ARRI TRUE BLUES represent an unprecedented evolution
of the Studio and Location fixtures that have been popular
workhorses for over two decades. Following extensive
research and feedback from lighting professionals around
the world, combined with advances in technology, ARRI
has designed a series of six highly innovative lampheads
with over 30 new improvements for studio and location
lighting. With reduced weight, compact size and maximum
light output TRUE BLUES set a new standard for
professional lighting equipment.
New pressure die cast and extruded aluminum components have reduced the overall weight of the TRUE BLUE fixtures without any sacrifice in quality or durability. Many components now offer greater strength and resistance to corrosion. ARRI's cross cooling system* reduces lamp housing temperature by 25% and lens temperature by 17%. With special air channels built into the aluminum extrusion, a constant stream of air passes around the Fresnel lens and into the lamphead regardless of the tilt angle.
At the heart of the TRUE BLUE concept is a redesigned stirrup and improved tilt lock. The stainless steel friction disc locks the lamphead securely even with the largest Chimera or other accessories. To make lamphead balance even easier, the stirrup mounting slides and can be adjusted to counterbalance all accessories. The new extruded aluminum stirrup is stronger, lighter and less bulky but still permits full fixture rotation. Its soft contour makes it comfortable to carry.
The new Stegmaier connector* and strain relief rotate to allow the cable orientation to be quickly adjusted for hanging or stand mounting. Improved barndoors are stronger, less susceptible to bending and a new hinge design maintains constant tension that can be easily adjusted.
Routine maintenance and repair are easier with fast, simple access to all internal components. Cleaning is made effortless with smooth lamp housing surfaces.
ARRI has redesigned these new lights down to the smallest detail, offering lighting professionals better choices for location and studio work. TRUE BLUE Fresnels from 1000 to 5000W include the T1, T2, T5, ST1, ST2 and ST5.
TRUE BLUE fixtures are manufactured to the IP23 standard and are suitable for indoor use or outdoor use providing a degree of protection against falling rain (up to a 60 degree angle from vertical).
