MA grandMA Pico
MA Lighting has expanded its grandMA range with a new member, the grandMA Pico. The new console is specifically designed for the use in theatres and the hardware has been optimized to meet their needs. Similar to the larger consoles of the grandMA range, a number pad, a go-plus, a go-minus, and a pause key are all present. One color touchscreen display, five manual faders, five physical playback buttons (on 128 pages), 1,024 DMX channels and free visualization software make the grandMA Pico the perfect introductory console. Additionally it is possible to connect one remote and up to four grandMA video stations. The console utilizes the same syntax, windows, and menus as the larger consoles. Because of its tiny footprint the grandMA pico is perfect for smaller theatres.
