Martin Professional has announced a new product offering that easily converts two of its wash lights into a powerful beam fixture.
The Martin MAC 2000 Wash XB and MAC 2000 Wash can be transformed using the inexpensive conversion kit that installs in minutes, making it an ideal solution for large scale events where both beam and wash effects are required, such as stadium and arena shows, according to Martin.
The conversion kit is designed to optimise existing lighting gear, eliminating the need to invest in a completely new fixture.
The MAC 2000 Beam XB upgrade kit consists of a new front lens module with micro-Fresnel lens and a set of four beam effect gobos/apertures. The kit installs in less than five minutes and also works with the MAC 2000 Wash. Components can be easily uninstalled and the fixture returned to a standard Wash configuration at any time.
Once installed, the resulting 1500 W MAC 2000 Beam XB delivers a fat, tight and bright hard edge beam, perfect for big beam effects and long throws. Even at very narrow beam angles, output is outstanding with very high intensity, said the company. An electronic ballast offers hot-lamp re-strike and the advantage of flicker-free light.
Despite a surprisingly compact size, the MAC 2000 Beam XB includes all the proven features of the MAC 2000 Wash XB including full colour mixing, colour wheel, smooth dimming, strobe, variable CTC and zoom (wash effect).
