Described as a state-of-the-art lighting console that functions as a highly advanced visual control surface, Martin Professional’s new M6 is designed to control everything from conventional and moving lights to the most advanced media server.
Incorporating what Martin says are the latest available technologies with an industrial multi-core processor, solid-state drives and custom-designed high-brightness touch screens, the M6 is capable of delivering up to 64 DMX universes directly from the console’s network ports without using costly external processors.
With features like a LiveBlender T-Bar, FastDial rotary encoders, Paired Playback buttons and sunlight readable, multi-touch BriteTouch display, Martin says that the M6 is its most advanced console design ever. It offers a total of 44 playbacks, including dual Main Go sections, 10 motorised faders and 12 additional faders, as well as a total of 17 encoders for parameter access.
Other features include two external DisplayPort touchscreens with up to 1920 x 1080 resolution per output, two FastTouch 3.5” touchscreens, eight FastBlend buttons and ten PlayPairs buttons with LCD displays.
Based on the M-Series software platform, Martin claims that the M6 – which is encased in a low profile housing with an adptable module layout – provides users with the ultimate control surface for fast programming and extensive playback control all from one console.
