HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control, today introduced the Martin by HARMAN VDO Atomic Bold creative LED lighting fixture. Delivering an astonishing range of functionality to support a range of applications, the VDO Atomic Bold combines industry-leading features, looks and effects to take its place as one of the most sophisticated hybrid LED fixtures on the market.
High lumen output, true tungsten emulation, smart interlocking mechanics and a compact footprint make the VDO Atomic Bold powerfully versatile. Combining an audience blinder, strobe light, creative LED pixel/surface (beam and aura) and stage wash; the VDO Atomic Bold equips lighting designers with an incredible palette of application possibilities.
The fixture retains the same precision interlocking mechanics, same universal cabling and a similar look as its popular sibling, the VDO Atomic Dot, but is much larger with higher, full-color LED lumen output. In addition to its unique, octagonal-shaped design that offers single light or large array configuration options, the VDO Atomic Bold features control via Martin’s proprietary P3 software and Art-Net, sACN and DMX protocols, allowing fixtures to be driven from a console, a video source or a mix of both.
While it is targeted to support rental customers and set and lighting designers working in concert/touring and TV shows, the VDO Atomic Bold is also a perfect fit for corporate clients and customers in the high-profile nightclub market.
“Creative LED offers lighting designers so many opportunities to reflect the vision of the artist and to uniquely capture and illustrate the story being told onstage,” said Wouter Verlinden, Martin Creative LED Product Manager. “When we heard from designers just how many uses they were getting out of the VDO Atomic Dot, we knew that the next step in the family evolution would be an even larger fixture that could accomplish the same goals but be bigger, bolder, in full color and offer even more configuration choices. Our engineering team raised the bar with the VDO Atomic Bold, and we believe it will empower and inspire designers to push the boundaries of design and application.”
