The new 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. Both optics have a motorized focus adjustment which allows for great precision and repeatability and can be controlled locally or remotely. The four manually adjustable shutter blades of the Projection Optics 35° produce a beam where the shutter blade cut, and the beam’s edge are simultaneously in sharp focus. The Projection Optics are perfectly suited for theaters, cinematic applications, as well as broadcast studios or live productions. Uses standard "B" size metal or glass gobos. Effortless mounting thanks to Orbiter's QLM system. Can be attached to any Orbiter color version.
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°.
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.
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% color 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. Every Projection Optic is shipped with the dedicated Goboholder.
