Litepanels to Upgrade Gemini 2x1 Soft Panel for NAB 2018
Litepanels will introduce a new firmware upgrade for its Gemini soft panel light that allows for a variety of cinematic effects such as emergency lights, fire, TV and hue bursts that are fully customizable and that can be easily saved to presets.
Litepanels said Gemini eliminates the need for color correction by offering full-spectrum white light that's useful for lighting talent and rendering exceptional color. Lighting professionals can use any color in the 360-degree color wheel and popular gels within Gemini's color modes.
Gemini's versatile, ballast-free, lightweight design allows the light to be rigged easier, requiring less cabling because the power supply is built in. This soft panel delivers full-intensity, mobile-powered operation with the Anton/Bauer CINE VCLX battery.
Users can operate every function of Gemini using its on-board controls and user interface with multiple control options. Integrated DMX ports enable users to choose between using five-pin XLR or RJ45 connections, all supporting standard 512 protocol.
Also at NAB, Litepanels will show its next-generation Astra family of LED panels. The new Astra 3X and 6X — available in both daylight or bi-color models — feature a 50 percent increase in output, making them three and six times brighter than the original Astra.
The Astra Soft Bi-Color provides flattering diffused lighting for a soft, wrap-around light quality. The Astra Bi-Focus Daylight is the newest addition to the popular Astra family, giving users the ability to adjust from a 48-degree flood to a 15-degree concentration of light with the turn of a dial.
Astra's high-performance LEDs and optics provide professional lighting designers with accurate color temperatures, high CRI/TLCI color rendering, and beautiful light quality. The Astra family's modular design features optional DMX and Bluetooth communication modules, along with V-Mount or Gold mount battery plates for mobile power when AC power is not available.
