Can Esprit Gemini GM500s provide continuous light?

Hi, everyone.

Where I work, the photographers have 2 Esprit Gemini GM500s. They look really nice, but I can't use them for video if they don't provide continuous light.

My boss is adamant that there's a way to rig them to provide continuous light, and that he's seen it done. Yet, I'm equally unable to find the switch that makes that happen. Photography isn't my thing, though. Are they flash-only?

Yes these are flash only fixtures. They are equipped with a modeling lamp.
