The LDI trade show has played a big part in ETC’s history, being the site of countless product launches that have propelled the company forward. In a nod to that tradition, the company will mark its 40th anniversary at this year’s LDI show by introducing a host of new products and giving attendees sneak peeks at upcoming gear. With so much to celebrate, ETC will have three stands – 2773, 2872 and 2972 – and a demo room – N115 – at the show, 21-23 October, in Las Vegas.
ETC will show the full ColorSource family, including the ColorSource and ColorSource AV lighting control desks and the brand new ColorSource Linear batten-style fixture. LDI show attendees can also get demos of the Irideon FPZ architectural luminaire and Prodigy hoists. And ETC’s stands will feature never-before-seen fixture, control, rigging and networking products, along with a big surprise that LDI attendees will be the first to see.
ETC will also offer educational opportunities at LDI 2016, including pre-tradeshow training on Eos-family consoles as part of the LDInstitute training sessions. ETC Eos-Family Product Manager Anne Valentino will help lead the ‘Of Course I Meant To Do That!: The Fine Art of Busking’ session on Friday 21 October. And on Saturday 22 October, ETC Outreach and Training Specialist Tom Littrell will present his incredibly popular ‘Fifty Shades of R80’ session on using additive colour-mixing in modern stage lighting.
ETC will honour another important tradition in its history by hosting its Student Session on Saturday 22 October. Students have the opportunity to chat with ETC employees, get their questions asked, learn about jobs, and win swag. In order to attend the Student Session, students must pick up a backstage pass in advance, from ETC’s LDI booth or demo room.
