ETC is getting ready for this year's Prolight + Sound tradeshow in Frankfurt, Germany, March 12th to 15th, where we will unveil a host of new products.
Following the hugely successful launch of the Cobalt™ 20 desk at the PLASA tradeshow, ETC is expanding the range with the Cobalt 10 desk, which will be available for stand visitors to play with. The desk brings the power of Cobalt 20 to a compact, road-ready footprint, with ten motorized faders.
There is also an opportunity before the show to win a Cobalt ETCnomad™ dongle, which lets you experience Cobalt from your own PC. You can program your own show from a range of four different one-minute music tracks, and then have it reviewed by a panel of judges. Visit
for more information and to enter the contest. All entrants will receive free entry to the Prolight + Sound tradeshow.
ETC's stand will include a large cyclorama rigged with the Source Four LED CYC™ adapter, which can be attached to any Source Four LED™ luminaire to create smooth, full-coverage lighting on backdrops. At Prolight + Sound, ETC will offer the same full-scale, colorful demos that proved so popular last year at PLASA in London. Source Four LED CYC has been used to superb effect at London's National Theatre, Parktheater in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and many other venues around the world.
The SmartPack® Wall Mount series of power control products, which now includes ThruPower™ solutions, will also be at the show. As with ETC Sensor3™ power control, dual- and triple-action dimming and switching configurations provide complete control of today's hybrid rigs.
Also on the stand for demonstration will be ETC's popular halogen Source Four Mini™ fixture. It is available in portable, ceiling-mount and with track-adapter versions. The Source Four Mini has been widely used in smaller theaters, including for the Skipton Puppet Festival in England, and at the Seebühne puppet theater on the north German island of Hiddensee.
Please visit ETC on stand B62 in Hall 9 to see the Cobalt ETCnomad competition entries, enjoy a cold beer or hot beverage, and to have a chat with ETC staff about all the company's new and existing products at Prolight + Sound, Wednesday to Saturday, March 12th to 15th, 2014.
