The Litepanels Gemini is a 2'x1' LED soft light with programmable colour temperature, gel simulation and incorporates lots of fantastic effects including lightning simulation, police car light simulation etc.

It outputs 4,800lux at 5ft (5000K), which is 90% of a Skypanel S60 output and similar specification in a lighter fixture.

It is important to compare these two fixtures as it is not commonly known that the ARRI Skypanel S60 and Gemini offer the same functionality, however the Gemini 2x1 panel generates 90% of the Skypanel light output in a panel which draws less current and is appreciably lighter.  In fact when the skypanel ballast is added to the weight of the Skypanel, then the Gemini is actually 40% lighter at 10.2kg v 17kg (approx).

Full spectrum daylight and tungsten plus colour hue and saturation control means that it can also simulate over 100 well known lighting gels using its own setup controls.  Local or remote control via DMX, wireless DMX or bluetooth control. A very bright fixture with a maximum 325W power draw.

Like the ARRI Skypanel and Kino Celeb 250, the Gemini is truly versatile and permits local manual control or remote control via standard DMX 512 protocol or wirelessly with the option of wireless DMX or Bluetooth.

The manual control knobs are sensitive to the speed of rotation and can either be finely tuned or when ramped up can adjust very quickly. With its light weight design (10.1kg)

Mimics Regular Gel operation

In the Gel Mode, there are 6 x programmable presets and over 100 well-known lighting gels can be programmed.

HSI Colour Mode

HSI Color Mode allows for full color control over Hue, Saturation and Intensity

Full DMX and Wireless Control

Standard DMX and optional wireless DMX (details TBC) and bluetooth operation
