The SkyPanel is a compact, ultra-bright and high-quality LED soft light. It is much more efficient than a soft light with a conventional light source. The different models of the SkyPanel emit white light with a fixed color temperature or colored light with adjustable color temperature and adjustable green-magenta point. The light spectrum is optimized for ex- cellent color rendition and fulfills perfect the demands of modern, digital cameras. All models of the Sky- Panel can be controlled using the common DMX512-A protocol, Art-Net, sACN or the fixture menu. Please observe the SkyPanel Installation and Safety Manual. The manual is available for free download on the ARRI web site arri.com. FeaturesLight Field The SkyPanel offers the same functionality as a conventional soft light. Even Light Field The SkyPanel soft light produces a homogeneous, single-shadow light field, delivering natural results. Vibrant Colors, Full Spectrum Lighting True-to-life color rendition is an outstanding feature of the SkyPanel. The fully tunable white light of the SkyPanel can be adjusted for different skin tones, camera sensors and mixed light environments. Full gam- ut color mixing enables the rendition of all color shades. The extensive gel library (from firmware version 2.0) offers a wide range of familiar colors at the user’s fingertips. Cool Light Beam The SkyPanel does not emit any infrared or UV radiation and thus does not forward heat, making actors feel comfortable in the light beam. PropertiesAccessory Holder Diffuser plates or an intensifier is placed on the front of the fixture and secured by locking guiding rails or held by four locking pins. Both the diffuser and intensifier of the S360-C are equipped with guiding rails at the front to carry other accessories for shaping the light like a honey comb. Yoke The aluminum or carbon fiber yoke provides high strength with minimum weight. The short metal yoke (only S360-C) is the perfect solution when the SkyPanel is mounted in a grid facing downwards. NOTICE This manual describes the C and RP models of the SkyPanel. Please note, that the RP model emits only white light with a fixed color temperature. The color temperature is defined by the Phosphor panel used. InnooiittccuuddoorrttnnI5 5 Introduction6 Tilt-Lock The high strength tilt-locks on each side of the stirrup provide secure locking. It eliminates movement and slippage and ensures that the SkyPanel will stay where you put it. Control All functions of the SkyPanel are controllable through DMX, Art-Net or sACN. The SkyPanel is also fully RDM compatible (via DMX and Art-Net with suitable controllers) and is equipped with an RDM feedback channel for reporting all set parameters including system status. The SkyPanel S360-C is equipped with an integrated CRMX transceiver for wireless control and RDM com- munication. All other models of the SkyPanel series can be controlled wireless when using the SkyLink system, which is available as an accessory. Fixture Menu For location applications the SkyPanel is equipped with a fixture menu for manual adjustment of intensity, color temperature, green-magenta point as well as hue and saturation and other parameters.

To Set the Operation Mode Press the MODE button (8) short to switch from CCT to HSI to GEL to Source to RGBW to X,Y and back to CCT mode. In CCT mode the SkyPanel generates white light with optimized color rendition. In HSI mode the SkyPanel generates colored light. If saturation is set very low, the SkyPanel generates white light, but not with opti- mized color rendition. The GEL mode offers an extensive color gel library. In Source mode the SkyPanel generates the light of traditional light sources. Use the RGBW mode to generate a RGBW color using the control panel. The X,Y mode generates a color defined by its X,Y coordinates. Press the MODE button long (> 3 sec.) to activate the extended color control. The extended color control feature is not available in RGBW mode unless RGBW Calibrated Color Space is activated. SkyPanel Remote The SkyPanel Remote is connected with an USB cable to a SkyPanel softlight. It is powered by the SkyPanel and does not use a battery. The SkyPanel Remote emulates the SkyPanel fixture menu. Each SkyPanel Remote controls one SkyPanel. Use multiple SkyPanel softlights in a master / slave configuation to control them with one SkyPanel Remote. The SkyPanel checks the firmware of the SkyPanel Remote every time it is connected. If the firmware ver- sion of the SkyPanel Remote is different to the firmware version of the SkyPanel the SkyPanel Remote firmware will be synchronized automatically, no matter if it is an up- or downgrade. FuunneeMMe e rruuttxxiiF9 9 Fixture Modes 10 Fixture Modes The SkyPanel offers, depending on the model, up to 31 control modes. Use the 8 bit modes with basic con- trollers like dimmer consoles. ARRI recommends the use of the 16 bit modes in combination with controllers supporting 16 bit resolution to obtain best results. The high resolution provides smooth dimming and precise color adjustments. The coarse / fine modes utilize two channels for most parameters and provide higher resolution compared to the 8 bit modes in combination with controllers that do not support true 16 bit resolution. One channel sets the coarse value between 0 and 255 of the function. Each step is divided in 256 increments using the fine channel. This way it is possible to control the light very precise without using a true 16 bit resolution. Below is a short overview of the different control modes. Please find a detailed overview of all DMX modes in the document „SkyPanel DMX Protocol Specification“ which is available for free download on the ARRI website arri.com. CCT and RGBW This mode provides control of intensity, color temperature, green-magenta point and individual channels for controlling the