Another new product that I‘m excited about is the Jands Vista lighting console. It brings
the time-line-based video-editing paradigm into the lighting world, enabling an entirely
new (and intuitive) way to think about programming both theatrical and moving lights.
You can read more about this console in Greg Persinger‘s product review on page 92, and
in the Jeremy Camp tour article on page 18.

Church Production Magazine reviews Vista T2

Church Production Magazine

In his review Greg Persinger, principal consultant with Design 2020 Church Media Consultants, says “I can tell you that with the graphical interface, the timeline, the drag and drop features, and the common shortcut keys, the Vista has a very easy to use and powerful clip editor that allows you to create and customize your lighting looks quickly and easily. For me, what sets the Vista apart from any other moving light console is that editing is so fast and easy.”

Vista install at Christ’s Church of the Valley

Christ Church of the Valley


Christ‘s Church of the Valley in Arizona wanted to make their message even clearer to the congregation of 10,000 people, so they invested in a multi-million dollar lighting, video and audio system.

Director of Lighting, Brett McFarland, explains why he chose a Jands Vista console to control their state of the art lighting system:

“Part of our mandate is to always promote excellence. However, we are in the unique position that we often have inexperienced operators. With a modern console, you can imagine the headaches this can cause. Add the fact that we run four services a weekend and have events happening throughout the week, and providing excellence is a tall order. With the Vista we are able to train a volunteer operator to run and program the console in about 30 minutes versus several days, and the copy and paste functions combined with the timeline features have cut my programming time in half.”
