There is also a new double bracket available so you can use two S60-C SkyPanels with the Octa 4.

ARRI has also announced a new B-Mount battery adapter for the SkyPanel lights. B-Mount was developed by ARRI and Bebob. B-Mount is a 24 Volt Battery Mount solution. ARRI is also looking into the feasibility of being able to use two 24 Volt B-Mount batteries so they could power an S60-C or S120-C at full power.
