from the CEO
We have so much new to
show you this year – more
ETC innovations to light up your world and work. In these pages, meet Eos Ti, the newest desk in our awardwinning lighting control lines. We designed Eos Ti to contain and exceed the powerful functionality of Eos –
mastering your hybrid lighting rigs filled with conventional fixtures (like ETC’s Source Fours), moving lights,
multimedia devices, and LEDs (like our Selador x7 Color System luminaires and Source Four LEDs).
Our expanded Source Four LED and Desire LED lines bring unprecedented rich color and whites to your
stage, studio, exterior and interior productions. Our Sensor3 Power Control system (it’s not enough to call it
“dimming” anymore) offers our new ThruPower modules, accommodating the variety of load types in your
hybrid lighting systems.
And per your demand, we’ve introduced the powerful little Source Four Mini. You’ve wanted an ultra-compact
spotlight to do specialty lighting for as long as the Source Four’s unique light has existed. Now you have one.
I hope that as you look at our products here you will see beyond them too, to the reasons they are the best
in the industry: ETC has the best people. I’m very proud of that. ETC is entering its 39th year of existence –
from the early college-student band of inventors to the current ETC international community of over 700
people (not counting our representatives, dealers and certified technicians, who are part of the ETC family
as well). The history of ETC marks milestones in product introductions, awards, installations, acquisitions,
and expansion. But the real story has always been about the brainpower and heart of the individuals who
work here. At the same time, we recognize the people behind the use of our products worldwide – you.
We want to take the opportunity to tell you that your passion for lighting and rigging drives and inspires us.
Thank you for choosing ETC.
fred foster
a better way
ETC was begun in 1975 with the
passionate belief that there was a
better way to make a lighting control console. We developed one of the first microprocessor-based systems,
with the then blindingly fast 2MHz 8080 CPU. Now our award-winning lighting control desks are thousands of
times more powerful than those versions. And we keep believing lighting control can be even better.
We also proved that the HPL lamp in a Source Four® made for a better spotlight – unmatched light output and
energy savings. Well over three million Source Four-family fixtures now light up venues and productions worldwide.
And we offer you a better way to seize the efficiencies of LED lighting: eco-friendly ETC LED fixtures with the
power and punch that theater and broadcast productions require, plus a stunningly beautiful seven-color range.
The most vivid, saturated color available from LED technology: the award-winning Source Four LED™ and Selador
series, including the Desire® LED line.
With our Unison® family, now comprising Paradigm®, Mosaic®, and SmartLink® products and more, we are
giving you far better – and greener – solutions for handling sophisticated architectural lighting, as well as for
building-systems and dynamic show control.
We also believe there is a better way to serve customers. Our Project Management group serves as your
intermediaries and customer advocates. They support your installation’s unique needs, create submittals, assist
specifiers, process order changes, facilitate shipping, and coordinate technical-service involvement. They listen
to you and respond with solutions for your lighting success.
We are always here with customer support. Call us when you need us, 24 hours a day, seven days a week at
1-800-688-4116. Our regional offices and over 200 authorized service providers around the world will do what
it takes to solve your problem. The show must go on. That’s the ETC ethic.
The great playwrights of history said ‘Life is theater.’ At ETC, we light life. And we’re always looking for better
ways to do that for you.
The speed of light: Complete Control™ by ETC
ETC’s lighting control desks and systems master the most ambitious lighting rigs – from legions
of conventional fixtures, to moving lights, media servers, LEDs, and more. We have a console
Eos Titanium (Ti)
Eos Ti RPU3
for every production or venue.
For lighting professionals devoted to the operational ‘DNA’ of ETC’s award-winning Eos®
family, the choice now includes not only the Gio , Ion , and Element desks but the new Eos
Titanium. The flagship of the console line, Eos Ti™ is aimed at venues with big work to do –
Net3 RVI
Universal Fader Wings
Broadway and West End shows, opera, TV, and beyond.
Radio Focus Remote (RFR)
Net3 Gateways
The Gio fills the mid-range position in the family, between Eos Ti and Ion, offering powerful
Eos functionality in a compact, portable footprint – to fit anywhere and to take on the road.
SmartFade and SmartFade ML consoles
[see Smart Solutions chapter]
For productions with less ambitious budgets – but ambitious lighting still to do, ETC offers
Ion, with the Eos-brand pedigree but geared to a smaller scale.
Element maintains the Eos operational style but offers a simplified feature set in a stand-alone
console, making it ideal for modest rigs that need more basic hands-on fader control.
And for complete control over any rig the future may hold, the most comprehensive ACN
network – ETC’s Net3™ – is ready. Net3 protocol provides the best traffic management for
high-capacity applications, speaking directly to complex devices.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
This stunning Middle Eastern cultural landmark is one of the most ambitious lighting projects in the world. From
architectural and ambient lighting indoors to artistic illumination outdoors (including a 29.5-day cycle mimicking the
phases of the moon), the Grand Mosque stands apart for its lighting control. Four ETC Congo® consoles were used to
program the exterior lighting, and the cues are run on six Congo Light Servers™. Specially written ETC control software
provides a sophisticated fault-reporting system, ensuring that the 19,000 conventional and 1,250 intelligent-lighting
fixtures communicate via RDM and ACN using Net3™ Gateways. The Grand Mosque also employs 52 ETC Matrix Mk II
dimmer racks and 15 ETC Unison® CMEi Processors for the architectural lighting control.
Powerful doesn’t have to be hard. Eos Titanium, or, Eos Ti™, is the
new flagship of ETC’s Eos® lighting control line. As professional
production values rise, and lighting rigs become more complex, Ti takes the pressure off. Lighting designers and
programmers can think less about the mechanics of their system and more about art. The Ti platform – like all Eos-line
desks – speaks the language of light: a common-sense syntax and operational clarity that makes show-programming
workflow go faster. No ‘interpreting’ required.
Introducing Eos Titanium
Eos Ti’s hardware and software innovations lighten the load. More direct control with stunning multi-touch screens and
more visual terrain, plus a generous backlit, user-definable keypad and a potent solid-state hard drive.
Run your lighting show with full Eos
software and hardware. The Eos Ti
Remote Processor Unit is a compact 3U 19” rack-mount device, providing primary and/or backup processing for Eos
lighting control systems. It can be used in conjunction with Eos Ti or Ion® consoles and also as a stand-alone lighting
playback unit.

