ARRI Consoles

ETC sold consoles to ARRI (GB) who then rebranded the units with their own logos and renamed. Below is a table correlating the ARRI names to the ETC names. Functionally the consoles are almost identical and you should refer to the relevant ETC product page and user manuals. As a side note, ARRI (GB) was eventually sold to ETC and ETC Europe was born in 1995. Today it is known as ETC Ltd.

The units are 'almost' the same but many of the ARRI consoles had a small effects PCB built into the left side of the facepanel.
