Jands Vista v2 Moscow open days
26 May 2011
Russia - Jands' exclusive Russian dealer, Show Atelier, recently held their first open day events to launch the new Jands Vista v2 software to their diverse customer base.
Show Atelier also took the opportunity to announce the winners of their online Get Your Own Vista competition, which Jands Europe sponsored with the donation of the first and second prizes - a Jands Vista M1 console with an 128 channel dongle and a Jands USB-DMX interface with 128 channel dongle respectively.
The two open day workshops took place in different venues, the first at Moscow's Fomenko Theatre and the second at the Theatre & Arts College # 60.
Each day started with an in-depth presentation by Jands Europe's Neil Vann on the Vista v2 software and its many possibilities, with an overview of the power and simplicity that this dynamic control system offers.
Areas covered included tracking backup - the instant switching of control to a synchronised second console or PC if the main console fails; simple media server control - including automatic thumbnail import of content from most industry standard media servers; effects - including the running of intensity, colour, movement and video files across LEDs and other fixture types, and the variety of timing options which provide quick and easy methods of setting and editing cue timing, from separating up / down times to individual parameter times.
The demo consoles were set up each day so Vann could illustrate hands-on three areas of control offered by Vista v2 - lights, media servers and LED fixtures, and give the wide range of attendees a chance to see the Vista in action for themselves.
Says Vann, "Events like this are invaluable, and really put us in touch with both new and existing users, so we can listen to and learn from their comments and views. Everyone attending was genuinely impressed by Vista v2 and the whole Vista product range, and excited by what it can bring to their specific companies, operations and environments. We had the time, space and a nice relaxed environment in which to demonstrate and explain the products and answer some very focused queries. Show Atelier worked hard in attending to details, and together we produced well organised workshops that resulted in lots of positive feedback."
From Show Atelier's viewpoint, Alexey Nenashev says, "This type of event is vitally important both for us and Jands Europe, whose technical support is excellent. It is good to see their representatives here in Russia meeting end users in person. The product information and demonstrations were well thought out and easily understandable, and we think the Vista v2 software provides many solutions and is a perfect product. Seminars like this help to present it in the best way and for more information in Russia, Show Atelier offer a dedicated Russian web site - www.jandsvista.ru."
The Vista competition generated plenty of interest from Show Atelier's customers, so it was a hard task to decide on the winners. First was Denis Glinka from Kemerovo, who is the lucky winner of a Jands Vista M1 console complete with 128 DMX channel dongle. Second prize of the Jands DMX interface plus 128 channel dongle went to Sergey Martianov from St Petersburg, and third was Roman Orlov from Ryazan, who won a LightConverse 3D lighting simulation package from Show Atelier.