red, green, blue and white color (only SkyPanel-C). CCT Simple white-only mode. It is used when the number of available channels of the controller is very limited. It provides control of intensity, color temperature and green-magenta point. CCT & HSI Provides control of intensity, color temperature, green-magenta point, hue and saturation (HSI = hue, sat- uration, intensity). In HSI mode (only SkyPanel-C) the color and intensity is very even over the fixtures as it is controlled using color algorithms which take the tolerances of the light engines into account during cal- culation. RGBW Simple mode for controlling the overall intensity and the red, green, blue and white intensity when only a limited number of channels is available. Please find more information about the RGB color space on page 16. HSI Simple mode for controlling hue, saturation and intensity when a limited number of channels is available. GEL The GEL mode offers an extensive color filter list. The color temperature has two settings, 3.200 K and 5.600 K. The intensity can be controlled as usual. xy Coordinates The xy mode determines the color displayed by its xy coordinates in the CIE 1931 diagram. Set the x and y coordinate with 8 bit or 16 bit resolution. One channel determines the transition type when fading from one color to another color. Source Matching Select from a list of light sources to match that color and spectrum. Source Matching saves a lot of time when you need a specific illumination. Select from 50 different light sources the one which fits best to your demands. Light Effects The SkyPanel contains a light effect engine with 13 different light effects. Activating a light effect is very easy. Just activate a light effect via the fixture menu, DMX, Art-Net or sACN and set the parameters to get exactly the effect you need. Light Engine Control via DMX The light engines of the SkyPanel can be controlled individually. The control modes CCT & RGBW, HSI and X,Y coordinates apply to all light engines of a fixture, but you can set the corresponding parameters of each light engine individually. The S30 has one light engine, the S60 has two, the S120 has four, and the S360 has twelve light engines. Ultimate DMX Mode The ultimate DMX mode allows the combination of different control modes. You can select two modes and fade between them. This allows you to quickly select, prepare and crossfade the most suitable control modes for your application. Extended color control The extended color control allows to intuitively modify the current color. If extended color control is active, eight parameters are added to each control mode (see “Extended Color Control” on page 12). User Guide for SkyPanel as Decorative Lights ARRI lighting products are being applied into an increasing amount of application scenarios. When used as a decorative light in events, exhibition or live shows, SkyPanels can perform for the eyes of the audience as well as for the camera by using the recommend settings below: • Use a calibrated color mode such as HSI or CCT mode. RGBW mode can also be used if "RGBW Calibrated Color“ is turned on. • In case low intensity output is needed, ARRI recommends to activate Low End Mode. • Intensity levels above 1% will yield better results. This applies to all above mentioned modes and all dimming curves NOTICE Depending on the selected mode the channels required for each SkyPanel should be allocated in the controller to provide independent control of all SkyPanels connected to the controller. 11Fixture ModesFixture Modes11 Functions 12 Functions To set the Lighting Parameters in CCT Mode Set the color temperature continuously with the central rotary knob (5).

To Set the Brightness in all Operating Modes Set the brightness in both operating modes continuously with the encoder I/S (4). The setting is dynamic: Turning the encoder fast changes the intensity in coarse steps, turning it slow changes the intensity in fine steps. To Set the Dimming Curve The SkyPanel supports four dimming curves. The dimming curves are global: They affect both the intensity control via the fixture menu or DMX, wireless DMX, Art-Net and sACN. • Linear: The intensity changes proportional to the encoder I/S (4) or the channel value. • Exponential: The resolution is high at lower intensity levels and low at higher intensity levels. Use this dimming curve when you need a high resolution at low intensity levels. This is the default setting. • Logarithmic: The resolution is low at lower intensity levels and high at higher intensity levels. Use this dimming curve when you need a high resolution at high intensity levels. • „S“ curve: The resolution is both high at lower and higher intensity levels and low at intensity levels in between. Use this dimming curve, when you need a high resolution at low and high intensity levels. To set the dimming curve 1.Press the MENU button (10) to open the fixture menu. 2.Turn I/S, until „Light Control“ is selected. Press I/S to open the menu. 3.Turn I/S, until „Dimming Curve“ is selected. Press I/S to open the menu. 4.Select the dimming curve by turning I/S. Press I/S to confirm the setting. To Set a Special Control Mode The SkyPanel supports four special control modes. The special control modes are global: They affect both the intensity control via the fixture menu or DMX, wireless DMX, and Art-Net or sACN. Stage Mode Stage Mode is designed for live entertainment and theatrical performances which require completely smooth dimming to zero without intensity drop offs. Some color changes may happen at very low dimming levels. Stage Mode is not designed for use with motion picture or broadcast cameras as flicker may occur. NOTE Presets made in Firmware 4.0 or higher will not work on lower firmware versions. NOTICE The dynamic of an effect using the intensity is very low, when you choose a