ETC has introduced Source 4WRD Color as the latest addition to the Source 4WRD fixture family. This new product offers a colour-changing retrofit for existing full-size Source Four ellipsoidal/profile fixtures, bringing additive RGBA colour-mixing, saturated washes, quick colour changes and much more to Source Four.
As a non-destructive retrofit, Source 4WRD Color is the next generation of ETC’s Source 4WRD LED line. Source Four ellipsoidal/profile fixtures can be transformed into RGBA LED luminaires with the Source 4WRD Color LED engine while retaining all of the features of the Source Four including the lenses, accessories and its renowned reliability.
Source 4WRD Color technology is also available in two complete wash light fixtures. The Source 4WRD Color PAR and PARNel deliver soft-edges and saturated colour, no retrofit required. These luminaires incorporate the Source 4WRD Color LED engine into a custom housing, offering economical colour washes, including zoom on the PARNel version.
As well as producing a homogenised beam and around 5,000 lumens, all versions of the S4WRD Color features 12 built-in presets and five sequences in stand-alone mode. With the addition of FixtureLink, Source 4WRD Color is compatible with cable-connected fixtures (using the DMX port) including ColorSource, Source Four LED, and Desire; allowing you to trigger presets and sequences without a console.
ETC Vice President of Marketing, David Lincecum commented: “With Source 4WRD Color, you get a simple and cost-effective colour-changing retrofit that can upgrade an existing lighting system quickly, allowing you to create even more stage looks than before. 4WRD Color will allow venues to move their existing equipment to LED, using less energy, lower maintenance and all this at a very compelling price point.”
