ETC Source Four Dimmer Hits The Catwalk In St Petersburg

Russian special events company Art-Festival chose to use 180 ETC Source Four fixtures with attached Source Four Dimmers on a recent series of high end fashion shows in St Petersburg.

Art-Festival wanted the best light to accentuate the work of the Russian and international fashion designers. “We looked at all leading international fashion shows for direction,” said Armin Kloss, ETC’s Regional Sales Manager for Eastern Europe.

“After extensively testing modern professional lighting sources, we opted for a classic solution.

“Our tungsten Source Four fixtures delivered great results during the tests, while LED fixtures from other manufacturers weren’t bright enough and not up to the level of the conventional Source Fours.”

Due to the large number of fixtures clustered close together on the lighting rigs, Art-Festival wanted a flexible solution that would require very little cabling, so they decided to use Source Four Dimmers with ES (Electronic Silent) technology to provide per-fixture distributed dimming.

The CE version of the Source Four Dimmer turns the 750W Source Four into more than 1,200W of light, outperforming 230V, 1,200W condenser profiles.

Moreover, since the Source Four Dimmer is attached directly to the Source Four fixture, it eliminates the need for a centralised dimmer. 

“Source Four fixtures fit the demands of this type of installation the best,” explained Art-Festival General Director Kirill Korobov. 

“In addition, the Source Four Dimmer is the most durable, state of the art and economical option on the market in St Petersburg when it comes to energy consumption.”

The Source Four fixtures and Source Four Dimmers have had a lot of turns on the catwalk this season, having lit St Petersburg Fashion Week, Aurora Fashion Week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Day St Petersburg, DLT Fashion Show, and Elle Fashion Days.
