Stellar the lighting control app from ARRI

Stellar – the lighting control app from ARRI – provides a smart and innovative way to control professional lighting and is available on iOS and Android phones and tablets. Stellar reimagines lighting control by automatically taking care of complex DMX settings and by featuring control interfaces with beautifully designed graphics. Coded intelligence and advanced communication make connecting ARRI Orbiter, SkyPanel, and L-Series fixtures to the app simple and straightforward. After using Stellar, it will be difficult to go back to controlling lights in any other way.

Beauty is Power.

User Interfaces for Everyone.

Many lighting control devices rely on outdated and generic user interfaces. Stellar has been imagined from the beginning to have beautiful graphic interfaces that are tailored to the different ways of selecting color. Exploring colors in a native and intuitive design for a particular mode will make color selection effortless and fast. Complex color modes like x, y coordinates become more accessible and open up this powerful tool for everyone.

workflow fast and easy.

Stellar is the perfect app to quickly and easily control ARRI lights while on set. Whether a large film with many scenes and setups or a small project with just a few fixtures, Stellar is built to work in all scenarios. With a long list of feature additions already planned, Stellar will grow into a fully featured lighting control platform. Stellar is the “go-to” application for controlling ARRI LED fixtures as it seamlessly integrates functionality with great design making the task of adjusting lights effortless.

ARRI Lighting Ecosystem

The complete lighting package.

Stellar is the final link in a complete ecosystem of advanced lighting control products from ARRI. The SkyPanel features Art-Net, sACN, DMX, and RDM implementations for a wide range of control options. Combined with SkyLink, a large rig of SkyPanels can be controlled wirelessly with little effort. Stellar brings all these pieces together with intuitive controls that work seamlessly with the SkyLink, SkyPanel, and L-Series hardware. Creating a complex lighting network has never been simpler or easier to manage.

SkyLink offers a completely wireless solution via Wi-Fi and LumenRadio CRMX.

SkyPanel can be used as a full DMX/RDM gateway via Ethernet or Wi-Fi Router.

An Art-Net gateway can be used to create your DMX/RDM network.

Color Mode
Switching

Any color with a tap.

There are seven amazing ways to select color and lighting effects with the SkyPanel. With Stellar, it is possible to instantly switch between control modes so that a color can be chosen with an interface best suited for that mode. There is no need to worry about DMX footprints or addresses as Stellar’s backend takes care of this. Simply pick the color mode desired and adjust the output accordingly.

CCT mode changes color temperature and green/magenta point.

HSI mode changes the hue and saturation within one interface.

RGBW mode changes the red, green, blue, and white intensity levels with a color field or sliders.

x,y Coordinate mode changes the color based on the CIE 1931 chromaticity diagram.

Gel mode provides a searchable and sortable list of digital gels represented by color swatches.

Source Matching mode provides a scrollable list of real world light sources represented by their images and names.

Lighting effects mode provides a selection of seventeen lighting effects and adjustments of their parameters.

Bringing Gels to the L-Series

Stellar enables new control options for existing fixtures.

With Stellar, it is now possible to set gels and sources on all L-Series fixtures. Due to a L-Series hardware limitation, this was not possible in the past. Stellar’s powerful interface now can send gel and source matching color data in the background directly to the fixture. It is now possible to choose from over 300 gels and over 45 light source matching colors. This integration is seamless and a welcome addition to the feature set of the popular L-Series.

Auto Layout & Discovery

Stellar does the work so you don’t have to.

Stellar’s auto layout feature makes DMX patching a thing of the past. The app will automatically set the DMX start addresses for all fixtures and continue to manage the network in order to avoid any overlapping devices. Without the need to worry about DMX settings, there is more time to focus on the creative aspects of lighting. In addition, Stellar will navigate the DMX network for you. With the automatic discovery of fixtures, Stellar will search your DMX/RDM network and find every ARRI fixture connected to it. Simply assign the found devices to a project and start lighting. Whether it’s 10 fixtures, 100 fixtures, or more, Stellar can handle it.

Auto Layout
Stellar - Adjust color instantly

Stellar - The intelligent app.

During the discovery process, Stellar searches your DMX/RDM network for any and all ARRI LED fixtures. Once found, Stellar will gather information in order to assess the capabilities of all the fixtures. Auto Layout will automatically assign a DMX address and change the DMX mode of each fixture so no two fixtures are ever overlapping. If something changes in the network, Stellar will adjust all fixtures settings so the network remains collision free and in perfect working order.

Light Plot View

A much better way to select a light for control.

Light Plot View

select a light for control.

Stellar has the ability to import a lighting plot image so that fixtures can be laid out in a two-dimensional space. This visual reference provides ultra-fast selection of light fixtures based on where they are in real space. No more searching through lists, look up tables, or fixture addresses, just tap and control.

In Stellar, you can save hundreds of color and lighting effect favorites and bring them with you to every project. It is also possible to share one or all of your favorites with a colleague with a few simple taps.

Creating different lighting looks

lighting moods.

Creating different lighting looks is a key aspect of any lighting scene. Looks can be stored in Stellar which save all fixture settings and color selections. Switching between a day look and a night look has never been easier. Stellar will take care of switch color modes, settings, and output for all fixtures within a matter of moments.

User Feedback

    “This technology is significant. It allows DPs and gaffers to have far more control of lights on set. It is quicker because with one application on the tablet you can change the settings instead of having to go and manually adjust every single light. We believe it is the beginning of a significant trend.” Richard Lackey (Dubai, UAE)
    Business Development Manager and Academy Instructor of United Broadcast & Media Solutions (UBMS)
    “I love Stellar! It is a great addition to the ARRI Lighting eco-system. I feel like I have seen the evolution from the Stone Age of lighting to the digital world.” Mo Flam (USA)
    Chief Lighting Technician, lighting teacher, and trainer
    “For ARRI’s LED units, Stellar is wonderful and extremely useful for wireless control. The app is really easy to use and self-explanatory, and by using RDM instead of DMX, it is also unbelievably fast to set up. Stellar is intuitive, playful control at your fingertips.” Timm Brueckner (Berlin, Germany)
