Christie Lites CEO Huntly Christie commented on the purchase, stating, “When making a commitment, Christie Lites looks for products that are first in its class. We believe the MAC Aura's patented color mixing system, powerful output, clean optics and affordable price tag will deliver the design community a fabulous tool. We are very pleased to be adding a significant quantity to our product line.”
The MAC Aura is a ground-breaking wash light with two independent illumination systems – multicolor beam LEDs and a backlight LED lens array - that launched at the PLASA trade show in mid-September, winning a PLASA Award for Innovation. It is capable of producing new eye-candy effects plus functions as a highly capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed color.
Martin US President Brian Friborg stated, “Our latest LED moving head launches remind me of when we launched the MAC 2000 fixtures years ago. Like the MAC 2000s, the MAC 101â„¢ and now the MAC Aura are quickly becoming the standard of the industry. Launching new products with a home run is always fun and I cannot wait to step up to the plate again with our next products.”
