Litepanels has announced a new firmware update for its Gemini light, which now includes a new array of dynamic lighting and cinematic effects. Gemini is a 2x1 soft panel that delivers precision color control and flicker-free light in a highly portable LED panel.
The new Gemini firmware includes a new Lighting Effects mode for adding the following effects: TV, emergency lights, lightning, fire, hue burst, paparazzi, fireworks, party lights, pulsing, square, and strobe. All effects are fully customizable, giving users the ability to control rate, color, depth, and other factors to craft a unique look. Effects can be saved to presets for easy recall, and the presets can be saved to a USB drive for easy porting to other lights – ideal for rental customers who need to streamline setup for their rented lights.
"When we launched Gemini at IBC2017, we raised the bar for professional lighting by delivering a wide, soft light source in a 2x1 form factor with unmatched flexibility," said Alan Ipakchian, product marketing manager, Litepanels. "Gemini lights talent with the industry's most accurate white light, and this new firmware expands users' options for adding high-impact cinematic effects without the need of a console or effect box."
In addition to the new Lighting Effects mode, the 2x1 Gemini soft panel includes four additional lighting modes: Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) mode for bi-color (daylight to tungsten) with +/- green adjustment; a new RGBW mode that allows independent adjustment of red, green, blue, and white; HSI (hue saturation and intensity) control for full-color and saturation control; and Gel mode, providing the ability to dial up a variety of popular gels. All modes are accessible through an easy-to-use, intuitive LCD menu interface, and they offer users complete intensity control with smooth dimming from 100 percent to zero without any color shift.
The firmware itself can be updated from a USB drive, a process that takes about 20 seconds.
