ETC Desire D40 Vivid LED Par - White

This is from ETC's Desire Series of lighting and is a D40 Vivid wash fixture – for high-intensity color mixing across the spectrum for widest color wash use. This model has a usage rating of IP20 (interior) and comes in a white finish with connector of your choice: Bare End, Edison, Stage Pin or Twist Lock.

The Desire D40 luminaire combines 40 Luxeon® Rebel emitters onto one unit, for bright, efficient lighting. The PAR-shaped washlight is a multipurpose tool that can be combined into a rig with conventional fixtures or used by itself. The user-interface on the rear of the unit puts the control in your hands – Desire luminaires can be managed by any RDM-enabled controller or on their own.

Each fixture offers Quick Setup options, so you can quickly and easily adjust the luminaire’s performance. Stage, XT (Exterior)/Architectural, High-Impact, Studio and General settings further customize the light output for specific uses.

‘LED lighting doesn’t have to be ugly.’ That’s the philosophy behind the x7 Color System™ technology built into every Desire luminaire. While other LED fixtures on the market produce muted colors with a small range of hues and unnatural white light that makes everything look gray and washed out, Desire luminaires offer unprecedented color capabilities for beautiful, pure light. By combining up to seven LED colors per fixture, the x7 Color System creates a balanced blend of deep, saturated colored or natural white light. And with the Desire luminaires, you get even more color flexibility through the Adaptive Color Control system.

There are five DMX profiles to choose from – Calibrated RGB, Calibrated HSI, Calibrated HSIC, Direct, and Studio – so you can decide how the luminaires will perform. The additional Red Shift option allows the Desire fixtures to mimic a tungsten fade, and the Plus 7 Mode gives you control over each LED color to increase or decrease individual colors. Using the built-in color-pickers on ETC lighting control consoles, you can pick a gel match for the Desire fixtures to produce, or you can modify the color to get the exact shade you want. D40’s rugged die-cast enclosure, noiseless fan-free operation, multiple lens options and advanced user interface make it ideal for multiple applications.
