The ARRI SkyPanel X21 offers native soft and hard light technology, setting a new bar not only in terms of dimming and colour science, but also in lux output and beam quality for medium to long throws. The SkyPanel X is an all-weather lighting solution tailored to existing workflows.

Your All-Weather Lighting Solution

With a IP66 rating, the SkyPanel X has been engineered for resilience against rain, storms, and even cleaning with high-pressure washers, these lights embody innovation, reliability, and durability.

X21 Dome – For Native Soft Light

The X21 Dome is a simple, high-quality diffuser that can be mounted on the X21 lamphead with ease. This convenient tool is included with every X21 and is fully compatible with third-party accessories.

HyPer Optic – For a Brighter, Longer, Rounder Beam

S60 Adapter – Iconic Soft Lighting Just Got Better

With an optional S60 Adapter fitted to its front, the X21 is compatible with all SkyPanel S60-C accessories. Established SkyPanel workflows remain unchanged, amplified by the latest lighting innovations.

Modular System

The SkyPanel X’s Twin Quick Lock bracket allows for infinite modularity. This is a tool-ness system allows you to easily upgrade your lighting setup. Daisy-chain power and data through each panel, eliminating multiple power cables and DMX profiles.
