The Martin P3 System Controllers offer an easy to use solution to map video onto Martin Creative LED and Lighting fixtures, including manipulation of the video such as scaling, rotating, mirroring and more. On top of sending video to these fixtures, the P3 System Controllers also merge in controls from any lighting console, allowing you to mix and match video and lighting control of the fixtures, for the best of both worlds and more creative freedom. All connected fixtures are addressed, patched and configured in few clicks, with no need to walk up to any fixture for old-school manual setup. The communication between the fixtures and P3 System Controller is fully bi-direction, so real-time feedback and error-reporting enables you to have a full overview of the entire setup, even in fixed installations where the P3 System Controller can be monitored via the Internet.

The P3-300 System Controller combines the award-winning and intuitive P3 workflow with a brand new high-performance video processing engine. No matter how you mix Martin Creative LED fixtures and P3-enabled MAC moving heads, the workflow remains simple and integrated. The P3-300 is equipped with a DVI input, two SDI inputs (up to 3G), DMX input and Art-Net input. The output capacity of 2.080.000 pixels allows even more products to be driven from a single controller.
