PLASA 2012: ETC's Layers of Light on UK debut
For the first time in the UK, the Layers of Light theatre space will offer a short presentation every hour.
ETC market manager Erik Larsen says, "We'll set up a series of coloured fabrics to show how colours can balance, 'pop' or appear dull by adjusting each of the different colours in an LED fixture. We'll then show how each of the company's different ranges of fixtures can work well either together or separately. ETC staff will demonstrate how LED can be mixed with conventional incandescent light sources, and how that works with a Sensor3 Power Control system.
"While we recognise that no single fixture is perfect for every kind of use, ETC's goal is to provide designers with tools that stand out on their own but also enhance the abilities of any lighting rig in combination with other sources."
Also on the ETC stand will be ETC Source Four LED demo stations, where visitors can see the power and versatility of white and colour mixing LED fixtures for themselves, and a range of ETC control desks from the Congo and Eos lines - including the newest, Gio - with the company's latest software updates installed. Congo software v6.3, which is due for release in September, brings a collection of user interface expansions to Congo, including a new context menu system, similar to right-click menus found in other software.
ETC's Sensor3 Power Control System will be the star of the dimming and architectural controls area of the stand, while, in the fixtures area, an exciting new addition to the Source Four range will be on show. More details will be revealed at PLASA.
These and many other products from ETC's lighting and control ranges will be on show and available for demonstration on ETC's PLASA stand, number 1-G39, beside the bar and business lounge in the centre of Hall 1.
