About ETC – High End Systems:
High End Systems Inc. began as a grassroots venture in Austin, TX between a musician, a DJ, and a photographer. Our mission has always been to provide quality lighting products with great service. We’ve gone on to become a global industry leader and innovative force by introducing a series of ground-breaking new technologies that helped define the industry.
We at High End Systems Inc. are proud to call ourselves an ETC company as of April, 2017. Our offices are located in Austin, TX as they have been for years. Combined with ETC we represent one of the most powerful entertainment lighting manufacturers around the globe. Now in our fourth decade of operation, we’re proud to be a pioneer in high power LED automated lighting, a pioneer in digital lighting fixtures, and producer of industry preferred lighting controllers for live event and concert touring applications.
At High End, we innovate and create the lighting products and control systems that illuminate some of the world’s biggest artists on the largest stages. Our portfolio also contains film and television studios, cruise ships, corporate events, theme parks, churches, restaurants and retail spaces.
We attribute our success to staying in touch with the needs of our customers and community. Product research and development is an ongoing collaboration between in-house engineers and lighting professionals in the field and this collaboration is largely to thank for our status as a major industry innovator and intellectual property holder.
As members of the entertainment community, we know reliability is paramount. We maintain rigorous manufacturing standards, while providing industry-leading customer support services.
