Themed Design: ETC introduces Unison® Mosaic™ show control line


ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls, Inc.) announces that it is expanding its extensive Unison control system family again, introducing the Mosaic line of show controllers. 

In an agreement with Pharos Architectural Controls Limited, ETC’s Unison Mosaic Show Control System is based on the award-winning Pharos™ show-control technologies, comprising a range of software, controllers, and accessories. Richard Mead, Managing Director of Pharos, says, “ETC are market leaders in system integration and lighting control for large-scale projects. They have been a great partner for Pharos as our distributor in North America, and we are delighted to be collaborating on this new venture with the launch of Unison Mosaic worldwide." ETC Architectural Market Manager Joe Bokelman adds, “Taking this next step allows us to merge the strengths of the Pharos products with the advantages of our Unison architectural control line. And, we leverage our sales and service networks — across the globe.” 
Show control is in demand as special effects go well beyond the stage into architecture and daily life. “The goal now is to differentiate a structure or venue and turn it into a dynamic landmark or memorable event by creating wonder and captivating people’s senses and attention. With our new Unison Mosaic Show Control System, any venue can now be the staging ground for a multimedia experience that might include interactive lighting shows, audio and visual spectacle, and more, ” says Bokelman. “Mosaic integrates architectural and entertainment technology — triggering and managing different technical elements like LEDs, moving lights, and other effects.” [ETC offers detailed Unison Mosaic show control information at

Mosaic combines innovative software and hardware. Mosaic Designer Software™ provides the framework for creating art, while Mosaic Show Controllers™ (MSCs) are the compact hardware solution, running events reliably and precisely, show after show. Engineered with unique environments in mind, Unison Mosaic Show Control presents a comprehensive control solution for architectural exteriors, retail, museum and themed spaces, art installations, special events, and innovative projects yet to be imagined. 

Says Bokelman, “By bringing these Mosaic show-control products into the Unison brand — alongside our Paradigm and SmartLink offerings — ETC puts it all together with the most comprehensive range of products for controlling LEDs and creating energy savings.”
