Robert Juliart show prototype LED profile

At the recent ProLight & Sound event in Frankfurt Robert Juliart showed of their prototype LED Profile, the AledIN. This LED profile is the first product of its type to have a  significant light output and  framing and projection ability from an extremely low-powered LED light source. This has caused quite a stir in the industry. We look forward to more development and the eventual release of this fixture. The fitting consumes about 85w, so you will be able to run several off a single powerpoint. This is going to be a real bonus for venues with limited power. The Robert Juliat optics will give you crystal clear gobo projection (even for plastic gobos). It will be available with a choice of two colour temperatures (3200K or 5800K) which it maintains during fading. I look forward to seeing this device in operation.

Martin MAC III Performance™ Offers Unlimited Framing and Much More

Martin MAC III

The MAC III Performance™ is a flexible, high-output profile moving head with a new interleaved framing system with full crossover of each blade and industry first continuous rotation for new and unlimited projection, framing and effects possibilities.

Capable of creating a greater variety of shapes than competitive products, it is available as a stand-alone fixture or as a cost effective upgrade that installs in minutes on any existing MAC III Profile™.

The MAC III Performance’s unique continuous rotation framing system is an industry first. Four individually controllable shutter blades can be micro-adjusted in an infinite variety of positions for a greater refinement of beam shape, and continuous rotation allows the image to revolve successively at any angle.

Each shutter blade can move across the entire beam to a complete blackout so not only are more shapes possible but any shape can be positioned in any part of the field of light. This flexibility in shapes comes via an interleaved system which also ensures optimal focus of all blades.

The flexible shutter system allows gobos to be seamlessly crossfaded in and all four blade edges stay in uniform focus for an overall sharper projection.

Primarily used to frame set elements and performers, continuous rotation framing allows the MAC III Performance to also be used as a unique and capable effect light.

Animation and framing in one fixture

The MAC III Performance includes Martin’s pioneer gobo animation system which allows for the projection of effect simulations such as rising flames, drifting clouds, driving rain, turbulent water and much more.

No competitor offers a framing and animation system in one moving head. The result is all new projection and mid-air effects possibilities for greater artistic freedom.

Feature packed

In addition to the module features, the 1500 watt MAC III Performance houses all of the advanced features you’ve come to expect from the MAC III Profile: efficient optics, CMY color mixing, color wheel, variable CTO, dimming, zoom, modular design, electronic ballast and more. It is also the quietest fixture in its class.

The MAC III Performance is fully RDM compatible and in order to make the fixture even more user-friendly, on-board software creates a service and event log for download.

Profile to Performance…and back again

The MAC III Performance module easily converts any MAC III Profile into a MAC III Performance in less than five minutes, bringing added flexibility and value to existing MAC III Profile fixtures for very little cost.

Easily convertible from profile to performance and back again, users can enjoy all the benefits of both without having to invest in two separate luminaires.

The easy-to-swap module consists of a framing system with continuous rotation, shutter, iris, rotating gobo wheel (5 gobos), animation wheel and color wheel. Additionally, a frost filter is supplied to replace the prism. The module can be easily uninstalled and the fixture returned to a standard MAC III Profile at any time.
