ETC To Unveil New Lighting Control Console At USITT 2007


ETC has a great lineup of lighting products to showcase at the USITT tradeshow in Phoenix March 15 – 17, 2007, including their new SmartFade® ML control console. The newest member to join ETC’s Smart Solutions™ family, SmartFade ML boasts big-console features in a super compact, easy-to-afford unit, mastering up to 24 moving lights and 48 separate dimmers. It’s the perfect choice for schools and productions looking for the best basic moving-light control without breaking the bank.

Visitors to ETC’s USITT booth (#900) will also get to check out Eos™, the award-winning flagship system in ETC’sComplete Control™ line-up. Eos is a fully networked system managing conventional fixtures, moving lights, LEDs, and more.

Also on display at USITT 2007 will be ETC’s new Congo™ jr console, designed for everyday theatre work with conventional lights as well as advanced control of moving lights. Congo jr offers all the features and functionality of the original Congo console, but in a smaller, more compact footprint.

Senior undergraduate and graduate students in lighting design, theatre technology, and related fields will also be able to pick up applications at the ETC USITT booth for ETC’s annual LDI Student Sponsorship program. ETC will award six deserving young scholars with all-expense-paid trips to Orlando in November, for a close-up, behind-the-scenes look at the LDI tradeshow and ETC. Educators are encouraged to tell their best students to apply!
