ETC Selador Desire D40 Lustr+ Fixtures For The Adelaide Festival Centre

Posted on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Twelve ETC Selador Desire D40 Lustr+ LED fixtures have found a welcoming home at the Adelaide Festival Centre, which 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 nation .

ETC’s Desire Series D40 fixture puts the seven-colour x7 system into a round theatrical wash light. Highly efficient primary lenses and careful colour choices make the D40 fixture ideal for stage, studio and anywhere strong colour and high-intensity are requirements. The Selador x7 Color System produces the widest range of spectrally- balanced saturated and tinted colour choices available. D40’s rugged die-cast enclosure, noiseless fan-free operation, multiple lens options and advanced user interface make it ideal for multiple applications.

“We wanted a fixture that was robust and really an industry standard,” explained Phil Haddy, head lighting technician. “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.”

According to Phil, the Selador Desire D40 Lustr+ fixtures have been performing well and responding beautifully.

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

The photographs show the Silver Jubilee Organ at the Festival Centre bathed in colour light for the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s proms concert. By using the Selador Desire D40 Lustr+ fixtures to uplight the organ it became the backdrop for the concert.
