ETC was started 30 years ago with the conviction that there was a better way to make a lighting control console. There was. We developed one of the first microprocessor-based systems, which boasted the then blindingly fast 2 MHz 8080 CPU! Now our popular lighting control consoles are thousands of times more powerful than those groundbreaking early versions. And the thousands of lighting systems ETC has produced over the years keep working everyday. People want to light better, so they light with ETC.
