Evolving light: ETC continues to improve at PLASA 2010

ETC’s stand at PLASA 2010 highlights its ever evolving range of lighting, dimming and control products with an impressive number of software and product updates on display.

The company’s complete range of control desks are available for demonstration, along with the PLASA Award winning Selador LED fixture line, Unison Paradigm building control system and SmartSolutions portable dimming.


Featuring the patented x7 Colour System, the six different Selador LED models produce a light and colour quality that conventional LED systems cannot duplicate. The latest additions to the range are Vivid Fire, which produces warm colours from the red-orange-yellow palette; and Vivid Ice, outputting brilliant, soulful shades of blue. In addition, the original Vivid fixture has been upgraded and now outputs 50% more light than previous models, while consuming 10% less power.


In addition to the Selador Series, ETC is showing models from the Eos, Congo and SmartFade control desk families, including a number of impressive software updates. Eos V1.95 software includes the new Virtual Media Server for Eos and Ion – a tool for easy programming of LED arrays or arrays of fixtures to create large scale graphic images or effects. Congo V6.1 provides an improved colour engine including the Colour Picker first seen on Eos alongside better support for calibrated fixture templates. There is also an exciting update for the SmartFade range of desks, proving that small and budget conscious venues are not ignored: V3.0 means that SmartFade ML will now be able to utilise the full feature set of LED fixtures with up to 7 colour parameters – including, of course, Selador.

Unison Paradigm

Part of the Unison range of control products, Paradigm brings sophisticated and green-minded technologies to theatre house and foyer lighting control as well as rehearsal spaces, offices and even the external lighting of entertainment facilities. The system activates sophisticated houselight looks at the touch of a button, running moving lights and LED effects as well as conventionals. New V1.2 software includes Colour Picker functionality and improved Timed Event editing tools.

… and Source Four luminaires

All this, plus the latest additions to the hugely popular Source Four range of luminaires – new Outdoor Source Four HID 70W and 150W 15º-30º fixtures in a compact industrial design – on show and available for demonstration at ETC’s PLASA stand.
