MA Lighting’s grandMA range of consoles have built themselves a reputation as the ultimate solution to lighting control in the entertainment and touring industry. 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 grandMA3 consoles features dual-wheel encoders, which provide users with intuitive control of additional features and functions.
Feature-mapping of the dual-wheel encoders is customizable, facilitating ease of use and faster programming.
Long-life motorized playback faders are used across the entire grandMA3 console range. The faders incorporate a color-changing light pipe.
A fully flexible assignment of playback functionality allows for 30% more playback handles than any previous grandMA series console. All playbacks have direct access to button pushes as well as intensity and timing changes thanks to the new rotary RGB backlit encoders.
New buttons have been specifically developed for the grandMA3 consoles, to satisfy the needs of the most demanding users.
The almost-silent buttons feature low travel and have a positive actuation-point, ensuring fast, accurate operation and a tactile experience that professional users will appreciate.
Even the backlit button-caps have been ergonomically optimized to reduce mis-hits.
The grandMA3 control consoles are compatible with shows created on grandMA2 consoles. Where features allow, existing shows can be exported from grandMA2 software 3.4 for use in all grandMA3 console models.
The grandMA3 full-size and light console models also incorporate fully featured Mode2, which runs native grandMA2 software version 3.4 and later.
Full details of the console will be available on 10th April 2018, at Prolight & Sound Frankfurt.
