MAC Aura XIP

WASH LIGHT WITH SMART OUTDOOR PROTECTION AND AURA FILAMENTS

MAC Aura XIP

MAC Aura XIP is a premium moving head wash light with a radical aura filament effect and full pixel control with video mapping capabilities onto the beam, aura, or both. It’s Martin's latest addition to the MAC Aura family of workhorse wash lights and the first fixture in its class to be rated for outdoor use, with close to zero compromises in weight, size, and aesthetics due to Martin’s smart outdoor-capable design. It raises the bar for optical quality, featuring an even wash field with soft edge, minimal stray light, and high intensity mid-air beams with improved light engine control.

Perfect for a wide range of concert and touring productions, MAC Aura XIP is equipped with a smart, outdoor design for festivals and events, while still being quiet and lightweight enough for theater, television, corporate events and more.

While MAC Aura XIP offers lighting designers a range of possibilities with its aura filament effect, narrower beam and better wash quality with improved light engine control; rental customers will appreciate a workhorse that is lighter and more versatile with optical improvements and a sealed design, allowing the product to be used virtually anywhere and require less maintenance.

  • OUTDOOR CAPABLE WITH ZERO COMPROMISE TO INDOOR USE

    With innovative smart outdoor-proofing technology, MAC Aura XIP is fully waterproof for weather conditions such as rain, snow, sand or ice with close to zero impact on the fixture’s size, weight, output, noise and aesthetics. This makes it a truly versatile workhorse that can avoid “indoor-only” and “outdoor-only” labels.

  • CLEAN AND EVEN WASH FIELD

    The MAC Aura XIP has the cleanest wash field in its class, emitting rich saturated colors with RGBW color mixing to deliver very bright and vibrant colors, soft pastels, and white tones. It has an extremely even wash field with zero hotspot and a soft edge to create a better stage wash.

  • RADICAL NEW AURA FILAMENT EFFECT

    12x RGBW filaments deliver a brighter aura backlight effect, with the possibility to show iconic aura filaments that can also be individually controlled.

  • BEAM PIXEL CONTROL

    Featuring pixel control with video mapping capabilities onto beam, aura, or both with easy setup mapping and addressing via a Martin P3 controller, the MAC Aura XIP promises new and exciting eye candy looks that create intriguing stage effects.

  • WORKHORSE VERSATILITY

    The MAC Aura XIP is lightweight, compact and silent enough for the most demanding indoor applications such as theater, television and corporate events. It also integrates a robust and waterproof design for festivals, concerts and other outdoor events.

  • OPTICALLY ROBUST

    The MAC Aura XIP features remarkable optical upgrades such as a narrower zoom creating a higher intensity beam and less stray light. It has an optional high CRI / TM-30 / TLCI mode, LED frequency control for flicker-free projection in broadcasting and green/magenta shift control over white point improving skin tone optical performance.

  • EASIER HANDLING

    The MAC Aura XIP is built to be a workhorse with handles on the head and base and Omega bracket attachments for easier handling and rigging. Its sealed design requires less maintenance (as less dust and pollution can enter the product) than IP20 alternatives.
