MAC Ultra Wash


SRP from £13,365.00 + VAT

The MAC Ultra Wash is a colossal return to everything that an incredible wash light should be. Pure and simple in concept, it’s a bold, no-nonsense workhorse and the brightest wash we've ever developed. Via its 1150 W, 6000 K proprietary LED light engine, the MAC Ultra Wash delivers a jaw-dropping 63,500 lumens from a 220 mm front lens and features an incredibly fast 1:10 zoom range.

At a Glance

The MAC Ultra's 50,000+ hour light engine is the latest in a long line of Martin feats of innovation. No matter what the application, you can reliably count on consistent quality of light and output -show after show for many years to come. TheMAC Ultra Wash also includes a powerful feature set, including uniform colour mixing, variable CTO, additional color and spectral correction filters, motorized frost for a softer field, high resolution dimming and strobing.

Ideal for touring, concerts, TV shows and performing arts, the MAC Ultra Wash supports the broader production market all the way up to the most demanding stage lighting events. Martin set the standard for managing the ratio of weight, size, and power and the MAC Ultra Wash surges ahead with even superior performance.

When it comes to delivering drop-dead wash light performance and workhorse reliability, nothing comes remotely close.MAC Ultra Wash exceeds the boundaries of design as an undeniable, class-leading fixture that sets a steep bar on wash light innovation


The MAC Ultra Wash pushes a phenomenal 63,500 lumens of output from its mighty 220 mm front lens. With our tailor-made light engine and optics designed as one unified system, MAC Ultra Wash excels on keeping output across the zoom range, resulting in an ever-bright wash field. With high luminous flux and intensity at narrow zoom angles, MAC Ultra Wash delivers the punch needed for the longest throws and highest trims -no stage or venue is too big for MAC Ultra Wash.

Our proprietary 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 6000K color 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 lifetime. 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 sophisticated MAC Ultra cooling system always 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.

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.
