Лос-Анджэлес - верасень 12, 2017 - Litepanels(R), a pioneer in LED lighting for the film, photographic, and broadcast industries and a Vitec Group brand, today introduced the Litepanels Gemini XCHARX an all-new 2XCHARX1, RGB-WW soft panel that combines daylight, tungsten, and red-green-blue LEDs to deliver highly flexible and precise color adjustment. The Gemini soft panel produces true, full-spectrum white light and an extensive choice of control options designed to suit any professional lighting application. Visitors to IBC2017 will get an exclusive first look at GeminiXCHARXs high-quality light output on the Litepanels stand (12.E65).
XCHARXWhen we introduced our original 1XCHARX1 panel, we altered the lighting industry landscape forever and fundamentally changed the way DPs choose to light film and television projects. Our customers have been asking for a wide, soft light source like the original, but in a 2XCHARX1 form factor. We have delivered with Gemini, and weXCHARXve raised the bar for professional lighting once again,XCHARX said Pat Grosswendt, Co-founder of Litepanels and professional gaffer. XCHARXNow, users not only have the convenience of achieving their desired lighting setup without having to gang together multiple lights, but they can also rest assured that Gemini, as a true RGB-WW panel, will light their talent with the industryXCHARXs most accurate white light.XCHARX
Until now, users of most 2XCHARX1 panels have achieved white light by mixing red, green, and blue, which can create undesirable color spikes. Gemini eliminates this problem by giving users a daylight-to-tungsten light foundation and then enabling them to finely adjust color throughout the full, 360-degree color wheel. This means that users can match a broad range of ambient lighting conditions quickly and simply. One example might be shooting in an old warehouse with florescent lighting, where accurate white balancing could be easily achieved by adding or removing green.
Gemini offers this unmatched flexibility through its easy-to-use, intuitive menu interface with LCD screens in three lighting modes:
• Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) Mode, for bicolor (daylight to tungsten) with +/- green adjustment
• Color Mode, offering hue saturation and intensity (HSI) control for full color and saturation control
• Gel Mode, providing the ability to dial up a variety of popular gels
All three modes offer users complete intensity control with smooth dimming from 100 percent to zero without any color shift. Users can define presets to save their favorite lighting attributes, including intensity, for quick and convenient recall.
Gemini offers flexible remote control through DMX (5-pin XLR or RJ45), Wireless DMX (both using standard 512 protocol), or Bluetooth, an industry first. Gemini can be remotely controlled using the Litepanels SmartLite or SmartLite Director apps for Apple devices.
Recent independent testing demonstrated that Gemini delivers outstanding photometric performance, measuring TLCI/CRI levels of 97 in daylight and 99 in tungsten. This means that lighting professionals can reliably achieve exceptional color and realistic skin tones XCHARX ultimately eliminating the need for color correction and saving postproduction time and money.
With its on-board power supply, Gemini is significantly lighter than competing panels that require an external ballast. Without the need for external power components, the panel is significantly more agile, allowing it to be transported easily and rigged rapidly with fewer cable connections. Gemini panels can also run from battery power (3-pin XLR 28 VDC), or power can be daisy-chained from other devices using an industry-standard powerCON connection.
“The color quality of the Litepanels Gemini allows me to precisely match existing tungsten lighting sources in a variety of applications, especially when dimming. I can dim all the way to zero, which is incredible,” said award-winning cinematographer Andrew Dunn, BSC. “My gaffer, Jose Ruiz, and I find rigging the Gemini incredibly easy. Its output compared to its weight makes it even more extraordinary, giving us on-set versatility that is a tremendous time-saver.”
Dunn added, “Gemini works well as a bounce, and it’s soft enough to be used as a fill for our talent. For one particular film, we were able to use Gemini to bring out the inner beauty of our leading ladies and make them feel (and know) that they were being lit in the best possible light. Plus, the ability to dial in a range of unique colors and smash them into a background so easily brought depth, texture, and interest to the scene.”
Like all Litepanels products, Gemini is complemented by a full line of light-shaping accessories, such as honeycomb grids and barn doors, to offer users extra creative lighting control. By the end of this year, Litepanels will release a mounting hardware kit that will enable customers to stack multiple Gemini panels either vertically or horizontally.
The Litepanels Gemini 2XCHARX1 panel is now available at a suggested retail price of $4,440 (4,200 euros).
