We Welcome the Arri M90 To Our Rental Inventory!

High Output is pleased to announce the addition of the Arri M90 fixtures to our rental inventory. The Arri M90 introduces a new power class of 9000 W!

arri_m90_01_tmb.png - 35615 Bytes       To close the gap between the M40/25 and the ARRIMAX 18/12, the M90 introduces a new power class of 9000 W. The unit is open-faced and very bright; it is also focusable from 16° up to 49°, producing a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. ARRI technology partner Osram developed a new 9,000 W lamp for the M90, which is stable at 1,000 Hz and almost as small as the 6,000 W lamp that can alternatively be used. This allowed ARRI to design the M90 in a very compact housing, barely larger than the ARRISUN 60.
