Martin have just released a new lighting console that looks very interesting indeed. I have copied and pasted their press release below. I am sure you like me cannot wait to get our hands on what looks like an amazing lighting desk. I have also included video of the desk.
New Martin Professional M6 More Than Just a Lighting Console
Martin Professional’s new M6 is a state-of-the-art lighting console that functions as a highly advanced visual control surface. Designed to control everything from conventional and moving lights to the most advanced media server, the M6 has been designed for today’s demanding multimedia shows and tomorrow’s challenges.
Incorporating the latest available technologies with an industrial multi-core processor, solid-state drives and custom-designed high-brightness touch screens, the M6 is capable of delivering up to 64 DMX universes directly from the console’s network ports without using costly external processors.
With advanced features like a LiveBlender™ T-Bar, FastDial™ rotary encoders, Paired Playback buttons and BriteTouch™ display, the M6 is Martin’s most advanced console design ever. It offers a total of 44 playbacks, including dual Main Go sections, 10 motorized faders and 12 additional faders, as well as a total of 17 encoders for parameter access.
Based on the mature and well-proven M-Series software platform, the M6 provides users the ultimate control surface for fast programming and extensive playback control all from one console.
