A.C.T Lighting, Inc. has become the newest Behind the Scenes Pledge-a-Product partner. The PLASA Foundation’s Behind the Scenes program is an industry charity providing financial assistance to entertainment technology professionals who are seriously ill or injured. Program grants may be used for basic living and medical expenses.
A.C.T Lighting plans to donate to Behind the Scenes a portion of the profits from sales of MA Lighting’s new compact range of dot2 consoles. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting in North America.
“We’re pleased to join the Pledge-a-Product program and support the important work that Behind the Scenes does for our injured and ill colleagues,” says Brian Dowd, vice president of sales and marketing at A.C.T Lighting. “We will present the program with an annual check at USITT based on the sales from MA’s dot2 range, which we expect to be very popular products in the industry. Great products, great cause – it’s a perfect match.”
“I am both excited and grateful to have A.C.T join the Behind the Scenes Pledge-a-Product program,” states Rick Rudolph, chair of the PLASA Foundation. “The U.S. premier of the MA dot2 family at USITT was the perfect time to announce the addition of A.C.T to our extremely important program. They now join other industry-leading companies who are providing ongoing sources of revenue to the charity that give the assurance that we will be able to continue helping our colleagues in need far into the future.”
The dot2 range consists of three lighting consoles: dot2 core, dot2 XL-F, dot2 XL-B; two playback expansion wing solutions: dot2 F-wing and dot2 B-wing; the dot2 Node4 (1K) network output node; the dot2 onPC console software and the dot2 3D visualization software solutions.
Designed for small and mid-sized projects and venues, dot2 offers advanced functionality with outstanding ease-of-use. Full tracking backup is available via plug and play networking. The product range is suitable for theater, touring, corporate, television and educational lighting environments.
“MA Lighting has a reputation for quality and reliability across the industry, and we’re sure the new dot2 range will quickly acquire fans whose purchases will translate to more contributions for the coffers of Behind the Scenes,” says Dowd.
