grandMA: PLASA Success

Especially the new grandMA2 software release 2.4 received much praise at PLASA 2011.

PLASA Show 2011 turned out to be a highlight for MA Lighting and its co-exhibitors MAJOR and Rainbow Colour Changers in this year’s trade show calendar again. . Especially the new grandMA2 software release 2.4 received much praise.



MA Lighting’s Managing Director Michael Althaus commented: “This year’s PLASA was the ideal platform for our new distributor Ambersphere Solutions to position itself in the market and to convince with its total support approach. Next to this, the show underlined again the trust the market has in grandMA2. We received a lot of positive feedback on the console.
Especially the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 has drawn much attention to our control and network solutions that proofed their reliability in this biggest TV-show of all times. Additionally introducing our software release 2.4 at PLASA gave us the opportunity to directly receive comments from our customers who were very content about this step towards an even more powerful grandMA2.”


The release adds a multitude of new functionality, such as:

  • Preview of cue values in all sheets and in the grandMA 3D software;
  • Cue Zero as a new sequence tracking option;
  • Temporary Views for Groups, Sequences, Views, Macros, Effects;
  • Template Show Folder for write protected showfiles and new programming functions like Circular Copy, Shuffle Values, Odd ID/Even ID selection and user defined programmer/executor times.
