Litepanels Launch Gemini 1x1 Hard RGBWW LED Panel

Litepanels, part of the Vitec Group, has added to its Gemini RGBWW LED panel range.

The Gemini 1x1 Hard RGBWW LED Panel delivers a bright output of over 3000 lux @10ft/3m “to produce the brightest and most accurate 1x1 panel ever.”

Like all LED panels in the Gemini range, Gemini 1x1 Hard produces “highly accurate full spectrum white light as well as full RGB output and a range of creative cinematic effects.” It weighs just 13.2 lbs (6kg), including yoke and power supply, and has a maximum draw of just 200W. It outputs 20% brighter than a 200W HMI.

“The exceptional output of the Gemini 1x1 Hard is possible because of our advanced lensing technology,” said Michael Herbert, product manager, Litepanels. “We tightly lens individual red, green, blue, tungsten and daylight LEDs to ensure that every bit of light emitted from each LED is captured and delivered forward. This individual separation of LEDs also lets heat dissipate easily and allows more power to run through them for greater output. No other RGBWW panel available produces as much light from such little power.”

The power of Gemini Hard, expands the creative potential of a 1x1 panel. With more power to command and control, users can choose a wider range of diffusion and creative light shaping tools, not possible with less powerful fixtures. Combined with full RGB control of over 16 million colors, 300 gels and 11 customizable special effects, the powerful Gemini 1x1 Hard is Litepanels’ most versatile LED panel ever.

Panalux, the leading supplier of lighting rental equipment for film, television, and media production, are first to take delivery of the new Gemini 1x1 Hard panels.

“We’re delighted to have secured the first ten Gemini 1x1 Hard fixtures to add to our rental fleet.” Said Dave Amphlett, Technical Director, Panalux.

“We already have over 500 Gemini 2x1 Soft panels and accessories and since we added them to the rate card at the beginning of 2019, we’ve seen rental demand grow. Gaffers and DOPs working on everything from commercials and drama to major features appreciate the benefits of high-quality white output, light weight, and its integrated power supply, and those are the features that make Gemini stand out from other similar products,” he added.
