The statement, „putting something in the right light “is not just a saying. The Electronic Theatre Controls GmbH, short ETC, knows that for sure. They are experts when it comes to the right lighting technology for architecture, stage and television. They are responsible for the lighting design at the successful musical “The Lion King”, the Bayreuth Richard Wagner Festival, the famous Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas and the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. High quality products and great service, those are the areas where ETC shines, and still remains humble.
“No matter how prestigious a company or a production company is, when the curtain goes up, everything has to function,” Rosi Marx, European Promotions & Advertising Manager at ETC, said. The most loved and unique products at ETC are the EOS family of control consoles, which were shown at Prolight + Sound 2013 and continue to receive praise.
Dirk Gollmer, master electrician at “The Lion King” Theatre in Hamburg said, “The EOS ends, in technically well engineered form, the struggle between the flexibility of a touch screen and the tactile sensation of a mechanical control. In addition, the necessary and often used functions are not hidden; everything that is needed can be easily reached.”
The products with the most unique characteristics are, according to Marx, the Desire and Source Four LED spotlights. “In contrast to other LED spotlights, ETC uses seven different coloured LEDs.” Therefore, a large colour spectrum can be achieved and not just be used for effects, but also for lighting people.
You can convince yourself of the benefits of ETC products at Prolight + Sound 2014. Marx and her team will be in Frankfurt again to present their newest products. “It is easy to see in the past years that Prolight + Sound has established itself as the leading trade fair for our sector.”
