The Source Four LED light engine can be transformed to fit any task and fill any position in a stage or studio light plot, simply by affixing any one of a range of adapters, accessories and fixed- and variable-focus lenses. The Source Four LED CYC adapter - which will be available at the Prolight + Sound tradeshow - generates incredibly smooth, evenly-distributed light that mimics an incandescent cyc light. It can be used to accentuate or subdue hues in painted backdrops for an incredible artistic impact. And the CYC adapter requires no additional lenses or diffusion, so it sets up instantly.
ETC expanded its control families this year with the introduction of Eos- and Cobalt-family Programming Wings, and the release of powerful new Eos v2.3 software. Working with portable control devices like ETCnomad and ETCnomad Puck mini-controllers, the Programming Wings provide a physical control surface for devices without a dedicated facepanel. Featuring the same keypad layout as Gio and Cobalt consoles, the Programming Wings are great for use on the road.
Eos v2.3 software offers all new tools for working with colors. "With six abstract color spaces, an improved gel picker, and a full spectrum of color fade, tinting and emitter- and metamer-adjustment tools, LED color control has never been so in depth or so intuitive," describes ETC Eos Controls Product Manager Anne Valentino. Eos 2.3 also allows the ability to network with outside devices using Open Sound Control, and includes new continuous-run and repeat-on-go effects, expanded Direct Selects, improved Lightwright import, and more.
