    AutoYoke®

    The First Automated Lighting Solution Designed for Theatrical Use

    The AutoYoke® is the first affordable solution for converting theatrical lighting fixtures into full-featured moving lights. Smooth, accurate and quiet, the AutoYoke's DMX control allows you to pan and tilt the unit, as well as drive color scrollers. With the AutoYoke for Ellipsoidal, the optional DMX controlled AutoIris and AutoFocus also allow you to manipulate the size and sharpness of the beam of light. With the AutoYoke for Source Four™ PARNel, the motorized variable beamspread allows you to control the width of the beam of light.



    The First Automated Lighting Solution Designed for ETC's Source Four LED

    The AutoYoke® Source Four LED combines the quiet operation, accuracy, reliability, and professional quality of the AutoYoke®, with the brightness, built in color changing, energy efficiency, and long life of the Source Four LED, and is the solution for converting ETC’s state of the art Source Four LED into a full featured moving light. Smooth, precise, and quiet, the AutoYoke Source Four LED’s DMX control allows you to pan and tilt the unit, as well as adjust the iris, and change the focus (sharpness of the beam). Since Source Four LED lighting fixtures have color changing capabilities, there is no need for color scrollers, and no dimmer is required.
