Following the successful launch of the M1™ lighting controller, Martin Professional introduces two new PC-based controllers to its lineup.

The M-PC Pro™, which replaces the original Maxxyz PC™, includes all the features of the Maxxyz PC plus all new features from the new M1 console. In addition, M-PC Pro has been upgraded from 32 to 64 DMX universes over standard Artnet or by using the Martin USB DUO DMX™, making it some of the most powerful PC-based lighting software ever made.

For budget-oriented applications, the M-PC Basic™ offers the same feature set as the M-PC Pro but can generate a maximum of 8 DMX universes.

Both M-PC Pro and M-PC Basic come with the MSD5™ (Martin ShowDesigner) MC Edition 3D Visualizer and one Martin USB DUO DMX.

In the same round of new releases, Martin also announces the addition of an M-PC 8 universes license to the Martin Ether2DMX8™ Artnet to DMX converter. Once connected to a PC, the Ether2DMX8 will activate the M-PC Basic.
