Rent Arri M18 1.2K / 1.8K Watt HMI Light with High Speed Ballast in New York City.
ARRI’s M18 HMI Lamp Head With High Speed Ballast Ballast Kit (Multi-voltage) is an open-face, lensless, efficient lamp head. It was built to work with a new power class of lamp — the 1800W and 1200W SE HMI. These have an average life of 750 hours, a luminous efficacy of 92 lumens/watt, and a Color Rendering Index (CRI) greater than 90 at 6000K. Furthermore, DMX control and ALF together produce much more efficient power use in an already very efficient lighting fixture. The M18 combines the best aspects of a PAR and a Fresnel. This means it creates diverging rays of light to produce a very crisp shadow. This fixture is supplied for use with 90-125/180-250VAC. Finally, this lamp has a beam angle (HPA) of 20 to 60°, with a wide usable field angle.
Take a look at what Arri has to say about this light –
“The M18 is an 1,800 W open face lamphead, combining the Academy Scientific and Engineering Award-winning lens-less optical technology of the ARRIMAX with the innovative True Blue design. The result is an extremely powerful lamphead, as small as a 1,200W PAR but with a 70 % higher light output. The M-Series M18 fixture is adjustable from 20° to 60° without requiring spreader lenses.” – Arri
