Here is the latest news about Andy Voller's Moving Light Assistant Software, and some of the many shows using it. 


Following the Moving Light Assistant version 1.1 release which added support for the grandMA 2 console, version 1.1.1 is now released and available for download. This release is mainly a maintenance release, though a few new features have been added...

Sochi 2014 Olympic & Paralympic Opening Ceremonies. Moving Light Assistant was used in Sochi to send the patch and 3D positions of the fixtures to the V676 console. Patch and position data was imported from AutoCAD into MLA and then sent to the console. For the Paralympic ceremonies, along side the V676 was a GrandMA 2 and an alpha version of MLA was used successfully to send the patch and 3D position information to the GrandMA via Telnet.
