Martin by HARMAN today announced two new members to the M-Series family, the M1 HD and the M2GO HD. Carrying the same DNA as the acclaimed M1, the M1 HD brings more power, speed, a new foldable multi-touch head display and four additional parameters encoders. The M2GO HD is the logical continuation of the M2GO and carries a brand new processing core, added built-in foldable multi-touch screen and four additional parameters encoders.
Both new controllers include the latest graphic chipset to ensure smooth graphical effects of future software upgrades and come standard with a bright, multi-touch head display. The high-resolution crisp LCD display features capacitive multi-touch and can be folded down to retain a compact footprint.
In addition to the original four encoders, the M1 HD and the M2GO HD include four additional encoders on the right side of the head display. These encoders follow the same ‘ease-of-use’ concept found on the M-Series flagship M6. Any parameter, effects or speed control can be assigned and mapped by the user which allows for faster access while programming.
The M1 HD processing unit delivers 40 universes of DMX, Artnet and sACN. All 40 universes are fully unlocked with no need to obtain extra licensing.
The M1 HD control surface retains its design from the original M1. With 22 playbacks faders, 64 playbacks buttons, main go section, grand master control, four encoders, numerical keypad, 12 user functions key and five LCD buttons for quick parameter access. The M1 HD has four DMX ports and one DMX input. Two Ethernet RJ45 for Artnet, sACN and tracking backup complete the package. A total of seven USB ports are available. MIDI and SMPTE interfaces are now built in to the M1 HD as standard features to ensure consistency between consoles.
The M2GO HD processing unit delivers 20 universes of DMX, Artnet and sACN in a rugged, roadworthy package aimed at lighting designers on the go. All 20 universes are fully unlocked with no need to obtain extra licensing.
The M2GO HD control surface features 10 playbacks, 40 playbacks buttons, main go section, grand master control, four encoders, numerical keypad, eight user functions key and a 3.5” display for quick parameter access. The M2GO HD also features four DMX ports and two Ethernet RJ45 for Artnet, sACN and tracking backup. A total of three USB ports are available. MIDI and SMPTE interfaces are now built in to the M2GO HD as standard features.
Like all other members of the M-Series family, the M1 HD and M2GO HD are fully compatible with any of the other M-Series console and PC software. Any show file can be moved to any M-Series console and M-PC for hassle-free integration and great ease of use.
