MAC Viper AirFX


Both flexible and efficient, the MAC Viper AirFX is a new concept that combines hard-edge, mid-air effects and a beautiful wash field in one luminaire. Featuring a great selection of all-new gobo designs, hard-edge effects remain stunning across the fixture’s entire 11 - 58° zoom range. Capable of snapping or fading into a wash light at any point, a unique and highly efficient optical system means the MAC Viper AirFX can offer the features of a profile at the output of a wash light.

The Viper AirFX has adopted the compact form, impressive speed, superior light quality and beautiful colors that the MAC Viper Profile is renowned for. It is also based on the same 1000-watt lamp for an output that convincingly exceeds any larger, heavier and more power-demanding 1500-watt profile fixture.
