QVC Düsseldorf win ETC Source Four Revolution at Showtech

Reinhold Trilling, Director of Lighting and Set Design for TV shopping channel QVC in Düsseldorf, found his visit to the ETC stand at Showtech 2005 very worthwhile, winning an ETC Source Four Revolution automated luminaire in a free draw.
Trilling said: “I would never have imagined that I’d win. This Revolution’s going to get a real workout with us at QVC!” The two QVC studios broadcast live, 24 hours a day, year round, so flexibility and dependability – hallmarks of the Revolution – will be appreciated by QVC.
Opinion about this year’s Showtech fair in Berlin has been unanimously positive. Show organisers reported a 4.8% rise in attendees this year, many of whom visited the ETC stand and saw the unified European product portfolio, which includes the ETC, Transtechnik, IES and Avab lighting brands.
Interest was particularly high in ETC’s Congo lighting control console, which is fresh off its beta test debut at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kyiv and now shipping to customers worldwide. Four Congos handled a massive display of lighting effects, with perfect performance. Showtech visitors were eager to demo the new hybrid console, born of the union of ETC and Avab design minds and already a world-class master of extensive moving light rigs.
Crowds also gathered at the IES sine wave dimming display on the ETC stand. Prospective customers were impressed by IES’s long installation record in TV studios across Europe and the exceptional efficiency and cost savings of sine wave technology.
Whether centralised or distributed, IES sine wave dimming provides quiet operation and extended lamp life to any production environment.
