Appropriately named, the MA lighting dot2 Core is built to deliver the MA Lighting experience in a compact lighting console. It may be the smallest light board in the dot2 series, but it shares the same ease and power as the 2 larger models. In fact, the larger consoles, the dot2 XL-F and dot2 XL-B, can be seen as dot2 Core consoles with a fader wing or button wing already mounted to the chassis. Aside from the number of faders and playback buttons, these lighting desks are all created equal.

Each dot2 lighting console includes 4 X DMX outs (5pin XLR) to control 4,096 outputs. Additionally a dot2 Node4 can be used to provide 4 universes of control. An ethernet jack allows additional control via dot2 net, sACN, or ARTnet. Add an additional monitor via the DVI-D connector. MIDI I/O is standard.

Inputs include 3pin XLR jacks for timecode and audio sync, an analog remote jack, and a DMX input jack. Ethernet and MIDI in / out can be configured as necessary.

For convenience, all dot2 consoles include a 4pin XLR jack for a gooseneck worklight and 3 X USB ports.
