Once again, ETC is collaborating with regional partner Oasis Enterprises for CABSAT 2018. ETC will display a line-up of new broadcast-friendly products at the Jebel Ali Meeting Room C, where visitors will have the opportunity to see demonstrations of ETC lighting fixtures and controls in a real-life studio set-up, with on-camera demonstrations.
ETC's highest-quality LED lighting for studios is the Source Four LED system. The Source Four LED Series 2 luminaire is available in three arrays: Lustr for the most expansive palette of bold colours, and Daylight HD and Tungsten HD, which were designed specifically for studio use, providing colour-spectrum-specific, natural, tunable white light. Their handy flicker-free mode was designed for use with high-speed and rolling-shutter cameras, for a flawless look on camera. There are also a range of accessories, fixed-focus and zoom lens tubes, and adapters that transform Source Four LED fixtures into tools that can be used for a variety of applications on set, or on location. The Fresnel adapter allows the light engines to create soft washes with smooth coverage.
Visitors can also see the the new ColorSource CYC – a fixture with a sole purpose of creating beautiful, smooth washes of light on a cyclorama or wall. It’s capable of producing a wide range of colours using an all-LED, five colour mix of red, green, blue, indigo, and lime. ETC said that it is perfect for use in broadcasts, thanks to a high 25K mode for running flicker-free fixtures and a unique emitter mix that can light up backdrops with a mix of vibrant colours, soft pastels or pure white.
Controlling the luminaires will be ETC's flagship lighting control desk, the Eos Ti, with hardware and software to tools to realise artistic lighting within the tight timetable of professional productions. Ti features large-format, high-resolution articulating multi-touch displays with a substantial programming surface. It also offers a dedicated multi-touch encoder display, 20 user-definable buttons, a backlit keyboard, motorised faders, multiple USB and video ports - for designing and programming lighting.
Professionals from ETC will be on hand to answer questions in Jebel Ali Meeting Room C and also on the stand of Oasis Enterprises – ZB5-A20, where additional ETC products will be on display. Equipment available for demos will include a pole operated Source Four fixture, and the new Ion Xe lighting control console, together with Eos Fader Wings. The IonXe desk brings professional programming power to any venue, featuring the same backlit keyboard layout and full-feature software as the bigger Eos family.
