Martin Professional teases PLASA visitors3 September 2010
Martin Professional has indicated that it will reveal a surprise new product at PLASA (Earl’s Court, London, September 12 – 15) that will be “a springboard for revolutionary lighting designs” – but is giving no details, insisting that visitors come to its stand (1.F44) to find out more.
Less surprising is the range of products Martin will also be highlighting at PLASA, with its latest professional luminaires, creative LED panels, atmospheric effects and control systems. These include the MAC 350 Entour LED profile fixture that the company says surpasses what has previously been possible in terms of brightness, efficiency and compactness in a hard edge LED fixture.
The MAC III Performance is a high-output profile moving head with a new interleaved framing system with full crossover of each blade and claimed industry-first continuous rotation for new projection, framing and effects possibilities. Representing the new generation of indoor and outdoor LED screens is the EC-20 which Martin says combines the image quality and precision of conventional high resolution screens (20 mm pixel pitch) with the creativity and low weight of mesh type screens.
Also on show will be what Martin describes as an inexpensive kit that easily converts any MAC 2000 Wash XB or MAC 2000 Wash luminaire into a powerful beam fixture.
Described as its next generation lighting controller, the Martin M1 all-in-one lighting desk is said to have the full power of a larger desk and the agility of a smaller one.
Maxedia 4 includes, according to Martin, dozens of new features and improvements that make it even easier to use as well as new plug-ins for never before seen effects, new PufferSpheret plug-ins, new super fast capture cards and other update
