Gemini rising to lighting demands

Publish date:

Gemini is a new 2x1, RGB-WW soft panel that combines daylight, tungsten and red-green-blue LEDs to deliver precise colour control.

Pat Grosswendt, co-founder of Litepanels, and professional gaffer, said: “Our customers have been asking for a wide, soft light source like the original [1x1 panel], but in a 2x1 form factor. Now users have the convenience of achieving their desired lighting setup without having to gang together multiple lights.”

Many 2x1 panels achieve white light by mixing red, green and blue, which can create undesirable colour spikes. Gemini builds on a daylight-to-tungsten light foundation with finely adjustable colour throughout the full 360º colour wheel. This means that users can match a broad range of ambient lighting conditions quickly and simply.

There are three lighting modes: correlated colour temperature mode, for bicolour (daylight to tungsten) with +/- green adjustment; colour mode, offering hue saturation and intensity control for full colour and saturation control; and gel mode – to dial up popular gels.

Other features include: smooth dimming from 100 per cent to zero without any colour shift; remote control through DMX, Wireless DMX or Bluetooth (claimed to be an industry first), and via SmartLite iOS apps.
