ETC has updated its Mosaic Show Controller X (MSC X) with new video I/O options and an audio input for two Linear Timecode channels, removing the need for a separate RIO-A unit.
As a result, units with have a new part number and model numbers will add “Mk3” at the end. With the new model comes new connectors. The video input accessory (-VCC), if equipped, changes from DVI to HDMI. Video output is now a DisplayPort-style connector. The serial port on the unit (RS-232) has been updated from connectorised to terminal-style interfaces. Audio output is handled with either an S/PDIF (RCA) port or terminal connectors. Audio input for linear timecode is also via terminal interface.
The manufacturer has also expanded its Source Four Mini and Irideon fixture offerings with F-Drive compatible options, with these low-voltage versions joining the recently released OneTrack models. According to the manufacturer, F-Drive compatibility in Source Four Mini and Irideon fixtures decreases costs while increasing portability and ease of installation. The Source Four Mini LED can now be controlled via DMX for the first time to provide “a more beautiful, smooth dim” in any installation. F-Drive compatible Source Four Mini LED and Irideon luminaires are available in all of ETC’s existing colour temperature and CRI options and are also available in canopy or portable options.
