly be selected from color modes like CCT or HIS. 

The new DMX Mode Spec V5 allows for more convenient network operation and additional features within the LiOS2 update. For example, the zoom range of the Orbiter Fresnel lens can be operated, allowing for Extended Color Control to be directly available. (All elements are also addressable via RDM.)
