M6 CONTROLLER TAKES HOME THE PIPA AWARD
To celebrate the 15th Musikmesse International Press Awards (MIPA), the first Prolight+Sound press award was introduced to coincide with this year’s Prolight+Sound. Every year MIPA invites the participation of over 100 production and entertainment magazines from around the world to vote for the best musical instruments and audio equipment in more than 40 categories.
This year - to celebrate the 15th MIPA - the first Prolight + Sound Press Award (PIPA) was introduced. The list of participating magazines was complemented by magazines from the field of professional audio and lighting. At this year’s awards Martin Professional’s M6 controller won the PIPA for best lighting controller.
Matthias Hinrichs, proud Product Manager for Martin, was delighted: “What a great reward for all of us at Martin and for our loyal user base. Over the past ten years many people have played a part by providing feedback and support and by believing in us. Martin would not have been able to have a successful controller in this highly competitive market without our growing global community of talented, dedicated individuals, who have a passion for the M-series controllers. This award really belongs to all of our users. A big thanks from me to all of you.”
Designed to easily handle even the most demanding multimedia shows, the M6 console can control everything from conventional and moving lights to the most advanced media server. The console is based on Martin’s proprietary M-Series™ software platform and provides users with a highly advanced visual control surface for fast programming and extensive playback control.
The M6 is Martin’s most advanced console design to date, featuring a total of 44 playbacks, 10 motorised faders, 12 additional faders, and a total of 17 encoders for parameter access. It also features Martin’s proprietary LiveBlender™ T-Bar, FastDial™ rotary encoders, and BriteTouch™ display.
