ARRI marks M18's 10th anniversary
- MUNICH, Germany
To mark the 10th anniversary of its M18 daylight lamphead, ARRI is offering a special edition of the fixture, limited to 500 units. The lampheads, printed with the anniversary logo on the housing, are being shipped starting this month.
The M18 was presented for the first time in 2009 at the IBC as the second model of the M-Series after the large ARRIMAX. The compact, powerful 1,800 W daylight lamphead combines the optical system of the ARRIMAX--which received a Scientific and Engineering Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences--with the design of the True Blue Series.
Since its launch, the M18 has enjoyed great popularity. Recently, it provided light for the feature film productions Dunkirk and Sauerkrautkoma as well as for the series Dark, Parfum, and The Alienist. Even after 10 years, no significant changes have been made to the certified system.
