“Perfect for television studios”

Channel 9 votes for grandMA2

Israel’s Channel 9 broadcasts news around the clock from their studios in Modiʿin as well as talk shows, current affairs programs, series, original productions, telenovelas and many more. The channel has two studios, a large 900sqm space and smaller one of 350sqm. A new lighting system was installed with grandMA2 control with the move into the new facility.

Chief lighting designer Michael Schwartz explains the selection of the grandMA2: “I chose MA due to my experiences with the MA system in the past and because of the great reliability and many possibilities which are perfect for television studios.”

For the large studio, Schwartz selected 1 x grandMA2 light and 1 x MA command wing and for the small studio he chose 1 x grandMA2 ultra-light.

Sagi Lamay, project manager from A.B. Electronics, explains: “The request was for a closed system with a full backup for the two studios. That's why we added 3 x MA 4Port Node onPC as backup solutions. Two units were installed in the large studio and one in the small studio. The whole system works on a single network in the same session with two separate users. Thus we created a full backup so the control room can operate the two studios. Additionally we use a 16 x MA DMX Booster.”

All of the installation work was carried out by A.B. Electronics, MA Lighting’s distributor in Israel.
