      The lights operator is located in the back of the auditorium above the balcony.

      All our intelligent lights are controlled via MA-NODE v3. It is not possible to reach them directly via XLR line.

      It is possible to communicate with MA-NODE using the ATR-NET protocol or sACN. But you need at least 6 supported universes in your desk, but you can send DMX data directly to our MA3 lighting desk, which will take care of the necessary communication. And it is also our recommended procedure.

      The lights cannot be hung or redirected, without prior agreement with the us. And smart lights in front of the curtain can't be hung at all!

      The cabin has a MA3 light CRV lighting counter.

      The current light plan and other technical information on setting up and using the lights can be downloaded here.
