The Arri M90 uses MAX technology for lens-free light projection. It is a light source whose lamp is 9000w and with a light intensity similar to 12KW HMI. Also available with 1000Hz frequency ballast to minimize flickering on super high speed shootings.
The Arri M90 source incorporates a lens less projection system (without lens) due to the efficiency of the built-in reflector. Its design belongs to the MAX technology and increases the intensity of light output by 30%.
M90 source basic kit
The HMI M90 is a source whose housing is equal in size to an Arri HMI 6KW but supports a 9000w lamp and provides a light intensity similar to a 12KW HMI. This appliance can also be used with 6000w lamps.
M90 Source Ballast
The ballast of the M90 source is practically the same size as the 6KW ballast but weighs a little more. Arri has 2 versions of ballasts compatible with this head and they differ in that one of them can be configured at 1000 Hz, enabling high speed recording without flickering. It also includes CCL technology that compensates for power loss per cable distance.
The M90 source can be used both indoors and outdoors, as it is designed with a robust construction and very resistant materials.
