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.

Source Four LED Series 3 has two different arrays, Lustr X8 and Daylight for beautiful colour or punchy white light

Ready for the professional stage

Source Four LED Series 3 is incredibly feature rich.

Wireless technology

CONTACTLESS COMMUNICATION FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICE.

Use NFC technology and ETC's Set Light App to quickly apply personality and DMX settings to Source Four LED Series 3.

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

City Theatrical's revolutionary Multiverse Wireless DMX is a match made in heaven with Source Four LED Series 3.

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.

Intuitive UI

The user interface was designed to make your workflow as efficient as possible. It is intuitive without compromising on feature set.

Source Four LED Series 3 UI is almost as beautiful as the light that comes out the front.
  • 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
