MA VPU Light


MA International has introduced the light (Video Processing Unit) and relaunched the plus and MK2. With the light (Video Processing Unit), MA Lighting has developed a compact video control offering nearly the same performance as the plus and basic. Only 2HU height, the light features sophisticated hardware and proven MA software. Furthermore the in-built screen displays all essential information about the status of the light. At the same time, MA has enhanced its plus and basic in comparison to the light. All will now offer Full-HD ( plus MK2 6 layers, basic MK2 4 layers, light 2 layers – which are rendered in parallel). Also plus MK2 and basic MK2 are now equipped with 3 x DVI-outs instead of two (as with the prior version), while the light offers 2 x DVI-outs and 1 x VGA-out. All have common features enabling all videos, still images and 3D objects to be scaled, positioned, tiled, coloured and manipulated directly from any 2 . The workflow is as simple as controlling any other fixture – the just has to be added to the network session – no additional parameters are needed since the calculate these themselves. All videos can be displayed in up to Full-HD. Furthermore, the internal output synchronization of the MA-Net2 ensures the highest frame and DMX synchronicity. The can be programmed via the grandMA2 console in blind and preview modes. Also the has a new Single-Layer-Crossfade mode which allows the user to program all content on the same layer. Each comes with a pre-installed content library comprising more than 17GB of professional content. More info at www.malighting.com
