Martin Creates a New Star with MAC Ultra Series — AV.technology
“New standard” for stage lighting with best output, projection quality, next-generation framing system and low acoustic levels
Martin by HARMAN debuts the extremely bright and compact Martin MAC Ultra Performance and MAC Ultra Wash workhorse stage lights. Featuring benchmark lumen output across the zoom range, a uniquely advanced framing system, higher definition optics and low noise levels, the MAC Ultra family is perfect for concert and touring productions and equally applicable for noise-sensitive broadcast and heater applications.
Powered by Martin’s brightest engine yet, the MAC Ultra Series features a new 1150 W, 6000 K proprietary LED light engine. This gives MAC Ultra Wash the power to project 63,500 lumens and MAC Ultra Performance 46,500 lumens of output. And while next-gen output was a key design pillar, achieving visual quality that is more pleasing to the human eye was an equally important design consideration. With higher red content and better daylight balance, MAC Ultra produces dramatically rich, vivid colours and more natural skin-tones.
Creating peace of mind in fixture reliability was also a cornerstone of the MAC Ultra design. Without exception, every component can be relied upon to achieve consistent results from the first hour of use throughout the product’s lifetime – show after show, year after year. In fact, the minimum LED engine life is rated to exceed 50,000 hours and deliver over 90 percent of its initial output after 20,000 hours of usage at maximum power.
The extensive MAC Ultra feature package includes a wide zoom-range, precision focus-control, uniform colour mixing, variable CTO, additional colour and spectral correction filters, motorised frost for a softer field, high resolution dimming and strobing – all built into a sturdy and legendary MAC design. And, the new Martin Extended Framing System debuts in the MAC Ultra Peformance, offering more flexibility, easier programming, quicker response time and precision shutter angling.
