Located in the Guangdong province, Zhuhai is a premier tourist spot in China. Recently, it is also the host to the Changlong International Circus Festival, of which the committee selected the HARMAN’s Martin M6 Console to control and calibrate the lighting systems on and around the stage. Local Martin distributor Guangzhou Dan-Pro Stage Equipment Co., Ltd recommended the Martin M6 console as it offers the most advanced visualization of lighting control, accommodating a wide product range from traditional fixtures to moving lights and even the most advanced media servers with ease. The setup for the festival features two M6 consoles of the 64 channel version, as well as eight Ether2DMX8™ DMX routers.
“The M6 console is extremely popular amongst integrators, especially for live applications,” said Yuri Zhang, Vice GM of Guangzhou Dan-Pro Stage Equipment Co., Ltd. “During shows that span multiple days, it is imperative for the lighting systems to be controlled by a console that can consistently keep up with the pace without failure. To this end, the body of the console consists of a lightweight aluminum shell, which also allows for a compact design and fast setup times.”
“The M6 console is one of the most reliable lighting consoles to date,” according to Zhang. “It pushes innovative boundaries in terms of flexibility and modularity, as it works with nearly all forms of lighting equipment. By adding a custom touchscreen display to improve ergonomics and work- flow, we boost user confidence, so that they may focus on the show.”
The Circus Festival organizers, Changlong Group’s board members, and technical staff were all satisfied with the performance of the Martin M6 console, and praised it for its design and effectiveness.
