A New Dawn Arrives with the Worldwide Launch of Vista 3 by Chroma-Q

Chroma-Q®, who recently acquired and rebranded the Jands Vista lighting & media control system, has released the long anticipated Vista 3 software, which introduces a large number of exciting new features and improvements.

After receiving extensive user feedback, Vista 3 has been developed to dramatically enhance existing functionality and introduce an array of intelligent new features that appeal to both existing and new users. Some of the new features include the ability to merge multiple showfiles, a new colour engine that supports up to 11 colours, improved 2D fixture visualisations, customisable workspaces, a vastly expanded command line interface, and Smart FX masters.

These features all contribute to improving the entire user experience in creating and delivering fantastic looking shows, in addition to making the software even more intuitive to those users who are new to the Vista ecosystem.

Vista 3 user, LD Ben Inskip has been trialling the software on his shows. He commented: “Vista is getting better and better. The features in Vista 3 make everything quicker to access. Custom workspaces and the command line put even more at your fingertips. It allows me to try new things out really quickly and focus on adding intricate little touches to shows.” He continues: “Everything feels solid and reliable. I’m really excited to follow Vista as it continues to improve.”

Paul Pelletier, Chroma-Q's Global Brand Manager, has been working with the development team on Vista 3. “I know a lot of people have been eagerly looking forward to the announcement of Vista 3. It feels great to deliver what we believe is an impressive product, and hope users agree that it was worth the wait.”

Alongside Vista 3’s software launch, Vista by Chroma-Q is now shipping two new control surfaces - the Vista MV and Vista EX - which provide affordable hands-on  control suitable for any size or style of production.
