ARRI announces its new top-of-the-line stabilised remote head, the 360 Evo. Building on the success of the SRH-360, it features 360-degree rotation on the roll axis as well as the pan axis, a more robust design, and remote system integration. A new GUI and multiple accessories are shared with the Trinity 2, creating a uniquely integrated lineup of hard and soft-mounted stabiliser options.
Since the launch of Trinity 2, operators have been exploring the creative opportunities provided by its 360-degree rotation on the roll axis, revolving around the optical centre of the lens. Now, the same technology has been scaled up for the ARRI 360 Evo three-axis stabilised remote head, opening up new shot possibilities for dramas, commercials, and music videos. Even more dynamic roll-axis shots can be achieved by mounting the head to a crane, for example, or a cable cam above a live broadcast event.
The 360 Evo runs on the same software platform as Trinity 2, with the same popular and intuitive GUI displayed on its touchscreen remote control panel. The two products also share cables, brackets, and SAM plates for mounting different cameras, and can be controlled by the same tools, such as ARRI’s Digital Remote Wheels DRW-1 and new Digital Encoder Head DEH-2. Trinity 2 customers can therefore invest in the 360 Evo without having to double up on accessories or learn new workflows. By offering both systems professionals can extend their services to a production, increase their workdays, and reduce setup times, which is also of great benefit to the production itself.
LBUS connectivity enables efficient digital and metadata workflows, while the new software and GUI are focused on long-term Unreal Engine integration to facilitate virtual production. Plug-and-play control of the 360 Evo over the internet will be possible in future when using an authorised repeater cloud service, providing exceptional flexibility of control options.
With its remote system integration, 360-degree roll-axis rotation, payloads up to 30 kg, compact size, versatile connectivity, high-capacity 12/24 V camera power supply, and rock-steady stabilization even at long focal lengths, the 360 Evo offers an unparalleled price-performance ratio that makes it a budget-friendly product for the cine and broadcast markets.
First customer shipments of the 360 Evo, as well as upgrades for SRH-360 owners, will begin in Q1 2024.
