Jands is pleased to announce the winners of a high-profile competition celebrating the recent launch of its Vista L5 flagship media and lighting control console – the latest addition to the exciting Vista range.

The competition to win a MacBook Pro running the innovative Vista v2 software was sponsored by Jands’ distribution partners for Europe & the Middle East – A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd. – and North America – A.C. Lighting Inc. – and open to industry professionals in these territories.

The competition proved extremely popular, with an overwhelming response from professionals in many countries and industry sectors. This reflects the high level of interest in the Vista L5, which received its official trade show launch at the Prolight+Sound 2012 exhibition 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 1500 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 David visited AC-ET‘s Northern office in Leeds to collect his MacBook Pro, he received a full product demonstration on the Vista L5 after which he was left even more amazed by it.

He particularly liked the extra large screen and thought the pixel-mapping capabilities were much more intuitive than his venue‘s current console. David says “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, US where he also works at the Life Bridge Church co-ordinating technicals and media. He has had considerable experience with Jands Vista and regularly creates shows using a Vista S3.

Andrew says, “I think Jands produces a great product with Vista. Their technical services team has always been extremely helpful in answering questions.

He intends to continue using Vista and is looking forward to gaining more experience across the range.

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. It’s features include a 21-inch 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 simply, powerfully and visually.
