Microhire add more Martin MAC Auras to popular venues
Posted on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013
Last year Microhire installed eight Martin MAC Auras into Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf and they have been so successful Microhire are now in the process of ordering fourteen more for the new Doltone House Hyde Park.
The MAC Aura is the first compact LED moving head wash light with zoom that uses two independent colour systems to produce new ‘eye-candy’ effects plus functions as a highly capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed colour.
“We were looking for a fixture that could provide a colour wash over a broad area from fixed locations within a venue that has many operable walls,” explained Thomas Armati, General Manager at Microhire, on the initial purchase. “The MAC Auras have a broad zoom range – narrow enough for good beam looks but can also go wider to do a good wash without losing a lot of intensity. The speed of the pan and tilt is great. The colours you can get out of them are fantastic; really good colour mixture and colour spectrum from pastel tints to deep saturated colours.”
The MAC Auras have proved to be a valuable tool for the venue with their small and attractive appearance a bonus for the venue. This small moving head fixture can fit into limited spaces and not be obtrusive.
Not only have the MAC Auras been providing clients with fabulous colour washes, their Aura capability – the ground-breaking optical system that combines multicolour LEDs with backlight colour mixing – has delivered the wow factor to many events.
“The MAC Auras have performed really well ,” commented Thomas. “They create a great effect and certainly deliver bang for buck.”
