Jands Unveil Winners of Vista L5 Console Launch Competition
Jands is pleased to announce the winners of their competition celebrating the recent launch of its Vista L5 flagship media and lighting control console -- the latest addition to the Vista range.
The competition to win a MacBook Pro running the innovative Vista v2 software was sponsored by Jands' distribution partners for Europe and the Middle East, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd., and in North America, A.C. Lighting Inc., and open to industry professionals in these regions.
The competition proved popular, with an overwhelming response, reflecting the interest in the Vista L5, which received its official trade show launch at Prolight+Sound 2012 in Frankfurt in March.
The lucky winners, who were selected at random from the entrants who correctly answered the competition question, were David Weeks from the UK and Andrew Anguiano from the US.
David Weeks works at the 1,500-capacity live-music venue, 53 Degrees in Preston, UK. He had not used Jands Vista before, and his first impressions of the Vista L5 after seeing the video were, "To say that I'm quite impressed is an understatement! The way the screen is laid out, it all made sense -- it's a lovely bit of design. I will now be quite frustrated with our current house desk."
When Weeks visited AC-ET's Northern office in Leeds to collect his MacBook Pro, he received a full product demonstration on the Vista L5. He relays, "The power of Vista by comparison takes this to a whole new level."
The North American winner, Andrew Anguiano is a sophomore in college and lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he also works at the Life Bridge Church as a technician and media coordinator. He has had considerable experience with Jands Vista and regularly creates shows using a Vista S3. Anguiano says, "I think Jands produces a great product with Vista. Their technical services team has always been extremely helpful in answering questions."
The new Vista L5 media and lighting control console was designed by listening to the creative people who deliver some of the most stunning shows worldwide every day, the company says. Its features include a 21" high definition Wacom pen tablet for easily managing today's lighting rigs -- including large numbers of moving lights, media servers, and LEDs, as well as the tools to control any design.
