Martin scoops 100 Million in Albania28 January 2011
British TV game show, The Million Pound Drop, is being produced for the first time in Albania with Martin MAC 101 LED luminaires providing the lighting.
Albanian television station Top Channel began airing 100 Million in January to top ratings. Martin Professional distributor Prosound Audio & Light of Albania provided the MAC 101 LED moving head wash lights for the opening show and the station was so impressed they decided to purchase the units.
“They chose the MAC 101 for the beam effect, nice colour reproduction, flicker free on camera looks and not least its low price. Also, for the low power consumption vs output,” said Prosound Sales Manager Kliton Gjika. “Beside them are 300 watt fixtures and it is easy to see that the MAC 101 outperforms them.”
Martin’s MAC 101 has been used in a variety of applications, from tours and events to nighttime venues and TV studios. Being small at 3.7 kg and easy to handle and rig, the versatile LED moving head wash light features a tight and bright beam, rapid movement and calibrated colours. On 100 Million, they are placed directly above and beside a backdrop LED screen as key visual effects in primary camera looks. Lighting design for the show is by Top Channel personnel.
“The MAC 101 has performed very well and I think everyone in the industry now realises that the days of the discharge lamp are numbered,” Kliton Gjika said, giving thanks to Top Channel’s vice general manager and lighting department personnel for their support and belief in Prosound and Martin Pro.”
