The Martin Group is introducing two new products for the American market. The MAC 500SP and MAC 600NT will replace two of the products that continue to be affected by the injunction placed on them by Vari-Lite Inc which prevents their sale in the USA. Martin's own engineers have developed a completely new patented colour mixing system for the MAC 600NT and both products lie outside of the American patent, which is the basis of the litigation. The Federal Appeals Court in Washington DC is expected to hear the appeal some time in February. Regardless of the decision in the case, Martin can sell the new products in the American market.
