ETC lifting the curtain on new products at LDI
At the LDI 2013 tradeshow, November 22nd to 24th, in Nevada’s Las Vegas Convention Center, ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) will premiere a new cast of products on its stand, #1415.
Winner of the 2012 LDI Best Booth Award, ETC’s stand will feature the Layers of Light Theater, which allows visitors to go behind the scenes to see the company’s lighting and rigging innovations. It will also function as a real theater, staging several presentations given by ETC staff: ‘2013: An ETC Rigging™ Odyssey’ by Michael Lichter, ‘Back to the Future: System Evolution’ by Steve Terry and Doug Tuttrup, and ‘Adventures in Light’ by Tom Littrell.
Making its first appearance at the show is the ETC Source Four LED CYC™ adapter, which transforms the Source Four LED luminaire into a superior tool for lighting cycloramas. It produces incredibly smooth, even coverage across cycs, without visible gaps. Backed by the x7 Color System™, the Source Four LED CYC offers a nearly limitless array of bold and subtle colors on cycs and can be fine-tuned to accentuate or subdue certain hues in painted backdrops.
Also on display for the first time at LDI is the Eos Titanium (Eos Ti™) lighting control system. The flagship desk in ETC’s popular Eos® family, Ti speaks the language of light, with powerful hardware, easy-to-navigate software and common-sense syntax. It features large, articulating multi-touch displays with plenty of programming space. Ti’s command line is fully integrated with direct selects and magic sheets, allowing designers to work seamlessly from the keypad and touchscreen controls.
The Source Four Mini™ – ETC’s little fixture with the big attitude – will also make its LDI debut. The Source Four Minipacks the crisp optics and user-friendly functionality of ETC’s legendary Source Four® family into a compact, nine-inch body. A 50-watt tungsten/halogen fixture, the Source Four Mini produces a surprisingly bright, even field and crystal-clear image projection. It’s the perfect fit for installations where larger fixtures can’t go.
In addition to its stand on the show floor, ETC will have a lounge in room N202, where LDI attendees are invited to go backstage to get demonstrations of the latest additions to the ETC Rigging family, including the new Prodigy® P75 low-profile hoist, which comes in 2,000-pound and 3,300-pound fixed-speed models and a 1,200-pound variable-speed version. Able to travel 75 feet, the P75 can take any combination of its eight quarter-inch lift lines either direction out of the hoist.
ETC will host its legendary LDI Student Session on Saturday, November 23rd, at 5:15pm, in ETC’s lounge (room N202). Students can pick up a pass at ETC’s registration desk to attend the event, where they can talk directly with ETC staff, answer trivia, and win exclusive swag and other prizes.
