Ben Haynes – Director, Freedom Flying

“In the past we have seen many different types of computer controlled flying systems and knew that we had to be competitive in this area. Our customers required the repeatable accuracy of a computerized system, but we were reluctant to rush in and end up with the wrong product.
At Freedom Flying we deal in visions that we develop with a production’s creative team. We wanted a system that would not compromise those visions but instead would support creative effort and the operator. It needed to have a simple, flexible and comprehensive interface that could react to the needs and changes during the development stage of a production.
We have now found that with the Raynok system, combined with hoists from Hoist UK, and are delighted with the outcome.”

Julian Sleath – Technical Director, Canadian Opera Company

“We had rented a production of "The Handmaid's Tale" from Den Kongelige Opera (Copenhagen) which came with a revolving turntable but no control and positioning equipment.  Niscon Inc. was called upon to offer a solution and ultimately came up with a method of encoding the relative position of the turntable and used their Raynok Motion Control System to build a complex set of cues. 

They were extremely helpful in ongoing fine tuning, as the director and performers came to understand all the possibilities that their control system allowed us to do.  It is great to use a control system that extends what you are able to do - rather than being a force that limits the stage directions.”

Joseph Mobilia – Associate Principle at Fisher Dachs Associates (FDA)

“Niscon Inc. has provided a [for the Four Seasons Centre Project] system that seamlessly integrates control of the permanent motorized theatre systems and temporary elements specific to a production.  Niscon Inc.’s thorough understanding of the realities of theatre and show operations is reflected in a system that is safe, user-friendly and flexible.”

Timothy Sloane – Lead Automation Operator, Caesars Palace Colosseum Theatre, Las Vegas

“Hello Joe,

I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how pleased I am with RAYNOK.  The whole system is so user-friendly it is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the layout of the information display. 

The information is displayed in a logical and effective manner, that makes the creation of cues and the execution of manual moves very easy and safe.  I also like the fact that I can customize the display to suit my specific needs.  I’ve seen other interfaces and the efficiency and stability of RAYNOK far exceeds the competition. 

Last but not least, I would like to thank you for your attention to service.  I know without a doubt that if I ever have a problem or a question concerning RAYNOK, I’ll get personalized assistance in a timely manner.  I wish the best for NISCON, Inc. 

Congratulations on a superior product!”

 Gil Densham – President, Cast Software

“When looking at partnering on a project [such as the WYG-it 2], Cast Group was very careful about who would be chosen to work with them.

Niscon Inc. proved to be the right choice, they were not only on time and budget, but were also very professional and communicative with us, bringing lots of good ideas to the table.

If another project like this were to come along, Cast would involve Niscon Inc. again and we would strongly recommend them to anyone else seeking similar services.”

Stéphane Désautels, Directeur de site, Production TV – Générale – CBC/Radio-Canada, Studio 42 Montréal

"The control software designed by Niscon for the staging battens system located in our studio 42 is very reliable and permit a more efficient operation of our system with great conviviality"
