grandMA lights Leonardo


For his recent DVD shoot Brazilian singer Leonardo was lit with a design created by Danny Nolan and controlled by GrandMA.

The show in the Credicard Hall in Sao Paulo, Brazil was controlled by 1 grandMA full-size, 1 grandMA light as well as 3 media PC´s with grandMA video software and 1 MA NSP (Network Signal Processor).

“I decided to go for grandMA as the main console to run everything”, explained Nolan, “This includes the CI-Tronics LED tubes which were controlled via the grandMA video Pixel Mapper. Furthermore grandMA video was used for all simultaneous transmissions like the video content for the high and low res LED screens. A grandMA light was used as backup.”

“The whole rig was provided with DMX from a local MA NSP (Network Signal Processor) close to the stage”, Nolan continued, “It was a complex setup running on fibre optic cable. At the same time it was very straightforward to get everything working. After using many other desks for years, I can easily say that the grandMA system is by far the best. It’s quick, reliable and flexible.”

The lighting rig featured 9 x DTS XR700 Spot, 20 x DTS XM1200 Spot, 39 x DTS XR700 Wash, 8 x DTS XR 9 Spot as well as a selection of LED-tubes from CI Tronics and the LED panels from On Projeções.

On Projeções provided the LED Screens. LSD Led Solution Design provided the media PC’s with the grandMA video software.
