MAC Ultra

Image title

Born from our largest engineering initiative in a decade, the new Martin MAC Ultra Performance and MAC Ultra Wash raise the bar for extremely bright and compact lights.

The MAC Ultra Performance features our all new 1150 W, 6000 K proprietary LED light engine and pushes 46,500 lumens. The 50,000+ hour light engine provides high resolution dimming, strobing and Martin’s Animotion™ effect. A 1:7 zoom-range and precision focus-control is provided from the refined optical system. Features include uniform color mixing, variable CTO, additional colour and spectral correction filters, Martin’s Extended Framing system, two layers of rotating gobos, animation wheel, iris, frost and prism effects, and pan and tilt. It is perfect for concert and touring productions but equally applicable for noise-sensitive broadcast and theatre stage lighting applications.

The MAC Ultra Wash is the brightest wash we’ve ever developed. Via its 1150 W, 6000 K LED light engine, it delivers a jaw-dropping 63,500 lumens from a 220 mm front lens and features fast 1:10 zoom range. With its 50,000+ hour light engine, you can count on consistent quality of light and output for years to come. It also includes uniform colour mixing, variable CTO, additional colour and spectral correction filters, motorized frost for a softer field, high resolution dimming and strobing. It is ideal for touring, concerts, TV shows and performing arts.

Our proprietary 1150W LED light engine is the foundation for MAC Ultra visual quality, built around the very latest technology to meet ever-stretched performance requirements. Our engine not only provides impressive metrics but most importantly is more pleasing to the human eye. With higher red content and 6000 K colour temperature for better daylight balance, it delivers richer, more vivid colors and more natural skin-tones.


MAC Ultra was designed to not only deliver best-in-class output and quality in its first hour of use, but throughout its product life. The minimum LED lifetime exceeds 50,000 hours and the engine delivers over 90 percent of its initial output after 20,000 hours of full output. In real-world applications, this equals rock-solid performance and stability. Our engineering team has achieved these results through a sophisticated cooling system and by never driving the 1680 W LED package at more than 70 percent of its maximum rating. This combination ensures visual excellence and peace of mind throughout the life of the product.


The MAC Ultra Performance truly raises the bar with a next-generation framing system. It offers more flexibility, easy programming, quick response time and enhanced shutter angling. Where existing systems have no tilting of the shutter blades at the very edge of the beam and only obtain their specified tilt range when the blades are fully inserted, the Martin Extended Framing System offers fully specified shutter tilting from the very outside of the beam all the way across to the opposite side. This results in limitless, full curtain functionality and the ability to throw more light onstage. And, the MAC Ultra Performance keeps the four framing blades in just two layers, offering more even focus across all four blades.


The sophisticated MAC Ultra cooling system ensures a precise operating temperature window and sets a new standard for low acoustic levels. It’s not only ideal for a range of concert and touring productions but is equally applicable for noise-sensitive broadcast and theater stage lighting applications.


The colour mixing system continues our mission to provide the best colour system in the market. As an experienced MAC user, you'll immediately feel at home with the MAC Ultra's colour palette yet discover new levels of brightness, uniformity, saturation and subtlety.

The system also offers a linear colour temperature control from the native 6000K and down to 2850K. The CTO follows a curve very close to the black body line thereby minimizing the green or magenta shift.


MAC Ultra features a unique and compact industrial design. Martin’s patented yoke handles provide better ergonomics and safer handling of the light. To benefit stage and set designers, all connectors and the UI are placed on the same side of the unit, leaving the opposite side free from visual distraction. Follow-spot handles are also permanently incorporated, and tool-free replacement of air-inlet filters is easier than ever to access.
