Martin’s Maxxyz lighting controller is now available in a PC-based version. This new computer based version of the Maxxyz console is an offline and online editing tool that gives full Maxxyz functionality from a PC or laptop.

Maxxyz PC can be used for offline programming and can be linked to Martin’s Universal DMX interface device or Ether2DMX Router for direct control of fixtures. Featuring dongle-protected software without the need for expensive hardware, it is suited for a large variety of shows.

Maxxyz PC is the most scalable PC-based lighting software in the industry, according to Martin. The software is free of charge, but to output DMX, a USB license dongle and a DMX interface device are needed. The USB interface device outputs two universes or uses Artnet via the PC's Ethernet port.

The software can be installed on a PC or laptop running Windows XP OS. It can also be used in conjunction with the Maxxyz Wing or as a backup to the Maxxyz console.
