Source Four

Officially, Source Four is the name of a family of luminaires from Electronic Theater Controls (ETC), so named because the patented HPL lamp's filament contains four segments--"four sources." Included in this family are the Source Four Par, Source Four PARNel, Source Four Revolution, Source Four jr, Source Four MultiPAR, and the Source Four. In common usage, "Source Four" refers solely to ETC's ground-breaking Ellipsoidal Reflector Spotlight. Released in 1992, it redefined the ERS and has become the industry standard. They are so widely used that some people now refer to all ERS instruments as "Source Fours". Over three million units have been sold since 1992.
