Jands Vista 2 Byron is a major upgrade of the Vista lighting system, being shown at the AC Lighting booth. Free to existing users, this completely rewritten application builds on a visual approach. Key features include zero-configuration, automatic networking, and tracking backup that synchronizes a second console or PC. A second-generation timeline provides visual split fade times, a per-step timing structure for instantly setting fade and delay times for some or all the events in a step, and new filters that make it easier to see what’s going on with big rigs. The extended generic fixture model allows limitless use of non-standard or overlapping features and adapts to all types of new and unusual fixtures. The overhauled user interface reflects user feedback, with search functions built in, and provides a visual method of controlling media servers. New matrix layouts and effects are also included, and a command line window accepts keypad input for fixture selection, levels, timing, store, and other frequently used commands.
