Arri has been a leading designer and manufacturer of professional camera and lighting equipment since 1917. The company was started in Germany by two aspiring cinematographers – August Arnold and Robert Richter – and was able to break into the US market by the 1920s.
One interesting fact about the Arri brand is that it was originally named ‘Arnold & Richter Cine Technik’ – before being shortened to ‘Arri’. The origin of the name was an abbreviation of the fist two two letters of the creators’ last names.
Arri has been recognized for its employees’ contributions to the motion picture industry by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences many times over the years – with 19 scientific and technical awards. One of the brand’s most recent accomplishments was its technology being used in several 94th Academy Award winning films, including: “Dune,” “CODA,” “The Power of the Dog,” and “Drive My Car” were captured using ARRI technology.
