‘Ministar offers versatility and performance at an affordable price point’
USA - ETC has introduced the High End Systems Ministar, adding to its automated lighting product line. Ministar offers versatility and performance at an affordable price point; with a compact footprint, punchy output, and a professional feature set, Ministar fits the spec and budget for small to medium-sized venues.
Automated lighting product manager Matt Stoner comments,. “What sets this fixture apart are the dual colour wheels that create the VersaColor technology, offering a spectrum of 60 pure and elegant colours that are accessible via a single channel. This empowers users to create beauty with an extensive range of colour options.”
Complementing the VersaColor is QuadraTech, an innovation that harnesses the power of four colours within the projection. Matt Stoner elaborates, “QuadraTech revolutionises the creation of stunning visual effects, both in washes and aerials, offering a unique edge that sets the Ministar apart. This technology unlocks a realm of beautiful colour combinations that are easy to use and provide unique projections and aerials.”
Ministar uses a 300 W custom LED to generate an output exceeding 9,700 lumens. Its feature package includes dual pattern wheels for gobo morphing and textural manipulation, variable frost for softening edges and washes, a prism to elevate theatrical applications and create breathtaking aerial effects, and swift pan & tilt functionality for dynamic movements. Notably, its ingeniously engineered 6.5° - 48° zoom function is housed within a remarkably lightweight 16 kg/37 lbs. design.
Tania Lesage, ETC’s market manager, adds, “The Ministar exemplifies ETC’s commitment to industry-leading innovation while remaining cost- effective. It heralds a new era in lighting solutions, empowering professionals with budget constraints to elevate their creativity without compromise.”
