MAC Aura

The MAC Aura is an award-winning wash light that lighting designers have turned to the world over due to its versatility as a powerful beam and wash luminaire of the highest caliber. The result of out-of-the-box creative thinking, it is the first LED moving head wash light to combine multicolor beam LEDs with a backlight LED array that takes the synthetic look out of LED wash lights.

  • Single-lens wash with fully premixed color
  • Broad color palette, RGBW color mixing
  • Eye-candy Aura Effects™


With or without eye candy
Use the fixture as a powerful single-lens wash or employ a separate set of individually controllable multicolor LEDs for radical to subtle eye-candy looks. Mix, match, and create new effects that take the unnatural LED look out of LED lighting. For the ultimate in easy-to-produce visuals, use the Aura’s built-in FX engine to create extraordinary effects fast.

Zoom with boom!
The MAC Aura houses an unrivalled 11-58o zoom for fantastic beam effects with great definition. The zoom is capable of angling wide or extremely tight for high intensity beam looks. A uniform field of light and excellent efficiency is maintained throughout the zoom range.

The MAC Aura delivers almost 4000 lumens of output in an ultra-compact 5.6 kg (12.3 lb) package for a performance to size ratio that you don’t find in comparable fixtures. And the Aura moves at a speed and precision that was once only associated with moving mirrors.


Wicked wash
The MAC Aura is a versatile wash light of the highest caliber. It features superior color mixing with a broad range of shades from two independent color systems. Color shades mix completely uniform from vibrant saturated colors across beautiful pastels to authentic warm and cool shades of white.

Oh, so quiet
Thanks to an excellent cooling system and high optical efficiency, the MAC Aura is extremely quiet for noise sensitive environments like TV and theatre.

1A is enough
Super low power consumption (1 amp) allows multiple fixtures to be daisy-chained on the same power line for an easier, faster and less expensive installation.
