Located in Munich, Germany, Arnold and Richter Cine Technik was founded in 1917 and is the largest manufacturer of professional motion picture equipment in the world. Throughout its 95-year history, ARRI has been associated with constant innovation and revolutionary technologies in all of its core businesses. The company is involved in all aspects of the film industry: engineering, design, manufacture, production, visual effects, postproduction, equipment rental, laboratory services and studio lighting solutions. Manufactured products include cameras, lighting fixtures and digital postproduction tools.
For its camera applications, ARRI was looking for the right partner to deliver the connecting solutions. Weight, robustness of the connector and cable and the possibility of using the equipment in harsh environments played an extremely important role in ARRI's decision making process. Fischer Connectors was able to supply ARRI with the right solution.
