Munich, February 14, 2022 – ARRI announces the expansion of the ARRI Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program. With immediate effect, the motion picture equipment manufacturer also offers selected pre-owned and refurbished lighting fixtures for sale.

“We are excited to add lighting products to the ARRI Approved Certified Pre-Owned program,” says Stephan Schenk, Managing Director of ARRI Cine Technik and General Manager Global Sales & Solutions at ARRI. “With this additional tier to our lighting portfolio, we are providing a more cost-effective option to access our technology. It also gives educational institutions a great opportunity to provide high-quality equipment for their students.”


ARRI’s attention to detail combined with more than 100 years of experience with user requirements, set and studio conditions, have resulted in generations of products that are robust, reliable, and long-lasting. Under the ARRI Approved Certified Pre-Owned program selected lamp heads undergo thorough assessments, are given careful overhauls during the refurbishing process, and are tested in detail before they receive ARRI’s stamp of approval. Mechanical defects are repaired, electrical and electronic components updated, and worn-out parts replaced. The light source of each LED lighting fixture is checked against factory specifications and replaced if necessary. Lastly, each lighting fixture receives the latest firmware before the equipment goes through a final function test to ensure full functionality.


Christian Richter, General Manager Sales & Solutions EMEAI and Global Manager Certified Pre-Owned Equipment at ARRI, confirms that this program delivers reliability, affordability, and dependability.

“Expanding the program to include lighting products was the logical next step after our initial success with the CPO program. We are delighted that we can now offer an even broader portfolio and give more creatives access to tools that will enable them to work their illumination magic,” he adds. “ARRI CPO customers can be sure that they are not sacrificing performance for price; all selected ARRI approved CPO products come directly from the manufacturer and are backed by ARRI’s warranty. ARRI CPO lighting products are backed by a two-year warranty while all other ARRI CPO offerings come with a one-year warranty.”
