Martin Professional to Unveil Visual LED Innovation at PLASA 2011

Posted on Monday, August 15th, 2011

As a proud sponsor of PLASA 2011 (September 11-14, Earls Court, London), Martin Professional looks forward to welcoming one and all to stand 1-F44 for a chat, a drink and an up-close look at its range of professional luminaries, creative LED panels, atmospheric effects and sophisticated control systems. Martin will also be participating in the STLD LED Shoot Out throughout the show, highlighting its LED range in a number of working areas.

The Martin UK team and Martin headquarter personnel will be on hand from September 11-14 to answer your every question.

Among the products to be seen are:

The EC-10 is a 10mm pixel pitch LED display panel that teams with Martin’s EC-20 to form a fully compatible EC family of LED displays that can be mixed and matched. Featuring the same award-winning, lightweight, and cable-free design for rapid deployment, the EC-10 is 100% compatible with the EC-20 in terms of color, setup, curving, control and processing, even accessories, allowing for seamless, mixed resolution visuals in one system.

Martin’s ultra-compact MAC 101 moving head wash is available in three white light versions (pictured) that expand its use to applications where pure white light is needed. The new variants incorporate cold and/or warm LEDs instead of RGB for a better white light quality and greater output.

With twice the lumen output and 10 times the intensity of the Stagebar 54, the Stagebar 2 is an extremely capable LED pixel bar and wash luminaire, the company says. A new lens design provides a narrower field of light for better beam control and greater light intensity. A choice of lens options provides designers with beam angle flexibility and includes an opal diffuser for scenic on-camera looks.

The P3-200 system controller is a new addition to Martin’s P3 system controller family for LED screens. The P3-200 combines all the celebrated features of the P3-100 yet adds SD-SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI input capability for optimized use in TV/Broadcast environments. It retains all the advantages of the P3-100 system controller like built-in scaling and de-interlacing, multiple video protocol and resolution support, direct DMX control of brightness, color, pixel-mapping and more.

A much-requested product, the P3-PC works as a PC-based P3 system controller for smaller Martin LED display setups up to 20,000 pixels; as an off-line editor for the P3-100 and P3-200 system controllers to preprogram shows anywhere on a PC; or as a tool for firmware uploads and addressing/testing Martin LED displays.

Martin Mx software 3.0 brings controller networking to a whole new level of functionality and simplicity, the company says. With the development of the MaxNet system, connecting multiple consoles and media servers on the same network has never been so easy, the company adds.

The DMX 5.3 splitter / RDM 5.5 splitter are the most economical devices available to ensure proper data transmission levels and economically protect controllers and DMX/RDM devices, the company says. Both splitters are useful in maintaining proper data levels over long runs or several runs of DMX signal with the RDM 5.5 Splitter also capable of effectively handling RDM data.