Eos Ti Control
Gio masters the mid-range position in the Eos® family, between the new
Eos Titanium™ and Ion® – boasting the same powerful programming DNA. Gio
offers Eos functionality and popular operational syntax, in a compact, portable footprint – to fit anywhere or to take on
the road.
Gio control desk
Gio introduced popular new technologies to the Eos line-up. The desk features backlit buttons to make working in dark
places easier (and saves your dimmable Littlites® for seeing your script instead!). Gio also includes two integral, articulating
multi-touch displays and supports up to three external displays, all of which can also be multi-touch.
Gio’s keypad layout makes moving between Eos-console platforms a snap. And, Gio can integrate into an Eos Ti or Ion
system with ease, acting as a primary, back-up, or client console in combination with the rest of the family. All of the
accessories for Eos and Ion service Gio as well.

Smart Solutions Control
Don’t compromise on power because of size
requirements. ETC developed a family of affordable
power control products built to the scale and needs of smaller productions and venues: restaurants, houses of worship,
TV studios, video shoots, schools, industrials, semi-professional touring shows, and beyond. Smart Solutions provide
standard phase-control dimming in a super-compact form, plus ETC reliability and service at a smart price.
Smart Solutions™ in power control
Three convenient SmartPack® choices mean dimming for everyone. Available with either six 2400-watt dimmers or twelve
1200-watt dimmers, the SmartPack Portable Pack is the flexible, plug-and-play solution for small entertainment events,
school and house-of-worship productions, or roadshow applications. SmartPack Wall Mount is for space-starved venues
that need permanent, affixed dimming with a small footprint, such as restaurants, clubs, school auditoriums, and houses
of worship. Both SmartPack versions do DMX and SmartLink® architectural control. Plug in a SmartFade® lighting console
for easy programming and let SmartPacks run on their own, or access the 32 built-in presets and internal sequencer
remotely via SmartLink button stations. Both SmartPack Portable Pack or SmartPack Wall Mount can run the presets in
sequence automatically. By simply adding a low-cost LinkConnect Station Power Supply, you can access the presets and
sequence from ETC's SmartLink button stations or TimeClock.
Hit the road! The SmartPack Touring System is a small, flexible touring rack with incredible reliability and performance.
Perfect gear for anything from weekend gigs to regional festivals and small touring productions. The rack has built-in
mains distribution – all in one box – and, like the other SmartPacks, is one of the most lightweight and portable systems
made. The rugged SmartPack Touring System allows you to choose your pack style: 10A or 20A and your choice of
outputs. The system provides you with what you need for a simple show – power distribution, including convenient
outlets; as well as all the standard SmartPack features. Thanks to SmartLink you get added flexibility for pack-to-pack
communication and synchronization of the presets and built-in sequence.

ETC’s Echo Relay Panel answers the call for more inventive
power distribution in today’s advanced lighting systems. By
accepting a mains power feed to the cabinet, the panel distributes switched power from built-in relays and can optionally
provide 0-10V control for LEDs or fluorescent fixtures. The rack can be controlled using industry-standard DMX or over
Ethernet. It can also store presets that can be recalled from Echo Preset Stations. The EchoConnect control network allows
up to six stations and six panels to be connected together. The 120V Echo Relay Panel can be configured for one-, two-, or
three-pole relays and 10, 15 or 20A branch breakers. Its narrow width allows it to be conveniently surface mounted or
recessed between standard wall studs. At 20 inches wide and six inches deep, the 277V model offers one-pole breakers
and relays. All panels display breaker state, relay state and energy usage per branch circuit.

