This ARRI SkyPanel X21 Modular LED Panel  measures 29.1 x 13.3" and features a full-spectrum RGBACL color engine, 1500-20,000K CCT range, accurate color rendition, numerous wired and wireless control options, and it sports an IP66 rating for performance in all weather conditions. It also features a built-in power supply unit for portability, and power can be daisy-chained with other SkyPanel X units to create expanded lighting grids. The SkyPanel X is also compatible with all S60 accessories using an optional adapter.

All-Weather Design

The SkyPanel X is your all-weather lighting solution. Engineered and IP66 certified for resilience against rain, storms, and cold water pressure washers, these lights embody innovation, reliability, and durability.

  • Adaptable for traditional SkyPanel techniques and the new X21 Dome
  • Create 8-pixel patterns for effects
  • Efficient and simplified workflow for quick and easy setup

Hard Light

  • The light outputs an optimal rounded beam with maximum punch and quality
  • Create a long-throw fixture with high-performance Skypanel HyPer Optic
  • Higher output than a 2.5kW open-face HMI lamp when used in the X23 configuration
  • Unique pixel looks
  • Ideal on a cherry picker, through windows, or bounced

Modular Experience

  • Upgrade your lighting setup easily with modular SkyPanel X units
  • Get a reliable power supply for all lights via a single daisy-chained power cable
  • Benefit from toolless frames with a quick-lock system

Control Options

Explore the multiple control options for SkyPanel X, including the robust all-weather control panel, ARRI's new LiCo App for Bluetooth control, LumenRadio's wireless integration, DMX-512A, RDM, Art-Net 4, sACN, LAN IP, CRMX Classic, CRMX2, W-DMX G3 / G4 / G4S / G5, BLE, and Native Bluetooth 5.0.


With LiOS3, many new software features away, such as one single DMX profile when used in X22 or X23 configurations, new DMX presets, and new ARRI ALEXA modes.

SkyPanel X Digital Twin

ARRI's SkyPanel X digital twin represents the forefront of digital innovation, offering precise virtual lighting simulations. ARRI's digital twin technology transforms cinematic lighting workflows from preproduction to postproduction.

Featuring 3D models, authentic characteristics, and intuitive interfaces, it equips filmmakers with advanced tools. Visualize, manage, and collaborate effortlessly, boosting efficiency, consistency, and creativity in film production.


The X21 can be used with soft light close to the talent in low-end, flicker-free dimming conditions while adjusting the X21's color science to the ALEV 3 and ALEV 4 sensors of ARRI ALEXA cameras with the ARRI ALEXA modes.

The SkyPanel X when paired with the HyPer Optic delivers a punchy light source, ideal through windows with diffusion. It offers an alternative to traditional point-source lights since you get the punch and rounded beam but with all the advantages of LED lights.
