MAC TW1: The MAC TW1 is now available with a new breed of 80 V lamp that offers a far brighter output to traditional mains voltage lamps. The MAC TW1 is a 1200 W Tungsten wash fixture that brings to the stage avant-garde features and patent pending technology to equip the lighting designer with the broadest possibility of effects, colors and design. A twin lens zoom system, full CMY color mixing and choice of internal or external electronic dimming are contained in a sturdy magnesium structure that allows the fast and silent convection of heat away from the back of the fixture.
Stagebar 54: The Stagebar 54 is a bright, high efficiency LED pixel bar with RGB, Amber and White color mixing (RGBAW) for a broader color spectrum and greater range of pastel shades than other LED lights in its class. It functions as a pixel bar for displaying imagery and video or as a wash luminaire for floodlighting surfaces and stages. Each pixel is color calibrated to a standard factory setting to guarantee LED color consistency. Light output is constant, regardless of ambient temperatures, and lens options give greater flexibility for a wider variety of application. Mounting, connectivity and serviceability are all made easy, ensuring the fixture’s long term performance. Industry standard DMX 512 controllable with HSI (Hue, Saturation, Intensity) control, Stagebar 54 is light weight yet built to withstand the rigors of the touring market. It comes in a small or large version.
LED Video Screens: Martin now offers a semi-transparent, modular system of LED panels, perfect for displaying film, digital images and graphics. Useful in a wide variety of applications - and specially prepared for TV studios due to the (Genlock) feature - no cumbersome external power supplies are necessary as each unit features a direct power in and power out connector. Each unit contains a switch mode power supply covering all worldwide voltages, so there is only need for one unit type anywhere you travel. In addition, the panels have direct in- and out-DVI connections for video signal with simple daisy chain capability. Light weight, yet with a tough construction built to withstand the rigors of the touring market, the panels are exceptionally service friendly. Easy to assemble, they come in a 2 x 1 or a 1 x 1 meter size.
Maxxyz 2.0: Martin Professional has released application software Version 2.0 for both the Maxxyz and Maxxyz PC controllers. Martin has also released Maxxyz OS (Operating System) 2.0. Version 2.0 software adds a host of useful features and feature updates to the Maxxyz controller range including a complete redesign of the Graphical User Interface, fixture cloning, an auto update feature, online help support, new menu system, hot keys keyboard shortcuts and much more.

Color Fox: Color Fox is the world's first intuitive interface to dynamic light. Designed as a wall-mounted DMX touch panel, it is the ideal solution for any of Martin's architectural color-changing luminaires. A unique aspect of the Color Fox is its ability to handle and interface with any type of color-mixing system. The unique color management system can allow for combinations of various luminaire types - RGB fluorescent, LED, and CMY metal halide - and then coordinate between them for best color uniformity. Offering control of up to 100 individual fixtures (maximum of 512 channels), Color Fox’s software offers static and dynamic presets and lets users alter the hue, saturation and intensity of their surroundings.
Light Fox: Light Fox is an easy-to-use, wall-mounted, playback controller optimized for Martin’s range of Cyclo RGB+W fluorescent fixtures and StageBar 54 series but capable of controlling all types of RGBWA fixtures. Easy to install, up to 20 static or dynamic Presets can be recalled for simple and quick atmosphere adjustments. Intensity and speed are adjustable for instant mood manipulation.
RGB Laser 1.6: Martin innovation combines with a spectrum of deep saturated colors in a compact laser unit that revives the eighties obsession with laser effects. The DMX controllable Martin RGB Laser 1.6 is a unique and hassle-free Class 4 white light laser with balanced cool white that comes in an extremely compact housing – unique for a laser with such power and speed. With simple plug-and-play operations, software package included, hundreds of pre-installed effects, and a cooling system that eliminates the need for expensive and bulky water cooling, the RGB Laser 1.6 is all about performance made easy.
Mania EFX700: The Mania EFX700 is a stunningly visual, high powered 150 W discharge effect light - a dazzling flower effect with an array of vibrant colors, 12 cool new gobo designs, mechanical dimmer, separate shutter for fast strobe effect, and 12 pre programmed macros to keep the dance floor jumping. Astoundingly bright for a 150W discharge effect, the Mania EFX700 casts an impressive and widely dispersed display of aerial effects from a rotating parabolic mirror dish.
Mania EFX800: The Mania EFX800 is a 150 W discharge effect light - a broad sweeping flower effect punched through a rotating glass color paddle. The light output has an amazing 170 degree spread - wider than any flower effect light in its class, which means you can cover more space with fewer fixtures. The EFX800 houses a separate gobo wheel with 12 gobos, rotating parabolic mirror dish, mechanical dimmer, separate shutter for fast strobe effect and 12 pre programmed macros.
