Sept. 15th — Lead time on shipping ColorSource Spot is estimated at 12 weeks * once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).
This longer than normal lead time is a result of the global chip shortage, and affects all manufacturers. While ETC has successfully redesigned the affected parts in this fixture, they are still working through a very large backlog. Unfortunately, the underlying chip shortage is likely to continue into 2023. While we all hope its resolved sooner, we encourage customers to plan for extended lead times.
* Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update. Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
The ColorSource Spot outperforms other four-color LED profiles, thanks to its precise combination of red, green, blue and lime emitters. ETC applied its extensive color-mixing knowledge to the fixture to ensure that it can achieve brighter, richer and more believable colors than other budget LEDs. And it accepts all the Source Four LED accessories, zoom and fixed-focus lens tubes, and CYC and Fresnel adapters. Available in Original, Deep Blue, or variable-white Pearl array options.
Best for all-around use and what we recommend for most customers. Uses a regular blue LED for beautiful sky blue, turquoise, and pastels that render individual skin tones naturally, yet still delivers a punch with blue and magenta colors.
Best when saturated colors, especially deep blue, purple, and magenta, is what you're looking for. Uses the same LEDs as the Original, but replaces the blue LED with an Indigo one, which reduce sky blue and turquoise colors.
Variable 2700K - 6500K white-light option with warm and cool LEDs. Brightest output for venues like studios and architectural installations. Does not allow color mixing or tint correction.
