At IBC, Litepanels is debuting the Gemini, a new variant on its original 1×1 LED panel in a 2×1 form factor.
“Our customers have been asking for a wide, soft light source like the original, but in a 2×1 form factor,” said Litepanels co-founder Pat Grosswendt in a prepared statement. “Now, users not only have the convenience of achieving their desired lighting setup without having to gang together multiple lights, but they can also rest assured that Gemini, as a true RGB-WW panel, will light their talent with the industry’s most accurate white light.”
Gemini is designed to allow users to match ambient lighting quickly and easily, with the ability to make fine adjustments to color using an LCD menu interface. Litepanels said the unit offers three different lighting modes, each with full intensity control: Correlated Color Temperature mode for bicolor tungsten/daylight selection with a +/- green adjustment; Color mode with full hue and saturation; and Gel Mode for simulating different colors of gels.
The Gemini can be remotely controlled via DMX, wireless DMX or Bluetooth, the company said. By the end of the year, Litepanels is promising a mounting kit allowing multiple Gemini panels to be stacked vertically or horizontally.
The Litepanels Gemini is shipping now for an SRP of $4,440.
