Ambersphere and the dot2 deliver for BGLX

November 2015

After being set up six years ago, under the guidance of Director Francis White-Robinson BGLX has become a fully fledged production house with an eclectic client base.

“I was pretty much bought up on MA consoles. My very first professional job was at Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre with a MA lighting grandMA1 light which I believe is still in use” states White-Robinson.  “When I went to university, I purchased a 2 port node and that quickly became the standard control along with OnPC.  Since then, I have used a grandMA2 on numerous occasions but the company has never been in the position to purchase one. Then I heard about the dot2.”

White-Robinson visited the Ambersphere stand at PLASA Focus in Leeds and spoke to Thor Andre from the Ambersphere Technical Sales team.  “We did a demo for Francis at the show which really impressed him,” explains Andre, “after we chatted on the phone about the various options that were available in the dot2 range.  He went for the dot2 XL-F which is the core console plus a fader wing.”

“I was immediately struck by the ‘MA characteristics’ on the dot2,” continued White-Robinson.  “If you are familiar with a grandMA2 then the dot2 functions are instantly recognisable. It is so user friendly and allows our clients to, very rapidly, get a good looking show up and running. In many of our events the window for any sort of rehearsal time is very limited.  The console’s flexibility has provided us with solutions we hadn’t thought possible.”

“From the moment I first spoke to Andre, Ambersphere’s service has been exceptional,” concluded White-Robinson.  “Andre has been consistently responsive and helpful. The sale was concluded efficiently without any hassle but of course Ambersphere’s service doesn’t end there and I feel we have established a very positive working relationship. This experience has led us to consider in investing in some of their other brands - Ayrton’s MagicBlades for example - as soon as BGLX is in a position to expand its inventory.”
