Desire Fresnel – A Classic Re-Imagined

DISCOVER A MODERN CLASSSIC

Fresnels have been around since the beginning of lighting design. These incandescent workhorse fixtures were known for their smooth wash and adjustable zoom. Combining all of the best features of incandescent Fresnels with the latest technology of LEDs, is a classic reimagined in Desire Fresnel.

FULL RANGE OF EMOTIONAL COLOUR

The Lustr X8 array brings subtle nuanced colours back to your stage. Colours you’ve been missing from a corner of the spectrum that has long been unreachable by LED sources. This is possible because of the introduction of deep red LEDs.

Deep red brings new life and energy to your stage, your costumes, your scenery, and most importantly, skin. Skin tones of every color find new depth and dimension with the addition of deep red. Desire Fresnel includes more of the visual spectrum that made incandescent sources warm and full of life.

Perhaps even more exciting is what happens when we add deep red to cool tones like blues and greens. It’s this nuanced color that takes a lighting design from good to great.

13-55 DEGREE ZOOM

A true Fresnel with an LED engine, Desire Fresnel has zoom control from either the front or the back of the fixture. A Fresnel is only as good as its performance with barndoors. Desire Fresnel delivers with smooth fall off and clean edges. It’s truly a cut above the rest.

BRIGHTNESS

ETC has taken the classic fixture that theatre technicians know and love and brought it into the 21st century. You get the softness of an incandescent wash light with LED colour mixing and smooth dimming. With traditional Fresnels, you sacrifice lumens depending on zoom position, but that’s not the case with Desire Fresnel. ETC has reworked how the lens and lamp work together, so your Fresnel is bright and efficient through the entire zoom range.

The Desire Fresnel delivers all the brightness you'd expect from a classic fresnel.

This provides more lumens regardless of angle, making it up to 25% more efficient over traditional Fresnel optical systems.

FULL FEATURE SET FOR ANY STAGE

Desire Fresnel's UI is easy to use.

INTUITIVE UI

The user interface was designed to improve the efficiency of your workflow. The four backlit encoders change colours to correspond to the attributes they control on the screen. Both new and seasoned users can quickly and accurately adjust settings.

WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY

CONSOLE CONTROL FROM FAR AWAY
