USA ETC has introduced High End Systems Halcyon and extended the ColorSource family with the addition of ColorSource V.
Created to meet the needs of rental operations, theatres, and opera houses, Halcyon is a family of framing fixtures designed for ‘the exacting demands of lighting production’. Offering reduced cost, reduced weight, and increased output, Halcyon fixtures are ‘engineered to fit into every spec for every design’.
Offering matching feature sets and performance across all fixtures, the Halcyon range consists of Gold, Titanium, and Platinum. Halcyon Gold outputs 31,000 lumens and is ideal for short to medium throw applications. Designed for medium to long throws, Titanium outputs 40,000 lumens. And for the most extreme light at the farthest distances, Platinum offers light output at 54,000 lumens, with 70,000 lumens in boost mode. With a new industrial design, each Halcyon fixture is smooth and sleek enough to blend into your rig.
Halcyon has two LED engine options for maximum versatility. Halcyon’s color mixing system uses tighter, next-gen gradient dichroics and a linear mixing curve supported by ETC’s renowned color science for smooth and even colours, both in and out of focus.
A new, custom selected package of patterns brings a full library of aerials, rotational effects, breakups, diffusion, and prisms. ETC’s Trifusion system brings a wide range of diffusion with a single control channel, maintaining maximum output and even frost distribution across the field, and a smooth transition from a sharp edge all the way to a heavy wash.
Automated Lighting product manager Matt Stoner comments, “The High End Systems SolaFrame changed how people do things in our industry, and we are excited to continue the revolutionary product line in our new Halcyon products. Over years of customer feedback and fixture usage we have learned so much and the Halcyon family is the culmination of that feedback, and a leap forward in smaller, less expensive, lighter, and better performance.”
Market Manager Tania Lesage adds, “There are thousands of venues around the world looking for lights with sharp projection, a versatile gobo package, and lush colour mixing; that is exactly what we bring with this new framing family. High End Systems Halcyon was created by our award-winning automated design team with three decades of experience. If Halcyon piques your interest, come see us live at LDI, JTSE or MEET, or get in touch with your local dealer or rep for a demo.”
Additionally, ETC has launched a new family of multi-venue fixtures. Building on the popular ColorSource line that is lighting schools, houses of worship, hotels, and theme parks around the world, ETC has announced ColorSource V. This trio of fixtures includes ColorSource Spot V, ColorSource Fresnel V, and ColorSource Spot VXT.
The V in ColorSource V hints at the five-colour array of red, green, blue, indigo, and lime. This combination of emitters makes it possible to produce the softest pastels and bold, punchy colors from the same fixture. In addition to the array, all ColorSource V fixtures include Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM, NFC for remote fixture configuration when used in collaboration with ETC’s free Set Light app, and increased brightness from the past ColorSource line.
ColorSource Spot V is shipping now and takes the place of the previous ColorSource Spot luminaire. Just like with Spot, ColorSource Spot V uses the same lens tubes, barrels, and accessories as ETC’s other spot fixtures, including the iconic Source Four incandescent fixture. If you have ETC’s CYC or Fresnel adapters in your inventory, Spot V works with those as well.
ColorSource Fresnel V delivers the technology of ETC’s premier Desire Fresnel fixture at an accessible price point. Incorporating a true microFresnel lens and motorized 14-46 degree zoom control from both the back of the fixture, or a control channel on your console, Fresnel V is truly a workhorse fixture for every theatre. ColorSource Fresnel V is expected to begin shipping in January of 2023.
ColorSource Spot VXT is the outdoor fixture, scheduled to begin shipping in late spring 2023.
