Accessories have been launched for Litepanels' Gemini 2x1 LED soft panel
Litepanels has added three accessories for its Gemini 2x1 LED soft panel: a dual battery bracket for either Gold Mount or V-Mount batteries, a floor-stand kit and a soft-sided carry case.
The dual battery bracket aims to make the Gemini 2x1 more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including use in a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. The dual battery bracket is available in either a Gold Mount or V-Mount version, each supporting two batteries in sizes ranging from 90–190W per hour, including Anton/Bauer’s Dionic XT on-board cinema and broadcast batteries. The bracket has also been designed to regulate power output to ensure maximum battery life for the Gemini 2x1 and includes a connecting cable.
Released last year, the Gemini 2x1 is a white light, offering ‘precision colour control’ and an array of lighting and cinematic effects and flicker-free output in a portable LED panel for easier rigging at on-location shoots.
Previously, the mobile power option was a heavy, freestanding cine battery resting on the floor. The new dual battery bracket changes the equation by enabling users to power a Gemini panel by mounting two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries directly to the light’s yoke or stand.
The new floor-stand kit for Gemini 2x1 is suited for settings where floor mounting is desired and includes all hardware necessary to connect the Gemini 2x1 Soft panel to the supports. The carry case includes a durable zippered closure, an accessory bag and a shoulder strap.
