Since the unveiling of ARRI’s new SkyPanel LED soft lights, ID’s Broadcast division has been able to put them to good use. ID was one of the first companies to test the ARRI S60C in a live broadcast environment in the US. These units were hand delivered by ARRI to the US Open Tennis Tournament in New York, and ID put them right to work for the Tennis Channel.Since then ID has used them on numerous shows for ESPN, Fox, Golf Channel and Sky Sports. “This is a great light with a lot of punch for an LED. The S60 is a great fill light and the S30 is a perfect fixture for the small announce booth applications” says ID’s Director of Broadcast Services – Rich Williams. The ARRI SkyPanel is fully tunable with a color range of 2,800 kelvin to 10,000K full, plus minus green can be achieved simply by turning a knob.
