Martin MAC Aura™: Single-lens washes to sweet eye-candy effects
Posted on Monday, September 12th, 2011
The Martin Professional MAC Aura is the first compact LED moving head wash light with zoom that offers never-before-seen eye-candy aura™ effects plus functions as a highly capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed color.
The Aura’s ground-breaking optical system combines two illumination systems in one luminaire – multicolor beam LEDs and a backlight LED lens array – to produce an all new visual palette that takes the synthetic look out of LED wash lights for truly unique lighting design possibilities.
Use the fixture as a powerful single-lens wash or employ a separate set of individually controllable multicolor LEDs for radical to subtle eye-candy looks. Mix, match, and create new effects that take the unnatural LED look out of LED lighting. For the ultimate in easy-to-produce visuals, use the Aura’s built-in FX engine to create extraordinary effects fast.
The MAC Aura houses an unrivalled 11-58° zoom for fantastic beam effects with great definition. The zoom is capable of angling wide or extremely tight for high intensity beam looks. A uniform field of light and excellent efficiency is maintained throughout the zoom range.
The MAC Aura delivers almost 4000 lumens of output in an ultra-compact 5.6 kg (12.3 lb) package for a performance to size ratio that you don’t find in comparable fixtures. And the Aura moves at a speed and precision that was once only associated with moving mirrors.
The MAC Aura is a versatile wash light of the highest caliber. It features superior color mixing with a broad range of shades from two independent color systems. Color shades mix completely uniform from vibrant saturated colors across beautiful pastels to authentic warm and cool shades of white.
Thanks to an excellent cooling system and high optical efficiency, the MAC Aura is extremely quiet for noise sensitive environments like TV and theatre.
Super low power consumption (1 amp) allows multiple fixtures to be daisy-chained on the same power line for an easier, faster and less expensive installation.
