Fresnels have been known for their smooth wash since the beginning of time. Their adjustable zoom, barndoor accessories, and overall brightness make them an instant favorite for stages of every size and shape.

ColorSource Fresnel V combines the best features of original incandescent Fresnels with modern technology.


The five-color array includes red, green, blue, indigo, and lime. Get bold saturated colors like indigos and reds, and soft pastels for beautiful skin tone rendering – all from a single array.

Color integrity

ColorSource Fresnel V is factory-calibrated to ensure consistency between today’s fixtures and the ones you’ll use five years from now. The thermal management algorithms built into every ColorSource V fixture ensure that the colors you choose in rehearsal are the colors you get during the show.

13-44 degree zoom

Fresnel V has motorized zoom control, both via DMX or manually from the back of the fixture. With a 13-44° zoom range, you can seamlessly use Fresnel V as part of a wash in one scene and a beamy special in the next.

A Fresnel is only as good as its performance with barndoors, and Fresnel V delivers with smooth fall off and clean edges.

A more sustainable rig

Lower Watts

Lower watts for more output means lower power consumption and increased luminaires per circuit. But, perhaps just as importantly, it means lower heat, which leads to quieter fans and quieter fixtures overall. ETC obsesses over every detail, ensuring that the fixture you buy today will still be lighting incredible shows for years to come.

Long, light life

The entire ColorSource Fresnel V fixture has an L70 rating of 54,000 hours. To put that in perspective, with an average per-day usage of three hours, seven days a week, you are looking at a lifespan of 50 years from one single fixture.

You’ll feel confident in ColorSource V lighting your stage for a long time to come.
