The ARRI SkyPanel family of LED softlights have been recognised for “outstanding achievement in engineering development” at the 73rd Engineering Emmy Awards, with the jury recognising that SkyPanel fixtures have optimised the production lighting workflow and have been widely adopted throughout the TV industry.
Ivo Ivanovski, General Manager Business Unit Lighting at ARRI, said: “We would like to thank, not only the Television Academy, but also our many customers worldwide who have trusted SkyPanel for their productions and studios.
“We often hear filmmakers and lighting designers call the SkyPanel ‘the workhorse of the industry.’ Software features and accessories have helped to maintain the value of investment for our customers. Their feedback has always inspired us to continuously improve over the years and it will continue to drive us in the future.”
Since its introduction, the ARRI SkyPanel has been adopted for TV and feature productions worldwide and frequently used in numerous broadcast studios, at live events, fashion shows, and even art exhibitions.
Some notable shows illuminated with SkyPanel include recent four-time Emmy winner “Ted Lasso” (Apple TV+), the Netflix series “Dark,” “The L Word: Generation Q” (Showtime), “First Ladies” (CNN), and “Genius: Aretha” (National Geographic), along with multi-award-winning feature film “Blade Runner 2049”, the last two “Star Wars” productions, and many more.
The Engineering Emmy will be presented to ARRI at an awards ceremony on October 21, 2021, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, California.
