The continuing popularity of the ARRILITE 2000 has inspired ARRI’s lighting team to undertake a complete redesign and update of this traditional, open-faced lamphead. Incorporating a range of innovative features, the new ARRILITE 2000 Plus meets the exacting production demands of today’s film and television industries. By utilizing the ARRIMAX reflector and optical system, light efficiency is increased and light distribution improved. The aluminum housing is more compact and about 400 g lighter than the previous model, while disc brake technology borrowed from the ARRI True Blue range holds the ARRILITE 2000 Plus steady even with heavy accessories attached. In order to change bulbs, the door opens in a similar way to the ARRI M18; no screws have to be removed and no tools of any kind are needed. Like the ARRILITE 750 Plus, the ARRILITE 2000 Plus features an improved focus mechanism and heat-proof handle at the rear of the housing that facilitates easy maneuvering.
