Martin Professional Introduces MAC Viper XIP Outdoor Moving Head

The Martin MAC Viper XIP features 5° narrow, high-definition, and high-contrast beam, 5,800K colour temperature, and a white point precisely on the black body curve

HARMAN Professional Solutions, one of the global leaders in audio, lighting, video and control systems, announced Martin MAC Viper XIP, the next-generation Viper-class fixture that integrates iconic Viper performance, Martin's patent-pending XIP weatherproofing technology, and the most robust feature set Martin has ever developed.

Integrating powerful lumen output, XIP water and dust ingress protection, and whisper-silent noise levels, MAC Viper XIP is not only perfect for temporary, year-round outdoor needs but equally ideal for theater, broadcast, and other noise-sensitive applications. Featuring Martin's tailor-made light engine, the fixture delivers 28,000 lumens consistent output, outperforming much larger products on the market.

Unleashing a 5° narrow, high-definition, and high-contrast beam, MAC Viper XIP ensures unprecedented lumen maintenance over the zoom range. Its superior 5,800K colour temperature naturally enhances illuminated objects and ensures a white point precisely on the black body curve.

Precision motor control results in unmatched pan & tilt speeds and nimble response times - key for followspot systems and optimal performance. MAC Viper XIP's colour mixing, zoom speeds, and ratio between high-quality output, low-noise operation, and low-weight and size make it a truly versatile workhorse. It also features high-resolution, low-level dimming and gobo light recycling, enabling 25% additional output when inserting gobos for increased performance and efficiency.

Adding to its feature-rich offering, MAC Viper XIP leverages innovative onboard NFC technology to empower quick and streamlined setup via the forthcoming, dedicated Martin app. It also offers simplified connectivity among the most popular control protocols, including DMX, Wireless DMX via plug in module, Art-Net, sACN and Martin P3 Control (with fail-safe bypass).

The newly designed optical system significantly enhances the customer experience with a high-resolution projection system that offers unmatched gobo projection sharpness. Uniquely high-contrast levels, paired with brilliant and crisp lens designs ensure incomparable, razor-sharp mid-air effects. From concert stages to TV studios and EDM festivals to opera houses, the world''s top designers, specifiers, and rental companies can invest in the confidence and return on investment that only the MAC Viper lineup has proven possible.

"We are proud to unveil this true leap forward for not just moving head lights but the pro lighting industry," said Henrik Kristensen, Product Manager of Stage Lighting, Martin Professional. "We've taken the very best features of our long-running Viper HID lineup and elevated them to next-level LED performance and efficiency levels. Then we are adding our hugely popular XIP weatherproofing technology for indoor/outdoor/anywhere usability. Our MAC Aura XIP, that debuted XIP technology, continues to be one of our most specified fixtures for some of the world's most demanding applications. In previewing the new MAC Viper XIP, interest has been staggering and we believe this fixture has significant potential to become one of the most exceptional and versatile moving heads ever built."
