ARRI has developed a new software platform that enables centralised monitoring, fault-finding, and management of broadcast studio lighting networks from anywhere.
ARRI LightNet helps users to see all elements across a broadcast studio lighting network—luminaires, consoles, network switches, splitters, nodes, etc.—by displaying all the relevant data in real-time on a single interface.
The software will work with contemporary studio facilities with both IP-based and DMX-controlled lighting systems, and is compatible with hardware from multiple manufacturers and established lighting protocols.
Its user interface can be run simultaneously on various client devices (the tablets, laptops etc) which can be based locally in the studio or production control rooms, or outside of the studio complex via a VPN.
ARRI LightNet can also be integrated into external central monitoring systems such as Zabbix or Prometheus via an external API.
