Ben Payne and Peter Skytte reflect on latest Martin Professional products

Following the launch of the MAC Aura XIP and a busy ISE, Martin’s Director of Lighting for the EMEA, Ben Payne, and Director of Product Management, Peter Skytte, tell TPi what we can expect to see from the manufacturer in the next year.

It’s safe to say that there is an air of positivity within the live events market at the moment. Nowhere was this clearer than at ISE 2023, with hordes of attendees descending on the various stands to talk about the future of the entertainment industry. One stand that certainly had its fair share of visitors during the week was Martin Professional. Sharing a stand with the other branches of the Harman umbrella including JBL and AKG, the lighting specialist showcased some of its latest products including the MAC Aura XIP – the updated version of the famed MAC Aura XB.

A week after recovering from the show, TPi grabbed some time with Director of Lighting for the EMEA region, Ben Payne, alongside Director of Product Management, Peter Skytte, to hear what the company had in store for the year ahead.
