Litepanels Raises the Bar with Gemini

Litepanels is a pioneer in LED lighting for the film, photographic, and broadcast industries. They introduced Litepanels Gemini, an all-new 2×1, RGB-WW soft panel that combines daylight, tungsten, and red-green-blue LEDs to deliver highly flexible and precise color adjustment.

The Gemini soft panel produces true, full-spectrum white light and an extensive choice of control options designed to suit any professional lighting application.

Until now, users of most 2×1 panels have achieved white light by mixing red, green, and blue, which can create undesirable color spokes. Gemini eliminates this problem by giving users a daylight-to-tungsten light foundation and then enabling them to finely adjust color throughout the full, 360-degree color wheel. This means that users can match a broad range of ambient lighting conditions quickly and simply.

Gemini offers this unmatched flexibility through its easy-to-use, intuitive menu interface with LCD screens in three lighting modes:

* Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) Mode, for bicolor (daylight to tungsten) with +/- green adjustment.

* Color Mode, offering hue saturation and intensity (HSI) control for full color and saturation control

* Gel Mode, providing the ability to dial up a variety of popular gels

Like all Litepanels products, Gemini is complemented by a full line of light-shaping accessories, such as honeycomb grids and barn doors, to offer users extra creative lighting control. By the end of this year, Litepanels will release a mounting hardware kit that will enable customers to stack multiple Gemini panels either vertically or horizontally.

The Litepanels Gemini 2×1 is now available at a suggested retail price of $4,440 (4,200 euros).
