ColorSource console training

As a part of the company's 40th anniversary celebrations, ETC has something extra special in store for visitors to the ABTT Theatre Show at London's Alexandra Palace. For the first time in Europe, ETC will be hosting interactive training sessions with its new ColorSource® consoles

ColorSource console training

In tandem with the exhibition, ETC will be running a series of 70-minute training sessions in Suite 4 of Alexandra Palace's Palm Court. This is an ideal opportunity to get an overview of the capabilities and benefits of the entire ColorSource range of products, followed by a more in-depth look at the current and forthcoming ColorSource consoles. The sessions will include an interactive demonstration of ColorSource consoles; each attendee will have hands-on access to a desk, and can explore the main operational features. As an added bonus, participants will be automatically entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a ColorSource console.

The sessions will take place on Wednesday 22nd June at 11.00, 12.30, 14.30 and 16.00, and on Thursday 23rd June at 11.00, 12.30 and 14.30. They are free to attend but places are strictly limited so booking is essential. Reserve your space via

In addition, ETC will be exhibiting on stands B40 and C40; be sure to stop by for a celebratory drink and to see the selection of products on display.

Main stand

On stand B40 in the primary ABTT exhibition space, West Hall, ETC will be showing a selection of luminaires, consoles and rigging solutions. The ever-popular Source Four® LED system, with three light engines and a series of adapters, lens tubes and accessories, can be transformed to fit any lighting task. Control desks from the acclaimed Eos® family , incorporating the new Eos Motorized Fader Wing, will be available for demonstrations. Also see rigging controllers, including Foundation® , QuickTouch+® , MCI and Fixed-Speed Motor Starter , and a new architectural framing projector, the Irideon FPZ .

ColorSource stand

Across the aisle, stand C40 will be dedicated to ColorSource, a recently introduced family of products designed to make ETC-quality light available to smaller venues and applications with limited budgets. ColorSource consoles provide hands-on control of modern lighting fixtures. These affordable, portable desks offer plug-and-play setup and streamlined control features for programmers of any experience level. With a simple configuration and dependable performance, ETC's  ColorSource Relay  power controller redefines how small systems are laid out. It's an all-in-one solution for data distribution, wireless DMX transmission, and power-switching system infrastructure.  ColorSource® PAR and ColorSource Spot luminaires use a proportionate blend of red, green, blue and lime LED emitters to produce more natural light and better colour than other four-colour, budget LEDs. Completing the line-up is ColorSource ThruPower* ­− a great solution for transitioning lighting systems between tungsten and LED. 

*Please note: ColorSource ThruPower is available only in 230V markets
