City Theatrical Launches Three Beam Control Accessories for Martin MAC Aura XIP

City Theatrical now offers three standard beam control accessories designed to fit Martin Lighting’s MAC Aura XIP lighting fixture: the Martin MAC Aura XIP Top Hat, Hexcel Louver, and Concentric Ring. These three beam control accessories were developed based on City Theatrical’s understanding of the unique accessory needs of lighting professionals and the high demand for this moving light fixture in the market. Each new Martin MAC Aura XIP beam control product offers control of stray beams and light spill.

City Theatrical’s engineers and craftspeople design and create beam shaping lighting accessories, like the new Martin MAC Aura XIP Top Hat (P/N 2798), from their New Jersey-based factory. City Theatrical works with designers and manufacturers every day to develop new beam control products, and there are currently dozens of unique variations of City Theatrical Standard Top Hats available. Top Hats help prevent light spill from modern LED fixtures, which can extend nearly 180 degrees from the light source. Top Hats provide careful beam control for the Martin MAC Aura XIP and many other moving light fixtures for entertainment projects.

City Theatrical Concentric Rings deliver 45° cut-off of light spill but from a shorter depth. When space is at a premium, such as on moving lights hung in a tight rig, using a Martin MAC Aura XIP Concentric Ring (P/N 2796) would be a top choice for designers seeking beam control. Concentric Rings are also used to create a Svoboda-like style on lighting fixtures that are in view of the audience.

Serving a similar beam control function to a City Theatrical Top Hat or Concentric Ring at a minimal depth, Martin MAC Aura XIP Hexcel Louvers (P/N 2797) provide beam control and 45° cut-off of light spill. City Theatrical Hexcel Louvers use cells that are 3/8” x 3/8” x 3/8” deep, and provide a sleek appearance when mounted on the lighting fixture.

City Theatrical currently offers 28 styles of beam control accessories for 13 different Martin Lighting moving light fixtures through their dealer network, and can also create custom manufactured beam control accessories for end users of Martin Lighting fixtures.
