New ETC products at Prolight + Sound NAMM Russia 2015
Date Posted: 9/4/2015
Official ETC dealer DOKA Center will show the latest ETC products on its stand at the Prolight + Sound NAMM Russia 2015 tradeshow, September 10th
, at the Sokolniki Exhibition Center in Moscow. Attendees will be able to see the newest additions to ETC's fixtures and controls families.
DOKA Center staff will demonstrate the Source Four LED Series 2 Lustr luminaire, along with the Source Four LED CYC adapter. "The Lustr array is the most flexible in the Source Four LED family, capable of producing the most evocative color mixes, from the most vibrant colors to the softest tints and cleanest whites," explains ETC Fixtures Product Manager Jim Uphoff.
The Source Four LED light engine can be transformed to fit any task and fill any position in a stage or studio light plot, simply by affixing any one of a range of adapters, accessories and fixed- and variable-focus lenses. The Source Four LED CYC adapter - which will be available at the Prolight + Sound tradeshow - generates incredibly smooth, evenly-distributed light that mimics an incandescent cyc light. It can be used to accentuate or subdue hues in painted backdrops for an incredible artistic impact. And the CYC adapter requires no additional lenses or diffusion, so it sets up instantly.
ETC expanded its control families this year with the introduction of Eos- and Cobalt-family Programming Wings, and the release of powerful new Eos v2.3 software. Working with portable control devices like ETCnomad and ETCnomad Puck mini-controllers, the Programming Wings provide a physical control surface for devices without a dedicated facepanel. Featuring the same keypad layout as Gio and Cobalt consoles, the Programming Wings are great for use on the road.
Eos v2.3 software offers all new tools for working with colors. "With six abstract color spaces, an improved gel picker, and a full spectrum of color fade, tinting and emitter- and metamer-adjustment tools, LED color control has never been so in depth or so intuitive," describes ETC Eos Controls Product Manager Anne Valentino. Eos 2.3 also allows the ability to network with outside devices using Open Sound Control, and includes new continuous-run and repeat-on-go effects, expanded Direct Selects, improved Lightwright import, and more.
Prolight + Sound attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about ETC's control products. "We'll have a console specialist on hand, who is ready to answer any questions about ETC's lighting consoles," says Vasiliy Litvin, head lighting-technology engineer for DOKA Center.
