ETC Introduces MiniStar

ETC is thrilled to introduce the High End Systems Ministar, a game-changer in our automated lighting product line. Ministar brings exceptional versatility and performance at an affordable price point; with a compact footprint, punchy output, and a professional feature set, Ministar fits the spec and budget for small to medium-sized venues.

Automated Lighting Product Manager Matt Stoner dives into key features that define the Ministar. “What sets this fixture apart are the dual color wheels that create the VersaColor technology, offering a spectrum of 60 pure and elegant colors that are accessible via a single channel. This empowers users to create beauty with an extensive range of color options.”

Complementing the VersaColor is QuadraTech, an innovation that harnesses the power of four colors within the projection. Matt Stoner elaborates, “QuadraTech revolutionizes the creation of stunning visual effects, both in washes and aerials, offering a unique edge that sets the Ministar apart. This technology unlocks a realm of beautiful color combinations that are easy to use and provide unique projections and aerials.”

Ministar uses a 300 W custom LED to generate an impressive output exceeding 9,700 lumens. Its feature package includes dual pattern wheels for gobo morphing and textural manipulation, variable frost for softening edges and washes, a prism to elevate theatrical applications and create breathtaking aerial effects, and swift pan & tilt functionality for dynamic movements. Notably, its ingeniously engineered 6.5° - 48° zoom function is housed within a remarkably lightweight 16 kg/37 lbs. design.

Tania Lesage, ETC’s Market Manager, outlines the Ministar’s position within ETC’s lineup, emphasizing its outstanding performance and reliability. “The Ministar exemplifies ETC’s commitment to industry-leading innovation while remaining costeffective. It heralds a new era in lighting solutions, empowering professionals with budget constraints to elevate their creativity without compromise.”
