With the expansion of the legendary Source Four family of conventional fixtures and the popular Selador line of LED luminaires, lighting professionals have even more tools to achieve brilliant, high-quality lighting – for architectural installations, on stage, in the studio, indoors and outdoors. Says ETC Product Marketing Manager David Lincecum: “ETC has proven that we are the manufacturer to trust when it comes to both tungsten and LED sources. The new Source Four and Selador fixtures were designed with the user experience in mind. We talked to professionals in the field and designed the fixtures to meet their needs and simplify their work, while still producing spectacular light.”Selador Desire D40XT Vivid luminaire

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 Systemâ„¢, which uses balanced blends of up to seven different shades of LED emitters to provide the widest color gamut possible from LED fixtures. The Desire line offers seven different color arrays – Vividâ„¢ for bold, statement-making color-mixing; Lustr®+ for adjustable white and tinted light; Fireâ„¢ for saturated warm-spectrum colors; Iceâ„¢ for stunning cool-spectrum colors; and Studioâ„¢ HD, Studio Tungsten and Studio Daylight for installations that require the purest white light. Each luminaire features an easy-to-read user-interface that allows users to set special operational modes for specific applications. Energy-efficient, functional and beautiful, the Desire line is unlike any other range of LED fixtures on the market.

Source Four Fresnel

ETC Source Four FresnelFor the first time ever, ETC is offering a Source Four Fresnel. The Source Four Fresnel combines the light output and energy savings of the Source Four line of fixtures 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. The Source Four Fresnel is so efficient that a 750W unit can produce the same light output as traditional 1,000W Fresnels. The Source Four Fresnel also features a full-sized zoom knob that makes it easy to adjust from spot to flood. Professional lighting rigs are now complete.

Source Four XT

Lighting designers can now take the brilliance of the Source Four outdoors. The new Source Four XT HID-powered spotlight boasts the same optical acuity, light output and energy efficiency that designers love in 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 and wet weather. The sleek, low-profile design will blend unobtrusively into any exterior, long-throw application.

ETC Source Four XTThe XT has separate focus and relamping tools so the fixture can be relamped without breaking focus or accessing the optical chamber. It features a 15° to 30° zoom, and a 12,000-hour, 150W, high-intensity discharge source lamp. An external color, pattern and glass holder makes it easy to adapt lighting for special events. The XT can be ordered with a yoke, pole-top mount, or wall-mount bracket for multiple mounting options. ETC's new Source Four XT is ideal for theme parks, retail, outdoor performance spaces, houses of worship, public sculptures and exterior signage.

Along with the new fixtures, ETC is launching a new campaign to allow customers to get to know these products: ‘Layers of Light.' Whether it's layering back-, side- and front-lighting into a scene; layering colors to create a look; or layering conventional, automated and LED fixtures into a rig, lighting designers work with this notion every day. ETC's new micro-website,, offers ideas on how ETC's fixture range can achieve the best results when it comes to lighting in layers.
