For the Children: grandMA2 Joins “Criança Esperança”
In the past, lighting for the show – staged in Rio de Janeiro’s HSBC Arena this year - was controlled using a grandMA “series 1” console. However this moved to 2 x grandMA2 light for 2012 with 2 x MA NPU (Network Processing Unit) and 4 x MA 2Port Node onPC PRO.
Lighting designer and director of Spectrum Design e Iluminaçao Marcos Olivio commented: “The grandMA2 system was chosen a long time ago. As most shows we are working on are DVD shoots, live and corporate events, the system has to be flexible and stable. The real time control, the easy and comfortable programming and overall full-tracking-backup functionality are fantastic and indispensable when working in a professional environment.”
Ludmila Machado worked as assistant to the lighting designer, Ulysses Cruz was the director and Paulo Lebrao the programmer. Spectrum Design e Iluminaçao delivered the lighting equipment.
