At IBC, Chimera has introduced new lanterns that feature omnidirectional lighting from Arri’s Skypanels S30 and S60 Lights.
Chimera said the lanterns provide easy control when placing light fixtures overhead. The included skirt attaches to enable control over the beam and spill. The skirt can be rolled up or down using the zippers. Velcro on all four sides vary the beam spread from an omnidirectional source.
The Chimera Lanterns for the Arri Skypanels are available exclusively through Arri and their authorized dealers. As is with all Chimera Lightbanks, the lanterns are 100 percent handcrafted in the United States.
