City Theatrical Launches Three Beam Control Accessories for Martin MAC Aura PXL

City Theatrical’s new MAC Aura PXL Concentric Rings (P/N 2788), Top Hat (P/N 2786), and Hexcel Louver (P/N 2787)

City Theatrical now offers three standard beam control accessories designed to fit the Martin MAC Aura PXL lighting fixture: the MAC Aura PXL Top Hat, Hexcel Louver, and Concentric Ring. These three beam control accessories were developed based on City Theatrical’s understanding of the unique accessory needs of lighting professionals, and the high demand for this moving light fixture in the market. Each new MAC Aura PXL beam control product offers control of stray beams and light spill.

City Theatrical’s engineers and craftspeople design and create beam shaping lighting accessories, like the new MAC Aura PXL Top Hat (P/N 2786). There are currently dozens of unique variations of City Theatrical Standard Top Hats available. Top Hats help prevent light spill from modern LED fixtures, which can extend nearly 180 degrees from the light source. Top Hats provide careful beam control for the MAC Aura PXL and many other moving light fixtures for entertainment projects.

City Theatrical Concentric Rings deliver 45° cutoff of light spill but from a shorter depth. When space is at a premium, such as on moving lights hung in a tight rig, using a MAC Aura PXL Concentric Ring (P/N 2788) would be a top choice for designers seeking beam control. Concentric Rings are also used to create a "Svoboda-like" style on lighting fixtures that are in view of the audience.

Serving a similar beam control function to a City Theatrical Top Hat or Concentric Ring at a minimal depth, MAC Aura PXL Hexcel Louvers (P/N 2787) provide beam control and 45° cutoff of light spill. City Theatrical Hexcel Louvers use cells that are 3/8” x 3/8” x 3/8” deep, and provide a sleek appearance when mounted on the lighting fixture.

City Theatrical currently offers 24 styles of beam control accessories for 10 different Martin moving lights through their dealer network, and can also create custom manufactured beam control accessories for end users of Martin light fixtures.
