MAC Axiom Hybrid

True all-in-one hybrid fixture

Larger Images

The MAC Axiom™ Hybrid is a true all-in-one product, combining beam and spot into one compact unit that also offers diffused wash functionality. The high-precision optical system offers exceptional contrast, both in mid-air and projection as well as a surprisingly flat field, usually not seen with this short-arc lamp technology. The implementation of the MAC Viper CMY color palette gives designers the advantage of unlimited choice from subtle pastel shades to deep and saturated colors. All this comes in a small footprint and lightweight product which delivers superior performance in the best feature vs. size and weight ratio available in the market.

  • All-in-one product – packed with effects 
  • Tight and narrow beam - amazing intensity
  • MAC Viper color palette - superior CMY color mixing
