MA Lighting – MA VPU plus MK2 (Video Processing Unit)

MA Lighting has developed the MA VPU (Video Processing Unit) as a powerful range of solutions for controlling, live accessing and altering videos, still images and 3D objects in real time.

All videos, still images and 3D objects can be scaled, positioned, tiled, coloured and manipulated directly from any grandMA2 console. It is as simple as controlling any other fixture – the MA VPU just has to be added to the network session. There are no additional parameters needed to control an MA VPU. The whole operation relies on the highly intuitive well-established MA philosophy. So if you know grandMA2, you know the MA VPU. Additionally, the free to download VPU software has a teaser mode built-in, which gives you two layers of free playback with limited resolution to just test the functionality at your Windows computer.

Thanks to the power of the HAP codec MA VPU can display all videos in resolutions higher than Full HD now. Furthermore, the internal output synchronisation of the MA-Net2 ensures the highest frame and DMX synchronicity.

Horizontal and vertical softedge blending as well as keystone correction help to scale videos to any size desired. Size doesn’t matter! More than that, the MA VPU offers a convenient 3D keystoning functionality and enables the user to fit content to any 3D objects, regardless of size and shape. Furthermore improvements to frame interpolation and smooth speed control can be used to adjust the playback speed.

Beyond that there is a myriad of functions, features and effects available like frame blending, colour boost, dynamic colour key, contrast, brightness, hue, saturation as well as blur, sepia, black/white, ocean and invert and many more. Everything is easy to access and self-explanatory. Combinations of videos and still images can be mixed and controlled, and JPEG images and standard windows bitmap images such as *.bmp and *.gif as well as *.png with alpha channel are supported. Up to 32 x 3D-video-layers are possible for content.

The MA VPU can be programmed via the grandMA2 console in blind and preview modes. This means that the MA VPU follows the console to blind and preview mode, which simplifies programming considerably. Also the VPU has a Single-Layer-Crossfade mode which allows the user to programm all content on the same layer with programmable fade times.

All three versions of the MA VPU are optimised for transportation, longevity and on-the-road use. Each MA VPU comes with a pre-installed content library comprising more than 17GB of professional content.

MA Lighting – MA 2Port Node WM (Wall Mount)

The MA 2Port Node WM (Wall Mount) sets an additional benchmark in MA Lighting’s networking product range as they feature the 1Gbit/s bandwidth capability. They allow the conversion of Ethernet data into DMX or vice versa and fit perfectly into the grandMA2 system and its MA-Net2 protocol, which is based on this high speed to ensure maximum performance. Optimised for touring and installation purposes, it has a rugged steel housing for a long life even under harsh conditions. The Nodes offer a menu button, a USB connector and a 2″ colour TFT as well as LEDs displaying the current status. All of these ensure a comfortable operation. The MA xPort Nodes are fully configurable from the grandMA2 consoles or from grandMA2 onPC. To achieve the highest flexibility, each DMX port can be individually configured as DMX in or DMX out.

The MA 2Port Node WM (Wall Mount) is the perfect solution for converting a small amount of DMX universes at the same location where no additional power supply is available. The MA 2Port Node WM is powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) and therefore does not need additional power supply. The two DMX outputs are located at the bottom of the unit. The RJ45 connector for Ethernet connections is located inside the unit, but can be re-located for the rigging-version to the outside.
