The Vista S1 – the console for the jetset.
The Vista S1 is a small and portable control surface that’s ideal if you have to travel a lot to deliver your shows, or if your venue doesn’t need lots of playbacks or has limited space.
Designed to be used with a laptop, the S1 is a powerful and flexible live console that’s compact enough to qualify as carry-on luggage. But don’t be fooled by its size: the S1 gives you five playbacks, including faders and flash buttons, a complete programming section with three encoder wheels, a rotary master fader, two LCD displays and lots more to make controlling your show a breeze.
What’s more, the S1 has all the inputs and outputs you need to connect to your rig and run the show:
- two DMX outputs to connect your lights and dimmers.
- a Timecode input so you can sync your show up to other devices.
- a Midi input that accepts Midi Show Control and Midi Timecode.
- two USB connectors for memory sticks and other peripherals.
- a ‘Kensington Lock’ attachment point to keep your console safe in public environments.
With the S1 you can fly your lightshow anywhere without even checking in any luggage.
