Once again, ETC is set to collaborate with distributor Avab
Transtechnik France for the annual JTSE show, taking place at Les Docks de
Paris on 21-23 November. Visitors to the Avab Transtechnik France stand –
140-141/162-163, Dock Pullman – will have the opportunity to check out some of
the latest lighting solutions from ETC. Meanwhile, JTSE lighting’s Black Box No 7, Dock Eiffel, will also be
dedicated to ETC products, giving visitors a chance to test some of the best
lighting equipment in optimal conditions.
Available for demonstrations in both spaces, you’ll find
ETC’s newest releases: the recently launched Ion Xe console, the brand
new ColorSource CYC, and
Cobalt version 8.0 software.
With compact footprints and full-featured Eos software, the
new Ion Xe and Ion Xe 20 consoles bring award-winning programming power to
smaller venues. Since the new consoles feature the same backlit keyboard layout
as their larger Eos family
siblings, workflow can transfer seamlessly from desk to desk. Accompanying the
consoles are the new Eos Fader Wings which provide 20 or 40 standard faders in
handy, USB-connectable modules that match – and are compatible with – all the
latest Eos family hardware.
Cobalt version 8.0
Engineered for lighting on-the-fly, the Cobalt line of control was
designed to rid the lighting process of unnecessary keystrokes and complicated
syntax. Cobalt software version 8.0 introduces several key features and
improvements, including a new multi-console network structure; a redesigned
graphic interface; a clone feature to copy show data from a single channel to
other channels; and a completely new Magic Sheet engine, giving users quicker
and more manageable control of their rig.
ColorSource CYC, a purpose-built cyclorama light, is bright,
compact and affordable. It’s also the first ColorSource fixture to add a fifth
colour to its LED array, incorporating indigo with the RGB-L mix to achieve
rich, theatrical hues. The CYC will be joining fellow family
members at the show, including ColorSource
Spot, PAR and Linear fixtures; ColorSource AV control desk; and ColorSource
Relay and ThruPower power control solutions.
In addition to the new releases, highlights in Black Box No
7 will include Source Four LED Series 2
luminaires, featuring ETC’s acclaimed x7 Color System; the architectural
luminaire Irideon FPZ; and,
from ETC Rigging,
Prodigy P2 hoist and QuickTouch controller. At both the stand and the Black
Box, knowledgeable teams from ETC and Avab Transtechnik France will be on hand
to provide demonstrations and to answer all of your questions.
