The Martin P3 System Controllers offer an easy to use solution to map video onto Martin Creative LED and Lighting fixtures, including manipulation of the video such as scaling, rotating, mirroring and more. On top of sending video to these fixtures, the P3 System Controllers also merge in controls from any lighting console, allowing you to mix ‘n match video and lighting control of the fixtures, for the best of both worlds and more creative freedom.
The Martin P3 System Controllers stand out with their ease of use and creative features. All connected fixtures are addressed, patched and configured in few clicks, with no need to walk up to any fixture for old-school manual setup. The communication between the fixtures and P3 System Controller is fully bi-direction, so real-time feedback and error-reporting enables you to have a full overview of the entire setup, even in fixed installations where the P3 System Controller can be monitored via the Internet.
P3 brings creative LED and lighting fixtures together onto one visual canvas; allowing all to be treated as one and to prevent the need for dedicated control solutions for each of the different products.
The P3 ecosystem removes the need for manual addressing and external computers for setup, while featuring an ergonomic user interface. Mapping and scaling is automated to give you more time to be creative, even beyond the limitations of full HD..
P3 offers the freedom to use the most suited tool for each vision. Whether using video content, traditional DMX controls, Art-Net PixelMapping (up to 128 universes), or a mix of control methods, you can achieve uniquely creative looks for each application.
All P3-enabled products feature advanced color & brightness calibration & color-matching between fixture types. The entire system is fully synchronized, ensuring all elements work cohesively without visible latency.
P3 System Controllers give you full control over your system from one central location, eliminating the need to address fixtures locally. And, real-time preview shows you how DMX controls and video will be rendered on the fixtures.
The free P3-PC System Controller solution allows you to get started easily. It can be used as a basic mapping tool; addressing tool; Art-Net to P3 bridge; or as a full P3 control solution - mixing lighting controls and video content into fixtures.
