New line for DJs, musicians, and enthusiasts offers plug-and-play ease to enhance live performances and events
PROLIGHT + SOUND (Hall 4.0, Stand F41), FRANKFURT—HARMAN Professional today announces the Martin THRILL line of products designed to provide professional lighting and atmospheric effects to musicians, DJs, and enthusiasts who want to bring a new level of polish and excitement to their performances and events.
The THRILL range of products initially includes:
- Mini Profile: a compact LED moving head with super sharp optics, superior output, and a color wheel offering 8 colors plus white and gobo effects.
- Multi-FX LED: a 3-in-1 LED light fixture with laser, strobe, and rotating colored light effects.
- SlimPAR Mini LED and SlimPAR 64 LED: bright and powerful LED PAR cans, the most common style of fixture used for stage-, wash- and up-lighting.
- Vertical Fogger: a fog machine capable of producing 25-feet high plumes of fog that simulate “cyro” effects complimented with LED lights for stunning effects.
For 30 years, the Martin brand has been the leading choice of professional lighting designers, rental houses, and installers across the global architectural, commercial, and entertainment lighting markets. With the THRILL series, Martin is bringing its industry leading excellence in dynamic light and visual effects to new audiences by providing more affordable and easier-to-use models, while still retaining a die-hard dedication to quality and our customers.
All THRILL products work right out of the box with easy-to-use presets for customers who have minimal to no lighting experience. With THRILL, musicians, DJs and home enthusiasts can spend their time focused on entertaining, rather than setting up and controlling complex equipment.
The compact and portable design found throughout the THRILL line is perfect for performers who normally transport equipment in the trunk of their car or a minivan, such as small bands, DJs, singer-songwriters or wedding entertainers. They are also ideal for small venues working with limited stage footprints and rental companies who want to supply atmospheric lighting and fog solutions for smaller setups that do not have the budget for professional lighting operators. THRILL will also find a home with enthusiasts who want to add a dramatic touch to holiday gatherings or parties.
“With live performances being such a critical part of how performers make a living in today’s environment, musicians and DJs must provide more than just a musical experience, they need to deliver the whole visual entertainment package,” says Justin Cicerone, Solutions Manager – Retail, HARMAN Professional Solutions “With the THRILL series of lighting and atmospheric effects, we’re providing everything they need to easily take their performances to that next level. And we’re doing it with price points and form factors that can easily fit into anyone’s budget and stage set-up.”
The Martin THRILL line will be introduced through major music retailers beginning May 2017. For more information, please visit martin.com/thrill.
