MAC Viper Profile™ Wins 2012 PLASA Award for Innovation

mac-viper-profile_plasa-award-2012.jpgMartin Professional’s new MAC Viper Profile won an Award for Innovation Monday evening, September 10th, at the PLASA trade show in London, the second year in a row that Martin has walked away with a PLASA innovation accolade.

Martin Product Manager Peter Skytte was on hand to accept the award, which the judges called “a new benchmark for automated lighting spots."

Judged 'live' by an independent panel of expert judges on the first day of the show, the PLASA Awards for Innovation recognize products that advance the industry by demonstrating a new style of thinking or improving technical practice or safety.

The MAC Viper Profile has made waves since its introduction at the Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt last March. Following an overwhelmingly positive response from lighting designers and rental companies, it became the biggest pre-sale success ever in Martin’s history. The fixture has been shipping since July.

The MAC Viper Profile is the first fixture in Martin’s 1000-watt MAC Viper family of luminaires. Convincingly brighter than 1200-watt fixtures, the MAC Viper Profile kicks out 26,000 lumens, making it over 30% brighter than veteran 1200-watt products and 55% more efficient. It also outperforms them in terms of speed and compactness.
