ETC's ColorSource Linear family is
now complete with the launch of the
ColorSource Linear 4 fixture. This
is the third and longest variation of
the ColorSource Linear fixture and
measures a full two-metres in length.
Like the half-metre and one-metre
fixtures, Linear 4 comes in both
original and deep blue array options.
Both offer a richness of colour, and
quality of light output you've come to
expect from ETC ColorSource fixtures.
Every half-metre of the Linear
4 is individually addressable and
controllable from the simple 7
segment display. It's like having four
fixtures in one. Linear fixtures are
perfect for use as curtain warmers,
sidelights, an unbroken stage wash,
and in any installation location that is
too narrow for many other standard
fixtures.
MA Lighting's latest software
releases, grandMA2 3.3 and dot2 1.3
received considerable attention and
praise in Frankfurt. It was the same
for the MA Network Switch that was
equally well received and highlighted
the importance of network control.

Chauvet Professional's
latest
offerings include the Maverick MK3

to the brand's core philosophy, these
outstanding new fixtures offer lighting
professionals unprecedented levels of
performance and value.
Also debuting at Prolight + Sound
was the 1-metre ÉPIX Strip IP LED
