Introducing the new MAC One, a trailblazing creative BeamWash and Eye-Candy fixture that transcends expectations, empowers limitless creative expression and revolutionizes stage design.
Featuring captivating aerial effects, a Fresnel lens, an innovative 24 RGB LED backlight system, 2,400 lm output and narrow beam intensity of 300,000 cd in a compact 4 kg / 8.8 lb form factor; MAC One defies limitations for creative potential while remaining highly portable.
HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, today announced the launch of the Martin MAC One, its revolutionary new Beam, Wash and Eye-Candy fixture, featuring a captivating Fresnel lens that transforms any stage or event into an extraordinary visual spectacle.
MAC One excels in three powerful feature areas. First, its narrow, high-intensity beam packs the same punch as larger, heavier fixtures to enable robust and vibrant aerial effects. Its stunning Fresnel lens creates a soft wash with a wide 4 to 27-degree zoom range, delivering seamless transitions and engaging visual effects. Rounding out the robust feature-set is an innovative backlight system with 24 RGB effect LEDs within the lens to guarantee memorable and show-stopping visual experiences.
With an impressive output of 2,400 lm and a narrow beam intensity of 300,000 cd, MAC One's performance is unparalleled in its category. Powered by a custom-developed 120 W RGBL (Red, Green, Blue, Lime) LED engine, it ensures higher light quality (CRI, TM-30, TLCI) than traditional RGBW fixtures, appealing to discerning lighting designers.
MAC One stands out against competing fixtures by delivering an innovative combination of features in an incredibly compact and low-weight form-factor. The fixture is easy to handle and manage, opening up a world of creative possibilities for lighting designers and users. More fixtures can be used in a show without compromising weight or space limitations, resulting in lower transport costs and a significant return on investment for rental companies.
Whether you are a lighting designer, rental company, or event organizer, MAC One is the answer for creating big looks with many fixtures, utilizing a compact fixture for tight spaces or enthralling the stage with captivating eye-candy effects. Transcend expectations, empower creative expression and revolutionize the stage with MAC One.
"We can’t wait for LDs and users to experience MAC One for themselves. To say it’s like nothing else out there, really is an understatement as it packs so much creative potential into such a compact package,” said Wouter Verlinden, Martin Product Manager, Creative LED, Lighting, and Control. “Our goal was to combine a nice punchy beam with that classic throwback Fresnel lens and then once we added the RGB effect LEDs, it really has become a fixture that can do so many things in so many different applications. We look forward to everyone getting to experience it in person.”
A Punch Above + Well Defined Intensity
With 2,400 lm output from a form factor just above 4kg, MAC One features great output to size ratio, delivering impressive light output from a compact and lightweight fixture. Additionally, MAC One’s narrow beam intensity of 300,000 cd ensures a well-defined, tight, fast, and responsive mid-air beam.
High Quality Light Output + Beaming Brilliance
Martin’s custom-designed 120 W RGBL (Red, Green, Blue, Lime) LED engine with higher CRI / TM-30 / TLCI offers better rendering of people and costumes for demanding broadcast and theater applications. With a 4 to 27 degree zoom, MAC One can deliver a tight, fast, and well-defined beam, but also a soft-edged wash with its championed Fresnel lens, often loved by lighting designers.
Beautiful to Look At, Beautiful to Light Up
MAC One offers precision control for the most demanding applications in broadcast and theatre and the ability to remove unwanted flicker in broadcast applications. It also offers beautiful eye-candy, empowering it to decorate the stage when the fixture is not being used as a beam or wash.
Extremely Compact Size
Weighing just 4.4 kg / 9.7 lbs, MAC One is easy to deploy in large quantities and reduces shipping costs and environmental impact. It’s also perfect for venues with load-bearing limits or space-constraints.
With the optional fourbar accessory, MAC One fixtures can be transported, rigged, unrigged, and cabled in blocks of four, saving time when deploying several fixtures. An optional grid mount adapter enables the fixtures to be rigged in (self-supported) lines and matrices for creation of a “wall of light” without needing a custom rigging structure. Lines and matrices can contain a mix of MAC One and VDO Atomic Bold and Dot fixtures.
Connection is Key
Control the fixtures with a mix of Video and DMX using DMX, Art-Net, sACN and P3 connections. With P3 Control you can easily reduce the needed DMX channels / console parameters and make the most of the easy setup, mapping and addressing via the Martin P3 System Controller. Video can be mapped onto Beam, Aura or both.
