SHENZHEN, China - The Chinese version of the American television singing competition, NBC’s “The Sing Off,” airs on Shenzhen Satellite Television and uses Martin Professional MAC III series luminaires for the dynamic visual accompaniment.

Singing a cappella, that is, without instrumental accompaniment, is demanding and requires highly refined vocal intonation. Martin’s flagship MAC III Profile and MAC III Performance luminaires were specially selected for their accurate color mixing and delicate color tones as an ideal match for the strong sense of melody and rhythm of the a cappella style.

The MAC III series lights were also the main dynamic lighting instruments used on the US version of the show and to this end organizers invited the original stage designers and lighting designers to China for guidance.

Some 18 MAC III Performances play an important role on the set. The fixture’s framing system with full crossover of each blade and continuous rotation bring infinite possibilities for projection, framing and effects, while adding pattern and color to the set.

Patterns and color from MAC III Profiles upstage and below stage provide backlight projection while 18 MAC 600 moving heads work closely with the MAC III series to add color to the various a cappella performances.
