Source Four LED Series 3 – Taking Light to the Next Level
Setting standards that are far from standard
Over a decade of research comes together for the market that has inspired ETC for over 45 years. The Source Four LED Series 3 brings the brightest light to the stage with the Lustr X8 array for the most nuanced colors and the Daylight HDR array for tunable white light.
We’ve added wireless DMX/RDM by integrating City Theatrical’s Multiverse® protocol, and easy NFC configuration using your mobile device and ETC’s Set Light app.
Get the brightness you need from every distance, the color you’ve been craving, and the control you deserve for the most efficient workflow. Like all ETC fixtures, Series 3 is backed by an unmatched industry warranty.
The colour of emotion
When ETC added lime to the x7 array in 2014, it was a revolutionary step forward for colour mixing. Lime green increased the lumen output in open white and lighter tints making them brighter and livelier than other LED mixes. It was a step closer to matching the tungsten output of a conventional Source Four fixture. It also enriched colour-rendering by better marrying the red and blue ends of the colour spectrum
Well, we’ve done it again. This time we’re adding Deep Red to the mix. With the eight-colour Lustr X8 array, Series 3 renders skin tones and sunsets with new depth. With the tunable white Daylight HDR array, you get a wider range of warm and cool whites. All, without sacrificing brightness.
Hang this fixture in a box boom, overhead, or from the farthest back-of-house position and be amazed at how bright your stage is. Source Four LED Series 3 truly brings brightness from every position.
ETC’s R&D department developed a way to give you fixtures that output a surprising number of lumens while maintaining the nuanced colour control you need to enhance every set, every stage, every venue. We’ve reached further into the corners of the CIE colour space to grab a red that is essential to accurately capture the life within every shade of skin, the warm glow of firelight, and the romance of sunset.
Two arrays to cover every stage
One array for emotional colors and soft pastels and a second for the widest range of whites. Lustr X8 brings a new depth to your colours and, in turn, emotion to your stage. Designers know that the best white light is made of the richest colours which is why our tunable Daylight HDR redefines how you use white light.
Ready for the professional stage
CONTACTLESS COMMUNICATION FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICE.
The built-in near field communication (NFC) hardware gives you the ability to configure your fixture with your mobile phone or tablet running the Set Light app. Amazingly, this works even if the fixture isn’t powered, allowing you to config while you rig. Ready, set, light!
Next generation DMX
ETC has partnered with City Theatrical to bring you a patent-pending wireless DMX/RDM technology that enables scalability of wireless lighting data like never before. Multiverse® will change your entire approach to lighting by allowing large wireless DMX/RDM systems to be expanded even further. Used in conjunction with your console, City Theatrical’s Multiverse can broadcast as many as 10 universes of DMX from a single transmitter without excessive radio energy. This frees up precious wireless bandwidth in your space. Multiverse plays well with others but is robust enough that other signals won’t interfere.
The user interface was designed to make your workflow as efficient as possible. It is intuitive without compromising on feature set.
- Quickly and accurately adjust settings.
- The physical UI lock prevents unintentional bumping from changing settings
- Powered USB port for software updates and configuration backup
- Settings menu accessed through the menu button
- Toggle through operational modes using the function button
- The four backlit encoders change colors to correspond to the attributes they control on the screen

ETC adds new features to Unison Echo systems
ETC’s Unison Echo family just got more powerful. New common v3.1 operating software adds customer-requested features to the architectural control system, including tuneable white and sequence control for the Echo DMX Scene Controller, and more.
DMX Scene Controller can now control tuneable white DMX luminaires, giving users the ability to choose a colour temperature that best suits their space. Control for colour-changing fixtures has also been expanded, allowing users to mix a chosen temperature of white as well as colours.
A new sequence feature has been added to provide dynamic lighting control. Trigger functions in the DMX Scene Controller have been expanded to control how the system should behave if a DMX source is plugged in, or what to do if a primary DMX source is lost.
Echo stations and sensors now support preset control across multiple spaces. A single button push can control multiple rooms, including the ability to turn off lights in multiple spaces. Plus, Echo photo sensors support a new inhibit function that prevents the sensor from raising levels when they have been purposefully set to a lower level. This is useful in classrooms with projectors and many other installations.
All products in stock currently are being reworked to ship with this new code. Remember that only products with the microSD card slot are field upgradable. Please contact ETC Technical Service for details.
