Harman’s Martin Introduces P3 System Controller Software Version 3.1.0

AARHUS, Denmark — HARMAN’s Martin Professional today introduced the latest software update for its P3 System Controller family of LED video processors. Version 3.1.0 includes an improved preset system, placement tools for creative projects, and a host of additional new features for improved functionality and ease-of-use.

“Since its introduction in 2008, Martin’s P3 System Controller has become the industry standard for integrating video and lighting,” commented Wouter Verlinden, Product Manager – LED Video, Martin Professional. “Setting up LED video systems can be a lengthy process. However, the P3’s real time control capabilities paired with the new Version 3.1.0 software allows lighting designers to more easily integrate screen processing as part of the creative process and set up an entire system with a few mouse clicks. ”

The new software’s updated preset system allows fixture/fixture-group positions and rotations to be stored for quick recall of different layouts within the same show, making it ideal for events with moving scenery as well as large-scale festivals.

Also featured in the update are upgrades to wizards and placement tools for even faster handling of creative products, such as Martin’s VC-Dots and VC-Strips. The new placement tools allow for flexible fixtures, such as VC-Dots, to be set in free placement or "snap-to-grid" placement for easier system layout.

Other improvements include full copy/paste support for handling big setups, an updated fixture library sorted by product family for a better overview, and automation integration now supports Tait Navigator, Kinesys K2, and Kinesys Vector.

Software Version 3.1.0 is available for all Martin P3-100, P3-200 and P3-PC System Controllers.
