 Press Releases

  • A.C. Lighting Inc. is proud to be celebrating their fifteenth anniversary as the leading distributor of world-class lighting, rigging and video technologies in North America.

    A.C. Lighting Inc. began operations in 2003 to support the growth of UK-based parent company’s business plan to meet the specific needs of dealers and end users in the USA, Canada and Mexico.

    The company is the exclusive distributor in North America of world-class lighting and associated rigging and video technologies, including; Chroma-Q® LED lighting, Vista by Chroma-Q lighting control, Jands Vista lighting and media control, LumenRadio wireless lighting controls, ArKaos Pro media servers, and Prolyte staging and trussing.

    Continuing with their growth trend, in 2017 A.C. Lighting Inc. announced the addition of three new brands to their brand portfolio. Follow-Me, remote follow spot control system, and ProLights manufacturer of high value and high-performance range of lighting, video and effects products and Luminex Network Intelligence manufacturers of data distribution equipment for professional lighting, audio and video applications, all of which provide new technology and innovative products to the North American market.

    A.C. Lighting Inc. services the theater, film, television, worship, exhibition and commercial markets. Their vast choice and stockholding of products, accessories and consumables, coupled with in-house cable manufacturing facilities, provide a complete ‘one-stop’ service to meet all your lighting needs.

    Company Managing Director, JF Canuel remarked: “We have achieved this milestone by the dedication and hard work of our team and the high level of customer and technical support that they provide to our customers. We also attribute our growth and success to the strength of our customers and their dedication to our brands.”

  • 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 visualizsations, 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 on display during 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.

  • A.C. Lighting Inc., distributor of world-class lighting, rigging and video technologies, is pleased to introduce Follow-Me Lite, a remote follow spot control system at LDI 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

    Follow-Me is an independent cost-effective network-based software package that allows the user to utilize standard moving lights as follow-spots.

    The Follow-Me Lite software package is an economical choice for community theatre, educational, worship and corporate AV markets. It will easily follow 1 target using up to 3 fixtures. The system features ArtNet output and continuous beam size function. The Follow-Me Lite System controls the X, Y, Z axis, iris, zoom, intensity, color and the Z axis (height) offset from a midi board within the system. Follow-Me Lite is a standalone system that does not have integration capabilities with a console.

    Follow-Me eliminates the need for climbing spot operators therefore improving on show safety and removing the requirement traditional follow-spot hardware methods would need in transportation.

    A.C. Lighting Inc. announced their partnership with Follow-Me in last year at LDI and is excited to announce Follow-Me Lite as a new product edition to the Follow-Me portfolio.

    Visit A.C. Lighting Inc. at LDI October 19-21, 2018 in Las Vegas, booth 951, 1051, for your demonstration of the Follow-Me range and other leading technologies. To learn more about Follow-Me or A.C. Lighting Inc., please visit our website www.aclighting.com.
