ETC to exhibit new products at NATEXPO tradeshow

Date Posted: 11/7/2016

Tungsten HD and Daylight HD

For the first time ever, ETC will have its own stand at the NATEXPO tradeshow, November 16th to 18th, at the VDNH exhibition center in Moscow. Visitors to booth A41 in the Bavarian pavilion will have the opportunity to check out the latest ETC lighting solutions designed specifically for the unique requirements of television and film. ETC will also sponsor events surrounding the NATEXPO tradeshow for lighting professionals working in the broadcast market.

Source Four LED system

At the NATEXPO tradeshow, ETC will display the Source Four LED Series 2 system, which transforms to fit any position in the studio, thanks to a range of adapters, accessories and lens tubes that can be added to Source Four LED Series 1 and Series 2 light engines. The Source Four LED family also includes the Source Four LED Fresnel, which allows the light engines to create soft washes with smooth coverage, and the Source Four LED CYC with highly tuned optics to provide incredibly smooth, evenly-distributed coverage, without visible gaps. “There’s a Source Four LED for any lighting task,” says ETC Field Project Coordinator Florian Maier. “And the light engines create the brightest colors or adjustable white light that naturally illuminates skin tones. On top of that, the fixtures’ flicker-free mode is great for high-speed and rolling-shutter cameras, so Source Four LED light looks great in person and on camera.” 

NATEXPO attendees will be the first in the world to see a prototype of ETC’s brand new pole-operated yoke for LED luminaires. It works with the Source Four LED CYC adapter to provide pan and tilt functionality, with the Source Four LED Fresnel adapter for pan, tilt and zoom, and with five- to 90-degree fixed-focus lens tubes for pan, tilt and focus capabilities.

ColorSource family

ETC will also show the ColorSource family, which brings a complete, high-quality LED lighting system with plug-and-play setup to studios and shoots with limited budgets. Available in two sizes with optional audiovisual capability, the ColorSource consoles provide hands-on control with the ability to run effects, mix LED colors, control moving lights and play back cues – all with the flick of a fader. The ColorSource Relay can wirelessly switch power and transmit DMX and RDM to hard-to-reach places. And the ColorSource Spot, ColorSource PAR, and ColorSource Linear luminaires can create bright light with the broadest color gamut possible from a four-color LED, thanks to their unique RGB-Lime emitter mix.

After the NATEXPO show floor closes on Wednesday, November 16th, ETC is inviting lighting professionals to an LED test drive at the GST/CODA Audio showroom in Moscow. The doors will open at 18:30. At 19:00, ETC staff will give a demonstration of LED technologies designed with broadcast applications in mind. “We’ll have a video camera on hand at the event,” says ETC Technical Sales Specialist Vladimir Kraynov, “so attendees will be able to see how natural the LED light looks both in person and on screen.” Following the demonstration, attendees are invited to enjoy a barbecue while taking a closer look at the equipment. They can try out the products themselves and ask ETC staff any questions they have. More information about the free-of-charge LED test drive and a registration form is available here.

ETC is also going to take part in DNK’s “Modern Technology: TV and Film. New Products” seminar at Moscow’s S.A. Gerasimov All-Russia State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK). At 16:40 on Thursday, November 17th, ETC will give a presentation of its broadcast-lighting equipment, including Source Four LED Series 2 Daylight HD and Tungsten HD luminaires, the ColorSource family, and Eos and Cobalt Motorized Fader Wings. Registration for this free event is required, and can be completed at