Fox Theatre
Oakland, California
Shuttered for over 40 years, the historic Fox Theatre has been renovated and restored to its former artistic splendor, with
the added mission of going ‘green.’ ETC’s Selador LED fixtures highlight the theater’s vast spaces, high ceilings, and
intricate decor, which include ornate Moorish motifs. Thanks to the flexibility of the x7 System, the Selador fixtures impart
rich, bold color to the architectural details while transitioning through hues for further dramatic effect. As the audience
enters, the Selador lighting gradually changes, enveloping the space. Lush, colorful lighting achieved – while saving on
energy costs – with Selador LED technology.
The industry’s favorite spotlight – in high-efficiency LED versions. ETC’s awardwinning Source Four LED fixtures combine ETC’s exclusive Selador® LED color
technology with Source Four® light quality. Source Four LEDs look, feel, and focus like Source Fours – producing a sharp,
clean beam of focusable light or creating smooth washes. And for the power used, their light output is exceptional:
between 30 and 50 lumens per watt, depending on the model.
Source Four LED™
Demand the best color. The Source Four LED Lustr+™ offers superior light quality, richness of color, and precision control.
Like ETC’s Desire Lustr+™ luminaire, the Source Four LED Lustr+™ employs the Selador x7 Color System™ for the most
comprehensive palette.
The many colors of white. The new Source Four LED Studio HD™ white-light spotlight performs in high-definition
broadcast, film, and video production where people (with varying flesh tones) need to look their best. The Studio HD
combines exceptional light output with broad-spectrum variable white light (2700K-6500K), for truer color rendition on
camera. It is ideal for key, bounce, smooth, or textured lighting. And like all Source Four LED and Desire® fixtures, the
Studio HD has flicker-free options to prevent the side effects that can arise when using LEDs with high-speed and rollingshutter cameras. More great whites: the Source Four LED Tungsten™ produces a warm, beautiful light at a 3000K color
temperature; the Source Four LED Daylight™ replicates a natural, cool light at 5600K.
Double duty with one fixture.
Attach the CYC adapter, and any
Source Four LED becomes a superior tool for lighting cycloramas. Switch out the adapter, and a Source Four LED returns
to use in any other position, on or off stage. Fewer Source Four LED CYC units are needed to cover a cyclorama because
their light stretches so high and is so evenly distributed. Using the Selador x7 System, the Source Four LED CYC adds bold
colors and drama to any cyclorama, and can be fine-tuned to accentuate or suppress hues in painted backdrops.

Desire x7 LED Luminaires
The Desire user interface helps you quickly configure the luminaire to your specific task. Tailor the light to your needs by
choosing specific profile and performance settings. Desire luminaires can be controlled from a DMX controller – like an
ETC lighting console – or right on the back of the fixture via stand- alone control functions.
Great color flexibility. Desire’s DMX profile selection (RGB, HSI, HSIC, Direct, and Studio) lets you choose the control
personality that is best for your programming situation. The Red Shift option allows Desire fixtures to mimic the natural
color shift in a tungsten fade. Adding Plus-7 settings to the more intuitive control modes, like HSI and RGB, gives precision
control over individual LED colors. You can quickly modify the color to get the exact shade you want.

emitters; the D40 series and the IP66 outdoor-rated D40XT and XTI, with an array of 40 Luxeon® Rebel™ emitters; and
the D60, with a more powerful 60-emitter array.
Desire Studio LED™ Luminaires
The breakthrough Studio HD™ was developed in consultation with TV-lighting experts. It starts with warm-white and
cool-white LEDs to provide continuously variable color temperatures. Five colors from the Selador x7 Color System™ are
added to the array. Together they produce high-quality white light for the most demanding professional lighting situations.
The Studio HD gives the precise color of white light the instant it’s needed. Intensity, color temperature, and green levels
can be adjusted and saved into a lighting console or right at the fixture at on-location shoots. Studio HD excels at
illuminating people – creating a natural looking, photogenic light that can be fine-tuned to skin tones, flattering and
complementing all pigmentations. So the talent looks great, time after time.
When high-efficiency punch is more important, the Desire® range offers the Studio Tungsten™ and the Studio Daylight™
fixtures. Both were developed in response to demand by international lighting pros for specific color temperature, nonvariable, high-intensity LED light sources. The Studio Tungsten uses LEDs designed to produce white light at 3000 Kelvin.
The Studio Daylight is perfect for designers working in video, film or architectural situations requiring 5600 Kelvin.

