Oman’s ‘Salalah Tourism Festival’ has been launched with an extravagant pageant staged by 2,5000 performers.
As part of the opening event, lighting designer Ali Saab chose MA Lighting products to produce the show. He used an MA control system consisting of two grandMA full-size consoles, three MA video stations, three MA NSP (Network Signal Processors) and MA Digital Dimmer Touring 12 2.3kVA modules (Socapex EF 419). The lighting rig featured 56 Clay Paky Alpha Wash 575s, 40 Alpha Spot HPE 1200s, 20 Alpha Beam 1500s and 20 Alpha Beam 300s as well as SC15 (15 mm) and SC20 (20 mm) LED-screens, totalling 150 sq meters of surface.
Following the opening pageant, a series of concerts were held at the Al-Muroje Theatre. Saab chose an MA control system consisting of a grandMA full-size console, a MA video station, two MA NSPs (Network Signal Processors) and five MA Digital Dimmer Touring 12 2.3kVA modules (Socapex EF 419), for these productions.
“The grandMA is my favourite tool as it offers me exactly what I need,” said Saab, “A completely scalable system with a powerful back-up solution, feedback from all areas of the network as well as comfortable and flexible programming – that’s MA.”
