Christie Lites has taken delivery of their first 50 MA onPC command wings from A.C.T Lighting. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of the grandMA in North America.
With 12 locations in the U.S. and Canada, Christie Lites supplies equipment and services to meet the needs of lighting designers and chief electricians across their extensive client base.
"We purchased the onPC command wing units to extend usage of the flexible and powerful grandMA control system to customers who need portability on location or find that it's physically difficult to use a full grandMA2 console," says Christie Lites CEO Huntly Christie at the company's headquarters in Orlando. "The onPC command wing can be used anywhere and for an affordable price."
MA's onPC command wing is a portable solution offering realtime control for 2,048 parameters in combination with grandMA2 onPC. Designed as the perfect hardware expansion to the grandMA2 onPC software, onPC command wing enables the look and feel of the software to be as close as possible to a real grandMA2 console.
Its command section is similar to the grandMA2 layout and features 2 A/B faders, one level-wheel, individually backlit and dimmable silent (clickless) keys and an integrated universal power supply. The unit has an ergonomic design and is lightweight (tipping the scales at just 6 kg) and rock solid.
onPC command wing comes with free grandMA2 onPC software. It offers two built-in DMX ports as well as the possibility to send two additional DMX universes via Ethernet. A simple USB connection between the MA onPC command wing and the computer running the grandMA2 onPC software permits all inputs and outputs of a grandM2 console to be available to the user. DMX, MIDI, timecode and analogue remote are all on hand directly at onPC command wing.
The portability and mobility of onPC command wing also make it an ideal backup solution within the grandMA2 system; a powerful control solution on the road or in smaller theaters, shows and clubs; or a handy choice for preprogramming.
"We're pleased to have onPC command wings in our inventory and expect the units to be a popular control solution for our customers," Christie concludes.
