“Small and extremely powerful”

Gearhouse South Africa purchases four dot2 XL-F

Gearhouse South Africa has purchased four dot2 XL-F consoles which will be split equally between their Johannesburg and Durban branches.

“We chose them to fill a gap we felt existed in our inventory of consoles, for desks suited to the smaller and medium sized corporate work,” commented Stuart Andrews, lighting operations manager. “Given that we have established the grandMA2 platform as the standard for the Gearhouse Johannesburg branch to supersede the grandma ‘series 1’ platform on which we operated for many years, it made sense to us to continue in this vein. The units are small and extremely powerful consoles yet very compact.”

The dot2 XL-F is a compact lighting console designed for small to medium sized productions up to 4,096 control channels.

Intuitive operation is 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 to operate the console to 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 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.
