MAC Encore Wash CLD

Designed to produce rich color and premium white light in a wide variety of applications where light quality is critical, the MAC Encore™ Wash CLD is an LED-based alternative to the MAC Viper Wash DX. The feature-packed soft edge moving head offers unparalleled 6000 K crisp, neutral daylight, and doubles as a modern replacement for generic fixtures like HMI based Fresnel fixtures, with the additional benefit of color mixing and movement.

  • Unparalleled 6000 K cold white light quality
  • Super silent cooling and effects operation
  • Best-in-class size/weight/performance ratio



  • Pure white LED engine with 6000 K CCT.
  • No color temperature variation during zoom and dimming.
  • Flicker-free operation—LED driver frequency suitable for all camera applications.
  • Whisper-silent—Combines convection and forced air cooling with user-selectable output vs. sound level control.
  • Fully electronic dimmer/shutter control with various dimming curves and tungsten red-shift emulation.
  • Vibrant CMY color mixing with a superior palette of colors ranging from rich, saturated primary colors to light and smooth pastel shades.
  • Variable CTO—daylight to tungsten CCT control and expansion of the CMY palette that stays true to the black body curve.
  • Color wheel—6 interchangeable dichroic filters + open.
  • Fresnel lens: 1:4 zoom—precise, silent and fast zoom.
  • PC lens (optional): 1:5 zoom—precise, silent and fast zoom.
  • Internal barndoor system with two shutter blades and iris. Shutter blades can overlap for full blackout and the entire system rotates +/- 100°. Repeats cues with great precision.
  • Precise and tight iris with adjustable dynamic effects.
  • Animotion™ FX System—Internal dimming effect macros for stunning 3D mid-air and projection effects.
  • Super precise and silent pan/tilt movement and positioning due to 3-phase stepper motor technology and absolute position monitoring.
  • Compact size—L: 452 x W: 480 x H: 745 mm / L: 17.8 x W: 18.9 x H: 29.3 in.
  • Low weight—28.5 kg/62.9 lbs
  • Foam rubber (SIP) flight case insert for secure shipment.
