Where NAB announces, the SMPTE Australia exhibition delivers and ARRI Australia this year is truly embodying that mantra. SMPTE will take place at the ICC Darling Harbour from 18-21 July with ARRI taking stand E51. ARRI will have guest presenters including SkyPanel product manager Mike Wagner from the USA and ALEXA Mini product manager Michael Jonas from Germany on their stand and will host a drinks and networking evening with lighting partners Barbizon on Thursday 20 July.
At the show, visitors can get up-close and personal with the myriad of award-winning products and services ARRI has to offer the industry. ARRI will be delivering a number of important technical advances to its Australian customers and partners at SMPTE. ARRI’s ALEXA SXT camera has gone wireless in 2017, therefore becoming the company’s first entirely wireless professional motion picture camera system. Furthermore, ARRI will be delivering Software Update Packages for their AMIRA and ALEXA Mini cameras. There’s also the new ARRI Look Library, an innovative new feature in these updates, which now establishes a standardised repertoire of looks making it easier than ever for cinematographers to work with a variety of looks during production.
ARRI will also present new Pro Camera Accessories at SMPTE 2017 and ARRI’s lighting range, which has also made great strides in 2017, will be fully represented. The already popular SkyPanel family of LED soft lights with its third major firmware update will be on display along with a new high-speed ballast.
