USA - Martin by Harman has unveiled the Martin MAC Ultra Series with two “extremely bright” new workhorse stage lights – the MAC Ultra Performance and MAC Ultra Wash.
Featuring high lumen output across the zoom range, a new framing system, high-definition optics and low noise levels, the MAC Ultra family is ideal for concert and touring productions as well as noise-sensitive broadcast and theatre applications.
With high output a key design pillar, the MAC Ultra Series is powered by a 1,150W, 6000K proprietary LED light engine, Martin’s brightest to-date. It gives the MAC Ultra Wash the ability to project 63,500 lumens of output and the MAC Ultra Performance, 46,500 lumens. In addition, with higher red content and better daylight balance, the fixtures produce rich, vivid colours and more natural skin-tones, says the company.
Key features of the MAC Ultra series include a wide zoom range, precision focus control, uniform colour mixing, variable CTO, additional colour and spectral correction filters, motorized frost for a softer field, high resolution dimming and strobing. Debuting in the MAC Ultra Performance is the new Martin Extended Framing System, which is said to offer more flexibility, easier programming, quicker response time and precision shutter angling.
To deliver “reliable and consistent result for years to come”, Martin’s new LED engine is rated to exceed 50,000 hours and deliver over 90% of its original output, even after 20,000 hours of use at maximum power, the company says.
“We are so proud to be able to introduce MAC Ultra to our incredibly loyal client base of designers and customers,” comments Peter Skytte, Harman Professional Solutions director of Lighting Product Management. “These fixtures were specifically designed to be the lights that they can achieve more with than ever before. From lumen output we never thought possible to you-have-to-see-it-for-yourself visual quality, to hands-down, rock-solid reliability, there is not one facet of this product that we didn’t over scrutinise and challenge our engineering team to get just right. The result is a feat of innovation like nothing else we’ve ever attempted. I encourage everyone to experience these lights for themselves and imagine the possibilities created by this new standard for stage lighting.”
