Integrating with third-party software via the MVR standard, P3 System Controllers are able to import and export industry-standard files eliminating duplicate actions, enabling designs (and patches) to be shared between lighting consoles, CAD programs, visualisers and the Martin P3 ecosystem.
Undergoing major upgrades, the new P3 Software Update 6.0.0 presents an redesigned, interface with better support for FOH and other performance-monitoring environments. P3 System Controller Software 6.0.0 enables real-time feedback and remote system monitoring.
“We are truly excited to elevate Martin P3 system control with a next-generation update that takes video-mapping of creative LED fixtures to a whole other level,“ said Wouter Verlinden, Product Manager Creative LED, Lighting and Control. “We were looking for ways to save designers valuable time. Custom content creation simplified with the ability to export a mask of mapped fixtures and the ability to import and export MVR files was just the beginning. We can’t wait for everyone to experience the new P3 software enhancements and our newest P3 System Controllers.”
Version 6.0.0 of Martin P3 System Controller software is available for the P3-175 and P3-275 System Controllers, but also for the legacy P3-050, P3-150 and P3-300 models. Version 6.0.0 is also available for the P3-PC version, running on any Windows computer and allowing lighting designers to get started easily and for free. It can be used as a basic mapping tool; addressing tool; Art-Net / sACN to P3 bridge; or as a full P3 control solution – mixing lighting controls and video content into fixtures. P3-PC System Controller Software 6.0.0 is now also compatible with Windows 11.
