AC-ET Showcases New Chroma-Q & Jands Vista Lighting Solutions at Prolight & Sound

5th April 2011

The A.C. Entertainment Technologies stand (Hall 9.0, Stand E63) at Prolight & Sound 2011 will showcase a selection of leading lighting technologies. Exclusively distributed in Europe and the Middle East by AC-ET, the show sees the official launch of the new Jands Vista v2 software. There's also a preview of the new Chroma-Q® Studio Force™ Daylight white and Variable white LED lighting fixtures.

With over 200 leading industry brands, a vast, multi-million pound stockholding of new and used products, and a comprehensive range of in-house associated services, AC-ET provides a complete one-stop entertainment technology solution to customers around the world.

Chroma-Q Studio Force

Utilising the same core technologies as the innovative Color Force™ range, the new Chroma-Q Studio Force LED fixtures are equally at home for broadcast, film and TV lighting applications as they are in any other application normally utilising daylight or tungsten fixtures.

The range consists of the Studio Force D (Daylight white 6,000K CCT) and Studio Force V (Variable white 2,900K – 6,000K CCT) fixtures. Both products are available in a choice of 48" and 72" battens and a 12" multi-purpose version.

With outputs across the six models ranging from 5,000 up to 28,000 lumens, the fixtures offer at least twice the output of their RGBA colour variants.

Jands Vista v2

Vista v2, the new version 2 software, is now shipping on the entire range of Vista consoles.

After three years of intense development, extensive testing and finally, use on several major shows and events by beta-testers worldwide - including the opening ceremony of Turku, Finland as joint European Capital of Culture in 2011; the Fifth Gear Live Action Arena at the Autosport International 2011 show in Birmingham, UK; and the BURDA event at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, UAE - the software is now factory-standard with new Vista consoles and available as a free upgrade to existing users.

Jands recently demonstrated the Vista v2 (code named ‘Byron’) at the 2010 PLASA and LDI trade shows, generating a huge amount of interest in the new capabilities the software brings to the revolutionary Vista console. As well as a revamped visual interface, Vista v2 introduces a host of features, including:

• tracking backup – instantly switches control to a synchronised second console or PC if the main console fails for any reason
• integrated media server control – including automatic thumbnail import of content from most industry standard mediaservers
• matrix and video effects – runs intensity, colour, movement, even video files across LEDs or other fixture types arranged in columns and rows
• default and split fade times – provides a quick and easy way to set and edit cue timing, including separate up and down times for intensity
