The State University of New York at Geneseo has purchased a Jands Vista T2 full size lighting console for its School of the Arts faculty.
After evaluating several popular industry lighting consoles, Johnnie was impressed by the Jands Vista so arranged a demonstration for himself and his students at the University, provided by Jands exclusive North American distributor, A.C. Lighting Inc.
The Vista’s modern, graphic interface, pen-tablet control and ease of use made a big impression on Johnnie and the students, so he purchased a full size T2 lighting console for the University’s theatre via local company, BMI Supply in Queensbury, New York.
Johnnie commented that he has never had a lighting desk that is so easy to use. The lighting console is primarily being used in the University’s 386-seater Alice Austin Theatre to control a lighting rig which includes various Altman, ETC, Elation and Vari-Lite intelligent and conventional fixtures. The Vista has also been used in the campus’s 950-seater Wadsworth Auditorium and 150-seater Robert Sinclair Black Box.
In addition to using the stage lighting console on-site, the students also frequently edit their shows away from the campus using the free PC and native Mac-based Vista offline editor software.
