Martin announced the P3-175 and P3-275 System Controllers, alongside the P3 Software Update 6.0.0; these P3 tools are tuned for Martin fixtures, standing as an all-in-one creative lighting control solution that optimises fixture performance and simplifies workflows. 

P3 System Controllers offer tight, accurate and full control over P3-enabled fixtures from one central location. Automated mapping, scaling, configuring, and addressing of fixtures saves time and eliminates the need to address fixtures locally.

The new Martin P3-175 and P3-275 System Controllers support video input up to 4K over HDMI and NDI with significantly increased output-capacity. Real-time previews illustrate how DMX controls and video will be rendered on the fixtures even when using a mix of control methods.

Integrating with third-party software via the MVR standard, P3 System Controllers are able to import and export industry-standard files eliminating duplicate actions, enabling designs to be shared between lighting consoles, CAD programs, visualisers and the Martin P3 ecosystem.

Undergoing major upgrades, the new P3 Software Update 6.0.0 presents are responsive, with better support for darkened front of house, and other performance-monitoring environments. P3 System Controller Software 6.0.0 enables real-time feedback and remote system monitoring empowering system integrators to diagnose problems before they occur.

Wouter Verlinden, Product Manager Creative LED, Lighting and Control, stated: “We are truly excited to elevate Martin P3 system control with a next-generation update that takes video-mapping of creative LED fixtures to a whole other level. We were looking for ways to save designers valuable time. Custom content creation simplified with the ability to export a mask of mapped fixtures and the ability to import and export MVR files was just the beginning. We can’t wait for everyone to experience the new P3 software enhancements and our newest P3 System Controllers.”