At only nine inches long and weighing just over a
pound and a half, the Mini is the tiniest Source Four
ever, but it lives up to its family name for projection, punch, and efficacy. It may be cute, but the Mini is a serious
lighting tool. Its 50-watt tungsten/halogen MR16 lamp is brighter than you’d expect from an instrument of this size.
The Mini also performs like a Source Four – with crisp optics; crystal-clear image projection; a bright, even field; and
user-friendly operation.
Introducing Source Four Mini™
The Mini’s compact size means that even more installations can have Source Four functionality. Sometimes you need
a spotlight a third the size of a normal fixture to highlight a special detail or prop on a set – to do an important bit of
fill or accent lighting in a particular scene. The Mini is also a perfect fit for small-scale installations, like light labs,
children’s theaters or puppet theaters, as well as venues like museums, stores, and restaurants that need an extremely
low-profile fixture that can easily blend into an architectural or artistic design.
The Mini is available in four field-angles: 19°, 26°, 36° and 50°, with a 2.5-inch diameter lens. It comes in a portable
version with a miniature C-clamp, a canopy-mount design with an integral transformer, or a track-mounted design.
All Mini models accept a range of conventional-spotlight accessories and include an E-sized pattern holder and a gelmedia frame. And beyond standard black, white, and silver, the Mini is available in custom colors to blend into or
complement any surrounding design.

Source Four Fixtures
The fixture that changed the lighting industry. Source Four combines the energy-saving
power of the patented HPL lamp, with a dichroic reflector and optical-quality lenses, for the
coolest beam on the market. That means your patterns and shutters last longer and your performance space stays cooler.
Source Four
No other light offers such optical brilliance. Source Four’s revolutionary technology gives you a clean white beam for
unequaled imaging, crisp pattern projection, and a bright, even field. It’s the favorite fixture of lighting designers everywhere.
Rated for up to 750 watts, the Source Four punches through saturated colors and offers great long-throw performance.
Ultra-efficient for more lumens per watt: at 575 watts, the Source Four literally outshines 1000W ellipsoidals. And at 750
watts – well, no point comparing – there are no other fixtures in its class.
Venues and shows across the United States use their Source Fours in tandem with ETC’s Dimmer Doubling™ technology
to gain more dimming circuits and lighting flexibility. With Dimmer Doubling one circuit equals two separate dimmer
channels, which in turn allows you to power up twice as many Source Fours.

Source Four Fixtures
More tools for your Source Four workbox! There’s a Source Four
field angle for every lighting throw distance. ETC’s Source Four 14º
gives you a powerful alternative for front-of-house positions where a 10º field would be too small or 19º too big. Ideal
for performance venues and churches where 30’ to 70’ throws are encountered, the 14º makes a great retrofit fixture for
lighting professionals who miss 8x13 ellipsoidals.
Source Four 14º, 70º, 90º
We have you covered – with the brightest short-throw fixtures available! The Source Four 70º and 90º fixtures give you
ultra-wide spotlighting for positions with low trim heights, like low ceilings or back-of-set specials. Choose the 70º or
90º when you need more controlled light coverage than a wide-angle wash, plus powerful pattern projection from a very
short throw distance.
When your lighting situation requires the most precise optics for projecting gobo
images or logos, the Source Four Enhanced Definition Lens Tube (EDLT) option is
an invaluable addition to your Source Four inventory. The EDLT attaches easily to any new or existing Source Four fixture
body and is available in 19º, 26º, 36º and 50º field angles. Without compromising on light output, EDLT provides
heightened sharpness and stunning contrast to images when the Source Four is used as a pattern projector. With the
innovative EDLT option on your Source Four, the best spotlight available gets even better.

Seeing is believing: A side-by-side comparison of gobos projected with and without the EDLT demonstrates the
clear difference.

40% brighter than others’ zooms! You don’t have to compromise on
brightness when you need the versatility of a variable-focus ellipsoidal
spotlight. This is the zoom for the most discerning international lighting professionals. Just one fixture to achieve a variety
of field angles, with all the advantages of the acclaimed fixed-focus Source Four: bright even field (even brighter than the
fixed-focus units!), cool beam, and amazing efficiency. The dichroic mirror means shutters and accessories stay cool, and
drop-in accessories are interchangeable with fixed-focus Source Fours. Rated up to 750W, Source Four Zoom gives you
Source Four’s crisp optics for excellent imaging and field quality, with added field-angle flexibility.
Source Four Zoom™
And ETC’s patented one-handed zoom operation makes adjustments quick, simple and safe. Technicians can focus with
one hand and hold the ladder with the other. And the unique lens-tube door provides quick and easy access when you
want to clean the lens assembly (tool-free!).
If you’re looking for the field-angle versatility of a zoom ellipsoidal with
the economy and compact design of a smaller fixture, you’re looking for
the convenient Source Four jr Zoom. School stages, houses of worship, black-box theaters, and budget-minded
productions will find the jr Zoom to be a great solution for their smaller-scale or short-throw lighting needs. There’s no
compromising on quality either – Source Four jr Zoom boasts ETC’s standard rugged fixture construction and performance.

