ETC Source Four LED CYC

ETC’s Source Four range of luminaires are the world’s most popular stage and studio profile spots. The development of the 7 colour mixing Source Four LED profile delivered true colour fidelity for key lighting applications by using additional colours to increase the spectrum available to lighting designers and now the versatile Source Four LED can be used for Cyclorama application with the addition of the Source Four LED CYC adapter.

Other cyc lights only serve one function, so when a design doesn’t use a backdrop; the fixtures sit on a shelf and collect dust. In contrast, the Source Four LED CYC adapter can simply be removed when not required, and the Source Four LED luminaire can then be put to use in any other position, on or off stage by fitting a standard Source Four Shutter and lens assembly.

With the same light quality that the Source Four® family is known for, the Source Four LED CYC is incredibly smooth; producing a wash that looks like it came from incandescent sources. Fewer Source Four LED CYC units are needed to cover an entire cyclorama, because their light stretches so high and is evenly distributed, without scallops or visible gaps.


It’s like having a paintbrush right on stage. Taking advantage of the expansive colour range of the x7 Colour System™, the Source Four LED CYC creates the boldest hues, adding drama to any cyclorama. Its colour can be fine-tuned to accentuate or suppress certain hues in painted backdrops, creating an incredible artistic impact.

You don’t need a PhD in lenses to know how to use it. Instead of struggling with a complicated lensing formula that can take hours to get right, the Source Four LED CYC requires no additional lenses or diffusion. It simply affixes to any of the four Source Four LED arrays and is ready to go, reducing setup time and hassle.

The Source Four LED CYC is an economical addition to any light inventory.


Note: The Source Four LED CYC is not compatible with incandescent fixtures.
