Martin Professional launches Stagebar 2
Posted on Monday, February 14th, 2011
With twice the lumen output and 10 times the intensity of the Stagebar 54, Martin Professional’s Stagebar 2 LED pixel bar and wash luminaire features a new and advanced lens design that provides a narrower, more concentrated field of light for better beam control and greater light intensity for overall improved floodlighting capability. A choice of lens options, which includes an opalescent diffuser lens for scenic on-camera looks, provides designers with beam angle flexibility.
Overall responsiveness of the Stagebar 2 has been improved for more reactive dimming, colour fades and visual content response like pixel mapping. Additionally, fan noise from the automatic heat management system has been reduced for the benefit of TV studios and other noise-sensitive environments.
Useful for displaying imagery and video or for floodlighting surfaces and stages, the Stagebar 2 offers “a vast gamut of colours and wide range of shades” from an RGBAW colour system. Each diode has been calibrated for standardized brightness and colour performance. The Stagebar 2 allows for individual pixels or groups of pixels to be controlled for increased design creativity.
The Stagebar 2 is an easy setup. Using 5-pin XLR and PowerCon connectors, it is simple to daisy chain both data and power and requires no external power supplies or additional cables and DMX boxes. A floor stand is available as an option.
