The Fraschini Theatre in Pavia, Italy, has recently purchased two dot2 consoles (a dot2 XL-F and a dot2 core) to use for their touring shows. The theatre hosts several visiting companies and is also an opera house. Furthermore, like most Italian theatres, the venue is hired out for dance exhibitions and other events during the season.
The technical staff decided to look for a solution which could meet their many requirements, namely a versatile console on which they could programme complex cue lists even when programming time is very short, or that was ideal when the operator has to improvise a show in a professional manner. Therefore they decided to invest in the dot2.
Intuitive operation is at the core of the dot2 philosophy, and with a comprehensive set of connectivity hardware on all console models, the dot2 range is suitable for most theatre, touring, corporate, television and education lighting environments.
The easy to operate dot2 software is available in multiple languages and provides onboard Help and Direct Hints to guide a new user through operating the console to realize its full potential. Simply Patch and Go, with no additional setup required.
A full range of clever programming and playback features provide intuitive access to advanced functionality. Access to generic fixture functions is via a Smart Dialogue, and Store Look functionality ensures that you can control and record what’s intended. Automated tools; Track & Shield and Auto-Unblock simplify cue-list management and Auto-Fix allows playback page changes to occur without unexpected results.
The dot2 will feel familiar to theatrical users, 100mm faders provide full access to the master playback list at all times, and a tactile wheel gives access to lighting levels. Command-line syntax is fully supported alongside graphically assisted touch screen control of all features.
Build for touring; the dot2 hardware is compact, durable and remarkably lightweight. Its optional modular plug & play F-wings and B-wings allow playback expansion and the full-tracking-back-up functionality ensures that your show runs trouble free. Live Time, Tap Sync and multiple touch screens allow instant access to all playback functionality. And sophisticated features like Soft-LTP automatically preserve key-lighting levels without going through black.
