Channel 9 installs MA Lighting system
22 June 2012
Australia - Channel 9 productions Today Show, Mornings and A Current Affair have recently moved into their larger Studio 22 at the Sydney Channel 9 premises to share the studio with Wide World of Sport, Sunday Footy Show, Australia's Funniest Home Video, The Footy Show plus other shows. This studio can produce between up to nine hours of live television seven days a week so with this in mind, the decision was made to upgrade of the studio control room.
As well as a new vision switcher, production area and studio floor upgrade, the studio control room now houses a new MA Lighting system comprising of two grandMA2 light consoles, a MA NPU (Network Processing Unit), a MA onPC command wing and a grandMA2 fader wing. The installation was completed in only a few weeks and training was given for those in the lighting department who had never used the grandMA2 before.
"I was very happy with our lighting directors who just jumped in to the training and within two weeks were 'on-air' using the consoles," commented senior lighting director Stuart Anderson.
