Compulite Vector chosen for BBC production

Stagetec Distribution recently supplied a Compulite Vector console to moving light operator Andy Dobbs, for the latest BBC production of ‘Outtake TV’ at Television Centre in London.
Andy Dobbs has been involved in moving light control for many years and has worked with a wide range of consoles on major television productions, including the Eurovision Song Contest, ‘Top of the Pops’, and the Prince’s Trust Concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
Dobbs commented: "As a 'touch screen sceptic' I was very pleasantly surprised at the clarity, accuracy and general ease of use of the large colour touch screens on the Vector. At no point in the day did I curse them while prodding them with a blunt implement!
“I have been using Compulite consoles for 12 years and despite the range of new features on the Vector the intuitive graphical user interface and interactive dialogues ensured I was never left struggling to quickly achieve what I wanted. The displays are completely user configurable and a few minutes organising the layouts ensured I could instantly see the information I needed. The desk did what I asked of it, without any fuss. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, I am looking forward to using the Vector on future productions."
