Martin MAC Aura™ Wins PLASA Award for Innovation

martin-plasa-award-2011_mac-aura-low.jpgMartin Professional's new MAC Aura LED moving head wash light walked away with an Award for Innovation at the recently concluded PLASA show in London.

With the words “eye candy… we've never seen it before," PLASA CEO Matthew Griffiths presented Martin Product Manager Peter Skytte with the Award, a recognition of the MAC Aura's ground-breaking optical system that allows for never-before-seen visual effects.

Held on Monday evening on the show floor, 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 Aura is the first compact LED moving head wash light with zoom that uses two independent color systems to produce new eye-candy effects plus functions as a highly capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed color.

Anticipation for the new LED wash light was great with the MAC Aura enthusiastically received from day one of the show. Momentum seemed to build as the show progressed with the accolade the icing on the cake. The fixture's combination of multicolor beam LEDs with a backlight LED lens array was also a hit with the many lighting designers that frequented the Martin stand throughout the show.