basic intensity value in a flat area of the dimming curve. Choose a different effect or select another dimming curve to create a more dynamic effect. Low End Mode The Low End Mode optimizes the dimmer quality at low intensity levels and enables SkyPanel to generate accurate CCTs with high color rendition and smooth dimming at very low light levels. The Low End Mode can cause flickering when used with cameras shooting at high frame rates. NOTICE The stage mode can not be used with active low end mode and vice versa. The warning „Not Avail- able: Low End Mode“ or „Not Available: Stage Mode“ will be displayed when you try to activate the stage mode or low end mode if the other mode is active. You need to de-activate the other mode before. Tungsten Mode The tungsten Mode can mimic the dimming curve and strike on-and-off effect of a traditional tungsten lamp. The CCT warms as the light is dimmed and when the intensity drops to zero quickly there is a short after- glow of warm light. This mode is perfect for mixing the SkyPanel with tungsten sources or for producing a familiar effect. High Speed Mode The High Speed mode generates flicker-free light for High Speed shootings. High Speed Mode has been tested up to 25.000 fps and down to 2° shutter angle with no flicker or roll bars. The intensity is fixed in High Speed mode. The only settings are 0% (black out) or 100% (full intensity). In High Speed mode the settings for low end mode, tungsten mode, effects and PWM frequencies are ignored.The operation modes CCT, HSI and GEL are available in High Speed Mode. When modifying a parameter the SkyPanel performs a short black-out when applying the new value. The operation modes SOURCE and RGBW are not available in High Speed Mode. NOTICE Effects are de-activated in High Speed mode. When you try to call up an effect in High Speed mode, the warning „Not Possible: High Speed Active“ is displayed. When you try to activate the High Speed mode with an effect active, the warning „Not Possible: Effect Active“ is displayed. De-activate the effect or the High Speed mode to change the control mode.

Art-Net is a network protocol to control devices. Here is a brief explanation of some basic terms being used by Art-Net. For more detailed information, please visit the web site of the Art-Net developers: artisticlicence.com. The SkyPanel is capable of processing Art-Net for up to ten universes with one sender and three universes with two senders. Generals rules of thumb: • Maximum of 4 universes of Art-Net Art-DMX unless you really have to, • All universes of sACN. Please find more information about sACN in the standard ANSI E1.31. Please observe all information given there to set up a proper network. Art-Net IP Address When setting the IP address manually, please take care the address is in the range 2.0.0.1 to 2.255.255.255 (Network switch off) or 10.0.0.1 to 10.255.255.255 (Network switch on). Any other range is not according to the Art-Net standard and problems might occur. Art-Net Net A group of 16 consecutive Sub-Nets or 256 consecutive Universes is referred to as a net. There are 128 Nets in total. Sub-Net A group of 16 consecutive universes is referred to as a sub-net. (Not to be confused with the subnet mask). Universe A single DMX512 frame of 512 channels is referred to as a Universe. Art-Net Merge Mode The Art-Net protocol allows multiple nodes or controllers to transmit ArtDmx data to the same uni- verse.Merging is limited to two sources. If there are additional sources, merging will be de-activated. The Merger can act as an LTP or HTP merger (LTP = Latest Takes Precedence, HTP = Highest Takes Precedence). Art-Net Gateway With enabled Art-Net gateway the SkyPanel makes all 512 channels of the used universe available at its DMX connectors. The menu „Art-Net Settings“ contains all parameters to set up a SkyPanel in an Art-Net network. Please find a detailed description in the chapter “Features of the Fixture Menu” on page 7. The Art-Net gateway is RDM capable. All RDM compatible devices in a network can be detected by the integrated RDM controller. RDM management over Art-Net is supported. Network Settings The "Network Settings" menu contains various parameters for setting up the SkyPanel in a network. Link Shows whether the SkyPanel is connected to a network. IPWhen the SkyPanel is connected to a network, the display shows its IP address. Mode Sets the IP mode. In "DHCP" mode, the IP address, gateway, DNS1 and DNS2 are automatically assigned to the fixture by the network. You should use this mode if possible. The parameters "Art-Net 2.x.x.x.x" and "Art-Net 10.x.x.x" are used to set up the fixture in an Art-Net net- work. "Manual" enables the assignment of a fixed IP address. Mask Shows the network mask. Gateway Shows the gateway address. DNS1 / DNS2 DNS addresses of the fixture. MAC Shows the MAC address of the fixture. BONJ The SkyPanel can be found automatically in a network via the "Bonjour" application. Activate or deactivate Bonjour In the "BONJ" menu. You can also set the status via RDM or the Web Portal. If Bonjour is disabled, the fixture cannot be automatically detected by ARRI Lighting Service Manager. MDNS Displays the MDNS address of the fixture (ID and serial number of the device). ARRI Lighting Service Manager Please find information about the features and the functionality of the ARRI Lighting Service Manager in the user manual for the ARRI Lighting Service Manager. You can download it with the ARRI Lighting Ser- vice Manager software-bundle from the ARRI web site arri.com/lightingsoftware free of charge. 29NetworkingNetworking29 Networking 30 SkyPanel Web Portal The SkyPanel provides a web page accessible via http, when connected to a network. Type in the IP ad- dress of the SkyPanel in your web browser to open the web portal and change the settings listed below.
