Chimera Lighting Announces Tech Lightbanks for ARRI SkyPanel LEDs

As the need for LED light modifiers has grown, Chimera Lighting has created Tech Lightbanks for ARRI’s S30 and S60 SkyPanel LED fixtures.

Chimera said the Tech Lightbank for the smaller, ARRI SkyPanel S30 includes the lightbank body, mounting frame, full diffusion front screen, 1/2 and 1/4 grid front screens, 1/8 grid inner baffle and a storage sack.

Two options are available for the mid-sized ARRI SkyPanel S60: a shallow model, with a depth of 12-inches and a standard version, with a depth of 16 inches.

In addition to the lightbank body, both are bundled with a mounting frame, a full diffusion front screen, 1/2 and 1/4 grid front screens and a storage sack. The Shallow model also includes a 1/8 grid inner baffle.

A wide range of accessories — including various egg crate fabric and honeycomb metal grids, as well as barn doors — are available to complement and extend the Chimera Tech Lightbanks’ and ARRI SkyPanel LEDs’ versatility.

The lightbanks are currently available through ARRI.
