ETC Source Four with Wybron Inside colour scroller
|From 21 May, every new ETC Source Four Revolution moving light will come complete with a 24 frame capacity 'Wybron Inside' colour scroller, based on Wybron's industry-standard Coloram technology. The new scroller will further enhance the accuracy and speed of colour changes.
In response to suggestions from top-level lighting designers, ETC has worked with Wybron engineers to improve Revolution's pioneering cartridge-style colour scroller, giving pin-point precision every time and at much higher speeds. Wybron's technology combines with other exclusive Revolution features to offer unique "made for theatre" automated lighting.
The Wybron Inside Revolution will also feature a new complement of colours in its standard 12 colour scroll. One of the colours chosen is Rosco 361 - Hemsley Blue, named after legendary lighting designer and educator Gilbert Hemsley, who was fond of saying that Lake Mendota, near the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he taught, had "64 shades of blue". Hemsley Blue is a cool, clear blue in the middle of the spectrum he so loved, and so is a fitting tribute to the colourful man. Rosco donates all of the proceeds of this gel to the Hemsley Foundation, which benefits aspiring lighting design students, and ETC is proud to support their efforts.
In keeping with its policy to support existing product users, ETC is selling a kit for converting current versions of Source Four Revolution to the new scroller. The kit comes with complete instructions and pre-loaded code and takes about half an hour to install. The new scroller uses a different mounting technique for colour strings, so the previous template for colour strings is no longer valid, but a new template is included in the updated Revolution User Manual that ships with each new Revolution.
