Martin Professional started shipping the MAC III Wash, the final luminaire in its 1500-watt MAC III family of moving heads. The full-feature, full-range wash luminaire excels at projecting an intense yet even field of light and has the added ability of shaping the beam through an internal barndoor system, a unique feature for a Fresnel light.
The MAC III Wash's internal barndoor system (shutters) enables designers to shape projection onto stages, performers, scenery, scrims or any set element with great precision. The luminaire also houses a 1:4 fully linear zoom that requires no lens changes and maintains near full efficiency throughout the entire zoom range with no visible beam jump when zooming from tight to wide and no drop in lumens output.
At over 50,000 lumens of power, output from the MAC III Wash matches that of conventional 2.5 kW daylight Fresnel fixtures. The MAC III Wash offers CMY colour mixing and colour temperature control, fully linear zoom, intensity control, power savings and more. The enhanced CMY colour mixing system gives a wide range of colour choices across the spectrum plus a broad range of uniform pastels. A fixed colour wheel houses seven interchangeable slots for a broad colour range. The colour gamut is complemented with a variable CTO (Colour Temperature Orange).
The MAC III Wash uses a large 9” Fresnel lens for a distinctive fat beam look. An optional clear PC lens is also available.
A smooth dimming system offers a choice of four dimming curves, fades that are completely uniform across the beam all the way to blackout. It also includes a separate shutter for fast strobe effects as well as a total front lens blackout.
Designed to be exceptionally quiet, the MAC III Wash is targeting the theatre and television markets, it also is recommended as high-performance wash light for touring, corporate and special events.
