  • Chroma-Q®, a world-renowned brand of premium performance LED lighting solutions, manufactured in North America, is announcing that it has acquired Jands Vista software and hardware lighting control systems.

    Jands Vista has been providing customers and end users with quality control software and hardware through a strong partnership with its distributors in North America [A.C. Lighting Inc.] and in Europe, the Middle East and Africa [A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd.] since 2004, where they relied on the “A.C. Group” for technical support and service.

    Vista has been adopted by a large range of leading lighting designers, specifiers, rental and production companies, venues, shows and events worldwide.

    Recognizing the potential for Vista lighting control systems in today’s market, and its existing synergy with the “A.C. Group” and Chroma-Q®, it was a logical move to have the Vista lighting control systems join Chroma-Q® and have Vista products benefitting from the Chroma-Q® in-house experience in building brilliant solutions.

    Vista being acquired by Chroma-Q® will improve long-term support and customer care of the brand and bring a whole new range of possibilities to the marketplace.

    Moving forward, new hardware design, development and manufacturing will be done in Toronto, Canada with the help of some specially hired R&D engineers. The software development will remain in Australia with its head developer and assistants, with new software developers being added to the team.

    To coincide with the change, Vista will now be branded as Vista by Chroma-Q® and will herald the launch of exciting new software and hardware options.

    Continuing to impress with its legendary timeline, visual interface, speed and ease of use, the Vista 3 software has been developed to dramatically enhance the existing feature set whilst also introducing a host of major new features such as; smart FX masters, the ability to merge multiple showfiles, a new colour engine, improved fixture visualizations, and a vastly expanded command line interface.

    Alongside the release of Vista 3, Vista by Chroma-Q® will also be announcing and showcasing two new control surfaces, the Vista MV and Vista EX.

    The Vista MV is a cost effective, compact USB control surface, featuring 5 playback faders, 15 playback buttons, grand master control and 4 user definable function keys. The MV is a perfect entry control solution or expansion to an existing Vista system.

    The Vista EX control surface offers additional hands-on control capabilities in a slim form factor. Stand-out features include, 12 faders, an incredible 60 playback buttons per page, 8 encoders and 12 function buttons. All of which is contained within a compact footprint that qualifies as “carry on” luggage.

    “The Vista control platform is unique to the lighting industry with its intuitive timeline and graphical user interface. We will continue developing on this aspect as well as bringing a new set of tools required for the shows of today and the future.” commented Paul Pelletier, Global Brand Manager for Chroma-Q® and Vista by Chroma-Q®.

    Vista by Chroma-Q® will continue to be sold and supported through its distributors in North America – A.C. Lighting Inc. and in Europe, the Middle East and Africa – A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd.

    Vista 3, Vista MV, and Vista EX will be at LDI October 19-21, 2018 in Las Vegas. Stop by the A.C. Lighting Inc. booth 951 to learn more about these highly anticipated products and for your demonstration of the Vista by Chroma-Q® range and other leading technologies.
