ETC’s 40th anniversary celebrations continue, and the next stop on the global tour is
London for the annual PLASA Show, at Olympia, 18-20 September.
On stand J40, ETC will debut a brand new product, the ColorSource Linear. Like the
popular ColorSource Spot® and ColorSource PAR® fixtures, this new batten-style
addition to the range uses a proportionate recipe of red, green, blue, with a twist of
lime and an extra dash of red. This gives a richness only possible from ETC LED
luminaires. With no difficult setup and round-the-clock support from ETC’s Technical
Services department, it’s the right fit for any small or medium venue.
Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to meet the rest of ETC’s budget-
friendly ColorSource family, the complete, high-quality LED system for venues on a
budget. ColorSource Spot and PAR luminaires create bright light with better colour
than other four-colour LEDs, thanks to their unique RGB-Lime emitter mix. Available
in two sizes, ColorSource consoles provide hands-on control with the ability to run
effects, mix LED colours, control moving lights and play back cues. The ColorSource
Relay wirelessly switches power and transmits DMX and RDM to hard-to-reach
places. And, the ColorSource ThruPower control rack is a solution for transitioning
lighting systems between tungsten and LED.
Additionally, ETC’s stand will have a Gio® lighting desk on display, alongside the
new Eos® Motorized Fader Wings and Eos v2.4 software – a combination geared
toward the needs of programmers working in broadcast, music and live-event
markets. The Motorized Fader Wings are designed to optimise the new features
provided by the recent software update, including expanding the types of content
that can be placed on playbacks and the types of controls and mapping that can be
associated with them.
PLASA attendees can also see Cobalt® Programming Wings and Motorized Fader
Wings in action together with ETCnomad. The tiny ETCnomad plugs into a computer,
turning it into a lighting controller that can run both ETC Cobalt and Eos/Element
software, giving programmers the best of both worlds. It’s the perfect tool for on-
the-go gigs or cramped lighting booths.
Furthermore, ETC employees are taking part in PLASA 2016’s seminar programme.
Luke Delwiche will host his seminar OSClympics, providing an entertaining insight
into how Open Sound Control (OSC) can help improve your shows. Meanwhile,
Darren Beckley will feature on the panel of the seminar entitled Sadler’s Wells: new
technology for the stage. Further details and registration for the seminars can be
