ETC adds to range with Layers of Light4 May 2011
ETC has launched several new lighting products. The new fixtures – Selador Desire LED luminaires, Source Four Fresnel, and outdoor Source Four XT – are said to advance ETC’s mission of enhancing the artistry and functionality of light. They are featured on a new website at www.layersoflight.com.
With Desire, ETC is introducing a new range of fixtures in the Selador family of LED luminaires (pictured). The Desire line offers three different PAR-shaped chassis:
• the bright D40 with 40 LED emitters;
• the super-bright D60 with 60 emitters;
• and the D40XT that is rated for exterior use.
The luminaires feature Selador’s award winning x7 Color System, which uses balanced blends of up to seven different shades of LED emitters to provide the widest colour gamut possible from LED fixtures.
For the first time, ETC is offering a Source Four Fresnel. Combining the light output and energy savings of the Source Four line with the unique optics of a Fresnel, it uses the same acclaimed HPL lamp family as other Source Four fixtures, so end users only need to stock a single lamp in their inventory. And the design of the socket and access door on the fixture means the lamp can be changed from underneath, without having to break focus.
With the XT model, lighting designers can now take advantage of the Source Four outdoors. The new Source Four XT HID spotlight boasts the same optical acuity, light output and energy efficiency that designers love in regular Source Four HID fixtures, but in a new format constructed to stand up to the elements.
IP65 rated for exterior use, the XT is watertight, dust tight and can operate safely in extreme temperatures. The sleek, low-profile design will blend unobtrusively into any exterior, long throw application and is ideal for theme parks, retail, outdoor performance spaces, public sculptures and exterior signage.
ETC is launching a promotion to help customers get to know these products: Layers of Light. Whether it’s layering back, side and front lighting into a scene; layering colours to create a look; or layering conventional, automated and LED fixtures into a rig, ETC’s new website, www.layersoflight.com, offers ideas on how ETC’s fixture range can achieve the best results.
