Martin Lighting’s MAC Viper XIP

USA - City Theatrical now offers three standard beam control accessories designed to fit Martin Lighting’s MAC Viper XIP lighting fixture, which includes the MAC Viper XIP Follow Spot Handle, MAC Viper XIP Concentric Ring, and MAC Viper XIP Hexcel Louver.

These three beam control accessories were developed based on City Theatrical’s understanding of the unique accessory needs of lighting professionals, and the high demand for this moving light fixture in the market. City Theatrical currently offers 40+ styles of beam control accessories for 15 different Martin Lighting moving light fixtures, which are available through the City Theatrical dealer network.

City Theatrical’s engineers and craftspeople design and create lighting accessories, like the new MAC Viper XIP Follow Spot Handle (P/N 2815), based on working with designers and manufacturers every day to develop and make new products from their New Jersey-based factory. The MAC Viper XIP Follow Spot Handle is the first handle developed as an easy and economical way to convert the MAC Viper XIP light fixture into a follow spot for live entertainment applications.

Prior to this product, there was no place to put a handle on this sleek fixture. This Follow Spot Handle includes a balanced bar that easily attaches to the fixture in order to manually spotlight talent in performance. The MAC Viper XIP Follow Spot Handle is IP65 rated for indoor and outdoor performance applications.

City Theatrical Concentric Rings deliver 45° cutoff of light spill but from a shorter depth. When space is at a premium, such as on moving lights hung in a tight rig, using a MAC Viper XIP Concentric Ring (P/N 2816) would be a top choice for designers seeking beam control. Concentric Rings are also used to create a ‘Svoboda-like’ style on lighting fixtures that are in view of the audience.

Serving a similar beam control function to a City Theatrical Top Hat or Concentric Ring at a minimal depth, MAC Viper XIP Hexcel Louvers (P/N 2817) provide beam control and 45° cutoff of light spill. City Theatrical Hexcel Louvers use cells that are 3/8” x 3/8” x 3/8” deep, and provide a sleek appearance when mounted on the lighting fixture.

In addition to these three accessories, City Theatrical’s Multiverse Connect Module was developed to fit Martin Lighting’s MAC Viper XIP fixture. This wireless DMX/RDM plug in solution was introduced at LDI Show 2023 and won the LDI Lighting Award in the Controls Category. The Multiverse Connect Module will be available through City Theatrical dealers during Summer 2024.
