NORTHRIDGE, Calif.—Today, HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, substantially raised the bar for extremely bright and compact lights with the debut of Martin by HARMAN’s revolutionary 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 astoundingly low noise levels, the MAC Ultra family is perfect for concert and touring productions and equally applicable for noise-sensitive broadcast and theater applications.
Powered by Martin’s brightest engine ever, the MAC Ultra Series features an all new 1150 W, 6000 K proprietary LED light engine. This gives MAC Ultra Wash the power to project a jaw-dropping 63,500 lumens and MAC Ultra Performance an astounding 46,500 lumens of output. And while cutting-edge 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 colors and more natural skin-tones, redefining seeing is believing.
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 color mixing, variable CTO, additional color and spectral correction filters, motorized frost for a softer field, high resolution dimming and strobing – all built into a sturdy and legendary MAC design. And, the brand new Martin Extended Framing System debuts for the first time in the MAC Ultra Performance, offering more flexibility, easier programming, quicker response time and precision shutter angling that surges the fixture into a new class of creative potential.
“We are so proud to be able to introduce MAC Ultra to our incredibly loyal client base of designers and customers,” said 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-scrutinize 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.”
