Martin Gets in Tune for PLASA Focus: Nashville
Join Martin Professional July 11-12 at the Municipal Auditorium in "Music City" -- Nashville, Tennessee -- for PLASA Focus where a new breed of moving head and much more will be on display at Martin stand 103.
Martin invites lighting professionals to get an up-close look at the new MAC Viper Profile along with a host of other innovative products like a new AirFX version in the MAC III family, an all-new VC series of creative LED video solutions, the award-winning MAC Aura and popular MAC 101 moving heads, a new portable lighting controller in the M-Series, and a new compact hazer in Martin's Jem family.
MAC Viper Profile: Following an overwhelmingly positive response from both lighting designers and rental companies, leading to the biggest pre-sale success ever in Martin's history, this new profile is now shipping. According to the company, its efficient optical system outperforms market-leading profiles in the 1,200W range and with over 26,000 lumens of power from a 1000W HID source -- it is brighter than 1,200W fixtures, and outperforms them in terms of speed and compactness. Power consumption is lower and output is approximately 55% more efficient than the 1,200W fixtures it replaces.
MAC III AirFX: The MAC III AirFX is a versatile beam, effects, and wash luminaire in one and is the latest high-performance 1,500W moving head in Martin's MAC III family. Capable of projecting a dense, hard-edge beam with stunning mid-air aerial effects, the company says the MAC III AirFX's unique optical system allows it to adjust from a tight beam to a wash instantly. Beam gobo projections can adjust along the entire zoom range for a refreshingly diverse variety of mid-air looks, and the fully linear zoom gives no visible beam jump from tight to wide.
Creative LED Video series: Martin launches the world's first series of true video products to combine simplicity with quality. Driven by Martin's P3 System Controller family, part of the series is formed by a variety of video dots called VC-Dot 1, VC-Dot 4, and VC-Dot 9 (each offering a different size and brightness). VC-Dots are the perfect solution for integrating LED video technology into a fašade, stage design, ceiling, or any other structure (indoors or out). Also available is the VC-Grid 25, a small, 200 x 200mm LED video module with 25mm pixel pitch. Its compact size makes it extremely suitable for integration into stage designs, set elements, creative ceilings, and more. Used with or without a front diffuser, multiple VC-Grids can be combined in a countless variety of ways for ultimate design freedom.
P3 Power Port 1500: The P3 PowerPort 1500 is an integrated power and data processor for Martin's range of creative LED video products, including the VC-Dots and VC-Grids. When driven by one of Martin's P3 System Controllers, it powers the connected products with image processing capabilities and easy setup and configuration.
MAC Aura: The MAC Aura is the first compact LED moving head wash light with zoom that uses two independent color systems to produce new eye-candy effects plus functions as a capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed color. Its optical system combines multicolor LEDs with backlight aura color mixing to produce an all-new visual palette.
MAC 101: Small and light, this simple LED moving head wash light is ideal for easy-to-produce yet high-impact looks. Featuring a tight and bright beam, rapid movement and calibrated colors, according to the company, the MAC 101 comes with a low price tag. Useful as a dynamic replacement for static PAR cans, it is an effective and versatile wash light.
M2GO: Equipped with a fast, dual-core processor, the M2GO answers the demand for a more powerful lighting controller in a smaller form. It offers a professional level of features in a portable package and the company says it has been developed with cost, ergonomics, feature set, size, and weight in mind.
Jem Compact Hazer Pro: The Jem Compact Hazer Pro is a new haze machine from Martin Professional designed for the highly demanding professional market. Its ability to produce atmospheric haze effects in a short period of time makes it ideal for nearly any application. Low noise operation at slow fan speeds means it is suitable for noise-sensitive environments while a host of other innovative features make the Jem Compact Hazer Pro the perfect choice for rental houses, shows, theatres, TV studios, clubs, bars, cruise ships, theme parks, and much more.
