First Look: Litepanels Gemini LED

The new Litepanels Gemini is an update on the classic softlight source for the LED age. In this video, I'll take a look at the features of this new lamp, including a brief preview of the overall character of the light it provides.

Litepanels has gone beyond their familiar bi-color models for this 2x1 LED source with three color modes that allow for very fine control. In the CCT mode, the light has selectable color temperature, ranging from 2700K to 6000K with an excellent CRI of 97 and 99 at 5600K and 3200K, respectively. In addition, Litepanels has added a hue, saturation, and intensity mode, or HSI, which allows for full RGB control and dimming from 0.1% to 100%.

The Gemini can fit into many workflows with the ability to digitally gel, DMX control (wired, wireless, or Bluetooth), and daisy-chain the light using a master/slave configuration. All of these features are packed into a lightweight 22-pound housing that maintains a battery operable power draw (using a 3-pin XLR input), or in through standard 12 volt power off of a regular Edison socket, which plugs directly into head due to the ballast-free design.

I spoke with Alan Ipakchian from Vitec Group to see what’s new with Litepanels’ line of industry-standard LED fixtures. Their new Astra models offer increased brightness over the original 1×1 Astra; the Astra 3X and Astra 6X provide, as you might guess, 300% and 600%, respectively, of the 1st generation panels’ output.