Elegant, compact, efficient and flexible – this is no
ordinary PAR can. ETC’s Source Four PAR goes
beyond with its rugged die-cast aluminum construction and acclaimed Source Four lighting technology.
Source Four PAR™ EA and MCM
Changing beam angles is easy: Source Four PAR comes with a set of four snap-in lenses that mount in a cool, rotating
ring. That also means no more reaching into a hot can with cracked porcelain sockets. And when you need a new lamp,
just use your stock of Source Four HPLs (no need to carry a large inventory of expensive PAR64 lamps).
Source Four PAR’s compact design means more units can be mounted on a pipe or fit into a truck. Combined with
reductions in power and cable requirements, the Source Four PAR is perfect for touring. The fixture is available in two
versions: EA (Enhanced Aluminum) and MCM (Metal Cold Mirror) versions. EA is a perfect PAR choice for ‘normal’
applications, but when your space requires the coolest performance environment, choose MCM, engineered with a cool
beam as top priority.
With the PARNel, ETC introduced a new category of fixture to the lighting
world. Featuring the patented wave lens design and easy focusing knob, the
PARNel lets you quickly access a range of 25 to 45 degrees – a smooth, soft, symmetrical field that you can spot or flood
like a Fresnel, but do even more with. ETC went beyond mere imitation and created a fixture with Fresnel functionality
and the awesome performance of a Source Four PAR. Awarded the ESTA’s Dealer’s Choice Award for Equipment, the
PARNel has taken its place on professional lighting rigs worldwide.

A Fresnel that’s a Source Four®! Winner of the PLASA Member’s Choice
Product Award, ETC’s Source Four Fresnel gives you the soft-focus lighting
you love, with Source Four quality and efficiency. Lighting designers prize the controlled blending washlight and soft
beam you can only get from a barn-doored Fresnel. Our fixture combines the classic Fresnel optical system with the HPL
lamp technology that makes Source Four fixtures the professional choice. And like all Source Fours, this Fresnel is energysaving: the 750W unit produces the same light output as others’ 1000W Fresnels. Choose lamp wattage to suit your
application and energy requirements – from 375W to 575W to 750W.
Source Four Fresnel™
Our innovative socket and access door let you change out the lamp from underneath the fixture – without breaking focus
– saving time and trouble. ETC makes it simple to adjust the fixture from spot to flood, with a full-sized zoom knob for
better grip. Replace your old Fresnels with ones built to last: Like all Source Fours, the ETC Fresnel is made of rugged diecast aluminum.
We applied the award-winning optics of our Source
Four PAR to a time-honored theatrical workhorse and
made it into a lighting thoroughbred. Lamped with the HPL, this is a powerful striplight. The Source Four MultiPAR in
3-, 4-, or 12-cell lengths offers excellent light distribution, energy savings, and ETC’s quality construction. The design
capitalizes on the thermal management of the PAR reflector while still allowing easy access to the lamp without breaking
focus. We made innovations we wanted to see in a striplight, including Source Four energy efficiency and light output, a
beautiful field, and the flexibility to change from three to four circuits (and vice versa) for the MultiPAR-12.

