A New Year - New Gear

A new surprise came out of Middleton Wisconsin this week when Electronic Theatre Controls announced their retrofit LED engine for the Source 4 Elipsoidal (that there is over 1.7 million of in the world and counting).

It's called the Source 4WRD or Watt Reduction Device. and is a replacement for a standard Source Four® burner assembly that will convert the HPL source to a white-light LED and provides a significant reduction in power consumption.

The "simple and quick upgrade" is nondestructive and takes less than a minute. In most cases it can even be done without breaking the fixture’s focus. Source 4WRD LED is theatrically dimmable via DMX or line dimmable, with a traditional LED curve, to allow flexibility for your installation. And, because it is an LED source, your fixtures will run cool and efficiently without lamp replacements.

• Can be fitted to any Source Four standard ellipsoidal fixture body (not for use with Source Four Par/nel, Fresnel or jr.)
