Viper Arrives At White Light

Viper, the new high-performance moving light from Martin Professional, has arrived at entertainment lighting specialist White Light, and is available for hire.
Designed around a brand new 1000-watt HID source, the Mac Viper’s light output exceeds many 1200-watt lighting fixtures, with Viper both more compact and faster moving than those higher-wattage fixtures while also using less energy.
The Viper Profile spotlight offers a 10-44 degree zoom, two 5-position indexing/rotating gobo wheels, an effect wheel, CMY colour mixing plus a CTO correction wheel, eight slot colour wheel, iris, strobe, four-facet prism and soft frost. Viper also features a 140mm front lens, giving great “fat beam” looks when the fixture is viewed front-on.
“We think the Viper is a great light,” says Dave Isherwood, White Light’s Hire and Technical Director. “Its output is a dramatic step up from the many 700W fixtures around, and it is much more practical than the MacIII for those who don’t need that ultimate brightness. Viper is a great alternative to all of the 1200W fixtures; you forget how long many of those have been around now, and the Viper is a more modern, more energy efficient alternative.”
The Mac Viper is available now, just part of White Light’s extensive rental fleet that allows lighting designers to pick the best tools for whatever project they happen to be working on.
