Martin showcases expanding LED range

Posted on Friday, September 11th, 2009

Martin Professional heads to PLASA09 armed with a new and rapidly expanding range of LED lighting solutions. On display will be Martin’s first LED moving heads, new LED video solutions, and new LED luminaires for indoor and outdoor use. A new compact beam fixture in the MAC family will also feature. Also on display will be a host of lighting and video control solutions, as well as updates in the Jem and Magnum line of fog and haze machines.

The MAC 401 Dual is a versatile LED moving head washlight with an innovative double-sided design that gives it flexible dual functionality, for example as a double washlight or beam reflective mirror. The 401 Dual’s colour mixing system fully blends colours at the source before they leave each lens, eliminating the problem of rainbow shadows and the messy multi-colour lens looks of traditional LED fixtures.

The MAC 301 Wash is an LED moving head washlight that features a powerfully fast zoom with an impressive zoom range. It is capable of producing a wide range of exceptional colours from rich saturated shades to uniform pastels through the entire zoom range. The fixture’s 108 high-power LEDs produce a bright and well-defined beam and its compact, lightweight design makes it suitable for rental applications, television use, night-time venues and more.

The LC Plus is a modular system of semi-transparent LED video panels with new generation technology that closely integrates light, video and set design for all new possibilities in indoor and outdoor staging.

The LC Plus is driven by Martin’s P3-100 System Controller, an ultra robust unit for advanced video signal processing and integration with lighting control. It includes built in scaling and de-interlacing, supports multiple video protocols and resolutions, and allows for direct DMX control of brightness, colour, pixelmapping and more. It also includes a built-in graphical user interface and other innovative features.

FlexDOT is a lightweight yet bright string of LED pixels that allows designers to break free from the flat, rectangular format of conventional LED displays and create customized video solutions with maximum artistic flexibility and a minimum of effort.

Martin MEL are the first fixtures in a new Martin line of IP65 rated outdoor LED luminaries. These attractively designed striplights are the first architectural fixtures from Martin to use tricolour LEDs for superior colour mixing directly at the lens resulting in an absence of colour shadows and a broader range of colour choices. The MEL range also incorporates a new custom-designed lens system for very narrow beam angles that have been difficult to achieve with tricolour LED fixtures in the past.

Martin MSL is a simple yet highly capable plug-and-play LED striplight designed to enhance interior spaces in a wide variety of applications.

The MAC 250 Beam is a punchy and compact beam fixture that generates variably sized pencil beams as well as wash effects via a motorized frost filter. It is available as an upgrade that installs in only five minutes on any existing MAC 250 Wash fixture.

Based on the modular design of the Maxxyz Compact lighting console, a new range of standalone modules has been developed for the Maxxyz system that allows users to design their own console.

Maxedia 4 is the new version of Martin’s Maxedia media server and is optimized to play H.264 MOV encoded video files using a state-of-the-art H.264 video decoder.

Martin’s ColorFox VX01 is the first lighting controller specifically designed for architectural use with dynamic colour changing fixtures.

The Jem ZR33 Hi-Mass has undergone a thorough makeover. The new Jem ZR44 Hi-Mass features improvements in overall performance and fluid type, as well as advances in digital functionality such as RDM compatibility.

Finally, the newly introduced Magnum range of fog and haze machines is now even more accessible thanks to new wireless control capability.
