Martin by HARMAN Introduces MAC Encore Performance—New Benchmark Fixture in Performance Lighting

Full-featured, whisper-silent LED moving head delivers light quality and consistent performance levels never seen before in an LED-based stage lighting unit. US tour dates announced.

AARHUS, DENMARK—HARMAN Professional Solutions announces the launch and availability of Martin MAC Encore™ Performance, a full-featured, LED moving head designed to produce premium white light in a wide variety of applications where critical lighting is required. MAC Encore Performance is available in two dedicated color temperature variants: WRM for unparalleled, 3000 K warm incandescent emulation and CLD for crisp, 6000 K neutral daylight.

MAC Encore Performance integrates cutting-edge LED technology with a proprietary and innovative light engine that has been carefully engineered to generate pristine, full spectrum light with ultra-high color rendition. This is all housed in a cleverly cooled and packed optical design.

The MAC Encore Performance weaves together coveted features and dynamic effects including vibrant CMY color mixing, ultra-slow gobo rotation, Animotion™ FX system for 3D beam animations, smooth color temperature correction, dimming to full blackout, and variable frost. And it performs them all with extreme speed and accuracy of movement, precise framing shutters, all in a record-breaking, low noise engine.

“With the introduction of two dedicated engines for pristine cold and warm white light found in MAC Encore Performance, we are not only solidifying our industry-leading position in LED technology, we are also offering a premium alternative to the one-size-fits-all solutions we see in the stage lighting market,” said Markus Klüsener, Product Manager—Stage Lighting, HARMAN Professional Solutions. 

Both the CLD and WRM variants of Martin MAC Encore Performance are now available. Contact your HARMAN representative for ordering information. A MAC Encore line extension is planned for early 2018 to include wash fixtures in CLD and WRM variants.
MAC Encore Performance will be supported by a world premiere demo tour starting late September. Attendees will experience hands-on demo sessions and in-depth tutorials, along with opportunities to meet the R&D team behind this innovative new product. US dates are listed below, with details of other regions to follow in a separate announcement.
