Litepanels Launches Gemini 1x1 Soft

The LED fixture weighs 11.7 pounds and draws a maximum of 200 watts, making it an agile solution.

Litepanels has introduced the Gemini 1x1 Soft, a cine-quality LED light that weighs 11.7 pounds and draws a maximum of just 200 watts.

Gemini 1x1 Soft offers the accurate full-spectrum white light associated with all Litepanels fixtures and, as a full RGBWW light, delivers every color in the 360-degree color wheel and plus/minus green adjustment — all in a single lightweight fixture.

The unit’s compact power supply means it is fast and easy to rig. Users can instantly switch the light from AC power to battery power (using V-Mount, Gold Mount or XLR output batteries) and maintain similar lighting intensity. 

“Until now, achieving all [this] meant using a much heavier and more expensive fixture,” says Litepanels Product Manager Byron Brown. “With Gemini 1x1 Soft, we have levelled the playing field; now, independent filmmakers and smaller studio productions have access to the high-end features previously reserved for studios and productions with big budgets.” 

Gemini 1x1 Soft builds on a foundation of daylight-to-tungsten light, providing accurate white light together with flexible, precise color adjustment. These features make it ideal for lighting talent and rendering skin tones, giving users the ability to match a broad range of ambient lighting conditions quickly and easily.

Users have control through four lighting modes: CCT Mode, for true daylight and tungsten with fine tuning; HSI Mode, to create any color in the 360-degree spectrum; Gel Mode, to dial up gels in seconds; and Effects Mode, for an array of lighting effects.

Gemini 1x1 Soft is ready to go right out of the box — no assembly required. In addition to its onboard controls, the LED offers a broad range of control options, including DMX, wireless DMX and Bluetooth, for easy integration into an existing lighting setup.It provides smooth dimming from 100 percent to 0.1 percent with no flicker and without losing color consistency.

Gemini 1x1 Soft is available now for a list price of $2,650.
