Martin Professional at PLASA 08

Posted on Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Martin Professional will be heralding a new era in moving head performance at this year’s PLASA exhibition with two 1500W luminaires in the award-winning MAC range; the MAC III Profile, the first product in Martin’s third generation of MAC moving heads, with enhanced design, optical efficiency, colour mixing, and much more; and the MAC 2000 Wash XB, an extra bright version of the industry standard MAC 2000 Wash.

Also on display will be EvenLED, a modular LED system for even field projection; new hazers in the Jem and Magnum lines; and several new products and product updates in Martin’s controller range. Martin will also show the Exterior 1200 Image Projector and new indoor and outdoor LED luminaires.

The MAC III Profile is the first product in Martin’s third generation of MAC moving heads. It features a package of performance features, such as outstanding colour mixing with a broader colour range plus deeper more vibrant hues, a fat beam look, up to 75% more output than current 1200 W profile fixtures, wide zoom range, new gobos, animation effects, very fast effects and movements and low noise cooling.

The MAC 2000 Wash XB is now even brighter. Using a 1500 W lamp the MAC 2000 Wash XB kicks out over 60,000 lumens of power to make it 40% brighter than its MAC 2000 Wash brethren. New efficient fans, ballast and starter combine with tried and trusted MAC 2000 modularity, optics and effects to “produce the most advanced wash light on the market” – all housed in the same compact MAC 2000 design.

An upgrade kit is available that easily brings existing MAC 2000 Wash fixtures to the XB level of performance. The Upgrade Kit includes a new 1500 W lamp, lamp socket module, electronic ballast, starter, heat filter, fans for more efficient cooling, colour mixing module, base cover plates with new logo plus other minor parts.
