MAC Aura PXL

Multi-Source Wash Light

MAC Aura PXL

The Martin MAC Aura PXL adds to the industry standard line of Martin wash lights with multi-lens and Aura backlight technology. Bigger and brighter than the MAC Aura, the PXL features significantly higher intensity and a tighter beam as well as a smaller face and less busy lens look compared to the MAC Quantum Wash. The MAC Aura PXLs bigger “bubbles” provide a more appealing look and beautiful wide wash fields.

It is also the first wash light in the market to feature individual pixel control for main beam pixels and Aura backlight with full control via DMX, Art-Net and sACN, as well as with Martin´s very own creative P3 video protocol.

The compact size and low weight, trusted Martin build quality and feature set, and simple and clever setup and control options make the MAC Aura PXL ideal for rental customers and lighting designers working in concert/touring, TV shows and corporate, as well as customers supporting the high-end nightclub market.

  • TRUE WASH LIGHT WORKHORSE

    From a tight, high intensity, narrow beam to beautiful wash fields, incorporated into a compact and lightweight package, the MAC Aura PXL suits every application.




  • BRIGHT, VIBRANT COLORS

    The RGBW system delivers very vibrant colors with a brightness only expected from much larger fixtures. The calibrated color system excels on subtle pastels and white tones, making any MAC Aura PXL in the rig match the color point when they must.


  • BUILT FOR PIXEL MAPPING

    With an all solid state color mixing system, instant color and intensity response, 19 individually controlled main beam pixels and 141 individually controlled Aura backlight pixels, the MAC Aura PXL is a great choice for pixel-mapping. The color palette can also be set to fully match the color space of any other P3-driven product in the rig, allowing the fixture to fit in seamlessly.

  • P3 INCORPORATED

    On top of DMX, Art-Net and sACN, the fixture can be controlled by Martin´s P3 protocol for setup and programming and allows a rig of fixtures to deliver cohesive content that blends together with video content on panels or creative LED products. You can even blend seamlessly between console and media input sources via the P3 mix channel.

  • SILENT OPERATION

    With its sophisticated, low noise cooling system, the MAC Aura PXL is a true stealth operator, even in the most critical and noise sensitive environments.




  • OPEN SOURCE

    The MAC Aura PXL accepts any industry standard input source. All of its features can be controlled via DMX-512, Art-Net, sACN and Martin´s very own P3 protocol. This allows for maximum versatility in any type of control environment.
