ETC set for at ABTT Theatre Show 2015

Fresh from the Stage Set Scenery show in Berlin, ETC will be at the ABTT Theatre Show 2015 on stands B11 and B20, with the UK’s first look at ETC Rigging products, together with their latest control desks and fixtures.

ETC Rigging, which will be seen for the first time in the UK at the ABTT show, 24-25 June, is a range of packaged wire rope hoists and controllers which are designed to be quick and easy to specify and install. ETC employees will be available to discuss how this new addition to the product range can fit into users’ venues or projects.

Across the aisle, ETC’s second stand will focus on control desks and fixtures.

ETC’s Gio control desk, which uses the powerful Eos operating system that is rapidly becoming standard in theatres across the UK, will be joined by Cobalt 10, which is designed for quick, seamless lighting control.

The theory behind Cobalt’s operating system, says Cobalt product manager Sarah Clausen, is that people should be able to “reach out and touch the light.” By combining direct access selection with a short operating syntax, users begin to feel that there’s nothing between them and the control desk.

Gio, meanwhile, has all the power of ETC’s flagship Eos Ti desk, yet remains portable enough to easily carry to the control room while on tour, or for when space is at a premium. As with Cobalt, the software was designed to be quick and user-friendly; the two built in monitors can be supplemented by up to three external monitors – all of which can be multi-touch.

The Source Four LED Series 2 system is a complete lighting solution, made up of three different colour engines, nine angles of fixed focus lens tubes, two zoom lenses, and the Source Four LED Fresnel and CYC adapters. Lustr, Tungsten HD and Daylight HD colour engines provide bright, powerful lighting with the ability for colour temperature and +/- green adjustment capabilities, at a fraction of the energy usage and heat output of traditional tungsten fixtures, whilst being of the required high quality for the exacting specifications of high definition TV cameras.

At 12:30 on the first day of the show, Wednesday 24 June, in the stunning Londesborough Room, ETC’s associate regional manager Jeremy Roberts will be joined by Daniel Murfin, lighting control supervisor at the National Theatre, to discuss ETC’s work improving control of LED fixtures.

Building on the honourable mention ETC received at the 2014 LDI trade show for the colour control capabilities in Eos family desks, this seminar will show how Eos software can unlock the full potential of LED fixtures. Roberts and Murfin will talk about how the software includes tools such as multiple user-selectable colour spaces, new gel-matching concepts and relative colour offsets – which make transitions between colour states easier and inherently predictable. Attendees will walk away knowing the ins and outs of LED fixture control.

Visit ETC’s stand – numbers B11 and B20 – at the ABTT Theatre Show at its new north London venue to discuss these and all of ETC’s products and services, and to enjoy a refreshing glass of Pimms and lemonade.
