ColorSource PAR

Washlight workhorse

An LED luminaire crafted by lighting experts, the ColorSource PAR uses a balanced recipe of red, green, blue, a twist of lime, and an extra dash of red to provide a richness of color only possible from ETC LED luminaires. The extremely lightweight ColorSource PAR outputs bright, beautiful light, is easy to use with or without a lighting desk and lives up to ETC's high standards for quality.

 

Long, light life

ColorSource PAR has been independently tested using the LM-84 standard. These tests have confirmed what we knew from the beginning: ColorSource PAR is built to last! 55,000 hours. The math: if you ran a ColorSource PAR for three hours a day, seven days a week, all year long – we are talking about 50 years of light.

That's a lot of beautifully-lit shows.

 

 

Color Integrity

ColorSource luminaires are factory-calibrated to ensure consistency. They feature a four-color mixing system offering bright, vibrant colors and perfectly-mixed pastels. The thermal management algorithms built into every ColorSource fixture ensure that the colors you choose in rehearsal are the colors you get during the show.
