Martin by HARMAN Unveils MAC Axiom Hybrid Fixture at Prolight + Sound 2016

New compact, all-in-one hybrid fixture loaded with effects and intensity

PL+S 2016, FRANKFURT—Martin by HARMAN today announced the MAC Axiom Hybrid, a true all-in-one beam and spot fixture. The hybrid solution combines beam and spot functionality into a compact unit that also offers diffused wash and remarkable intensity. 

The unit’s seamless zoom and focus capability eliminates the need for dedicated beam or spot modes and allows for both instant as well as discrete transitions from a high-intensity collimated beam to a flat field spot.

The MAC Axiom Hybrid’s precise optical system offers high contrast, both in mid-air and projection, as well as a surprisingly flat field not often seen with this short-arc lamp technology. 

“The MAC Axiom Hybrid represents an evolution for Martin,” said Markus Klüsener, Product Manager, Stage Lighting, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “In addition to the fixture’s extensive set of effects, the implementation of the MAC Viper CMY color palette gives designers the advantage of unlimited selection, from subtle pastel shades to deep and saturated colors.”

Even with the array of features packed into the MAC Axiom Hybrid, the unit casts a surprisingly small footprint, resulting in a lightweight fixture that delivers superior performance.
