Aeris is the redesign of Martin Pro’s moving head, the MAC2000.
It implements digital technology in order to project video and endless ‘gobo’ animations on stage. Using a DLP projection chip and a different lens system, numerous mechanical components where eliminated, such as the shutter, gobos and effects modules, and 13 step motors, thus significantly reducing its weight and improving product reliability.
Mechanical locking systems were redesigned with easy access and visibility as priorities, to improve its set up time and handling on stage.
Designed in collaboration with Olivier Houdart, Morten Trolle, Dorte Hyldgaard and Morten Nedergaard at AAU, 2007.
