The Pocket PAR 200W and 400W and the Pocket Lite 200W and 400W are the latest in Arri, Inc.'s line of small Pocket PAR location lighting fixtures. The 200W and 400W Pocket PARs, like the original 125W fixture, have custom-designed dichroic glass flatted reflectors and matching spread lenses for precise beam control. The 200W fixture comes with a four-lens set, and the 400W has a fifth lens. The 200W and 400W Pocket Lites, intended for news-gathering or other "run-and-gun" situations, are lensless daylight fixtures with matte-finish dichroic glass reflectors. The fixtures provide a smooth field with focusing from 14° to 70°. Arri introduced the new lighting products, along with the Arriflex 435 advanced camera system, Arricam system, and Arrimotion motion control system, at NAB 2001.
