Martin expands its ERA product range
Martin has expanded its ERA product range with the ERA 600 and 800 Profiles, which join the ERA 300 Profile and three ERA Performance fixtures. Designed for applications needing an all-in-one moving head that is compact, lightweight and bright, the ERA 600 incorporates a 550W, 6,500K LED engine that produces 19,000 lumens and the ERA 800 comes with an 800W, 6,500K LED engine that produces 34,000 lumens. Both units are said to deliver sharp image projection with a flat field. Additional benefits include 1:8 zoom, electronic dimming/strobe, CMY/CTO, iris for beam adjustment and dual rotating gobo wheels, plus an additional static wheel, loaded with gobos from the Martin MAC range.
The lighting manufacturer has also announced that its P3 System Controller software version 5.2.0 is now available as a free update for the entire family of Martin P3 System Controllers. The update comes with a range of new features and improvements that benefit newer products such as the MAC Aura PXL and VDO Atomic Dot, as well as long-time favourites such as VDO Sceptron, VDO Fatron and Exterior PixLine. Users can toggle individual fixtures between video control and DMX control and create an Art-Net to P3 Bridge using the PixelMap Input functionality to visualise lighting designs in real time. Other benefits include receiving PixelMap input from a lighting desk for up to 128 universes, driving fixtures with a video feed from a media server or dynamically switching between the two.
