GI-Lite - a highly controllable lighting system aimed at providing optimal lighting conditions for the accurate capture of head scan data for use in 3D / 4D, CG and VFX.


The GI-Lite is a compact and portable 2 meter diameter geodesic sphere. It is capable of 156 independent lighting directions from 312 individually controllable high power LEDs.


It can be configured to display spherical lighting gradient sequences or other

lighting states as required.


Polarising or other filters may be quickly added/removed as required.


Outputs sync the capture cameras to the playback sequence or alternatively a Tri-sync input is provided to sync the GI Lite's playback to an external sync generator.



The GI-Lite may also be controlled by DMX.
