MAC TW1: The new MAC TW1 is a 1200W tungsten wash fixture that brings to the stage avant-garde features and patent pending technology to equip the lighting designer with the broadest possibility of effects, colors, and design. A twin lens zoom system, full CMY color mixing and choice of internal or external electronic dimming are contained in a sturdy magnesium structure that allows the fast and silent convection of heat away from the back of the fixture so the stage or set remains cool and quiet.

Maxxyz PC: This new computer-based version of the popular Maxxyz console is an off-line and online editing tool that gives full Maxxyz functionality from the ease and convenience of a PC or laptop. It can be used for off-line programming and can be linked to any DMX interface device for direct control of fixtures. Featuring dongle-protected software without the need for expensive hardware, it is the ideal programming platform for a large variety of shows. Also, use Maxxyz PC in conjunction with the Maxxyz Wing, or as a backup to the Maxxyz console.
