“Awesome console”

grandMA2 light in control at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) has taken delivery of a MA Lighting grandMA2 light console which will become the venue’s main, large show lighting console. “It was time we upgraded and the grandMA2 is an awesome console,” remarked Brian Nash, AV & Production Services Manager.

Michael Hughes, senior lighting operator at the BCEC, took delight in taking the grandMA2 out for its inaugural run and he was thrilled with its performance. “I’ve used the classic grandMA light for many years but the grandMA2 light is great,” he said. “I found the transaction between the grandMA ‘series 1’ and the grandMA2 very easy. After a few hours on the new board I knew I was going to be confident using it for the first time on one of our larger shows for the year.”

The grandMA2 light is the perfect tool to control all kinds of lighting genres like conventionals, moving lights, LEDs, video and media and supplies an intuitive and fast control of all connected fixtures and channels. The grandMA2 light can handle an almost infinite number of presets, cues, pages, sequences and effects.

“I really like the layout of it: a screen that’s stacked vertically, flat faders and the keyboard being inbuilt,” added Hughes. “It’s just way more comfortable to sit at and very easy to use.” The grandMA2 light has 4,096 parameters, 15 motorized executor faders and two touchscreens available.

“I like the executor buttons which I use a lot because many of the shows at the BCEC require quick access,” said Hughes. “For the same reason, I like that the cross fade across all the palettes is adjustable really easily. It’s great that everything is customizable and easy to change.”
