The M18 combines MAX Technology, True Blue features and a new 1800 W lamp. The result is an exciting new class of HMI that can be powered from most domestic sockets. It is as small as a 1200 W PAR lamphead but with 70% higher light output. Adjustable from 20° to 60° beam angle, the M18 can also be used with 1200 W lamps.
Like all members of the M-Series, the M40 unifies the advantages of a PAR light and a Fresnel fixture. Due to the unique lens-less MAX Technology, the unit is open face and thus very bright, but also focussable over a range of 18 to 52° HPA (Half Peak Angle), casting a crisp shadow. The reflector characteristics is optimised for 4000 W lamps, but can also be used with 2500 W lamps.
The lamphead is equipped with a CCL module (compensation for cable loss). When operated with the ARRI EB 2.5/4 with CCL, full power is maintained all the way to the lamp even when very long cables are used. This means uniformly high light output independent from cable length.
To close the gap between the M40 and the ARRIMAX 18/12, the M90 introduces a new power class of 9,000 W. The unit is open-faced and very bright; it is also focusable from 16° up to 49°, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. ARRI technology partner Osram developed a new 9,000 W lamp for the M90, which is stable at 1,000 Hz and almost as small as the 6,000 W lamp that can alternatively be used. This allowed ARRI to design the M90 in a very compact housing, barely larger than the ARRISUN 60.
Accompanying the M90 is a new ballast, the EB 6/9, available in standard and high speed versions. Like other recent ballasts from ARRI, it features CCL (Compensation for Cable Loss) technology and the power-saving ALF (Active Line Filter). The EB 6/9 is DMX compatible and no bigger than ARRI’s existing EB 6000 Baby ballast. ETL certified versions of EB 6/9 are available.
ARRIMAX 18K / 12K
The original Academy Award-winning ARRIMAX remains the ultimate choice for productions requiring maximum light output. The 580 mm (22.83”) diameter, parabolic facetted reflector provides continuous focus adjustment from 15° to 50° beam angle and, since the ARRIMAX does not require a set of spread lenses, shadows are sharp and easily cut.
18,000W Single Ended lamps use a sturdier GX51 lamp base for which ARRI engineers have designed a special lampholder. This new lampholder alleviates mechanical stress from the lamp pins, which now serve only as an electrical connection. The lamp clamping mechanism is self-aligning and uses a rugged, recessed lamp lock handle. To ensure that crews can easily use 12,000 W lamps or versions of 18 K Single Ended lamps with G38 bases, the new lampholder accepts either lamp type with no modification or adjustment required.
Briese Focus 180
The focus 180 makes the Briese-principle obvious. Fully focused it creates dramatic lighting with multiple screen differences between the centre and the edge of the picture. Almost like day and night. Perfect for strong accentuations. With just one setup you can create various lightning moods. Those characteristics and its versatility make the focus 180 to the favorite of many fashion photographer.
Lamp head: 6000W / 12000W
LTM 18K Fresnel
Having a “Big Gun” like this LTM Daylight 18K HMI fresnel light (with its 20-inch lens) in your lighting arsenal gives you the ability to produce a tremendous amount of light from one lighting source– whether used as a daytime fill source or for large nighttime setups. A large, powerful, single light source also eliminates the need to combine multiple light sources which eliminates the multiple shadow problem created by combining sources.
Joleko 400 & 800 (Bug-A-Beam)
The K 5600 BUG-LIGHT design offers so many possibilities it is tempting to ‘stick it’ in almost any optical system one runs across. One obvious and popular device is the ETC Source-4. This elegant design of a pattern and Gobo projector has showed up in various applications and is widely accepted throughout the entertainment industry.
The BUG-A-BEAM Adaptor is the part that makes the mating of a Source-4 and our Bug-Light 400 or 800 not only possible but quick and easy. The 400 (or 800) MSR/HMI lamp offers many advantages in this particular application, its 6 mm arc gap is punctual enough and very well suited for such optical design. The 4 to 1 efficiency ratio of HMI versus Tungsten incandescent explains the two full stops gain.
This huge increase in light level allows patterns to be visible in higher ambient light levels, longer distances as well as through the deepest color gels. K 5600 is continuously looking at expanding and promoting the use of its products and HMI in general for location work. The JOKER-BUG program equips the image-maker with a very versatile tool: a PAR fixture for directional lighting, a BUG for soft and lantern lights, a SOFTUBE for linear soft sources and now with the BUGABEAM Adaptor for a controllable high intensity beam projector.
Joker Bug 400 & 800 Par
The Joker-Bug 400 combines the characteristics of the BUG-LITE 400, a 400 Watt daylight HMI system without optics, with those of the JOKER 400, a PAR 46 fixture using a specular parabolic reflector and a set of 4 lenses. The JOKER-BUG 400 is comparable to a 1500/2000Wquartz fixture but with a power draw of only 5.5 Amps.
In the Bug-Lite mode (no optics) the main application is in traditional Lightbanks as well as Lanterns where it uses the sides as a large reflector, collecting the maximum output of the lamp and filling the front screen very evenly. It is very powerful in daylight interiors and can operate in any position including pointing straight down.
The BEAMER optical accessory turns the BUG-LITE into a JOKER-BUG, a directional PAR unit offering various beam patterns through quick lens changes. The JOKER-BUG 400 offers the most flexible optical configuration for location lighting by achieving Spot to Flood ratios of 80 to 1 with beam angles from as narrow as 5 degrees to as wide as 55 degrees.
The JOKER-BUG 400 is delivered with a Clear Glass Beaker when reaching for full intensity is important, and a Frosted Glass Beaker when light quality is the prime concern. The 400W MSR lamp was selected for its size/weight and the sizes/weights of the
components needed to operate it. The MSR lamp with its GZZ 9.5 base is considerably smaller than the next traditional Wattage, the 575 (G22 base); this in turn allows for more compact and shorter fixture design. The shorter arc gap of the 400 makes up for the difference of output between 400 and 575 and the lower Wattage does not require forced air cooling of the power supply.
The small, quiet ballast can be hidden anywhere and plugs in any circuit without risk of overloading. With the Slimverter 400 and two 30 volt batteries, the JOKER-BUG 400 is the largest 30 volt battery powered HMI. Motion Picture Gaffers and Freelance Cameramen have adopted the JOKER-BUG 400 for fine daylight interiors, car shots, two camera interviews, TV magazines, documentaries and industrials.
Because of the increasing use of Chimera® Lightbanks for fine daylight interiors, two camera interviews, TV magazines, and documentaries, we designed this fixture to take full advantage of the large reflective material inside a Lightbank. Utilizing our BUG™ “bare-bulb” design we can produce an amazing 50% more output than a JOKER 1200!
READY TO FLY
The JOKER-BUG 800 fits in one tiny airline case, weighing only 38lbs. The next wattage up (1200) is twice the size and weight. The actual size of the kit is exactly the same as a JOKER-BUG 400 Kit!
When working in practical locations such as homes, offices or business, power consumption is a key factor. The JOKER-BUG 800 will produce as much output as a 4,000 Watt quartz fixture with the power draw of only 11 Amps, never risk overloading a circuit again! The next size up (1200) monopolizes an entire circuit whereas the JOKER-BUG 800 will allow for another source such as a JOKER-BUG 400 on the same circuit!
