Meet the VDO Atomic Family: Big Brother & little brother

Two Sizes, Endless Creative Possibilities

There really are endless possibilities when it comes to the current VDO Atomic range. The fact we have two fantastic building block products mean that they work brilliantly together or apart. They share common features such as style, connections and control footprints, but then differ when it comes to size and output. This means you can enjoy creating different physical configurations with the products, mixing big and small, cold, warm and coloured beams over a myriad of different rigging options to ensure that no two shows look the same.

From a curvy wall of video mappable light to mic and floor mounted tungsten like blinders or even generic like wash lights with barn doors - the VDO Atomic range delivers fresh and classic looks inside and out. A truly versatile pair that, like all siblings, have unique qualities but also make a formidable team!

Martin VDO Atomic DOT – Meet the little brother

The Martin VDO Atomic Dot (offered in both WRM and CLD) are hybrid lighting and video fixtures combined into a small blinder, compact strobe, video-pixel and small spotlight. By combining a video-controlled Aura backlight and a bright blinder/strobe dot in one fixture, lighting designers are empowered with greater creative potential to make a bigger impact with audiences than ever before. The fixtures’ compact design also gives designers the ability to place VDO Atomic Dots just about anywhere and deploy them in larger quantities. Integrated support for P3, DMX, Art-Net and sCAN eliminates the need for additional interface boxes and onboard P3 eases pixel mapping and using the product as a video controlled blinder or strobe.

Martin VDO Atomic Bold – Meet the BIG brother

The Martin VDO Atomic Bold is an incredibly versatile creative LED hybrid fixture and the newest addition to the VDO Atomic family. It includes a wide range of functionality to support a myriad of applications as an audience blinder, strobe light, creative LED pixelmapping surface, eye-candy effect light and stage wash – all in a single, compact fixture.

Including many of the benefits that made its sibling, the VDO Atomic Dot a popular hybrid fixture, the VDO Atomic Bold retains the same interlocking mechanics, same cabling and a similar look but is a larger fixture with higher, full colour lumen output to offer lighting designers even more creative freedom.
