PS-A014B Profile Spot Ellipsoidal Zoom, black
...Aaaaand someone else for ETC to sue the pants off of, hopefully. Oh, and check out how the fixture's upside down. Why don't people stop imitating and start innovating?
It even uses the HPL Lamp..
website. Looks like lots of people might like to sue them to me. Of course they are in China so good luck with that.
Hey, look! Their entire product line looks oddly familiar. Odd.
Especially this paragraph:
"Our high quality R&D team goes abroad to learn the latest patterns every year. We also invite clients to work with us in researching and developing new designs. Experienced technicians use computers to design new styles. Thus, we can bring forth new styles every year. The customers designated designs and ideas about products or parts are also welcome."
The product line looks more like they have a R&S department (Research and Steal).
Hey ST or any of the ETC crew before we keep bashing these guys can you tell us if they have licensed the use of the HPL and your zoom design? OR is this a "I'm on the phone with my lawyer right now... no comment" sort of situation?
Look at the accessory slot here:
Look at the color frame clip here:
Look at the whole unit here:
It looks like someone just took the pictures of the Source Four and the Source Four Zoom and photo shopped them and then rotated the pictures 180°. If that isn't it, I really do smell a Esinkoff/Cunningham law suit coming (it's gonna be tough but it probably will happen)
Watt moving ead wash looks oddly like a Robe mover...
Hahahahaha well said. xD
I love this:
"Our high quality R&D team goes abroad to learn the latest patterns every year."
Latest patterns = Learn what ETC did
Then they say this to make it sound like they really make their own gear:
"Experienced technicians use computers to design new styles."
gel frame clip and accessory slot were oddly shaped. (Hmmm, go figger) as they were only half there.
Innovation, ah yes.
"Computers to design new styles"
Yes, you do need computers to photoshop the Company logo off of a fixture.
This fixture is not licensed.
Well then gentlemen BLAST AWAY at these ignorant thieves who can steal "the latest patterns" but don't know how to hang it right side up for a photo!
and ST we wish you all best with the lawsuit.
Actually Alex, the fixture has the remarkable feature of an accessory slot on both the top and the bottom. In fact, it's all one slot. The only thing preventing a gobo holder from falling right though is the holder's handle, which means that the gobo is not centered in the gate, but that's a small price to pay for "innovation." The fixture even comes with a pattern holder that exhibits this anomaly.
Perhaps the manufacturer expected every fixture to have a Goboram installed.
