Gemini 2x1 SoftPanel

At LDI 2018,Litepanels will showcase Gemini, the industry's most accurate and versatile 2x1 soft panel.Gemini can be set up in an instant to beginproducing true, flicker-free, full-spectrum white light for any frame rate, shutter angle, or intensity, making it perfect for high-speed photography and live productions.

Making its debut at LDI will be a new dual-battery plate for the Gemini soft panel. This battery-mount attachment allows Gemini to be powered from two Gold Mount or two V-Mount batteries, such as Anton/Bauer’s Dionic XT.The battery plate will be available for purchase in December.

With Gemini’s correlated color temperature (CCT) mode, users can get accurate color rendition across the entire 360-degree spectrumand fine-tune +/- green at the turn of a dial. An all-new lighting effects mode offers dynamic effects ranging from emergency lights, lightning, and fire, to pulsing, square, and strobe. Other modes includeRGBW for independent adjustment of red, green, blue, and white;an HSI (hue saturation and intensity) mode for full-color and saturation control; and a gel mode with a variety of popular gels that complement both daylight and tungsten sources.

The versatile Gemini’s lightweight design allows the light to be rigged virtually anywhere, requiring less cabling because the power supply is built-in. This production-friendly soft panel delivers full-intensity, mobile-powered operation with the Anton/Bauer Cine VCLX battery.

Sola LED Fresnel Panels

Also on display at LDI2018 will be Litepanels’ daylight-balanced Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ LED fresnels, combining all the benefits of today's LED technology with the light-shaping, single-shadow properties of a traditional fresnel. The Sola 6+ is now 50 percent brighter than the previous version, while the Sola 4+ is now more than 120 percent brighter than its predecessor. The Sola LED rangeprovides cool daylight illumination with the unique ability to control both focus and intensity via standard DMX 512 protocol. In addition, Sola lights give lighting designers complete control over aspects such as focus and intensity, all from a centralized control board.

Both the Astra and Sola series are ideal complements to the Gemini panels, adding functionality and versatility to an overall lighting design while maintaining exceptional color quality. Like all of Litepanels’ LED lighting, the Sola and Astra families are flicker-free regardless of frame rate, shutter angle, or intensity level, and they offer smooth dimming from 100 percent intensity all the way down to zero. Improved low-end dimming enables lighting to be reduced as much as necessary for extreme low-light requirements.
