Functional Overview

GEMINI. A dual-purpose effects fixture.

The ACME GEMINI fixture is a dual-functional, bar and strobe fixture with no limits. Whether your needs are a pan and tilt zoomable color light bar or bright strobe fixture the GEMINI provides both in a compact, form-factor luminaire.

The fixture's front five cells are each equipped with a powerful 60-Watt RGBW LED. The rear of the head, the strobe section, has 36, cool white LEDs for strobes up to 41,000 lumens. The unit's zoom range for the color section goes from a narrow 2.8 o to a wide 46 o for even fields of light and deep, homogeneous colors. The strobe section offers 18 individually controllable zones for unparalleled effects.

The GEMINI fixture offers seven different DMX control modes from basic operation to sophisticated individual pixel-control effects. For users wanting simpler control, the unit has preprogrammed colors and macros with popular colors and eye-catching effects saving you programming time.

In addition to its powerful effects and strobes, the unit has infinite pan and tilt operation making it like no other light bar or strobe on the market. The unit is lightweight and compact and is perfect for any application from touring to fixed installations and everything in between.

The GEMINI LED fixture – because two is better than one.
