The What: Martin P3 System Controller Software Version 5.2.0 is now available as a free update for the entire family of Martin P3 System Controllers.
The What Else: Martin P3 System Controller Software Version 5.2.0 comes with a range of new features and improvements that benefit newer products such as the MAC Aura PXL and VDO Atomic Dot, as well as long-time Martin favorites like VDO Sceptron, VDO Fatron and Exterior PixLine.
The new software features a P3 switch to istantly toggle individual fixtures between video control and DMX control; it also receives PixelMap input from a lighting desk for up to 128 universes, drive fixtures with a video feed from a media server or dynamically switch between the two.
The Bottom Line: Users can set incoming video streams as the background in ‘Setup View’ and map fixtures directly onto the video in the same window and also preview a render of the incoming video stream on an imported drawing or picture of the stage or building.
The new software updates can be downloaded on the company's website, www.martin.com (opens in new tab).
