Welcome to Issue 13 of Leading Lights
from A.C. Lighting Inc.

Back to School

School is back in session and lighting professionals everywhere are sharpening their programming chops, as well as honing their video skills, to stay at the top of their game in our hyper-tech industry. Now is the time to sign up for the excellent Jands Vista and ArKaos product training sessions at this year's LDI Show in November.

LDI 2013 - November 22 - 24, Las Vegas, Nevada.

A.C. Lighting Inc., in conjunction with the LDInstitute, are proud to bring the best instructors from Jands and ArKaos to LDI for training. Last year's Jands Vista LDI training session sold out in advance of the show. Take advantage of the Early Bird Discounts and save big.

For the first time ever, the LDInstitute is offering ArKaos Media Server training sessions. Read the Video Road Test from PLSN later on in this newsletter and see why ArKaos Media Master is capturing the imagination of the lighting and video community. With special LDInstitute pricing in place, now is the time to learn ArKaos Media Master.

Study up and bring your teacher a bright and shiny apple. Better yet, bring your teacher a MacBook Pro as the Jands Vista and ArKaos platforms are PC and Mac compatible.

Read on for more information about these and other ground-breaking products we'll be exclusively showcasing on our booth at LDI, WFX and other shows this year - we hope to see you there.
