Digico's FPGA technology that is built into the SD9 is getting a boost from a new release of free software and firmware upgrades. The upgrades are supposed to free up more of the FPGA's processing power. In some cases they are reporting up to 100% power on select features.This upgrade is free to call existings SD9 owners an...
The MA NPU (Network Processing Unit) unites the calculation power in the network and offers the same CPU power as the grandMA2 consoles. The MA NPU can handle 4,096 parameters.
With an easy to read touchscreen the MA NPU allows intuitive use and easy access to all the important information. 8 x DMX XLR 5-pin connectors on the back the MA NPU allow a most flexible use within the network environment.
The MA NPU (Network Processing Unit) is the link between the Ethernet and DMX controlled devices. It's also possible to use the MA NPU for additional control applications; its full capabilities become visible when operated in the MA-Net2. For decentralised DMX networks, the MA NPU converts the incoming Ethernet data into DMX512-A data. The data conversion supports MA-Net and MA-Net2. The converted data are transmitted via 8 independent DMX connectors, which can also be configured as DMX inputs.
In a network, several consoles share the available MA NPUs. This allows DMX devices being used by several consoles together and provides a redundant mode of operation without additional components such as DMX mergers.
Any MA NPU connected to grandMA2 onPC enables the software to send ??real DMX data. This converts grandMA2 onPC into a full-featured lighting control system with up to 4,096 parameters.
The company was founded in 1983 by Michael Adenau (MA) and enjoys strong growth from the very beginning until today. More than 10,000 MA control desks are being used all over the world and MA´s digital dimming systems have become an industry standard. The success accelerated in 1985, when software specialist Ernst Ebrecht joined MA Lighting as a partner. In this period MA introduced the Lightcommander 24 and Lightcommander 48 control desks. When launched in 1992 the MA Scancommander caused a huge stir in the burgeoning world of moving light control. This product established MA Lighting as a leading innovator of lighting control for the global touring and event sector. Leading producers of intelligent lighting showed great interest in MA's new operating philosophy, which radically differed from the historical "dimmer -oriented" control systems of that time. In the spring of 1998 MA showed the world the eagerly awaited grandMA console. This hybrid lighting control console brought a new level of hardware sophistication to the lighting world. The full color touch screens, motorized faders, built in UPS (uninterruptible power supply) and hard drive were only the beginning. The summer of 2000 saw the launch of a host of new products from MA, the grandMA light, the grandMA replay unit and the grandMA offline editor. In the autumn of 2001, the grandMA range will be completed with the introduction of the grandMA ultra-light. The ultra-light has 1,024 channels but retains the main features of a grandMA at a very competitive price. Today, MA Lighting are well known for their technical know-how and have achieved an unique international reputation for its operational philosophy. MA´s award-winning products are extremely reliable and offer cutting-edge solutions for dimming and control. Organizational Structure This story of success is strongly based on the teamwork between MA and Lightpower. Lightpower, located in Paderborn, is handling the international distribution of MA products since 1987. The two companies work very closely together and, through their respective roles, have made each other stronger. Production, and research & development are located in MA´s modern headquarters in Waldbuettelbrunn. For marketing, sales and technical support Lightpower has founded a new subsidiary: MA Lighting International. All of these activities are coordinated in their Paderborn facilities.
