AC-ET Provides Lighting & Media Control Masterclass for BACKSTAGE ACADEMY with Jands Vista
8th May 2012
A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd. provided two one-day Jands Vista v2 ‘Masterclass’ seminars to students taking the Lighting Module of BACKSTAGE ACADEMY®’s Foundation Degree in Live Events Production.
The 16-month fast-track intensive course, led by Chief Operations Officer Robin Watkinson, provides students with the core practical skills needed to pursue a successful career in the professional events production industry. The invitation to participate underlined the fast growing popularity of the Jands Vista system in live events.
AC-ET’s Andy Mahaffey conducted the training at the LS-Live Studios in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. A range of different sized consoles from the Vista family allowed the two separate groups of students to have full hands-on training and see how flexible and accessible the system is.
The Masterclasses gave students an introduction to the Vista’s simple, consistent and powerful control of lighting fixtures, LED and media. Impressing them most were its ease of use and the intuitive nature of creating very accurate and detailed sequences.
Andy commented: "Watching how easily a group of people with a wide range of experience and backgrounds picked up the Vista v2 software was both rewarding and reinforces just how good the Vista v2 software now is."
Robin Watkinson adds, “The Jands Vista Masterclass is an important component of the Lighting Module and the practical training that students receive following the theory of light and the application of lighting design and programming. We are very privileged to have gained AC-ET’s support.”
The students’ comments really spoke for themselves. Rob South enthuses, "The Jands Vista is a great lighting desk - so simple and user friendly. Coming from another console background, I can safely say that Andy's converted me."
Harry Harrison stated, "Having trained on other consoles, I was amazed at how easy it was to create a show on the Vista. After Andy's training it will definitely be a desk I’ll choose in the future."
Following the overwhelming positive feedback for the Vista control platform from the training days, a Vista T2 console was one of the desks chosen by students for their end of module lighting practical assessment.
BACKSTAGE ACADEMY®’s first intake will graduate in early 2013 and the next will start in November.
