Martin MAC III AirFX™ - powerful mid-air effects and wash luminaire

martin-mac-iii-airfx_main-low.jpgAfter a successful ramp up and pre-order campaign, Martin Professional’s newest MAC III family luminaire is now shipping. The 1500-watt MAC III AirFX is an extremely bright and highly versatile lighting fixture, a new concept that combines hard-edge, mid-air effects and a wash field in one luminaire.

Capable of projecting a dense, hard-edge beam with stunning mid-air aerial effects, the MAC III AirFX’s unique optical system allows it to adjust from a tight beam to a radiant wash instantly for greater design flexibility.

Mid-air excellence

Super bright at nearly 60,000 lumens, the MAC III AirFX is powerful enough to cut through light from even the most powerful LED screens. An aerial effects wheel houses a set of 4 exceptional gobo designs, interchangeable and indexable effects that can be continuously rotated. A variable iris is also included when a tight beam is required.

1:5 linear zoom and focus

The MAC III AirFX houses a 1:5 zoom with auto-linked focus that is fast with gobo effects that hold focus through the entire zoom range and at varying throws. Beam gobos can adjust along the entire zoom and unlike other fixtures, light output is constant throughout the entire zoom range with no visible beam jump from tight to wide.

Fat beam

The MAC III AirFX uses a special 9” precision PC lens for an eye-catching and distinctive fat beam look with less spill than micro-Fresnels. The beam looks brilliant in mid-air and gives a powerful visual punch to any show. An optional Fresnel lens is also available.

CMY plus color wheel and CTO

An enhanced CMY color mixing system gives a wide range of vibrant colors across the spectrum plus a broad range of uniform pastels. A fixed color wheel houses 7 interchangeable slots for an even broader color range. Users can create color bumps and splits and exceptional color blending with split colors. The color gamut is complemented with a variable CTO.

Dimmer / Shutter

The MAC III AirFX houses a smooth dimming system with 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 and punchy strobe effects as well as a total front lens blackout.
