The Adelaide Festival Centre has welcomed 12 ETC Selador Desire D40 Lustr+ LED fixtures from Jands .

ETC’s Desire Series D40 fixture puts the seven-colour x7 system into a round theatrical wash light. Stage, studio or anywhere strong colour and high intensity is required, the D40 fixture is ideal thanks to its highly efficient primary lenses and careful colour choices.

The LED fixtures provide the widest range of spectrally-balanced saturated and tinted colour choices. 

Due to the LED fixtures’ rugged die-cast enclosure, noiseless fan-free operation, multiple lens options and advanced user interface, the D40s have multiple uses.

Adelaide Festival Centre head lighting technician Phil Haddy said, “We wanted a fixture that was robust and really an industry standard.

“The ETC brand is well known and respected, which is why we looked to them first. Plus the Selador Lustr has the seven colours and is more theatre-orientated without sacrificing the energy-efficiency and long life you expect from LEDs.”

The Selador Desire D40 Lustr+ fixtures have been performing well and responding beautifully, Mr Haddy said.

“I really like that they offer a lot more colours than other units do and their output is really good. The fact that you can use a variety of lenses to get your desired effect is useful too,” he said.

The Adelaide Festival Centre was the first of Australia’s performing arts centres and is still acknowledged by audiences and performers as the best of its kind in the country.