Unison Paradigm
ETC’s Unison DRd Series Enclosures are the workhorses behind the
scenes, supporting a networkable Paradigm® processor and a variety
of dimming, switching and option modules. These dimming enclosures
are trusted for their reliability and versatility. Designed with long-term,
round-the-clock operation in mind, Unison DRd’s dimming, control,
and station power components are now modular, making service and
support easier than ever.
Scaled to the power you need. Unison DRd is available in 6- and 12module enclosures for up to 24 dimmers and can be cross-bussed
from the same main power input, combining enclosures for up to 48
dimmers from a single feed, while only needing one control processor
for both enclosures. When it comes to fluorescent dimming, Unison
DRd can handle it all: two- and three-wire dimming ballasts with
standard modules, DALI Ballasts and 0-10V ballasts. And DRd doesn’t
stop at fluorescent control: we do reverse-phase dimming (trailing edge)
for electronic low-voltage transformers, and a range of other loads.
Unison modules are hard at work in venues across the globe. They are
available in voltages for every need: 120V, 230V, 240V and 277V.
Designed specifically for use in Unison DRd Series enclosures, these
modules are heavy-duty, high-grade commercial dimmers. Each
module is UL-Listed for continuous duty at five, ten, 15 or 20 amp
capacities. Universal modules are available for incandescent, magnetic
low-voltage, two- and four-wire fluorescent, neon, cold-cathode,
or switched loads, or in specialized modules, such as, three-wire
fluorescent, relay, or constant current. Reverse-phase (trailing edge)
dimming of electronic transformer loads is available with the electronic
low-voltage dimming module series.
The LinkConnect Paradigm Station Power Module™ series provides the
power for all of your Unison Heritage™ and Paradigm stations. Based
on Echelon's LonTalk® protocol with LinkPower, LinkConnect allows
you to communicate over a two-wire, topology-free data bus –
simplifying system wiring. And the LinkConnect Station Power Module
sends power, along with communication, down the same pair of wires
for up to 32 stations. When you need more stations or need to cover
more distance, you can add Paradigm Repeater or Dual Repeater
Station Power Modules to your system.
ETC’s Unison Heritage Control Stations are used in lighting systems
worldwide, from smaller-scale venues like schools, restaurants and
houses of worship to large-scale networked convention centers and
theme parks. Elegant and clean-lined, Unison Heritage controls are
designed to complement – not to compete with – the aesthetics of
any interior environment, while being easy to install using LinkConnect.
The Unison Heritage series of button and button/fader control stations
can be customized to suit any décor and application – available in a
wide range of sizes, color and configurations. Heritage faceplates use
our Fastener-Free attachment system and may also be made to order
–from custom legends in the font and color you choose, to a unique
look using materials you specify.
Maximum security. Prevent unauthorized use of your lighting control
system in public spaces with Secure-It Keyswitch Stations. You specify
combinations of buttons or faders with a local, momentary or
maintained key-lock in a single-gang faceplate, or choose button
stations with key-only access. Secure-It technologies provide you with
multiple levels of control protection.
Not all system interaction involves people: a variety of Heritage
interface stations (DMX in and out, network, AV serial, contactclosure, and more) are available when interaction with other building
systems or peripheral equipment is required.
The Paradigm Central Control Server™ scales up Paradigm systems to
master the most complex lighting. By integrating a BACnet®
communication system and incorporating exclusive new ETC Virtual
Touchscreens, Paradigm Central Control Server achieves the most
comprehensive building-wide control while also benefiting even
single-processor installations. The PCCS thinks globally and acts locally,
allowing internal subsystems to act independently, while one
command center monitors the entire system – simultaneously
logging, overriding, driving, and managing the components.
With Central Control Server, multiple Paradigm systems can be
programmed independently of each other and consolidated into a
single system. This provides essential systems-management for multivenue theme parks, cruise ships, performing arts centers, casino and
resort venues, museum complexes, and the like, where lighting
operations can now subdivide from facilitywide control down to even
one preset lighting scene.
Designed to interface with ASHRAE’s BACnet IP, Paradigm Central
Control Server synchronizes and stitches together separate systems.
It is not merely triggered by BACnet, it bi-directionally listens, registers,
and replies to event scheduling, ensuring that the system runs its
events even if connection to BACnet is lost.
Paradigm Central Control Server’s Virtual Touchscreen stations and
large-format touchscreen integration provide customized control
anywhere. A Virtual Touchscreen may be a touchscreen computer or
a conventional computer with monitor and keyboard/mouse control.
Configured by ETC’s LightDesigner™ and ControlDesigner™ software,
the interfaces are tailored to the needs of any application.

