The M8 is the latest and smallest lighting fixture in ARRI’s highly successful M-Series of HMI lampheads. Like the rest of the M-Series, the M8 is equipped with MAX Technology, a unique, patented reflector design that unifies the advantages of a Fresnel and a PAR fixture.
The combination of an open face design and the unrivalled efficiency of the MAX Technology reflector makes the M8 exceptionally bright; in fact, the light output produced by its 800 W lamp comes close to the output from a 1,200 W Fresnel or PAR (with lens). The unit can be focused between 15° and 60° just by turning the focus knob, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. By eliminating the need for bulky, easily breakable spread lenses, the M8 will speed up workflows on set.
The M18 is an 1,800 W open face lamphead, combining the Academy Scientific and Engineering Award-winning lens-less optical technology of the ARRIMAX with the innovative True Blue design. The result is an extremely powerful lamphead, as small as a 1,200W PAR but with a 70 % higher light output. The M-Series M18 fixture is adjustable from 20° to 60° without requiring spreader lenses.
A member of the ARRI M-Series, the M40 is a lens-less system that unifies the advantages of Fresnel and PAR fixtures. The unit is open face and thus very bright: around 30 % brighter than an AS40 in spot. Due to its unique, patented MAX Technology reflector, it is also focussable over a range of 18 to 52° Half Peak Angle. The M40 gives a remarkably even beam spread that casts crisp shadows over the whole focus range. The reflector characteristics is optimised for 4,000 W lamps, but can also be used with 2,500 W lamps.
The lamphead is equipped with a CCL module (Compensation of Cable Losses). When operated with the ARRI EB 2.5/4 kW High Speed AutoScan 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 indepent from cable length.
The M90 closes the gap between M40 and ARRIMAX 18/12, which sits almost exactly in the middle between the two. The unit is focusable from 15° up to 49° just by turning the focus knob, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. The elimination of spread lenses speeds up the workflow on set.
The 9,000 W lamp is very similar in size to the 6,000 W lamp, which makes the MAX Technology reflector function perfectly at both wattages. The superior housing and cooling concept have made a very compact design close to the dimensions of the ARRISUN 60.
Together with the latest electronic high speed ballast, EB 6/9 HS with AutoScan, this combination represents the state of the art daylight system for high quality images at high frame rates. All EB 6/9 kW ballasts are equipped with CCL module (Compensation of Cable Losses) enabling 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. Since the accompanying EB 6/9 kW ballast uses the housing of the current EB 6000 Baby, the 6 kW Head-to-Ballast cables are compatible and the whole system is highly efficient and delivers a light output close to a traditional 12 kW PAR (with lens) within the dimensions of a 6 kW PAR system – it punches above its weight!
The original Academy Award-winning ARRIMAX remains the ultimate choice for productions requiring maximum light output. The 580 mm (22.8”) 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.
Safe and easy for both lamp type bases 18/12 kW, 18,000 W single ended lamps use a sturdier GX51 lamp base for which ARRI engineers have designed a special lampholder that alleviates mechanical stress from the lamp pins, now serving 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 18,000 W single ended lamps with G38 bases, the new lampholder accepts either lamp type with no modification or adjustment.
Color temperature, tint and hue can be continuously adjusted from 2,800 K to 10,000K, between full plus or minus green and RGBW colors.
The L5 addition to the L-Series perfectly complements the L7, allowing for more mobile lighting and a wider range of power classes for television studios. Its compact size and low weight allow the L5 to be rigged in tight places and hung from low ceilings. The L5 is also ideal for cramped location shoots and interview setups. Low heat allows safer and more comfortable shooting conditions. This versatility and superb light quality make the L5 a highly anticipated addition to the award-winning L-Series family.
New features available on the L5 include a powerCON power connector and an on-board battery input that permits industry-standard batteries to power the L5 without any sacrifice in terms of features or light output. The resulting increase in portability opens up whole new application areas, giving productions with the L5 the tremendous freedom to move and work fast.
The L5 is approximately 45 % brighter than a 300 W tungsten Fresnel, but only consumes 115 watts. When compared to the L7, the L5 is half the weight and size.

The L10 is the brightest and largest L-Series lamphead to date. Its substantial 10″ Fresnel lens and powerful output allow for more distant fixture placement and the wrapping of light around objects in a natural and pleasing way. At more than twice the brightness of the L7, the L10 is also one of the brightest LED Fresnels on the market.
Tuneability is the cornerstone of all ARRI LED fixtures and much like the L7 and L5, its smaller counterparts, the L10 is fully color tuneable. With the ability to adjust the color temperature from 2,800 K to 10,000 K, as well as the green/magenta point, users have complete control over the color output of the fixture.
In a robust housing that combines aluminum with high-strength, fiberglass-reinforced thermoplastics, the L10 is designed to withstand the stresses of diverse professional environments, from motion picture sets to television studios and everything in-between. This robust construction allows the L10 to live up to the benchmark of rugged durability set by other ARRI lighting fixtures.
