Setting world standards in lighting panels
Litepanels, a Vitec Group brand, was founded in 2001 by five professional gaffers and engineers who saw the future and pioneered LED lighting for motion pictures, television, and the audio-visual industry.
Their Emmy award-winning technology has now been used on thousands of productions worldwide and is trusted by the world’s leading broadcast organisations.
Litepanels continues to expand its suite of flicker-free, colour-accurate, fully dimmable soft lights that talent and lighting directors admire.
Adopted by major broadcasters and movie studios around the world, these environmentally friendly panels can pay for themselves with power savings and long life, setting a new standard in professional lighting.
Gemini Soft LED Range
Gemini LED panels are the industry’s most accurate and versatile soft lights.
Gemini panels can be set up in an instant to begin producing true, flicker-free, full-spectrum white light for any frame rate, shutter angle, or intensity, making it perfect for high-speed photography and live broadcasts.
With the Gemini correlated colour temperature (CCT) mode, users can get accurate colour rendition across the entire 360-degree spectrum and fine-tune +/- green at the turn of a dial.
A lighting effects mode offers dynamic effects ranging from emergency lights, lightning and fire, to pulsing, square and strobe.
Other modes include RGBW for independent adjustment of red, green, blue and white, an HSI (hue saturation and intensity) mode for full-colour and saturation control and a gel mode with a variety of popular gels that complement both daylight and tungsten sources.
The versatile lightweight design of Gemini lights allows light to be rigged virtually anywhere requiring less cabling because the power supply is built-in.
These production-friendly soft panels deliver full-intensity output even when operated by battery power making them an ideal complement to any of the Anton/Bauer battery lines.
A dual-battery mounting plate allows Gemini to be powered from two Gold Mount or two V-Mount batteries such as Anton/Bauer’s Dionic XT.
Astra LED Panels
Litepanels’ next-generation Astra family of LED panels continues to build on the quality and popularity of the company’s original 1×1 panel.
The Astra 3X and 6X, available in both daylight or bi-colour models feature a 50 percent increase in output making them three and six times brighter than the original 1×1 panel.
The Astra Soft Bi-Colour provides flattering diffused lighting for a soft, wraparound light quality.
The Astra Bi-Focus Daylight offers users the ability to adjust from a 48-degree flood to a 15-degree concentration of light with the turn of a dial.
Astra’s high-performance LEDs and optics provide professional lighting designers with accurate colour temperatures, high CRI/TLCI colour rendering and beautiful light quality.
The Astra’s modular design features optional DMX and Bluetooth communication modules along with V-Mount or Gold Mount battery plates for mobile power when AC power is not available.
Sola LED Fresnel Panels
Litepanels’ daylight-balanced Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ LED fresnels combine all the benefits of today’s LED technology with the light-shaping, single-shadow properties of a traditional fresnel. The Sola 6+ is 50 percent brighter than the previous version, while the Sola 4+ is more than 120 percent brighter than its predecessor.
The Sola LED range provides 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 centralised 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 colour quality.
Like all of Litepanels’ LED lighting, the Sola and Astra ranges 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.
Litepanels is headquartered in Los Angeles, with sales offices in EMEA, the Americas, and Asia.
