Martin blows hot and cold7 April 2011
Martin Professional’s ultra-compact MAC 101 LED moving head wash is now available in three white light versions that expand its use to applications where high quality, 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. Ideal for highlighting skin tones, textiles, or set pieces, Martin says that the MAC 101 white light variants are already finding use in touring applications as a front light, main light, blinder or beam effect. According to the company, they look great on camera in TV studios and are ideal white light fixtures for car shows, showrooms, fashion shows, corporate events or any exhibition environment.
The MAC 101 CT incorporates both cold and warm white LEDs, allowing for easy changes in colour temperature from crisp cold looks to warm shades, and features simple intensity control. Each MAC 101 CT is colour temperature calibrated to ensure a high quality of white light and visual consistency across fixtures, a uniformity in light output that allows for seamless overlapping of beams on large stage and set areas.
The MAC 101 WRM uses pure warm LEDs to mimic the warmth of tungsten halogen and is intensity controllable, while the MAC 101 CLD is also intensity controllable, and uses pure cold LEDs for applications where only higher colour temperatures are required.
