MAC Viper Performance

SRP from £10,290.00 + VAT

The MAC Viper Performance is a full-feature framing fixture that delivers an output and performance never before seen in a fixture this size or one using so little power.

Unlike other fixtures in this class, the MAC Viper Performance does not forgo an iris or animation wheel – they are both included along with a framing system and rotating gobos.

The framing system consists of four shutter blades that can all individually adjust +/- 30° while the entire system can rotate +/- 55°. The exacting system can repeat each cue with great precision. When fully focused, gobos can be nicely framed with a soft edge. The MAC Viper Performance has adopted the compact form, impressive speed, superior light quality and beautiful colours that the MAC Viper Profile is renowned for and uses the same 1000-watt lamp.

  • 26000 Lumens – Excellent light quality with a very flat and uniform field and 6000K colour temperature
  • 1:4 zoom – Fast zoom with auto-linked focus
  • Four shutter blades individually adjust +/- 30° while the entire system rotates +/- 55°. Repeats cues with great precision
  • 26000 Lumens – Excellent light quality with a very flat and uniform field and 6000K colour temperature
  • 1:4 zoom – Fast zoom with auto-linked focus
  • Four shutter blades individually adjust +/- 30° while the entire system rotates +/- 55°. Repeats cues with great precision
  • Large aperture front lens – The 140 mm front lens exceeds the size of any other fixture in this segment for just the right fat beam look
  • 5 rotating gobos – All glass gobos with only a slight focal separation to the framing system
  • Animation wheel with continuous bi-directional rotation
  • CMY – Vibrant colour mixing with a superior palette of colours including true reds, rich ambers, primary green and deep blues
