Lights! Camera! Action! ETC gets set for 2015 NAB tradeshow

ETC's booth (#C4742) at the 2015 NAB tradeshow, April 13th  to 16th , in Las Vegas, will star a lineup of new and award-winning products. Visitors will get the opportunity to see demonstrations of the latest ETC fixtures, rigging equipment and lighting controls that simplify the job of broadcast professionals.

Lighting fixtures

The Source Four® LED family is a flexible system that 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. At the NAB show, ETC will show a new adapter in the Source Four LED family, the Source Four LED Fresnel, which allows the light engines to create soft washes with smooth coverage. "There's a Source Four LED for any lighting task," says Fixtures Product Manager Jim Uphoff. "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." 

ETC QuickTouch rigging controls


Visitors to the booth will also get the opportunity to see ETC's automated rigging systems in action. A station featuring Foundation® and QuickTouch® controls will give an overview of their features. Foundation gives users complete control of up to 48 variable- and fixed-speed motors. QuickTouch provides simple yet intelligent system control, moving battens and utility hoists for fixed-speed motors at the touch of a button. And the intuitive, user-friendly QuickTouch+® system can control up to 24 variable- or fixed-speed motors. 

ETC Gio desk


ETC's NAB stand will also have a Gio® console on display for visitors to test out. Gio is a space-saving but powerful desk that can handle any studio rig with ease. Technicians can lay out Magic Sheets representing their lighting rig, for simple control. And it's the perfect solution for on-location shoots and venues with multiple studios. An ETCnomad™ lighting controller will also be part of the control system at NAB. A keychain-sized device, ETCnomad plugs into a computer and opens up the power of ETC's Cobalt® - and Eos®-family lighting control systems.
