GEMINI Series

Gemini and Wireless DMX

What you need to get your Gemini LED panel connected to a CRMX transmitter

The only Gemini panel with built-in CRMX is the 2x1 Hard. For the other models (1x1H, 1x1S, 2x1S) you will need the Gemini Wireless DMX Dongle from Litepanels. This module uses the LumenRadio TimoTwo chip which provides both CRMX and Bluetooth connectivity through the expansion port on the Gemini panel.

Once installed there are only a few steps to get connected. These are:

  • Choose LR CRMX in the COMMS SELECT menu

  • Enable the dongle's Radio

  • Link the dongle to a wireless dmx transmitter
