    Using ETC Source Four for Broadcast Lighting - Lamp Intensity vs. Color Temperature?

    You're absolutely right! I may try to get to a good compromise with the video team. They use Ikegami camera bodies with RCU's for shading, and we also own video chip charts to aid with white balancing. Adjusting to the shading from the video end is alright. I think the main idea behind wanting...

    I like how you're thinking. The entire wall can be color balanced at the control processors, so it can be set to a warmer white balance. At this point though, I think all the content would be odd to the naked eye for the audience, since the content is designed for 5600K.

Our stage is small, ~25' across. I don't have access to our plot with the exact dimension right now. For...

    Hey there, I am a long-time reader but first-time poster. Booyah! I contract at a large campus of a local church, and we are planning to re-hang our front light ETC Source Four ellipsoidals. I am told that our goal color temperature on-stage 5600K. We are planning to use Full CTB gel to...

    Using Martin M-PC with ANY USB-DMX interface - Cheap!

    Hey guys! So as you know, DMX control has gotten extremely inexpensive, especially using cheap (yet in my opinion generally reliable) USB-to-DMX interfaces sold online. An example of such interfaces is this one, which you could buy right now for $16.81. While these solutions are certainly not...
