Jands Vista PLASA Prize Draw Won By Lighting Student

6th October 2006

A.C. Lighting Ltd is pleased to confirm that Elizabeth Spencer, a student and freelance Production Electrician from Golders Green in London, is the winner of the company's Jands Vista prize draw at PLASA 06.

Elizabeth wins a 512 channel Vista lighting control system (with a list price of £896). Consisting of the Vista App software solution, a 512 channel DMX dongle and USB to DMX cable, the system provides full control of a lighting rig when installed on a laptop or desktop PC.

Elizabeth is in her second year studying Production Lighting at the Central School of Speech and Drama (CSSD) in London and decided to check out the Vista console whilst visiting PLASA 06 to catch up on the latest technologies.

She commented: "I'd heard about the Vista through colleagues in the industry and was keen to check it out for myself as it seemed a really interesting concept which was very different to other consoles I'd used. I really enjoyed watching the demo and was particularly impressed by how easy the console's visual layout made it to use - you don't have to go searching through loads of layers as everything's right in front of you all the time on the main screen."

Prior to starting the course Elizabeth studied for a Performing Arts Diploma and then took a gap year working at a local theatre, where she worked as a Venue Technician and learnt the basics of lighting.

On learning she'd won the Vista system Elizabeth commented: "I'm over the moon at winning this prize. The Vista system's great and I'm really looking forward to using it and showing it to others. I'm sure it will be a big help with my studies as well."

A.C. Lighting will be repeating the Vista prize draw at LDI 06 in October and is currently running a major online competition to win a 1024 channel Vista control system (with a list price of £4,200). For full details and to enter the competition, go to
