ETC Source Four LED Series 3 – now in stock!

Stage Lighting Services have received a shipment of ETC Source Four LED Series 3, which are now available to hire. Check out some of their great features below.

Setting standards that are far from standard

Over a decade of research comes together for the market that has inspired ETC for over 45 years. The Source Four LED Series 3 brings the brightest light to the stage with the Lustr X8 array for the most nuanced colours and the Daylight HDR array for tuneable white light.

We’ve added wireless DMX/RDM by integrating City Theatrical’s Multiverse® protocol, and easy NFC configuration using your mobile device and ETC’s Set Light app.

Get the brightness you need from every distance, the colour you’ve been craving, and the control you deserve for the most efficient workflow. Like all ETC fixtures, Series 3 is backed by an unmatched industry warranty

The colour of emotion

When ETC added lime to the x7 array in 2014, it was a revolutionary step forward for colour mixing. Lime green increased the lumen output in open white and lighter tints making them brighter and livelier than other LED mixes. It was a step closer to matching the tungsten output of a conventional Source Four fixture. It also enriched colour-rendering by better marrying the red and blue ends of the colour spectrum.

Well, we’ve done it again. This time we’re adding Deep Red to the mix. With the eight-colour Lustr X8 array, Series 3 renders skin tones and sunsets with new depth. With the tuneable white Daylight HDR array, you get a wider range of warm and cool whites. All, without sacrificing brightness.

Hang this fixture in a box boom, overhead, or from the farthest back-of-house position and be amazed at how bright your stage is. Source Four LED Series 3 truly brings brightness from every position.

ETC’s R&D department developed a way to give you fixtures that output a surprising number of lumens while maintaining the nuanced colour control you need to enhance every set, every stage, every venue. We’ve reached further into the corners of the CIE colour space to grab a red that is essential to accurately capture the life within every shade of skin, the warm glow of firelight, and the romance of sunset.

It is great to be back at Hay Festival after 3 years away due to the pandemic.

After months of planning and two weeks of build onsite, the festival is now open.

Once again working alongside Stage Sound Services, we have supplied a complete technical package for the 5 venues at the festival, along with supplying Sky Arts with a rigging and technician package for their pop up studio onsite.

This package includes Avolites dimming, Electronic Theatre Controls consoles, Milos and Total Solutions Group truss structures, full compliment of fixtures and complete project management with a onsite project manager onsite for the duration of the build.

Lighting Up Hospitals for the NHS

We are happy to be supporting the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board with this special project to commemorate two years since national lockdown, and celebrate the amazing work of the NHS.

To light up four different hospitals we used a range of fixtures, including SGM P6’s, Pulsar Chromaflood’s and Robe Pointe’s, all controlled with ETC Colorsource AV 40 consoles.
