Martin | smartMAC | smartMAC™

The smartMAC is an extremely bright profile light and image projector,
the most efficient profile luminaire available in its class.
Versatile and ideally suited for indoor venues and bars, smartMAC is also
perfect for environments that require total silence such as conference rooms,
auditoriums, the theatre, TV studios, lounges, restaurants, hotel receptions,
and shops.

Clever solutions to old problems are what make smartMAC smart. In fact, some of the
solutions are so new, we’re getting them patented.
Brighter light
for less
The brightest luminaire in its
class, the 150 W fixture even
outperforms many of its 250 W
rivals. Why pay more for less?
Performs silently without fans,
offering discreet image projection, subtle mood lighting, or
dramatic effects for the eye, not
the ear.
service intervals
power bills
No dust and pollutants, fewer
moving parts and greater energy efficiency offer significant
savings in cleaning and maintenance.
High energy efficiency and reduced heat output mean savings
on power bills – both for running
smartMAC and with room air
Compact fit
and versatile
Entirely new way
of changing gobos
Slips in nicely under a low lounge
ceiling, thanks to the slim mounting system. The small footprint
means more headroom!
Lift the cover and access the
color and gobo wheels without
tools – you haven’t been able to
do that before!
Brilliant image quality to promote your business, brand or venue, or to create your own unique
mood – you decide!
Super sharp image
Superbly optimized optics provides very
precise image quality and great depth of
field, with excellent center-to-edge beam
uniformity that keeps the image sharp.
Variable focus
The variable focus system lets you adjust image sharpness at any projection distance or create unfocused
background effects.
Customized image
Change color filters and gobos
easily without tools simply by lifting the dedicated cover – this is
a unique, patent pending Martin
solution that lets you customize gobos for private parties, create your own unique mood, or throw your logo or
name on any surface.
Range of effects
Short, wide throw
At 25°, the cut-off angle is higher than for other comparable products, allowing for a greater projection diameter
at shorter distances.
The smartMAC also has a fast shutter for instant or
fade control of light intensity, strobe effects, and auto or
music-triggered color and gobo effects.
Brighter than the rest
Type: Metal gobo
Preinstalled gobos
The smartMAC comes with its own unique set of pre-installed glass and metal gobos, designed for stages,
dance floors, or venues. All gobos can be continuously rotated or indexed to any required and repeatable
Color wheel
The color wheel has eight interchangeable color filters plus open, with full and split positions, offering a
broad spectrum of colors.
Fast installation
The special mounting and bracket system significantly
reduces installation costs and labor time, with the provision of a secondary fixing for safety. The low installation height and the small footprint make smartMAC
ideal for venues with low ceilings.
Clever cable management
The smartMAC cleverly collects the cables in an easy to
access port in the base. Simply click the lid into place to
cover all cable connections.
Getting more out of the lamp
With smartMAC, the lamp performs in a clean environment that optimizes lamp life. Depending on the
environment and lamp type, you get up to two years
between lamp replacements – and the lamp is quick
and easy to replace.
Almost takes care of itself
Incredibly easy to install and operate – and once
running, you’ll experience significant savings in
cleaning, service and maintenance
Quick and easy maintenance
Dust-proof luminaire
The reality for most luminaires is that they are mounted
and then often forgotten – until something goes wrong.
The smartMAC is virtually maintenance-free and if you
need to get the ladder out, service is completed rapidly
by just one pair of hands.
The closed construction around the smartMAC lamp, optics and effect wheels creates a dust-resilient luminaire,
which is made possible by thermal management technology that eliminates fans, keeping the head free of external sources of pollutants.
Bank the difference with smartMAC. Following the initial purchase price,
smartMAC saves you money from day one on your power bills and service
and maintenance checks.
Smaller power bills
Efficient lighting means substantial cost savings. The long-life 150 W discharge lamp
delivers a 44% lumen output, equating to the highest lumen per watt ratio in the
150-250 W class. This exceeds in brightness what others achieve with 250 W and for
you that means smaller power bills.
Cheaper lamp – greater output
Replacement lamps are cheaper, too – buy a 150 W lamp and get the performance of a
250 W lamp. The long life (3000 hours) MSD 150/2 lamp is standard, and a very long
life (9000 hours) CDM 150 lamp is also available.
Save money on service
With smartMAC there’s no reason to climb ladders and blow dust out of
the system, or to clean the inside of the lens and lamp fitting. With no fans,
smartMAC has fewer moving parts and turns a greater proportion of energy
into light, reducing heat and wear and tear on the system.
Increased resale value
In addition to savings on your total investment over the product lifetime,
smartMAC holds its value and offers great resale value, because smartMAC
is built for long life performance and durability.
Helps you make friends
The smartMAC is your hard-wearing, long-lifetime profile luminaire solution,
perfect for every situation, helping you stay friends with your bank manager.
Bank the difference
Keeps cool without fans
With smartMAC, we’ve done the thinking for
you with rugged, state-of-the-art technology and innovative solutions. And, you get
the strength of Martin’s global R&D, mass
production facilities, and service. Why settle
for less?
Available in black and white
The smartMAC is available with the casing in black and
in white. The white model is less conspicuous on lightcolored surfaces and in architectural environments.
The smartMAC meets the new EU RohS standard, meaning no banned substances, such as lead solder, are used
during manufacture. Parts of smartMAC are recyclable.
Soft beam the front-end
The smartMAC is sold with the profile lens as standard. An alternative front-end casing is available as an
option with a Fresnel lens and is easily installed with
four quarter-turns, for creating a soft-edged beam.
Easy maintenance & hassle-free service
Like all Martin products, smartMAC is designed and
constructed to be used. If a product requires service,
then this needs to be on-site and hassle-free. Martin’s
service organization ensures that wherever you have a
smartMAC, we are not far away.
Use around the world
With user-configurable voltage and frequency settings, smartMAC can be quickly adapted to electrical
requirements around the world.
Unprecedented reliability
The thermal management technology uses the aluminum
casing and specially-designed fins to conduct heat away
from the head, keeping the front of the luminaire cool and
offering unprecedented reliability. We have a patent pending
for this unique solution.
Ready to entertain
With hundreds of possible combinations from the preprogrammed pan/tilt and effects macros, smartMAC is
ready to entertain. Access the macros via DMX or the
onboard control panel.
