The Martin MAC Encore rangeintegrates cutting-edge LED technology with a proprietary and innovative light engine that has been carefully engineered to generate pristine, full spectrum light with ultra-high colour rendition. This is all housed in a cleverly cooled and packed optical design.

MAC Encore Wash WRM is an LED-based, replacement for the much-loved, discontinued MAC TW1, offering unparalleled 3000 K warm tungsten emulation that truly challenges the output quality of a real incandescent light source, and doubles as a modern replacement for generic fixtures like tungsten based Fresnel fixtures.

MAC Encore™ Wash CLD is an LED-based alternative to the MAC Viper Wash DX. The feature-packed soft edge moving head offers unparalleled 6000 K crisp, neutral daylight, and doubles as a modern replacement for generic fixtures like HMI-based Fresnel fixtures.

The MAC Encore Performance weaves together coveted features and dynamic effects including vibrant CMY colour mixing, ultra-slow gobo rotation, Animotion™ FX system for 3D beam animations, smooth colour temperature correction, dimming to full blackout, and variable frost. And it performs them all with extreme speed and accuracy of movement, precise framing shutters, all in a record-breaking, low noise engine.  Like the Encore wash it is available in 3000K WRM and 6000K CLD variants.

A replacement for the highly successful MH 3 Beam, the new Martin RUSH MH 11 Beam uses the same 250W Platinum 11R lamp found in the Martin RUSH MH 7 Hybrid but with refined beam optics that provide excellent intensity and sharp mid-air effects in a beam-only fixture. When this lamp is combined with the class-leading optics of the MH 11, the fixture achieves sharp, high-output beam effects with a super-tight 2.6 degree beam angle.

The fixture can produce a range of complex and precise mid-air looks using eight rotating and indexing gobos and an eight-facet prism. It has thirteen selectable colours, frost and motorised focus, and has a ruggedised industrial design that makes it perfect for high-end touring and rental applications.

The Martin RUSH MH 10 Beam is a compact 60W RGBW LED moving head fixture that offers tight beam effects using a collimator lens design, creating a striking, high-intensity look on stage. The LEDs on the MH 10 Beam blend perfectly with Martin MAC Aura, RUSH MH 6, and RUSH Par 2 fixtures, providing excellent colour mixing capabilities.

In addition, an independent built-in LED ring with 24 individually-controllable LEDs surrounds the central beam lens, offering visual effect possibilities never before available at this price point.

The Soundcraft Vi1000 is the most compact member of the Vi-000 family yet it retains all the mixing and processing power of its two larger siblings, the Vi2000 and 3000.

96 input channels with 24 mono/stereo mix busses, plus LRC master busses, and support for Dante audio networking—all in a compact form factor makes it ideal for smaller touring projects, rental companies, corporate AV applications, as well as music venue, theatre, and HOW installations in search of a versatile digital mixer.

As is standard with all Vi000-series consoles, a built-in 64x64ch DanteTM/MADI interface provides direct recording/playback connection via Ethernet to any Windows or Mac-based recording software, or allows the Vi1000 to integrate into an existing Dante network. The optical MADI interface allows an alternate record feed to MADI-equipped storage devices or connection of the Soundcraft Realtime Rack Plug-in engine, adding the power of Universal Audio UADTM-powered plug-ins to the console's expansive sonic palette.

The Vi1000’s built-in monitoring support for AKG, Shure and Sennheiser wireless microphone systems makes it easy to check battery power, RF levels and frequencies, plus audio level and clipping status of the attached wireless microphones—right on the channel strip that controls each mic.
