ETC fos/4 Panel
Over a decade of research has been realized in the fos/4 panels. It’s time to give your viewers the most realistic environments and skin tones possible. Why fix in postproduction what you can realize in production? fos/4 is available in both a tunable white light Daylight HDR array and a full color Lustr X8 array.
The user interface was designed with the cinematic workflow in mind. Features are simple and intuitive without compromising efficiency. The four backlit encoders change colors to correspond to the attributes they control on the screen.
Even new users can quickly and accurately adjust settings.
With fos/4 you have the option to change your fixture’s default philosophy. When working with additive color, the fixture often decides how to mix the color requested. There are many different options. Traditionally fixtures choose to mix the brightest version of the color you’re trying to make. While this gives you intensity, it does not give you quality light. Aiming for quality may mean a noticeable decrease in intensity. We’re now letting you decide what you want to see. Use the tune functionality to choose brightest, best spectral, or hybrid – which gives you a balance of the two.
Near field communication (NFC) enables you to push and pull information including fixture setup using ETC’s Set Light app from your mobile phone or tablet, even when the fixture isn’t powered. Or use City Theatrical’s Multiverse wireless DMX control with your console. Broadcast as many as 10 universes of DMX from a single transmitter without excessive radio energy.
Engineers and industrial design worked in tandem to bring you a fixture that not only works beyond expectation, but feels and looks good too. The ergonomic handle design doubles as a safety-cable loop. The smooth, sloping curves enhance the look of your studio, not detract with their boxy design.
