The lighting world continues to evolve, with the launch of a range of groundbreaking fixtures from ETC. The new fixtures – Selador Desire LED luminaires, Source Four Fresnel, and outdoor Source Four XT – advance ETC’s mission of enhancing the artistry and functionality of light. They are featured on a new website at www.layersoflight.com.
With the expansion of the legendary Source Four family of conventional luminaires and the popular Selador line of LED fixtures, lighting professionals have even more tools to achieve brilliant, high-quality lighting – for architectural installations, on stage, in the studio, indoors and outdoors.
ETC Product Marketing Manager David Lincecum says: “ETC has proven that we are the manufacturer to trust when it comes to both tungsten and LED sources. The new Source Four and Selador fixtures were designed with the user experience in mind. We talked to professionals in the field and designed the fixtures to meet their needs and simplify their work, while still producing spectacular light.”
ETC is introducing a new range of fixtures in the Selador family of LED luminaires. The Desire line offers three different PAR-shaped chassis:
- the bright D40 with 40 LED emitters;
- the super-bright D60 with 60 emitters;
- and the D40XT that is rated for exterior use.
The luminaires feature Selador’s award winning x7 Color System, which uses balanced blends of up to seven different shades of LED emitters to provide the widest colour gamut possible from LED fixtures.
The Desire line offers seven different colour arrays:
- Vivid for bold, statement-making colour mixing;
- Lustr+ for adjustable white and tinted light;
- Fire for saturated warm spectrum colours;
- Ice for stunning cool spectrum colours;
- and Studio HD, Studio Tungsten and Studio Daylight for installations that require the purest white light.
Each luminaire features an easy to read user interface that allows users to set special operational modes for specific applications. Energy efficient, functional and beautiful, the Desire line is unlike any other LED fixture range.
Source Four Fresnel
For the first time, ETC is offering a Source Four Fresnel.
Combining the light output and energy savings of the Source Four line with the unique optics of a Fresnel, it uses the same acclaimed HPL lamp family as other Source Four fixtures, so end users only need to stock a single lamp in their inventory. And the design of the socket and access door on the fixture means the lamp can be changed from underneath, without having to break focus.
The Source Four Fresnel is so efficient that a 750W unit can produce the same light output as traditional 1,000W Fresnels.
The Source Four Fresnel also features a full sized zoom knob that makes it easy to adjust from spot to flood. Professional lighting rigs are now complete.
Source Four XT
Lighting designers can now take the brilliance of the Source Four outdoors. The new Source Four XT HID spotlight boasts the same optical acuity, light output and energy efficiency that designers love in regular Source Four HID fixtures, but in a new format constructed to stand up to the elements.
IP65 rated for exterior use, the XT is watertight, dust tight and can operate safely in extreme temperatures. The sleek, low-profile design will blend unobtrusively into any exterior, long throw application.
The XT has separate focus and relamping tools so the fixture can be relamped without breaking focus or accessing the optical chamber. It features a 15° to 30° zoom and a 12,000 hour, 150W high intensity discharge source lamp. An external colour, pattern and glass holder makes it easy to adapt lighting for special events.
The XT can be ordered with a yoke, pole top mount or wall mount bracket for multiple mounting options.
ETC’s new Source Four XT is ideal for theme parks, retail, outdoor performance spaces, public sculptures and exterior signage.

ETC is launching a promotion to help customers get to know these products: Layers of Light.