Touch this. The ancient word for ‘tile,’ a ‘tessera’ is a part of a greater
mosaic and an object of utility itself. The Unison Mosaic Tessera®
Controller (MTPC) is both a part of a greater sophisticated networked
system and a full standalone controller, in a compact interface. The
versatile Tessera combines a sleek 4.3” touchscreen with a 512-channel
DMX-Over-Ethernet Mosaic controller. Complex lighting shows using
devices like moving lights, color-mixing LEDs, conventionals, and
dimmers can all be controlled by Tessera. It also handles impromptu
show control, accessories, automation, waterworks, and other
non-lighting effects.
Each device supports onboard triggering over Ethernet. Additional
channels and triggering interfaces are supported by optional MSC
controllers and remote devices attached over an Ethernet network.
Tessera’s integrated show-control capability is programmed and
configured using Mosaic Designer™ software. With RealEngine
functionality, Tessera ensures an accurate representation of your full
show – whether in software simulation or played live to connected
controllers. Tessera also employs LiveControl for live output of your
Mosaic show file to Mosaic controllers and fixtures during simulation.
With DesignerAccess, Tessera draws on an internal Web server with
pages providing status, configuration information, remote monitoring,
and remote show uploads. The QuickChange function allows showdata to be stored on a flash memory card, which can be conveniently
transferred to another Tessera.
Packed with power. These ‘instant-on’ compact devices run your
sophisticated shows reliably and precisely, time after time. The
Mosaic Show Controllers support DMX512 and DMX-Over-Ethernet
protocols to control color-mixing fixtures, conventional dimmable
fixtures, and automated lights. MSC1 offers 512 channels; MSC2
offers 1024 channels (or, 340 RGB color-mixing units); and for the
ultimate compact performance, the MSC4 offers 2048 channels with
the same solid-state package. You can choose to output DMX512
directly to your devices or send the data to your network using DMXover-Ethernet protocols: streaming ACN, Philips KiNet™, Art-Net™,
or Pathway XDMX™.
Each MSC has the same extensive range of external triggering
interfaces, including Ethernet, RS232 Serial, MIDI, and digital inputs.
The built-in real-time clock triggers precise timed events, including
‘sunrise’ and ‘sunset’ astronomical cues. Additional triggering
interfaces are supported by Mosaic’s optional RIO devices. [See
RIOs, p. 76].
Unison Mosaic
Expand your reach. The Mosaic Remote Input/Output Modules (RIOs)
expand the advanced show-control capabilities of your system in
interactive installations, allowing lighting and AV to respond instantly
to the environment or viewer. As accessories to the Mosaic Show
Controllers™ (MSCs and MTPC) and Mosaic Show Controller X
(MSCX), all RIO devices employ familiar, simple, and reliable Ethernetwiring topology with IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
RIO 8/0
When you need to accept discrete triggers from third-party equipment
to complete your system, choose the RIO 8/0. Featuring eight
configurable Tri-Mode inputs, the RIO 8/0 accepts almost any input
from the necessary equipment: digital-active high, digital-active low,
or contact closure, and an integrated, bi-directional serial port
(RS232/RS485). Up to 100 RIO 8/0 devices can be used in one system.
RIO 4/4
When you need both input triggers and control over other devices in
the same location, choose the RIO 4/4. Featuring relay outputs and
configurable Tri-Mode inputs, as well as an integrated, bi-directional
serial port (RS232/RS485), the RIO 4/4 allows you to integrate with
almost any third-party device. Up to 100 RIO 4/4 devices can be used
in one system.
RIO 0/8
When you need to issue commands to third-party devices (such as
building-automation and alarm systems, effects controllers, and
automata), rely on the RIO 0/8 with eight fully isolated relay outputs,
as well as an integrated, bi-directional serial port (RS232/RS485). Up
to 100 RIO 0/8 devices can be used in one system.
When you need connections for audio input or linear timecode
(SMPTE and others) and MIDI timecode input and output, you need
Mosaic RIO Audio (MRIO-A). MRIO-A modules can co-exist on a
network as part of a distributed system: four supported for audio
input; six supported for linear timecode and MIDI.
When you need control for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface
(DALI) ballasts or to accept triggers from other DALI-capable control
systems, Mosaic RIO DALI offers connection to a single DALI loop (up
to 64 devices) for individual and DALI group scene control. Up to 12
RIO DALI devices can be used with the MSC and MTPC Controllers,
while up to 64 can be used with an MSCX — that’s 4096 DALI
devices. Ideal for commercial and architectural applications.
Extreme show control. The “X” in MSCX stands for that exceptional
project that demands much more control power and integration.
Designed to meet the needs of landmark projects, the MSCX is
available in capacities ranging from 10,240 channels of DMX-overEthernet (20 universes) up to more than 100,000 channels (200 DMX
universes, or, 34,000 RGB LEDs!) from a single 19” equipment-rackmounted unit.
Like its siblings MSC1 and MSC2, the MSCX has an extensive range
of external triggering interfaces, including Ethernet, RS232 Serial,
and DMX input. A built-in real-time clock triggers precise timed
events, including ‘sunrise’ and ‘sunset’ astronomical cues. As a DMXover-Ethernet device, the MSCX also empowers you to send the data
to your network using Ethernet protocols ETCNet2, Philips KiNet, ArtNet2, or Pathway XDMX, simultaneously. But unlike any other Mosaic
device, the MSCX includes VideoConnect – digital video outputs using
Firewire and DVI connections to master pixel mapping on video-based
fixtures, as well as a Firewire digital-video input for live-video mapping
in real time.
All Mosaic Show Controllers feature QuickChange, where invaluable
show data is stored on a removable flash memory card, which can be
transferred to another MSC if needed. The Mosaic RealEngine drives
your Designer-created show flawlessly in real time. For LiveControl
functionality or show upload, MSCX accepts Ethernet connections
from the Mosaic Designer software running on your PC. MSCs also
feature DesignerAccess, an internal Web server with active pages –
providing status, configuration information, remote monitoring, and
remote show uploads.
Freedom to focus on creativity not technology. Unison Mosaic Designer
Software provides the framework for creating your unique work of
art. Everything you need is here: from importing project plans for
system layout, to positioning lighting fixtures and other devices in
the plan, to editing triggers and timelines, picking specific colors,
programming special effects, mapping pixels to an array, playing back
video clips, visualizing the results, and uploading your show.
With Mosaic – you don’t need a console. You already have one –
inside the Designer Software. From your Mac or PC, create an infinite

