MACs for Matty

Posted on Thursday, July 22nd, 2010


Channel 7’s The Matty Johns Show features Matthew Johns bringing his unique and entertaining take on rugby league backed by the game’s strongest panel of experts with extensive access to players and clubs. Plus each week, there’s plenty for the whole family with special guests, live performances, music and comedy

Bytecraft Entertainment has supplied a lighting rig that includes twelve Martin MAC2000 Profiles, eight MAC2000 Washes and ten MAC700 Profiles. Control is via two MA Lighting grandMA.

”The show is much more than a sports show with a fair bit of variety content too,” said Shannon Ryan, lighting designer and director for the show. “We generally use Martin MACs because I guess they have become industry standard. We know how they work and they’re always reliable.”

Michael Burton looks after the Martin MACs on one of the grandMA consoles whilst Shannon controls the studio lighting from the other console.

”We’ve been using the grandMA for years,” added Shannon. “I like the way that they are easy to customise to your own needs.”
