Stellar, Arri only?

Sat Oct 06, 2018 3:16 am

I'm glad to hear about Stellar and have a few questions:
Is it compatible with RatPac AKS?
Can I control other than Arri lights (rat packs 6x2.4 and 12x200's)?

Thank you
Aloha!!

Hi Raimar,

Thanks for your post.

Stellar is not compatible with the RatPac AKS because the AKS does not support RDM. Stellar uses RDM to discover and communicate with ARRI fixtures so it is required that all network devices support RDM.

However, this is the reason we developed the SkyLink. SkyLink uses LumenRadio and a WiFi radio to give you full wireless control plus it is fully RDM compatible so it, of course, works with Stellar.

Stellar only controls ARRI SkyPanel and L-Series fixtures. With ARRI fixtures we were able to have a completely seamless integration with the app. In the future, it might be possible to control third party fixtures. We will be looking into this. Thanks for your support and please let us know if you have any further questions.

Is the app compatible with other RDM-capable transmitters such as the Nova FX or TX2?

Hi mdrohn,

Yes, Stellar should with with other RDM capable LumenRadio transmitters such as the LumenRadio Nova FX and TX2. However, extensive testing has not been done with these devices.

Hope this helps and please let us know if you have more questions.