of LED control for constant-current fixtures. The Mosaic Constant
Voltage LED Driver (LED-V) provides six channels of LED control for
constant-voltage fixtures. Each can be paired with a standard power
supply to power both the LED driver and the connected fixtures.
The LED drivers offer one power supply input and DMX in and thru,
creating six discrete outputs to LED fixtures. Constant-current modules
offer a variety of outputs – 350mA, 500mA and 700mA – with inputs
from 15 to 48Vdc. Constant-voltage modules run 12 to 24Vdc with
a maximum channel output of 40W (180W total power). These
compact drivers fit any installation. They feature manual and
automated addressing, fixture test modes, standard DMX protocol,
support RDM configuration, and are convection cooled.
These DIN-rail-mounted drivers are the perfect accessory for any
Mosaic control system.
Mosaic Button Stations (BPS) interface with any Mosaic Controller
(MSC, MSCX, and MTCP) over a standard Power-over-Ethernet
network. With support for up to 100 stations in a single system,
button stations can be placed remotely to trigger any system action
or timeline. Simple addressing using a rotary switch is provided on the
rear of the station, and Mosaic Designer software is used to assign
button actions and LED indicator responses. With faceplates for North
America and Europe, the button stations are available in finishes of
white, cream, black, or black with an aluminum bezel, to complement
your décor. Or, go your own way: Design your own look by choosing
the clear acrylic version with a customizable insert.
The Mosaic Ethernet Switch (MSC-NET) allows for multiple Mosaic
Controllers or accessories to be networked together. The MSC-NET
offers five unmanaged Ethernet ports, with four ports also providing
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). The DIN-rail mounted switch is the perfect
accessory for any Mosaic Show Control System.
The Mosaic DMX/RDM Opto-Splitter (MSC-OPTO) distributes four
outputs of a single DMX universe from a Mosaic control system to

Source Four® lighting power for anywhere! If your
commercial venue needs the lighting punch and long
throws of a theatrical spotlight or the even, clean wash of a PAR-style fixture, the solution is Source Four HID. Call attention
to architectural details. Project patterns and logos. Frame signage. Source Four HID's long-life 12,000-hour lamp is available
in both 70W and 150W versions. That means low maintenance – perfect for locations that can't be reached often or
easily – and low-wattage options, great for working within strict energy-consumption guidelines.
Source Four HID™ fixture family
Source Four HID gives you the level of performance of a 2,000-hour incandescent Source Four fixture but with 10,000
additional hours. The metal-halide fixture features the Source Four's famous cool beam, imaging, pattern projection, and
bright, even field. Source Four HID uses an electronic ballast with a power factor of greater than 95% compared to some
competitors’ ballasts at less than 70%. And HID's ballast has an efficiency of greater than 90%. With its low operating
current, you can safely place more Source Four HIDs on a standard lighting circuit than you can other manufacturers’
units that operate less efficiently. Plus, Source Four HIDs are UL Listed for damp locations.
A Source Four HID for every commercial environment. The standard Source Four HID comes in field angles to suit almost
any throw-distance! Use the Source Four HID jr™ when space is tight. The Source Four HID Zoom™ allows you to alter
field angles for multipurpose venues or make last-minute on-site changes. The Source Four HID PAR™ gives you brilliant
wash lighting, and the Source Four HID PARNel® gives you multiple effects – dramatic pools of light or room-filling washes.
The Source Four HID PAR and HID PARNel offer four field spreads and a 25°-45° zoom range. Source Four HIDs are

a waterproof, dust-tight housing for all-weather use. The XT’s durable industrial design coupled with a 12,000-hour,
150W high-intensity-discharge source make it ideal for long-term use anywhere.
Source Four XT
Unlike interior-rated spotlights modified with add-on housings to work outdoors, this is a sleek, fully sealed and selfcontained fixture. XT is also aesthetically neutral so that it blends into any location – from outdoor architectural installations
to entertainment venues to themed environments and more.
Engineered for a variety of long-throw situations, the XT uses the same 15° to 30° or 25° to 50° optical system as the
Source Four Zoom™. And, like other Source Fours, the XT employs Source Four B patterns and dichroic color. With its
built-in shutters, the XT is ideal for highlighting architectural detail, as well as for framing building features and signage.
XT’s mounting options allow you to light from wherever you need to: Place the fixture on the ground, hang it by yoke,
attach it to poles, walls, or other structures.
Designed for the long haul, the Source Four XT requires minimal maintenance. Technicians can re-lamp the fixture without
breaking focus or accessing the optical chamber. Also, the fixture’s ballast is mechanically separate for cooler operation,
and fully pre-wired for fewer installation hassles.

Built to PLASA/ANSI E1.6-1 motorized-hoist standards
ETC Rigging
Rigging confidence with the touch of a button. No other
rigging control systems at this level offer such extensive
operational and safety-feedback features. QuickTouch®, QuickTouch+® and Foundation™ controls are the command centers
of ETC Rigging. These systems activate and monitor the lifting functions of Prodigy® fixed- and variable-speed hoists and
system safety features. Each controller logs the use of the entire hoisting system and the behaviors of each hoist, while
providing diagnostics on itself and the entire hoisting system. If a fault occurs, hoists communicate the type and location
of the fault via the controller’s LCD screen. As a safety backup, hoist functionality is limited during a fault condition. The
controller also tracks the system’s annual-inspection schedule, and records the usage of each hoist (moving distance,
peak loads, and fault conditions since install and last inspection). QuickTouch, QuickTouch+ and Foundation produce
inspection reports that can be transmitted to archives at ETC, ensuring that required inspections occur, while reporting
problems or misuse.
