ARRI’s launch of Orbiter in September got quite a lot of attention. This new, directional LED fixture for motion picture, television production, broadcast, theatre, and live entertainment is of course powered by LumenRadio’s CRMX technology.
It was back in 2017 that ARRI released its first CRMX-powered product, and until then they had been waiting for a “standardization” of wireless DMX. During this time, LumenRadio’s CRMX technology had started to be the de-facto standard in the motion picture and broadcast industry. “Actually, it has become a synonym for wireless DMX,” says Florian Bloch, Head of Product Management Lighting at ARRI.
ARRI is a global product manufacturer of camera equipment, lighting, and professional accessories for the motion picture, broadcast, theatre, and photographic industries. In addition, they provide a complete range of services to their clients, offering solutions for the entire production process, from script to screen.
“For several years we have been delivering wireless technology to ARRI, and we are proud to be part of the Orbiter as ARRI continues to set the standard in motion picture lighting,” says Josef Hederström, International Sales Manager at LumenRadio.
Because filmmaking and live entertainment is extremely time and cost-sensitive, wireless technology is a key component to keeping the costs down. The addition of LumenRadio CRMX allows for advanced and efficient setup and workflow ensuring every minute on-set can be used to its fullest.
“Since our first meeting, LumenRadio has proven its capabilities in all areas of the business. Their reliable project management, accurate application support, and technologies, but most of all, their great spirit and mindset helped to turn our previous customer-supplier relationship into real, sustainable cooperation between our companies,” says Florian Bloch.
ARRI’s CRMX-enabled products have been used at the Grammy Awards and during the production of several Oscar-nominated movies and have set a new standard for the industry. Since 2017, LumenRadio’s CRMX has been used in ARRI’s legendary products SkyLink and SkyPanel S360-C, enabling top-class wireless lighting for the film industry.
The combination of ARRI’s expertise in the world of motion picture lighting and LumenRadio’s expertise in wireless technology will surely lead to even more innovations.
“We expect nothing less than true innovation in wireless technology from LumenRadio. You have set the standards and you will surely continue to do so in the future,” says Florian Bloch.
