Stage CL Compact Lighting Console

Jands Vista I3 Lighting Console

If you're running a small lighting rig in a venue, as a rental, or in a retail space, you've probably upgraded to LED lights. Why? Because modern LEDs can produce any colour without the need for filters, so you can produce fantastic combinations of colours with just a few lights.

Sounds great, but you've probably noticed that when it comes to choosing a control console most of the ones available either aren't designed to control colour and intensity or are way more complicated (and expensive) than required.

This is why Jands have created the Stage CL.

SIEL 2013 WinnerFull control, easy to use

Designed specifically for LED fixtures but just as suitable for conventional lights the Stage CL gives you full control of your LEDs and is incredibly easy to use.

Simple manual controls

Each of the twelve channels has a Saturation encoder and a Hue encoder that you can adjust to set the colour you want. As you turn the dials, a LED on the channel shows the colour you're creating.
This is so intuitive that even someone with no experience of lighting can grasp it immediately. And of course, each channel has the traditional fader fader and flash button to set the intensity of the light.

Grouping channels

Need to speed things up? You can group any number of channels together and use just one set of pots to set the colour for all of them. There's a selection of colour presets to choose from, and you can switch between full and half saturation, both at the click of a single button.

All the automation you need

As well as giving you total manual control, the Stage CL's easy to use store features enable you to create sophisticated shows quickly and easily.

One-press recording

To record a sequence, simply press the Record button, adjust your lights, then press one of the Scene, Chase or Cuelist buttons to store it. To play it back, just tap the button where you stored it. You can adjust the playback speed and chase rate manually with the fade time and chase speed controls.

To set up a chase, you can save each step or create a pattern and the Stage CL will automatically build the chase to run across the lights you've chosen.

You can save multiple cues and organise them however you like using the touch screen, then back them up to a memory stick or portable drive through the USB ports on the back panel.

Take a snapshot

Need to make a quick change on the fly? Tap the Snapshot button to save the look you have on stage. The Stage CL holds that look while you adjust any of the other controls to create your next look, then fades into it when you tap the button again.
Simple touch-screen interface
You can do just about everything without needing the screen, but when you want to get into detail, the Stage CL touch-screen display provides an easy to use interface. Here you can patch your lights, monitor playback, edit scenes, chases & cues, adjust fade times, apply preset colours and set up the console preferences.

Compact, functional and funky

The Stage CL is more than a superb set of lighting controls, it looks and feels great too.

A quality finish

The Stage CL has high-quality 60mm faders, push-button encoders, responsive tactile buttons and multi-colour LED indicators, all packaged in a smooth and compact chassis that you can carry in one hand.

Room to move

With the Stage CL you can control up to 512 DMX channels, connecting either through the DMX-512 output or the Ethernet output (if your lights support Art-net).

Made for LEDs

The Stage CL literally is made for LEDs. We realised that there were lots of people out there using LED lights who were only getting a fraction of the power and flexibility these lights offer.

The Stage CL gives you all the manual controls and automation you need to get the most out of your LEDs. Best of all, it's so easy to use you don't need to know anything about lighting.

It's simple really: if you use LED lights, the Stage CL is the console for you.
