grandMA3 gets all the attention

New series successfully introduced

With the first live presentation of the new grandMA3 series the MA Lighting booths at Prolight + Sound 2018 were the place to be.

Founded on the legacy of the previous grandMA consoles, the grandMA3 represents a radical re-think of what’s possible from a lighting control platform. The elegant new system-architecture incorporates new fixture, feature and effects-handling at its very heart.
The system features ground-breaking concepts from top industry visionaries, presented within a refined user interface, and is designed to make practical tasks more intuitive. The physical design detail of the grandMA3 range is extraordinary and focused on delivering the best possible user experience, now and into the future.

The interest of all visitors at the exhibition was very high, therefore all 13 grandMA3 hands on stations and the dedicated grandMA3 live demonstration auditorium were constantly packed with MA Lighting users from all over the world.

Additionally the dot2 range was displayed on a dedicated dot2 booth. Four hands on stations as well as live demonstrations of tips and tricks attracted much interest.

Following the introduction of the new General Device Type Format (GDTF) in March 2018, a combined press conference with Vectorworks Inc and Robe lighting on the first day of the show was another important highlight for MA.

This new development for the entertainment design and production industry will change the way lighting designers, lighting fixture manufacturers, lighting console manufacturers and lighting visualizers will work together. The three companies have jointly led the charge to develop this new data format which creates a unified definition for the exchange of device data between consoles, CAD and previsualization software.
