ETC has big plans for PLASA Focus: Leeds

Date Posted: 4/21/2014


The ETC Source Four LED Series 2™ luminaires, ETC Source Four Mini LED™ luminaires and ETCnomad lighting control, along with SmartPack® ThruPower products are set to be the stars of the show at this year's PLASA Focus: Leeds tradeshow, April 29th to 30th, in the UK.

The Source Four LED Series 2 luminaires were first seen in public at the Prolight + Sound tradeshow in Frankfurt, where they received a great reception. ETC Fixtures Product Manager Jim Uphoff and his colleagues were busy throughout the show giving demonstrations on the new luminaires and their incredible output. By adding lime green emitters, the gaps in the visual spectrum are evened out, which means that a greater range of colors and more powerful output are achievable.

The Source Four Mini LED is now available in addition to the tungsten version of the Source Four Mini™ , and provides greater energy efficiency for lighting architectural details and in situations where short throws are required, such as in low-ceilinged theaters, museums and retail outlets. Another new model - the Source Four Mini LED Gallery - provides a higher CRI source for best possible color reproduction.

ETC's SmartPack power control line has recently expanded* to include installation racks with ThruPower capability. The SmartPack ThruPower Switch model offers a dimming and constant power option per circuit, and the SmartPack ThruPower Relay version provides dimmed, relay and hot-power branch circuits. This means that mixed lighting rigs that include traditional tungsten, LED and moving lights can now be better served.

Also on the stand will be ETCnomad, which gives users lighting control capabilities from the comfort of their own computers. ETCnomad runs both Cobalt® and Eos® -family software, so users can work with either platform. Show programming can be done while on the move and the ETCnomad USB dongle allows it to be played back on stage, or it can work as backup directly from the computer itself.

Please join ETC at PLASA Focus Leeds in New Dock Hall, stand number C06, at The Royal Armouries Museum, April 29th to 30th, where you'll be able to meet with ETC staff and discuss your lighting project or product needs.

* Note: Some of the SmartPack models mentioned in this article are available only in the European market.
